    Stress and anxiety affect us all - but some people seem to cope better than others. What makes the difference? If we learn to calm our minds, Easwaran says, we can find the center of strength within us all. Life will inevitably send trials, from minor irritations to major crises, but we can choose how to respond. We can learn to access the inner resources of energy, love, and wisdom we need to ride the waves of life minute by minute, day by day.
