Publisher's Summary

Trying to live a completely stress-free life is a zero-sum game. The true goal of your relationship with stress is to figure out how to manage it effectively, how to use it to build and support a meaningful, resilient life.

In these 18 enriching and inspiring lectures, discover how to manage and minimize the stress in your life. You'll explore the nuances of stress in ways you never really considered. These include types of stress (such as traumas, moderate stressors, and activities of daily life) and the idea that what you experience in life is really just your brain's response (using memory and reasoning) to raw input and stimuli. You'll also explore the relationship between emotion and stress, including the idea that expressing your rage could actually be making you angrier.

Dr. Bonura fills these lectures with scientifically backed techniques, behavior modifications, and exercises you can use to build a personalized toolkit to better manage your stress response. You'll learn about responsible detachment from stressful situations, the importance of ruminating right after a traumatic event, the ways physical affection helps with healing, and much more.

Rooted in scientific findings from experiments, research papers, and case studies, these lectures offer you nothing less than a bold new way of facing (and appreciating) daily life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.
