Overview

Being calm is a highly sought after personal trait, one that is good to have and difficult to maintain.

More About This Book

Overview

Being calm is a highly sought after personal trait, one that is good to have and difficult to maintain. Some people exhibit a calm state but are emotionally flat and lack passion in their interactions. Others use a rehearsed routine to be calm but do not understand why their routine works. Others utilize neither facade nor routine and have a zest for life, but passionately wish they could do so calmly.

Calm is a book that trains you to use the instincts you already possess at the moment when they are most needed, rather than days later when you reminisce about what you should have done. Your brain naturally signals you when a stressor is present. Your mind can use this stressor to respond with even more stress or to remain calm and creatively solve the problem. Your spiritual maturity identifies which problems are yours to solve and which are not, again, leaving you calmer.

Calm demonstrates how to use the stress of daily life to become a calmer person. The message is that the worst thing you can do is respond to stress, stressfully. "Stress" may be what life offers, but it need not be what you experience.

    A must have book. It will change your life

    Reading a book about reducing stress can in itself be stressful, and Dr. Schacher gets that. His book does not bark out orders or demean readers, rather it presents information in a simple and informative fashion that leaves readers confident, and well, quite frankly calm. With a solid grasp on what stress is and what it does, "Calm" explains why one day a lost contact lens is no big deal and why on another day it feels like the end of the world. The tone of the book is encouraging without being pushy or arrogant. It engages readers and makes them a part of the self discovery rather than an outsider. The best thing about Calm is that the steps are easy to understand and apply but even easier to continue using.
