We all know it. We all experience it. It’s the human condition – but through this book, you will learn to transcend stress.
Stress creeps into every moment of our lives. It influences our relationships, impacts our body, works its way into our conversations, sparks non-nourishing behaviors, and forces us to do things we’d never want to do. It’s infectious; it’s relentless . . .
Drawing on decades of experience working with individuals in extreme, high-pressure situations – including business leaders, world-class athletes, members of the military, Special Forces, and those in crisis – davidji will show you how to handle any type of stress that life throws at you. With his trademark easy-to-understand and entertaining writing style, he will transform your understanding of stress using time-tested techniques; cutting-edge science; real-world, practical applications; and in-the-moment stress busters.
How you respond to the world around you determines the fabric of your life – and one read of destressifying will enhance your performance at work, at home, and in the face of daily surprises. This book will allow you to determine the speed at which life comes at you and guide you to deeper fulfillment, greater empowerment, and true peace of mind.
