Overview

Stop Living Life Like an Emergency is for anyone caught up in the fast lane of life, who feels under the gun, and doesn't know how to live any other way. We have too much to do and not enough time to do it. We're overwhelmed, we're feeling the stress, our days are in chaos, and we don't know how to change the toxic habits that ruin our lives. Diane Sieg, a 20-year emergency room veteran and certified Lifestyle Counselor, says that it's time we deal with stress as the life-threatening affliction it is. After seeing thousands of crisis situations, she has come to realize that we create a lot of our own emergencies by trying to do too much, too fast, too often. Stop Living Life Like an Emergency explains how you can rejuvenate your life, increase your time, and rediscover the joy of living.

    This is not your ordinary self-help book!

    My thanks goes to Diane Sieg for writing Stop Living Life Like an Emergency and sharing her self-care strategies in such a refreshing way - this is not your ordinary self-help book. It is fun to read, makes a whole lot of sense, and helps old stubborn gals like me see just how easy change can be. Once I got into the book I soon discovered that I couldn't wait for the next story. It was such a fun read and the stories kept me turning the pages. The way Diane weaves human emergencies into everyday life situations is brilliant. It makes so much sense. It was easy to see the problems and connect with them. It was also an eye opener to stressful lifestyles I unconsciously practice and what can happen if I don't make a change. Diane¿s book is truly a practical guide for what to do to overcome self-destructive ways with down-to-earth strategies on how to make productive and effective changes.
