Overview

With stress now as American as apple pie, it's easy to become cynical and scorn simple remedies. But according to Brian Luke Seaward, Ph.D., developing a positive attitude is the best way to deal with the inevitable stress of life.

In Stressed Is Desserts Spelled Backward, Seaward recounts true tales of belief and hope that exemplify how the right attitude can bring success and deeper satisfaction to life even in the face of the toughest challenges.

Boost your spirit and lighten your heart with stories of people who have discovered the better side of stress by experiencing the wonder of serendipity, exercising the power of optimism, and working their funny bone.

Everyone must deal with stress, and changing your attitude toward it is the best way of coping. With Stressed Is Desserts Spelled Backward, discover how you can have your stress—and eat your cake, too!

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
t's very difficult to find the words to describe the books written by Brian Luke Seaward. If a book is over 150 pages, it must have something about it to hold my attention.. Stressed is Desserts spelled backwards is a book that you don't want to end. It's one of the rare books that I'm able to read in one sitting, and at the same time go back and read parts of it again and again. Different stories and antecdotes within this book resonate within a person at different phases in his or her life and

Meet the Author

Brian Luke Seaward is renowned nationally and internationally as an expert in the field of stress management, mind-body-spirit healing and health promotion. The wisdom of Brian Luke Seaward can be found quoted in PBS specials, college lectures, medical seminars, boardroom meetings, church sermons, keynote addresses, and graduation speeches all over the world. It has been said that he looks like James Taylor, dresses like Indiana Jones, and writes like Mark Twain. In the role of traveler, visionary, mystic, healer and mentor, Brian Luke Seaward has created a legacy in the field of wellness and health promotion for all to share.
In addition to teaching several thousand students at the University of Illinois, University of Maryland, The American University, the University of Colorado, and the University of Northern Colorado, not to mention thousands of workshop participants, Dr. Seaward, a TEDx speaker, has shared the insights of meditation with the staff at the White House (’90-94), taught stress management techniques with various heads of state, and coached relaxation techniques to several Olympic athletes, Broadway actors, media personalities, and leaders of several multinational corporations. His corporate clients include: Hewlett Packard, Motorola, Procter & Gamble, Conoco Oil, Quaker Oats, John Deere, BP-Amoco, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Glaxo-Smith-Kline, Organic Valley Dairy, Seagate, the US Army and many others. An extremely popular speaker at various conferences from the National Wellness Institute, American Journal of Health Promotion and the Institute of Noetic Sciences to the National Fibromyalsia Association and Healing Touch International, Luke leaves everyone inspired, educated and entertained. Through it all, he reminds us, stress knows no demographic boundaries. His colleague and mentor Larry Dossey, M.D. says, "Dr. Seaward daringly goes beyond the usual approach to the subject (of stress) to speak of the soul and of human spirituality because he realizes that stress management and maximal health are impossible to attain unless the questions of life's meaning are addressed."

Former Good Morning America host, Joan Lunden says, “Luke's words have touched my life profoundly and helped me to find grace and dignity, the patience and compassion needed to navigate my ever-changing course. They have helped me understand that it is the way I choose to see the world that I will create the world I see.”
