Things don’t cause stress. Things merely ‘trigger’ it. Let’s say that you are running late to an important meeting and you’re stuck in peak hour traffic feeling super stressed out. The traffic is not the cause of your stress, the traffic is always there during peak hour, you know this because you sit in this traffic each and every day. Your failure to leave home or work earlier is also not the cause of your stress. The negative reaction of the boss you work for and the other people you’re going to be late for is not the cause of your stress. These are all just things. And whilst those things can cause real problems in your life which should be addressed, the stress is not the problem. The stress is simply your reaction to the problem.
So learning how to respond and react to stress and being aware of the messages you are sending to yourself in your own head when you're feeling stressed out is going to get you started living that stress free life. If you would like to discover new ways of dealing with stress and making stress disappear this book is for you.
