“I KNOW YOU HAVE STRESS.”
How do I know?
Simple. Because, you are alive. Also, you have picked up this book.
Wars, famine and plague were the prime causes of human misery in the centuries gone by. Over the last couple of decades, we have been able to ward off diseases, income levels and life expectancy have increased, and the world has seen its most peaceful time ever. But, instead of being happy and joyful we are stressed – a lot. Why did that happen? The change over the last few years had been rapid, and none of us were ready for it. We embraced everything that the changing world threw at us without realizing the deep impact it had caused. It is time to pause, reflect and take action before stress becomes the plague of this century.
Why is stress becoming the cause of misery and ailments in this era?
What is stress exactly, and what are its major causes?
How does social networking in the virtual world create stress?
How can one manage stress to mitigate its effect?
All these questions and many more get answered in this book that helps you identify your causes of distress and help you de-stress.
