Where does stress come from? According to Andrew Bernstein it comes from your thoughts about your circumstances. More specifically, stress is created by a particular kind of thought that humans happen to excel at. He realized that the antidote to stress and the key to far greater resilience is not exercise or physical relaxation, but finding these stress-producing thoughts and dismantling them. He created a process called ActivInsight that helps you do this on your own in just seven steps. With compassion, intelligence, and humor, this book offers a complete reeducation in the nature of stress, permanently changing the way you relate to challenges in order to live a happier and healthier life.--[book cover]
