Book Discovery: Mastering Stress, Maximizing Success by Dr. L.L. Gill LPC
What is causing stress in your life right now? And, how do you deal with it?
Stress is an unavoidable part of life. No matter what age or social status, every individual experience stress in varying degrees. Stress gets such a bad reputation as it is not a pleasant feeling and has been proven to cause or exacerbate certain diseases. However, not all stress is created equal.
Feeling stressed is a natural reaction especially if it is about something that matters to the individual experiencing it. For example, stress brought about by going into a job interview or preparing for a test is a natural reaction that can help someone put more focus on the task at hand. Stress, of course, can be a curse especially when it is recurring and becomes unmanageable. Stress can be a blessing or a curse. It can be benign, but in some cases, it can be malignant.
Stress itself is not the problem. It is the way that we handle and manages the stimuli that make it helpful or debilitating. Mastering Stress, Maximizing Success takes the focus away from stress itself and puts the focus on our responses. In this book, Dr. L.L. Gill urges her readers to ask themselves — What am I prepared to do about this stress that I am experiencing?
This book teaches readers how to constructively handle stress. It provides insights that can be used to manage life's circumstances, expected and unforeseen that causes stress. It teaches the readers to move their focus from the source of stress and invest in healthy habits that they can use to manage it. It is only through effective stress management that one can move on to accomplish the things that are necessary to their success.
We are living in a fast-paced, hyped-up, stressful world. Mastering Stress, Maximizing Success provides its readers with the tools to navigate this hectic world and be successful in it.
