'Stressaholic' Helps Readers with Stress
Chronic multitasking and ever-increasing demands on a person's time and energy have caused a neurochemically-based dependence on sources of stress and stimulation to provide fuel for chaotic lifestyles. While this may boost performance in the short term, studies consistently show that when stress hormones are elevated over time, they create the worst form of internal wear and tear: decreasing productivity, wasting time, and even killing brain cells. As a result, modern society is tired and wired, suffering from physical exhaustion while mentally amped up and unable to get adequate rest.
In her new book, "Stressaholic: 5 Steps to Transform Your Relationship with Stress," Dr. Heidi Hanna, author of the "New York Times" Bestseller, "The Sharp Solution," reveals the impact of chronic stress on the body, mind, and spirit and delineates how a simple shift in mindset can dramatically improve readers' relationship with stress.
"Do you constantly feel as if there are not enough hours in the day? Are you constantly connected to a technologic communication leash? If you answered yes, you are not alone," says Dr. Hanna. "The vast majority of workers say they would not want their boss's job, while more than a third of workers say their jobs are harming their physical or emotional health and nearly half say job pressures are interfering with their personal relationships. Medical experts estimate that 75-90% of doctor visits are stress related!"
Stress in and of itself is not bad, and is actually utilized for growth when balanced with adequate recovery. The solution to stress addiction is to build in and prioritize optimal rest and relaxation on a holistic level-body, mind, and spirit-in order to consistently recharge and create a more resilient operating system.
