Publisher's Summary

A guidebook for the journey from exhaustion to enlightenment.
Chronic multitasking and ever-increasing demands on our time and energy have caused a neurochemically based dependence on sources of stress and stimulation to provide fuel for our chaotic lifestyles. While this may boost performance in the short term, studies have consistently shown 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.
Stressaholic explains the impact of chronic stress on the body, mind, and spirit, and shows how a simple shift in mindset can dramatically alter the body's response to stress. The Stressaholic Recovery Process restores system-wide resilience toward stress in five simple steps, which include:


Rest to balance brain chemistry with strategic relaxation and recovery
Repair to calm and nourish cells with energy-enhancing nutrients
Rebuild to strengthen mental and physical fitness to optimize energy
Rethink to optimize your perspective to see stress as a challenge instead of a threat
Redesign to develop "BEATs" that provide structure for ongoing energy management.
Stressaholic shows you how to win the war on stress without limiting your progress by creating an optimal performance pulse of stress and recovery for life. With easy-to-implement tips and real-world examples of individuals and organizations that have turned stress into sustainable drive, Stressaholic will guide you on your journey from exhaustion to enlightenment!
