About the Book:

Twentieth century has been labeled as an age of anxiety. Today, at the beginning of the twenty first century, stress as a condition of life has taken the form of a threat. In this context, this book is a meaningful effort in suggesting ways for coping with stress. The focus is on making life easier to live.

The author has analyzed the anatomy of stress and dealt with various stressors from cognitive as well as behavioral perspective. At the same time the author has made an attempt to synthesize Cognitive and Behavioral approaches to stress management with priceless Indian spiritual heritage. The work by the author is holistic and rooted in nativity.

The book echoes around the theme: people are slaves of their beliefs, attitudes and values rather than the real situations. The author has proposed certain practical and simple mechanisms to do away with these negative and destructive thoughts/beliefs. These are also supplemented by the behavioral measures to be adopted.

This book is recommended strongly for managers, trainers, counselors, various professional, students, youth, couples and educated housewives.
