Reducing Stress Jan 24, 2004
As the other reviewer said this book is for everyone and as the writer himself says this book wont make your stress disappear from your life it can only help you minimize it. And when I bought this book it sure did minimize my work-related stress that affected everything in my life but it still remained there. The more I minimized it the more it grew. I never were more confused until I re-read the book only to find the line I thought I've read and there it was saying "Stress is infectious". Soon after, I said bad-bye to the job of my dreams which shocked the world around me when they knew how madly in love I was with that workplace. Then as I have felt it in the beginning it turned up to be that I was drowning and that if I didn't quit that job I would have refused myself the lifejacket So my advice to all of you who deal with stupid stress generator people is :
BE BLIND, DEAF and ignore them IF YOU are that strong, or If you're weak like "I was" create a lifejacket for yourself, grab it, swim to some other place. And as you know it the biggest city on earth which must have billions of work positions available is not even bigger than your smallest nail - when you look at it in the globe and an usual globe is bigger than thousands of nails put together :) Think about it!
Something else that may help you too is Charlie Chaplin's saying "Life is a tragedy when you look at it in close up but a Comedy in long shot".

Some of these manager books are not just for managers. They could be read and enjoyed by all employees. Of all the books I have read, this one seems to be the most wide ranging and could help everyone in your office.
Let's admit it. Work and life in general can be stressful. How we cope with stress can be a key to our success. This book will show you how to reorganize your work practices. It also explains how thinking positively can reduce stress.
"Make sure your home office is separate from your living space." -pg 25
Well, I fail that one.
"Start each day stress-free by straightening up the night before." -pg. 40
Learning to say no is something I really have to work on. Some people do find it difficult to say no because they are afraid of causing offense. Sometimes you just have to be assertive, after all, it is your life!
There is a section on making a time to relax. there are exercises and relaxation techniques you can use and this makes the book very practical. Deep breaths, deep breaths....there, see you feel so much better now. If anything helps, breathing will!
