Here's A Preview Of Chapter 1:This book is not just another "anti-stress" book. Here, we will not be concerned with only reducing the symptoms of stress. Rather, we'll try to understand exactly what stress is and the role it plays in our lives. We'll attempt to dig deep to really understand the real sources of our anxiety and how to take ownership of them. Using the power of habit and several techniques for smoothing out the stressful wrinkles in our day-to-day lives, we'll move towards a real-world solution to living with less stress, more confidence and a deep spiritual resilience that will insulate you from the inevitable pressures of life. We will address physical, emotional, relational, spiritual, and cognitive and behavioral symptoms of stress.

By adopting a trusting, open and relaxed attitude, we'll bring something more of ourselves to relationships of all kinds. This books will take a look at dating and relationships without stress and worry, as well as ways to bring tranquility and balance into your home and family life.

Emotional intelligence by Daniel Goleman.The groundbreaking bestseller that redefines intelligence and success Does IQ define our destiny? Daniel Goleman argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, and that our emotions play major role in thought, decision making and individual success. Self-awareness, impulse control, persistence, motivation, empathy and social deftness are all qualities that mark people who excel: whose relationships flourish, who are stars in the workplace. With new insights into the brain architecture underlying emotion and rationality, Goleman shows precisely how emotional intelligence can be nurtured and strengthened in all of us.
