By Lynell Burmark and Lou Fournier

How much of your sleep, sanity, and hair did you lose today? If you think that stress is the unavoidable price of life, it’s time to think again.

This book combines down-to-earth practicality with soaring inspiration as it explores new definitions of stress and its consequences. Rather than examining the problem from the usual perspective of stress management, it entirely changes the context of stress through far-reaching discoveries about how to defuse it. The authors apply their findings closely to the world of the busy educator.

In these pages, you will discover:

• What stress symptoms really indicate
• How clutter obfuscates our internal clarity
• How to reframe our relationships with other people as healing connections
• The potential for resourcefulness in seemingly hopeless situations
