Research shows that we have 1000 times more stress today than our great-grandparents did! The pace of society is increasing tremendously. At the same time, our traditional social support systems are failing.
Stress affects our health behavior in relation to diet and other health habits, and ultimately our risk for many of the lifestyle diseases people are dying of today.
To help you sort through all of this, and develop your own plan for managing stress in your life, Dr. Roy Vartabedian and Debi Silber discuss the details of a 3-step system to (1) decrease the number of stressors in your life, (2) change your attitude about things you can't change in your life, and (3) use coping mechanisms to strengthen your body so it can withstand the inevitable stress you face daily.
Debi gives her best stress reduction tips from working with clients as a nutritionist, fitness trainer, and Whole Health Coach from the home setting--all the way to corporate boardrooms across the country.
