Turn Your Melodrama Into A Mellow-Drama
Does your life seem to have as many ups and downs as a soap opera? Then, I highly recommend you read this book from Richard Carlson, PH.D.
With more than ten million copies sold in a wide variety of languages. Don't Sweat The Small Stuff is one of the most popular self-help books of all time. The secret of its success is that it works! This book will help you how to stop blowing things out of proportion, stop worrying about things that might happen (but probably won't), stop obsessing about things you can't change and things that just don't matter—and start living!
Its one hundred stress-reducing strategies have helped readers (including me) around the world live calmer, happier lives and enjoy deeper, more satisfying relationships with friends and loved ones.
In simple, bite-sized chapters, Don't Sweat The Small Stuff...and it's all small stuff presents suggestions such as:
Each technique is self-contained and explained in a short chapter of no more than three pages. So you can literally pick up the book at any time, open it to any page, read for a moment or two, and come away with an idea that can truly change your life.
Although the ideas may be simple, they're not simplistic. They're grounded in proven psychological principles, such as the effect of thoughts on feelings. The more conscious we are of what we're thinking, the more we can control irrational thoughts and the emotions they produce.
For example, when we start obsessing over being five minutes late for dinner with friends, we forget that the goal of the evening is to spend time with people we like. Instead we focus on an artificial goal, a self-created and unimportant deadline.
We act as if the evening is an emergency, not an opportunity to relax and enjoy ourselves. The result is stress instead of happiness.
Don't Sweat The Small Stuff shows us how to stop creating our own emergencies and start having the fun, peace, and love we deserve.
