Gael Lindenfield’s Positive Under Pressure: How to be Calm and Effective When the Heat is on
Some people thrive on stress. We’ve all heard it said. And apparently there’s some truth in the saying. Evolutionary theories suggest that stress was beneficial to our prehistoric predecessors by equipping them with responses that maximized their survival. Stress sharpened the senses and created the adrenal energy needed to fight or take flight. Apparently these responses are controlled by our autonomic nervous systems. But while this built-in system helps us to survive, it can be set off inadvertently and inappropriately. Positive Under Pressure will help you control your “pressure thermometer” and attune your angst. As well as explaining how to recognise the signs of stress (such as poor concentration, becoming reclusive and developing nervous habits) authors Gail Lindenfield and Dr Malcolm Vandenburg will show you how to harness and utilise your stress positively.
