Coping better with negative emotions

£19.95

Description

A rapidly changing world can cause stress, but it is how we deal with that stress that matters. We can look at
change from another angle – rather than a threat to our way of life, we could see it as an opportunity for new experience and new knowledge.

Some people cope with stress by understanding and minimizing the things that stress their body. Others use medication to mask problems caused by stress, such as pain. Some people simply do not cope, and develop negative emotions.

This book is designed to help you understand the things that cause stress, the problems that can arise, and the broad range of ways people might manage their stress.
