Steve welcomes author Andrew Bernstein for a powerful conversation about the reality of stress and practical ideas to free yourself from its burdens. Andrew is the author of "The Myth of Stress". About the book: Where does stress come from?Financial pressures? Looming deadlines? Conflicts at work or at home? For more than half a century, we've been told that stress comes from circumstances like these, that it's a by-product of our ancestors' fight-or-flight response to danger, and that the best we can do, given the fast pace of life today, is to breathe, try to relax, and accept that life is hard. All of this, according to Andrew Bernstein, is wrong. Spurred by the death of several family members when he was young, Bernstein began a quest to understand the real dynamics of stress and resilience. He eventually realized that stress doesn't come from your circumstancesit comes fromyour thoughts aboutyour circumstances. Bernstein has been teaching ActivInsight to great acclaim in schools, not-for-profits, and Fortune 500 companies since 2004. Now he shares this technique for the first time with a wider audience.
