WILMINGTON, NC, November 01, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Stress management is a concern for all of us today, especially during the Holidays. Holiday stress is but one form of stress however. There are many forms and not all of them are to be avoided. Regardless of the type of stress experienced, the effects of negative stress can be mild for some, devastating for others. Stress impacts everyone regardless of age, status, gender, or race.
Naturally, there are negative stress treatment approaches of every kind - Medical treatments include medications and specific stress treatment programs. In contrast, therapeutic approaches include individual therapy, group therapy, and hypnosis, and many others. Self-help strategies include changing diet, exercise, supplementation, and a host of other protocols.
However, all the stress management programs available today have been developed to reduce the levels of stress you experience. You first become aware of stress and you then seek treatment. But what if you are not aware of it in the first place?
Invisible stress. Surprisingly, there is a level of stress that can remain hidden. It is this form of stress that award-winning author Sylvia Lafair, Ph.D. brings to light in 'Invisible Stress (It's NOT what YOU Think!): Identify and Change the Patterns and Behaviors Controlling Your Life'. She believes we should learn how to "Practice Safe Stress."
"When stress hits the hot button, you have a choice," Lafair stated. "Many shout out upset while others would rather stuff it down. This fourth level beyond eustress, acute stress, or chronic stress causes difficulties in health and relationships at work and home. Stress can make you sick, so why not get it before it gets you? I wrote this book as a survival guide to tackle stress and feel confident throughout your day."
The Kindle version of 'Invisible Stress' will be available at no charge at Amazon November 3 through November 5, 2021 at https://www.amazon.com/Invisible-Stress-Its-What-Think-ebook/dp/B09HX ... 014&sr=1-1.
Readers and reviewers alike have praised 'Invisible Stress.' Andy Heppelle, Chief magic maker, accelerating sustainability, Capgemini said 'New possibilities unleash when you are aware of the real cause of stress underneath the obvious." Brenda Thompson, executive director, Gadsden, Schneider, and Woodward, LLP comments, 'It is an essential part of the role of human resources to guide people to gain the clarity this book gives about how to handle stress.' Mark Baylis, Founder of Valor Clinic, US Army Special Forces (Retired), said it ". . . should be required reading for the military." Joanne LaMarca Mathisen, former network producer NBC Today, New York, said, "Invisible stress followed me around for decades. Once I understood it was always with me, and I carried it around like two dumbbells on my shoulders, I learned to make the right changes. I'm calmer now, and even better, more energetic."
