Stress-Proof Your Life
The secret to reducing your stress is not a better work-life balance, nor is it in meditation or mindfulness.
Chronic high stress—the kind contributing to heart disease—is not caused by an inability to decompress, but rather external factors that are out of our control—namely, overwhelm and uncertainty. So, while most people are focusing on either eliminating or coping with their stressors, they should be working to become immune to unavoidable stress.
Stress-Proof Your Life leverages insights from Eliz Greene’s 17 years of research, including a 4,000-person study, to provide the reader with stress management techniques that actually work. Through data-driven health insight and actionable exercises, this book teaches readers how to:
- Quantify and assess their current stress level
- Overcome overwhelm by practicing stress ecology
- Combat uncertainty and the paralyzing loop of anxiety that accompanies it
- Offset the physical impact of stress
- Recover from the emotional toll of stress
- Cultivate resiliency in the face of crisis and change
Eliz also shares insights from her research on generational and gender differences, leading high-performance teams, and cultivating a purpose-driven organizational culture that is immune to external and internal pressures.
Once you implement the strategies detailed in this book, you’ll elevate your quality of life, enhance your productivity, boost your capacity for critical and creative thought, and attain heightened levels of personal and professional success.
After experiencing a near-fatal heart attack at the age of 35 while 7 months pregnant with twins, Eliz Greene committed herself to uncovering and combating the preventable risk factors for heart disease, which led her to focus on job stress as a deadly and underexamined cause of heart attacks. For nearly two decades, Eliz has been on a mission to inspire busy people to pay attention to their heart health by identifying and taming their stress environment so that they can increase their vitality and create a purpose-driven and enjoyable life.
Don’t let job stress hold you back from the fulfillment and wellness you deserve or cause you to miss those special moments that make everything matter. Stress-proof your life and discover the secret to weathering adversity and uncertainty and improving your overall well-being!
Stress-Proof Your Heart
Is stress hurting your heart? Do you want to live longer, feel better, and protect your health? A stress-proof heart is immune to the physical impact of unrelenting stress.
Author Eliz Greene knows that protecting your heart from stress isn’t a “nice-to-have.” The strategies in this book are essential, life-or-death skills. When she was 35 years old and 7 months pregnant with twins, Eliz survived a massive heart attack, causing her heart to stop for 10 minutes. To reduce her heightened risk of having another heart attack, she’s spent the last 17 years honing practical and implementable strategies to manage stress for herself and the thousands of audience members and readers she reaches each year.
Stress-Proof Your Heart contains these strategies and the fruits of her international research study on job stress. Engaging assessments and actionable principles and tools will enable you to evaluate the physical impact of your stress and then offset that impact to protect your heart.
