The Upside of Stress: Why Stress Is Good for You, and How to Get Good at It by Kelly McGonigal
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Well, this book made me feel better about my own stress, so I've only good things to say about it. The Upside of Stress summarizes the studies done on how we interpret our stress and then how this interpretation gives the stress a positive or negative expression in our lives. Whether you have been through a traumatic event, are emerging from a loss of employment, or have an iPhone malfunction .... what should you think about your misery and how might these thoughts mitigate your sadness or your disquietude? There are so many nuggets of wisdom in these pages. Moreover, the research is current, so if you read a lot of books like this (I do), I promise you that you will definitely learn something new.
