Welcome to My Blog

As I begin this blog the question in my mind is “Why does this matter?” We are constantly inundated with information, so why do you need more? My goal is to provide something of value, to make it worth your while to spend a few minutes here reading it.

Stress is the leading cause of illness in North America. Stress can have a significant negative impact on our lives professionally and personally if we don’t have strategies to cope. Much of the stress management literature is about lowering our demands. That is NOT what I teach. I believe that the high demands that we place on ourselves are the aspects of our life that make us successful. We need these stresses and challenges if we want to live fully!

I will be providing tips to increase your ability to deal with extreme demands without suffering the negative consequences of stress. So, I believe this matters because your level of success in life will be determined to a large extent by the level of resiliency that you reach.

I will base my blog posts on the latest research, but also on anecdotal evidence and my own observations. If you have any comments or ideas, please send them. I’m looking forward to spending time with you here.
