      Keeping the Faith

      Daily Reflections to Build Strength, Serenity, and Passion in Your Life and the Lives of Others

      by John W. Pozzi

      THE TRUE FAITH THAT MUST BE FOUND AND KEPT IS THE FAITH IN ONESELF. Each day you give a part of yourself whether it is at work, at home, or in your daily interaction with others. How do you give of yourself? Do you hold back or go at life half-heartedly? You need to give of yourself with heart, mind, and soul all the time. You never know what interaction with a person will make a difference in their life — or yours. If you don’t believe in yourself and don’t have the confidence to grow each day, then you are missing out on what life has to offer you. This simple book will inspire you to help others. Or, at the very least, you will make another person’s day — and, therefore, your day — better.

      Joyride

      One Life. Three Principles. Infinite Potential.

      by David Key

      An ancient wisdom meets the modern world Joyride reveals the illusory nature of pressure, worry and stress of all kinds. The revelation that these are not brought upon us by circumstances “outside of us” but created from the inside out is the start of a transformational journey of self- discovery that will allow you to “show up better,” be more productive, more resilient and stress free. There are Three Principles creating our experience. An understanding of the way they work offers you a spiritual “rudder,” helping you to leave behind self-generated limiting beliefs, achieve more peace of mind and ultimate freedom. The journey takes the form of an imaginary road trip from Miami down to Key West. At each stage of the journey there are anecdotes and stories acting as metaphors for the way in which we enslave ourselves with our own thinking, and pointing to a new way of being that is free from care, focused and happy.

      Stress and Anxiety

      Application to Health, Work Place, Community, and Education

      by Editor(s): Petra Buchwald

      The book offers cutting-edge developments in both experimental and theoretical aspects of stress and anxiety introduced by world-wide well-know researchers. It covers four major areas that are health, work place, community, and education. In the first part of the book issues of stress and health are discussed underscoring the importance of positive individual traits, positive resources for improving well-being, happiness and healthy functioning. Part 2 of the book shows what is currently known about occupational stress and deals with the role of personality, workaholism, and the importance of burnout. The third part of the volume focuses on stress, anxiety, and coping in the community related to terror attacks. Research presented here helps to understand the phenomenon of posttraumatic growth and related paradoxical effects of traumatic events. A comprehensive and instructive conceptual overview of terror, its psychological antecedents and consequences, as well as findings from research that investigated the coping process during a period of political violence is given. The fourth part of the book refers to education and develops understandings of the sources, experiences, and consequences of stress, anxiety, and coping in different groups and school settings.Anxiety, stress, and coping are important to understand if we want to have meaningful descriptions of individuals. All contributions in this book demonstrate the development of research in this field and how important a continuing investigation and refinement in this complex area is. We wish to encourage academic researchers, students, service providers, policy makers, community members, and anyone else involved in treating stress to join with us in understanding individuals in the context of stress, coping, and emotions and how this effects their well-being, functioning and resilience.
