Elements of stress are all around us, affecting our mind, body, soul and spirit. It is inevitable that stress will impact our lives at one time or another. Some people are able to work through it and others dip into a deep depression. Less Stress: 88 Lessons and Inspirations From Historical Leaders by Gabriella Kindert provides us with tools and resources from great world leaders in history, business, sports and politics in how they dealt with stress in their lives. Marcus Aurelius and Alexander the Great had similar approaches to stress by incorporating self-love, living in the moment, and building self-confidence. What we say to ourselves prior to a stressful situation helps us to combat stressful times. President Obama and Angela Merkel had similar stress releasers in not living in fear and in your emotions but dealing with life from the point of facts and business.
Less Stress: 88 Lessons and Inspirations From Historical Leaders by Gabriella Kindert is a good read. The leaders and industries chosen display an example of diversity in working in stressful situations. Several of these leaders chosen are those that I highly respect and had some knowledge about them as leaders; to learn more information as to how they dealt with and/or minimized stressful issues made them more human to me. I loved how Gabriella also gave us examples of how Serena Williams, Bill Gates, Milton Hershey and Coco Chanel dealt with everyday life challenges as well. If you are looking for some human element in how to deal effectively with stress, getting a copy of Less Stress: 88 Lessons and Inspirations From Historical Leaders by Gabriella Kindert is a great choice.
