Here are two interesting definitions of stress:

“Stress is a preoccupation with emotional upset”   Dr Derek Roger

“The amount of stress in your life is determined by how much energy you expend resisting your life”  Gary Zukav

Soon I will be printing Chapter 5 from my book Living in the Now by Jill Jacques on this blog site. This is my gift to you and is titled The Stress Connection. The chapter begins with a consideration of what stress means, and this is followed by practical exercises and responses to these exercises from people in How to Live in the Now groups  that I have been running for over 10 years. (The book is available on Amazon Kindle).




About Jill M Jacques

I grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa, and have spent most of my life here doing the usual things - marrying, having children and caring for an array of pets ranging from dogs to silkworms and chameleons. I first became interested in philosphy and its practical application in everyday life in my early 20s and spent many years as part of a group that pursued this goal. Drawing on this experience, I have been running "How to live in the Now" programmes for over 10 years. I wrote this book in response to requests from group members for something "simple and practical". I tend to see the funny side of life situations and enjoy writing humorous back pages as well as short stories and some poetry. Some of these have been published. Being here now is what really matters.
