Summary

It's pernicious...it's diabolical...it creeps into every moment of our lives. It influences our relationships, impacts our physical body, works its way into our conversations, sparks non-nourishing behaviors, and forces us to do things we'd never want to do. It's infectious; it's relentless.... It's stress! We all know it. We all experience it. It's the human condition - but through this audiobook, you will learn to transcend it.

Drawing on decades of experience working with individuals in extreme, high-pressure situations - including business leaders, world-class athletes, members of the military, Special Forces, and those in crisis - davidji will show you how to handle any type of stress that life throws at you. Just as he demystified the practice of meditation in his award-winning book Secrets of Meditation, in this impactful audiobook, he will teach you proactive tools to breathe more easily, master your emotions, communicate more effectively, cultivate more nourishing relationships, and perform at a higher level.

With his trademark easy-to-understand and entertaining teaching style, davidji will transform your understanding of stress using time-tested techniques; cutting-edge science; real-world, practical applications; and in-the-moment stress busters. How you respond to the world around you determines the fabric of your life - and one listen of destressifying will enhance your performance at work, at home, and in the face of daily surprises. This audiobook will allow you to determine the speed at which life comes at you and guide you to deeper fulfillment, greater empowerment, and true peace of mind.

Thorough but long winded

Could have been summed up much quicker. Also, the inclusion of numerous long listings of examples needn't have been so incredibly dense.

Brilliant and necessary 😀

Straightforward , Real world !!! cuts through all the BS and often " fluffiness" of so many spiritual books that can turn people off . I think it will help so many people and I hope to teach Davidji"s teachings as they are so necessary in order for people to start believing in themselves again . Great book x

Fantastic content and narration

The first part of the audiobook defines stress and presents scientific research of its source and its impact. Practical advice follows on how to "destressify" and in the process to realize your best self.

The content was presented clearly, without a lot of mysticism, and davidji's narration was terrific.

I highly recommend this audiobook.

16 seconds to presence

I read a book called The 5 second rule by Mel Roberts. Then I read this book by DavidJi and I call them the 21 second rule. I was using the 5 second rule to change my state. now I do 16 seconds of a feeling my breathing to change my state. If you stop and truthfully shield the breath enter and exit your lungs for 16 seconds you can change your state.

At first I was having trouble with this. we learned so many techniques that we have to continue to remember them all in order to use them. In other words you'll learn so many techniques it's which one do you use at one point in time and in what situation. By just following your breath you don't need to remember all the techniques. I combined the 5 second and 16 second rules. I work a support room and I have found that sometimes she's finding the breath is difficult and therefore I can buy these two techniques. I encourage people to read this book and I took the author's class through Hay House and found dead it's beneficial as well. I also beginning a three-time a day meditation practice which I haven't been doing until I took the author's class to Hay House.

Wonderful guide for life

I've been listening to davidji's meditations for years and this book brought together the theory of meditation, background on ancient teachings and new science on the mind/body benefits of mediation in one place. This was the book that got me finally to make the commitment to cultivate a twice-daily practice. This book has changed my life!
