The obvious purpose of this book has been to help you understand stress, learn to limit stressors when possible, and learn how to counteract stressors that are inevitable. You have learned (and hopefully practiced) time-honored methods for relaxation, including breathing exercises, meditation, and various techniques for reducing muscular tension. A strong case has also been made for the value of physical exercise and eating a nutritious diet as part of your stress mastery program. You have been exposed to a wide variety of cognitive strategies for changing the myriad thinking patterns that help create, inflate, and perpetuate stress on the job and in your personal life. We hope that you have found these strategies useful for mastering the stress in your life.
