Most fun things we do are actually a form of stress - riding a roller coaster, skiing, sudoku - a challenge.
You can reprogram your brain to turn your stress into a positive experience.
Consider this: Most of the stress you feel is self-generated.
If your brain can generate it, your brain can resolve it.
Who's in charge? You or your brain?
A handy volume of uncommon good sense.
