Why do some people get stressed while others stay resilient? The research identifies that the process of rumination—thinking over and over about events from the past or the future and attaching negative emotions to them—is what causes stress and not the events themselves. In this book, readers will learn how to regain control of their attention, get things back into perspective by practicing detachment, and let go of the negative thinking that compromises their health and productivity. With practice, you will learn how to stay calm, focused, and in control—in other words, how to become more resilient.
