9781554702244: Staying Afloat When the Water Gets Rough: How to Manage Your Life in a Rapidly Changing World

We live in a time of unprecedented change, with every day bringing unexpected and unwelcome changes in our global, local, and personal environments. These changes cause upheaval in our lives and result in stress, worry, and uncertainty for our future. In Staying Afloat When the Water Gets Rough, Dr. David Posen asks, "What can be done to increase our comfort with the daily changes in our outside environment?" With compassion, understanding, and humor, he explains the ingredients for "change-hardiness," illustrating his message with stories from his own experience as well as from that of his patients and friends. Part psychology, part philosophy, part action plan, the book inspires new ways to think about an old problem, encourages laughter, and points to a more secure comfort level with changes that may be beyond our control.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

We?re living in a time of unprecedented change. It affects every area of our lives, and the rate of change is accelerating. But even though change is a fact of life, most of us find it difficult and stressful?especially when it?s rapid, extensive and imposed on us. This book is about managing change and the effect it has on us. And my message is: You?re not alone. There are things you can do to make it easier. And you?re going to be OK.
