Psychotherapist and aikido practitioner Aimee Bernstein teaches how to make pressure your friend. Stress can feel like an oppressive burden, but you can transform it into a vital fuel that powers your life and expands your sense of self at work and at home. Bernstein provides a step-by-step guide with helpful individual and team-based exercises that turn pressure into a positive and eliminate stress. She embraces both ancient and current notions of the body and its energetic potential. Respected business authority Peter Drucker wrote, “Your first and foremost job as a leader is to take charge of your own energy and then help to orchestrate the energy of those around you.” Bernstein approaches stress on a more Eastern path, a tack familiar to anyone who practices yoga or Pilates or receives acupuncture treatments. She combines her rigor as a psychotherapist with her understanding of the principles of “ki” to create a meaningful, practical program of stress reduction. getAbstract recommends her methods to anyone who needs to better manage stress. Today, that includes almost everyone.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How to use your body’s “ki flow,”
  • How to achieve a “full mind/body/energy” state to relieve stress and transform pressure from a negative to a positive, and
  • How to use the “Enneagram” and the “Inner Map to Stresslessness” to benefit you at work and at home.
