This whimsical book is a serious tool for executives. If you’ve ever complained that you’re stressed out, rushed for time or generally just feel like crap, we challenge you to read this book. There’s no rocket science here, but the simple wisdom that Lois Levy doles out might just spark an epiphany. This is common-sense stuff (sleep, play, laugh, quit worrying) that you’d think it would be impossible to forget, even though we all do. getabstract.com is not joking when it recommends this little book to all executives. You’ll feel a little better after you read it, and much better once you follow some of Levy’s advice.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why your body and its biology reacts all day long to little tensions, while prehistoric people reacted only to occasional major stresses;
- Why both quiet time and the right kind of noise can do wonders for your mood;
- Why you should get in touch with your inner child, play games and take naps; and
- Why you will relax instantly if you stop worrying about things you can’t control.
