In thoughtful and insightful language, author Richard Carlson reveals ways to calm down in the midst of your hurried, stress-filled life. Learn how to put things in perspective by making the small daily changes he suggests, including advice such as "Think of your problems as potential teachers"; and "remember that when you die, your 'in' box won't be empty".

You can write down your most stubborn positions and see if you can soften them, learn to trust your intuitions, and live each day as if it might be your last."
