Summary

Emotion is a universal language understood by all cultures. It is an integral part of our spoken and written language, our art, and our music. Various emotions enable us to respond quickly and appropriately to our environment. And stress, in turn, is created when environmental factors pose a potential threat to our safety. Our fast-paced world requires that we cope with stress in a manner that will harness its energy and minimize its potential to produce disease or distress. This book explains how negative emotions are often generated by stressful situations, and explores how both emotions and stress can have an impact on our health and well being.
