New Book on Creativity, Inspired!, Suggests Incorporating More Stress Buffers into Your Daily Life in 2013
With better stress management, you can enjoy greater creativity, says Marcia Yudkin, author of new book, Inspired!
“With all the popular talk about being stressed out, it’s easy to imagine this as a uniquely contemporary dilemma,” says Yudkin, a noted marketing mentor and the author of 16 previous books. “However, way back in 360 BC, Plato described lawyers as being ‘driven by the water clock, never at leisure.’ Likewise, archeologists tell us that about 400 years later, the Roman city of Pompei had no less than 200 snack bars serving figs, cakes, cheese, dates and hot drinks to accommodate working citizens who were too much in a rush to sit down for a meal.”
Common stress reducers include having control over conditions in your work and home life; friendships and intimate relationships; plenty of sleep; a habit of smiling; effective relaxation; and plain old fun.
“Develop a philosophical approach to things in life you can’t change,” Yudkin recommends. “Don’t be the person who encounters relatively minor setbacks and remains consumed by bitterness, regret or a desire for revenge. Instead, develop your own ways of coping with stress.”
Inspired! How to Be More Original, Insightful and Productive in Your Work also includes research, anecdotes, tips and suggestions on time management, idea generation, problem solving, motivation, intuition and many similar topics, all from the point of view of improving daily creativity and satisfaction. The book is available in paperback for $19.95 at Amazon.com or BN.com and for $9.99 in Amazon’s Kindle store or Barnes & Noble’s Nook store.
