A book that shows you how to prevent the little things in life driving you crazy.

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 should also try to live in the present moment, let others have the glory at times, and lower your tolerance to stress. 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.
