Tools for stress relief when shit happens.

My next guest knows what stress is. His experiences include a dysfunctional childhood, rocky relationships, divorce, suicidal family members, director level sales and marketing roles, and teaching at UC Berkley.

His professional success ,and the stress that came with it, finally landed him in the hospital with a severe case of diabetic ketoacidosis. He was just a few hours away from being comatose. He was knocking on death’s door.

Pete Alexander is the author of LIGHTEN Your Day: fast, easy, and effective stress relief for when shit happens.

We talk about some of the 100+ stress relief tools and techniques he describes in the book. You can find something that will help you for almost any stressful situation. Since no single stress relief tool works for everyone, having a large variety of options to experiment with will give you the best chance of finding the right one for you and your situation.

(Note: I bought a Dammit Doll, one of Pete’s suggested tools, for our baseball team. We painted an umpires mask on it. The guys love it.)
