Stress—and its many debilitating consequences on health and well-being—has been for many years one of the most pressing problems in modern culture. But because people generally accept that stress is inevitable, even desirable in some cases, they focus on merely managing stress. Unfortunately, most stress-management methods merely exchange one type of stress for another, and although they can buy time and perhaps avoid some immediate issues, they do not provide a long-term solution to the harmful effects of stress.

Solving Stress takes a different approach. Although you will inevitably encounter potential stressors throughout life, and will inevitably react to those stressors, it's not inevitable that you must react with stress and tension. Instead, Solving Stress teaches you simple and effective tools to retrain the nature of your reaction to one of calmness and relaxation, giving you direct, individual control over your stress. These same tools also induce the physiological counter-effects of stress, activating your body's self-healing processes.

With Solving Stress, you'll be able to reduce present stress, reverse harmful effects of past stress, and prevent most future stress. You'll step out of the cycle of stress, recover your personal well-being, and truly transform your relationship with the demands of an active life.

What Others Are Saying About Solving Stress
“This little gem of a book offers much more than tools for momentary stress relief; it offers long-lasting solutions that address the underlying causes of stress, not merely the symptoms. Kraig Brockschmidt offers you a proven, practical, clear-minded approach to taking charge of your life, and your reactions to it. You can put these powerful techniques and simple strategies to work right away!”
—Gyandev McCord, PhD, E-RYT 500, Director of Ananda Yoga, Co-Founder of Yoga Alliance, author of Spiritual Yoga: Awakening to Higher Awareness
“ Solving Stress offers a clear and concise means to bring greater serenity, clarity, and joy into your life. With patience and persistence, they’ll work for you too!”
—Dr. David Kessler, Doctor of Osteopathy
“In my business life, I love a guarantee. Guaranteed sale, guaranteed return. However, truth be told, stress is also guaranteed in the world of business! Stress is a very real problem, and Kraig has created for us a concise and precise roadmap to living a calmer, more constructive life. The promise? Follow these simple directions and you will find that this little book delivers you to a life—in work and home—filled with more joy, peace, and smiles.”
—Shane McCamey, Director of Sales, West, Boiron USA
“With clarity and precision, this book delivers true, elegant solutions to the epidemic of stress. Brockschmidt asks the right questions, delivers the science, and outlines a very simple, powerful practice that will transform your life. From my own practice of twenty years, I testify to the validity, power, and effectiveness of these techniques. As a professional cellist and director, I have found that these simple techniques not only turn the tables on the stress of performing, but also connect me to a joy never thought imaginable.”
—David Eby, professional cellist, director, instructor at Lewis & Clark College, Portland, Oregon
“ Solving Stress is one of those books that will change your outlook on everything. Stress is not something to be reduced, avoided, or managed. Rather, it is something you can solve. My own journey started ten years ago, when I ran a software consulting company whose largest customer was General Motors. No matter what I tried, I could not escape the stress surrounding their financial state. Every news report, every congressional quote, even the president was involved. I would start every day telling myself to focus on what I could do, not on the external causes. That peace usually lasted no more than an hour. Without the tools, the discipline, and the focus Kraig describes, I could not solve stress. I’d stumbled on some of these ideas, and they helped. Following Kraig’s cohesive plan would have been much better. Now you can learn these same techniques to solve the stress in your life.”
—Bill Wagner, Senior Content Developer, Microsoft
“ Solving Stress is a wonderful and necessary analysis on the dynamics of confronting and overcoming stress and anxiety. The writing is clear and concise, and is filled with relevant examples and very helpful exercises and strategies. I have already begun applying its insights in my own life.”
—John Knight Lundwall, PhD, editor of Cosmos & Logos: Journal of Myth, Religion, and Folklore; author of Mythos and Cosmos: Mind and Meaning in the Oral Age
“ Solving Stress is a game-changing powerhouse of a book that delivers the promise of its title—the real and lasting solution to stress. Kraig Brockschmidt presents a thorough overview of stress; causes, impacts, and traditional solutions—including some of the humorous contradictions found in much of the literature on this subject. Packed with powerful research and crystal-clear analysis, Solving Stress presents a brilliant distillation of virtually all stress reduction approaches, and then goes beyond them. It penetrates to the heart of what actually causes stress, and then leads us to the simple yet profound approach that quite literally solves the problem of stress. And then it goes beyond again, leading its readers to a life of far greater quality and satisfaction—to happiness itself.”
—Dana Anderson MA, artist, teacher, Founder of Awakening Arts and The Academy of Art, Creativity, and Consciousness
“Clearly written, very motivating, and full of practical methods that aren’t too hard to incorporate into a busy life. I feel that I have the tools now to not only reduce stress, but also start on a path toward a more balanced and harmonious life, generally.”
—Gordon Hogenson, Microsoft group manager, author of C++/CLI: The Visual C++ Language for .NET 3.5
“This book is an indispensable friend to anyone buffeted by stress and worry, which unfortunately includes nearly everyone in the human race. Kraig’s writing style is easy and conversational, but also compelling. He offers time-tested techniques and changes in attitude that are transformative. It’s as refreshing to read this comprehensive guide as it is to practice the techniques. Highly recommended.”
—Karen Gamow, Clarity Seminars, Mountain View, CA
“This wonderful book contains simple, yet powerful steps to change your experience of daily life. The moments of your life will become permeated with calmness and joy. Even integrating a few of these practical steps will bring transformative results.”
—Jamey and Darlene Potter, owners, New Renaissance Bookshop, Portland, Oregon
“As a young reader dealing with the stress of being a university student and working full-time, this book deeply inspired me and influenced how I deal with stressors. Initially, I was skeptical. Can a book really help me deal with everything I have to do? It actually did. Brockschmidt writes in a clear and concise way, and speaks from personal experience. While various popular books on stress management give confusing and contradictory advice, Kraig focuses on the few simple things that are most effective.”
—Julian Atanasoae, student, University of Bucharest, Romania
“Who couldn’t use a little more peace in their life? Kraig Brockschmidt has put together a simple, easy-to-use formula for that purpose. Whether you are struggling up the ladder of success or tumbling down the so-called summit, this author offers a life raft out of the chaos!”
—Kent M. Baughman RN, CHPN, certified End of Life Care giver
“ Solving Stress penetrates to the heart of the problem of stress in our society and shows us a way out. I highly recommend it to anyone who has tried other methods of stress relief and failed. This method really works!”
—Bruce Davis, businessman, owner, Junction True Value Hardware, Seattle, Washington
“I love Solving Stress because it’s simple. As Kraig points out, there are hundreds of things you could do to address stress, but how do you know what you should do? This book provides just enough context to understand stress, then gets right down to what you can do about it. The combination of basic exercises, breathing, and meditation is perfect—do them all at once in about twenty minutes, or break up your workday and practice a few minutes at a time. I started with this book a few weeks ago, and it’s really made a difference on how I approach my day, and how I tackle stress.”
—Michael Blythe, Senior Technical Writer, Microsoft
“ Solving Stress is the key to understanding and using non-pharmacological solutions for remaining calm in the midst of chaos. What pushes our stress buttons so that the immediate response is often anger that intensifies the situation? Brockschmidt’s book is a gem that provides tools that allow us to master our immediate responses from fight or flight to calmly finding an articulate solution. Solving Stress teaches us how to master our reactions to stressful situations wherever they occur.”
—Sara S DeHart, MSN, PhD
