Cracking The Stress Secret with Amir Rashidian
In our newest episode of the PenPodcast we are joined by Amir Rashidian.
Amir is the founder of the Mid-Atlantic Chiropractic Center. Established in 2006 and serving over 18,000 patient visits annually, the Mid-Atlantic Chiropractic Center focuses on high-tech diagnostics to detect and correct disturbances in the nervous system. The doctors at the Mid-Atlantic Chiropractic Center, promoting drugless health solutions, work with patients to eliminate the causes of disease and not merely the suppression of symptoms.
He has won multiple honors and awards including Business Leader of the Year and Philanthropist of the Year. He is happily married since 2005 and together they have three sons.
When we seek advice on health and wellness, we are commonly told to reduce or eliminate stress in our lives. Cracking the Stress Secret takes a different stance.
In this book, Amir explains that striving to accomplish goals and improve ourselves inherently comes along with obstacles and stress, so it's unrealistic--even undesirable--to cut stress from our lives. How much we achieve depends on how much stress we can safely handle. In fact, stress can become a natural source of fuel for success.
