By his own admission, David Schaeffer is now one of the most contented people he knows. So why is he writing books on the very serious topics of grief and stress? A short decade earlier, he was spiraling downwards under a weight of stress that had accumulated over many years.
David writes this book from his discovery and recovery experiences. He uncovers three kinds of stress. The stress we choose, the stress that chooses us and everyday, unnecessary stress. He uses the tragedy of the 1998 Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race as a backdrop for many important things we all need to learn.
In Stress Less Live More, David summarizes almost 100 years of research into this universal human condition and delivers it in a relaxing, sometimes humorous style.
David Schaeffer is the director of High Endeavours; a lead coach with 'Design a Decade' and author of the popular book Grieve Upwards. He has carried various leadership roles at local, state and national levels and specialises in the key areas of relationships, leadership development, grief recovery and stress minimisation. David is married to Tuula and between them they have four children, seven grandchildren and an extended family as dear to them as their blood relatives.
