"Manage your Mind: For Emotional Intelligence, Feelings, Moods and Stress Management" 

 ISBN : 978-1-4828-3333-1

Summary of the Book: 

In today’s fast and demanding life, our happiness and quality of life depend upon how effectively we manage emotions, feelings, moods and stress. We often encounter situations where we need to manage the state of mind promptly. Other times, the deeper understanding of mind, self and life is needed. Emotions, Feelings, Moods and Stress arise in mind. By understanding how mind functions, we can manage all of the above.

The book develops “Quick Action Tools” and “Deep Action Tools” to manage mind effectively. A novel strategy based on “Intensity and Time Duration” of emotions is formulated. This strategy is applied to manage major emotions, feelings, moods and stress.
