Chapter Summary

This chapter provides basic introduction to the literally vital art of stress management. The specific mechanisms to overcome stress appropriate for the individual can only be learnt with the personal help of a psychologist or physician. Diplomats such as Manfred Scheich are subject to a quite special form of stress. At the cognitive level stress is characterized by frequent swings between different thoughts and issues. At the physical level, a variety of symptoms may serve to warn us of impending problems: tiredness, low spirits and headache are typical signs that stress and probably lack of sleep are taking their toll. The only possible way out is to avoid stress and manage it positively. The most important precaution is to get a minimum of sleep. Two very important measures are to restrict the intake of food and alcohol.
