The coronavirus could be in front of you, behind you, to the right or left, too. This uncertainty is causing all of us a lot of stress! So, is there anything we can do about this stress? Dr. Jerry V. Teplitz is an expert and pioneer in the field of stress management. He's been teaching and writing about how to handle stress since 1974. He's been publishing a month blog called Alternatives for Natural Health for 18 years and is now doing a weekly email.

He wrote one of the first books in field How to Relax and Enjoy..., and this was before stress management was even considered a field! His latest iteration of this book is Managing Your Stress in Difficult Times: Succeeding in Times of Change. Dr. Teplitz has been inducted as a Legend of the Speaking Profession by the Veteran Speakers Network.
