Life strategists Kathy Hertz and Donna Lipman reveal how to understand and handle the overwhelming stress of the Trump era while maintaining the energy and desire to stay engaged

AUSTIN, TX, May 23, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Written for everyone from political observers to advocates and activists, a new book from life strategists Kathy Hertz and Donna Lipman is inspiring people to renew their self-care and find fresh purpose in their political engagement. “Beyond Resistance: Coping with the Stress of the Trump Era – An Essential Guide” publishes this month.

Regarding their inspiration for writing the book, Donna and Kathy share: “We and most of our friends, family members, clients, and colleagues were living with an underlying anxiety, and we noticed that it was beginning to affect us negatively. We had shorter fuses and less joy. We had trouble sleeping. Many of us had a constant knot in our stomachs. We needed to figure out how to lift ourselves up out of victimhood and powerlessness into empowered action and strength.”

Anyone whose go-to tools just aren’t working right now to relieve stress and cope with difficult life circumstances will benefit from this book. Learn to:

• Cope with stress and overwhelm.
• Understand why you have such intense feelings and reactions.
• Navigate some of the major roadblocks that hold you back in your resistance and life.
• Identify what is most important to you and create a plan of action to achieve your goals while taking care of yourself in the process.
• Understand why Trump supporters are as ardent and committed as they are.
• Clearly listen for, hear, and trust your inner voice so you no longer need constant validation from others.
• Practice effective self-care, knowing it is neither self-indulgent nor selfish.

Say Kathy and Donna: “We are determined to use the chaos of the current political climate as a catalyst for growth rather than be swallowed up by it, and we want to help others do the same.”
