Learn powerful, science-based techniques to boost focus, drive and energy hour-by-hour throughout the day – every day, all day long

For most of us, the hundreds of miniature bruises we experience each day determine the overall quality of our lives far more dramatically than the giant traumas that punctuate the decades. Micro-Resilience curates the latest research on neuroscience, psychology, and physiology into a fresh, unique take on living a resilient life. Rather than the traditional focus on recovering from major ordeals, this book zeros in on small, immediately effective adjustments that allow you to be more resilient hour-by-hour every day, all day long.

In over five years of research and testing, thousands of people, from small town entrepreneurs to Fortune 100 CEOs to stay-at-home moms, have found these restorative techniques quick and easy to integrate into even the busiest of schedules. Bonnie and Allen use dozens of these entertaining stories to illustrate the effectiveness of this material – a doctor who stops falling behind in his caseload, a breast cancer patient energizes herself to get through chemo, a globetrotting corporate executive starts dating again after four years – all due to Micro-Resilience.

If you are looking for clear, painless steps you can take today that dramatically increase your ability to bounce back faster from life’s daily challenges, Micro-Resilience is for you.
