The global economic crisis has increased stress and anxiety for millions of people everywhere, with no end in sight. This is affecting productivity, causing a lack of being present, a mental fog creating mistakes and stress-induced health and absenteeism costs to organizations.

To help ease some of the strain, HeartMath, a global leader in best practice solutions for stress relief, has released the “De-Stress Kit for the Changing Times”, a free resource for individuals and employers around the country.

Dow Chemical, Boeing, JetBlue, the American College of Healthcare Executives, and many hospitals and clinics, are just some of the organizations already making this free booklet widely available. HeartMath founder Doc Childre is deeply concerned about all the people under great stress from the financial meltdown, who have no tools to help, and don’t understand the bigger picture of what’s going on.

Doc has written the De-Stress Kit with fourteen strategies to limit your stress during this period of great challenge and uncertainty. To download the free kit visit http://www.heartmath.org and click on "De-Stress Kit"
