  4. Kipchoge Keino:

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    La vie moderne est pleine de défis, tels que les exigences quotidiennes, les délais, les tracas et frustrations. Chaque fois que la menace de contestation emporte sur la perception qu'on a de son / sa capacité à gérer cette menace, il peut être un début de stress. Je trouve intéressant que William Shakespeare avait offert une stratégie parfaite pour gérer le stress - dans sa célèbre pièce "Hamlet". Dans ce jeu, Hamlet fait une déclaration puissante: "il n'y a rien soit bon ou mauvais, mais la pensée qui le rend si." Dans cette phrase, Shakespear nous enseigne que si nous changeons nos pensées sur une situation potentiellement dangereuse, nous devrions être en mesure de faire face non seulement avec le stress, mais aussi de réduire notre stress de façon significative. Maintenant c'est un fait bien établi en psychologie que la pensée positive, et transformer la menace en une opportunité potntial, nous permet de nous protéger contre les effets secondaires néfastes du stress ..... et William Shakespeare savait ce fait plus de 400 il ya des années. C'est incroyable!
