Barbara  Berckhan - Cultivating a Thick Skin


The clever, calm way to deal with stressful situations

Wherever we go, we experience embarrassments, impertinences, and impositions. They get under our skin, go straight to our heart, burrow into our memory. Unfortunately, we are not always able to switch off the things that annoy us. The only solution is a thick skin. With such an airbag for the soul, we are able to keep calm even when unpleasant facts can't be changed. But how is it possible to achieve this relaxed defence against stress?

Communications expert Barbara Berckhan presents surprisingly simple protective shields with which we can arm ourselves daily. From submerging to letting go, from filtering out to waving through, she describes every strategy that makes us strong.

A thick skin makes it possible to still be able to laugh – despite all adversities.
