New Book on Managing Pandemic Stress and Other Significant Life Transitions

In ‘Dealing With Life’s Changes,’ Eva Bennett provides tips on how to maintain positivity and achieve health and happiness during difficult seasons

Throughout her career, Eva Bennett has used her diverse skillset and wealth of experience to motivate others to overcome obstacles and reach their potential. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, she re-released “Dealing With Life’s Changes,” an insightful, easy-to-read self-improvement book designed to help readers cope with the stress that accompanies both unexpected events and conventional milestones as well as improve their quality of life.

“Dealing With Life’s Changes” is rooted in Bennett’s signature motto of “catch your thoughts, change your thoughts, change your life” and incorporates cutting-edge research and personal vignettes to demonstrate the serious toll negative thinking takes on physical, emotional and mental health. Through practical advice and experiential exercises, the book empowers readers to take gradual steps toward altering thought processes, improving communication skills and developing the confidence needed to handle life’s toughest challenges.

In writing “Dealing With Life’s Changes,” Bennett hopes to reach those who are struggling to adjust to a significant change, including job loss, relationship breakdown, financial crisis, serious illness, retirement or a COVID-19-related issue. Ultimately, she hopes to equip readers with the tools to begin making necessary adjustments so that they may live happier, healthier lives.

“Since early this year, when COVID took hold, there has been a sharp rise in mental health issues and suicide,” wrote Bennett. “I see from my book and the stories from people that are in my book that each small step you take to live a more positive life helps you to come to terms with the unexpected changes that come into our lives.”

“Scattered with inspiring quotes and personal stories, ‘Dealing With Life’s Changes’ makes you want to jump up, grab life by the horns and take action to change what needs changing – now!” said Meagan Jones, editor of Rotarian Life & Leisure magazine. “The information contained within the book’s wise and witty pages is as relevant to an 18-year-old as it is to an 80-year-old. This is no ‘airy-fairy’ motivational book – it’s just good advice that makes sense.”

“After the events that have changed my life during the last few years, reading this book has reassured me that our positivity and thoughts can really help us in how we approach and deal with the many different situations in our daily lives,” said C. French, teacher. “A truly interesting and thought-provoking book, that is easy to read and can be enjoyed by all.”
