    Bank accounts work on a simple premise: you have to put money in before you can take money out. Our bodies are exactly the same. How can you keep drawing on stress energy when there’s nothing in the bank?

    This could be the most revealing time you’ll spend in years. David Posen M.D. explains how acute stress generates quick energy, yet chronic stress drains it. Using the players in the NHL as his examples, he demonstrates the link between increasing energy and reducing stress; and he does it all with rock-solid logic and a good dose of humour.
