<i>I'm missing out on my life. What's wrong with me?</i><br /><br />If that's ever crossed your mind, and if you know there's more to life than what you've been living, this book is for you.<br /><br />It sucks to acknowledge that you are what's keeping you from the life you want. You sacrifice what you want most for what you want in the moment. You know everything you're supposed to do, and yet you feel stuck--limited by your past, overwhelmed by your future--in a purgatory of your own behavior.<br /><br />After decades of feeling trapped by this mindset, Elizabeth Benton shifted her whole life by proving her own stories wrong. In this book, Elizabeth will help you live a new story, in which you can, you will, and you already have everything you need to make it happen.

A 34-year-old man fighting for his life in the Intensive Care Unit is on an artificial respirator for over a month. Could it be that his chance of getting off the respirator is not how much his nurses know, but rather how much they care?<br /><br />A 75-year-old woman is heroically saved by a major trauma center only to be discharged and fatally struck by a car while walking home from the hospital. Could a lack of compassion from the hospital staff have been a factor in her death?<br /><br />Compelling new research shows that health care is in the midst of a compassion crisis.<br />But the pivotal question is this: Does compassion really matter?<br /><br />In Compassionomics: The Revolutionary Scientific Evidence that Caring Makes a Difference, physician scientists Stephen Trzeciak and Anthony Mazzarelli uncover the eye-opening data that compassion could be a wonder drug for the 21st century.<br /><br />Now, for the first time ever, a rigorous review of the science - coupled with captivating stories from the front lines of medicine - demonstrates that human connection in health care matters in astonishing ways. Never before has all the evidence been synthesized together in one place.<br /><br />You will see compelling evidence that:<br />- Compassion has vast benefits for patients across a wide variety of conditions<br />- Missed opportunities for compassion can have devastating health effects<br />- Compassion can help reverse the cost crisis in health care<br />- Compassion can be an antidote for burnout among health care providers<br />- 40 seconds of compassion can save a life<br /><br />After seeing all the evidence, the answer is crystal clear: Compassion matters...in not only meaningful but measurable ways.
