Don't we all have to work under a lot more pressure nowadays than at any time in history?

Expectations are higher than ever before and the need to do ”more” with ”less” is a given. Our family lives are also frantic. Add all of this together and it can cause us to be stressed and more anxious.

In this book, you’ll be given information, techniques and strategies to manage your stress levels. We may not be able to control the events that happen to us but we can certainly manage the meaning and the impact that they have upon us.

I have done most of the stress reduction techniques and found them very effective. Stress is inevitable but it is proven, it's manageable. :)

I like how concise it was, I am currently taking a course on Lifetime Nutrition and we discussed how stress can affect your health and metabolism. This book was a great read.
