Manage Stress Before It Turns Toxic

Address Your Stress

Contrary to popular belief, stress is not a sickness. In fact, it's essential to human survival. However, if we allow stress to become chronic, we expose ourselves to potentially grave consequences, including depression, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

In Well Stressed, Dr. Sonia Lupien explains the science behind stress. Drawing on two decades of clinical research into the effects of stress on the human brain and body, she explains the four factors that underlie any stressful situation and how to manage them.

Armed with a real understanding of what stress is, you'll be able to tame it or even use it in some situations to optimize your performance and physical health. Well Stressed will help you address your stress head-on and get your mind and body balanced again.

great info, slow to solve March 29 2013
By Camille Janie T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I enjoyed reading lots of what this book had to offer, but as a person who's having issues with stress & tension, I don't have the time or ability to make it through the scientific chapters of this book hearing about the harmful effects excessive stress can have on your body before getting to read about the solutions for it--shoved into the end of the book. Organizing it that way just makes me feel more stress! My suggestion: read chapter one then jump to the chapters on deconstructing and reconstructing NUTS, then you can read through the informative chapters in the middle without pulling your hair out worrying about how to reduce your stress while reading about the ways it's currently threatening you.
