"No matter how good you are at dealing with stress, I strongly recommend The Little Book of Stress Relief. It provides an excellent framework for stress management, and is filled with great tips and insights. And it's fun to read!"
--Peter G. Hanson, MD, author of the Joy of Stress

Intense stress is an integral part of modern life, and it seems to be getting worse. In controlled doses, stress helps individuals think faster and perform better - but left unchecked and unbalanced, it leads to fatigue, helplessness and a variety of unfortunate health complications. With people working harder, anxious about job loss and the ever-faster pace of life, and the ever-growing intrusion of technology, stress seems to be increasing constantly.

The Little Book of Stress Relief is a practical, breezy and entertaining book that changes the fundamental thinking and habitual lifestyle choices that contribute to heightened stress levels. There are helpful tips for making informed choices, adjusting how we think and taking the necessary steps to regain control.

Organized into 52 short chapters -- one for each week of the year -- the book uses stories and analogies to describe specific causes of stress, and follows with simple, concrete steps to manage them. Easy-to-grasp activities and exercises point the way towards the right amount of sleep, how to deal with procrastination and perfecting the art of setting priorities. The book's layout allows readers to follow the tips in any order. Each chapter ends with a brief "prescription" summarizing key suggestions.

Here is a sampling of the topics in The Little Book of Stress Relief:

Do You Know Your Signs of Stress?
The Work-Life Balancing Act
Setting Boundaries and Limits
Reclaiming Ownership of Your Time
It's Time to Plan Your Next Vacation
Dealing with Information Overload
The Tyranny of E-Mail
Living Your Life On -- and Off -- Social Media
Dealing with Clutter
Money and Stress
Dealing With Difficult People
Relaxation Techniques
The Importance of Social Support

The Little Book of Stress Relief is a helpful, inspiring and practical guide to alleviating the problems caused by stress.

[Review of earlier edition:] For the person who has done a lot of reading about stress, the book is a primer. For new readers on this subject, the book will have much information to offer. Even for those of us who have studied stress, its consequences, and how to more effectively handle it, the book is a helpful refresher.
— Jeannette Lancaster PhD, RN, FAAN, Family and Community Health, March 2006

[Review of earlier edition:] This well-written book is set up in 52 very brief chapters... The idea is that you seriously tackle one issue a week.
— Laura Hardy, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, May 2004
