Description

Prescription for stress is based upon decades of innovative research with individuals facing distressing situations ranging from the hassling experiences of daily living to life-threatening events. Learn how stress causes or worsens physical or mental illness, lowers defense against infectious disease and cancer, intensifies age-related memory loss, steals energy, and promotes depression. Also recognize dimensions of your personality that may predispose you to unnecessary stress.

It helps you to: (a) identify unique sources of stress in your life; (b) recognize stress in your body, thoughts, work, and relationships, (c) use the tools of healthy living to combat stress; (d) change your thinking and your behavior to reduce stress, and (e) feel better and think more effectively.

REVIEWS

Helping us understand the origins and essence of stress. It is a joy to read, filled with fascinating case studies. It is for our leadership programs for executives, physicians, and upper-level managers.
-Dr Roderick Gilkey

Prescription for Stress is a pleasant surprise, it’s more like reading a letter from a kindly, wide uncle upon hearing my tale of too much to do and not enough time to do it. This book is a must read.
-Dr Robert McGinnis
