Stress Management PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Stress Management free pdf Stress constantly creeps into our lives. It can come from the frustration of a traffic jam or a confrontation with a partner. Stress can be spurred by money worries or spiked by a sudden health scare. It can exact a toll upon you -- physically, emotionally, and psychologically.

Stress is a fact of life. But you determine how it affects your life. You can counteract the damaging effects of stress by calling upon your body's rich potential for self-healing.

Stress Management, a Special Health Report from Harvard Medical School, is packed with strategies you can use to rein in the runaway changes unleashed by stress. These proven techniques can help you repel the consuming effects of stress and reclaim and restore inner peace.

The report will show you how to elicit -- at will -- the relaxation response. This is the simple, calming opposite of the stress response. And it will introduce you to various methods of producing this response--from focused breathing to tai chi and repetitive prayer.

Stress Management will help you explore cognitive restructuring, a strategy to change the way you look at things. You'll find how to challenge negative thoughts and avoid jumping to conclusions. And, if you've heard about the power of visualization and meditation, but don't know where to start, the report will show you.

The report will help you identify the warning signs of stress. It will alert you to the dynamic roles of nutrition and social support. It will give you tips for coping with caregiver stress, work-related stress, and stress from conflict with others. And you'll find three rewarding mental exercises that boost happiness.

Plus, a special section will show you how to take the sting out of ten common stressors -- everything from being late to feeling burned out. You'll be briefed on relaxation techniques to use when you have only ten minutes -- or even just one. You'll also get suggestions for communicating better, for learning to nurture yourself, and using mindfulness to reduce workday stress.
