9780615529684: Smarts and Stamina: The Busy Person's Guide to Optimal Health and Performance

The SaS model uses the path of least resistance to help you achieve sustainable lifestyle change, so the process requires as little will-power as possible. Too tired to exercise this week? That's fine, work on our sleep instead.  Not really interested in watching what you eat today? Try some mood-boosters in the meantime.  
Whether you want something short and sweet or complete and thorough, you can have it your way. With very short and easy to digest chapters, SaS is entirely customizable so you can decide what you want from it. But don't be fooled by how simple things look: lots of scientific and empirical research went into each section to insure you the best results possible.  SaS also makes you a co-author by giving you ample space to record your own experiences and observations as you go along.  Enough people tell you what you should and shouldn't do already! SaS doesn't preach, and respects your ability to choose what tickles your fancy and suits your lifestyle.  
Because it is full of questions and activities, SaS is also an excellent tool for wellness coaches to use with clients.

About the Author:

After a first career in the fast-paced corporate world, Marie-Josée Shaar made it her mission to reverse the current epidemics of sleep deprivation, obesity, depression, and physical inactivity. A Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) from the University of Pennsylvania, she is certified as a Nutrition and Wellness Consultant and as a Personal Trainer. Her clients and colleagues find that her joyful energy brings out their own strengths and positivity. She and her husband Rob find joie de vivre hiking, biking, scuba diving and entertaining friends over nice and healthy dinner parties. They divide their time between homes in Philadelphia and Montreal.

Kathryn Britton, MAPP, is the Associate Editor of Positive Psychology News Daily. A professional coach, she has authored more than 70 articles and edited 2 books on applications of positive psychology to daily life. As a former software engineer, Kathryn is detail-oriented, yet creative and visionary at the same time. She teaches positive workplace concepts to graduate students in project management at the University of Maryland. She and her husband Ed raised their 2 children in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. They nourish their flame with ballroom dancing, hiking, reading aloud about science, and finding new ways to cook vegetables.
