Everyone needs and wants to stress less. Decreasing our stress levels improves health and quality of life. ;Stress Less: A toolbox for wellness provides easily accessible practices in the conversational, down-to-earth, hopeful and personable approach of Dr. Kerry Bennett. From the introduction: Stress is ubiquitous. It affects all off us and has dramatic effects on our bodies and minds. Stress causes problems with our memories and contributes to the biggest killers in our society such as stroke, heart disease and possibly cancer. Learning how to stress less takes practice. We practice many things in life but often don't give the time we need to practice training ourselves to respond instead of react. We are hardwired through our nervous systems to be on alert for danger. We react through the flight, fight and freeze of our sympathetic nervous system (SNS). While that was adaptive for our survival teleologically we now often live with lots of SNS activation through worry, constant thoughts, throwing ourselves into work or shutting down. We cut off from truth, people, and from what we really want and need. The book is an offering of 47 tools to help people find practices that are accessible and easy to use. It can be used on the spot, for daily practice or joyous exploration. The practices are integrated from many different traditions and studies.

Review:

Dr. Bennett's Stress Less touched me deeply. In her book her offerings of movement, mindfulness and the Four Agreements changed my ability to work with a difficult boss. My day to day life has improved so much because of her simple yet powerful teachings! --Stephanie Mulcahey, Stress Less workshop attendee

Learning that emotions only last 90 seconds unless they are fuel with thoughts helped my daughter especially at school. I was surprised at how much this book helped her and even me in my daily life. --Colls S., Teacher and Mother

Every page of this book has something to help me stress less. Sometimes I just open it randomly and it seems like it always exactly what I need to help me in that moment. Each offering is only 1-3 pages long so I can use it right away. I also try to read one concept each day and practice it as I go through my life. --JG, Medical Doctor
