Emma Young has no history of mental illness, just like everyone else, occasionally she gets down, anxious and disproportionately stressed. Disappointed that her mind does not always deal well with the pressures of modern life, Emma decided to go on mind-toning journey. Is it possible to tone your mind just as you can tone your body so it becomes more resilient and better prepared to deal with what life throws at you? By looking at some of the new and tried and tested techniques, from meditation to mental preparation involved in extreme sports and military training, Emma has devised a programme that will help everyone achieve mental stability.

Review:

I love the balance of scientific evidence, informed opinion and personal experience... I found I was able to get past some of my preconceived notions and become more open to considering various approaches to stress management that I would otherwise have dismissed. * Carol Ewing Garber, Professor of Movement Sciences, Columbia University and President, American College of Sports Medicine * A wonderful personal account of healthy ways of coping and flourishing in our fast-paced society today * Rajita Sinha, Professor of Psychiatry, Yale Medical School and Director, Yale Stress Centre * Young won't settle for any shoddy theories in her quest to develop a 'comprehensive programme that could build basic mental strength' * Elle * Sane may well be the 'wellness bible' we've all been searching for. * Marie Claire * I'd highly recommend her thought-provoking book. * Lauren Laverne, BBC Radio 6 * Brilliant * Mail on Sunday *
