From leaders in the field of stress management, clear and concise lessons on recognizing and reducing stress
-- Presents 45 effective stress-reduction techniques that can be used anywhere at any time and can be mastered easily in five minutes
Almost everyone experiences stress, and most believe that stress -- and the aches, pains, and worries it brings -- must simply be endured. But with the help of The Daily Relaxer, written by acknowledged leaders in the field of stress management, anyone can learn, practice, and master a wide variety of stress-reduction techniques for use on a daily basis.
The authors first show readers how to "quietly listen" to their bodies to spot the signs of stress. They then outline a series of mental and physical exercises designed not only to alleviate stress when it arises, but to prevent little day-to-day worries from becoming major sources of anxiety and pain. Concise explanations of such devices as "cue-controlled relaxation", "special place visualization", and "the five-finger exercise" make the book's lessons easy to learn.
With its simple and engaging descriptions of effective techniques and its handsome design, The Daily Relaxer will appeal to a wide audience.
"How relaxed are you at this moment? Where is the tension in your body? If you're like most people, you're probably more aware of your bank balance or the time of day than you are of your own body. And that's the problem, isn't it? We treat our bodies like junk cars built to get us from one place to another, instead of treating them like precious temples enshrining our existence". -- from the book
