If you are interested in learning effective strategies for stress management, June Joseph’s book will help you choose the approach that is best suited for your frame of mind, circumstances and schedule. The book follows a logical progression that covers the source of stress and how it develops into a chronic condition.
Joseph then explores coping strategies that include meditation and mindfulness. Each discipline is thoroughly explained and defined with an accompanying outline of specific techniques designed to get you to a place where you will experience peace and tranquility. In fact, I tried several of these techniques and found that Focused Attention Meditation worked best for me. If you find yourself constantly stressing out about work or life in general, this is really a fantastic book that will help you relax and find more enjoyment in life.

I've been overwhelmed for stress lately and this seemed like a really good book on resolving my issues. I was not disappointed, it details how to deal with our time, emotions and issues in a healthy and intelligently managed way. It definitely helped me put things into perspective and the part on picking up new habits has made a major difference for me! I would definitely recommend this one to anyone who is dealing with similar issues.

Everyday you can go through life and fool yourself that you are not stressed about one thing or another but the end result is most people are stressed on a variety of levels. It can be as simple as you forgot your list when you reach the grocery store to high level when the babysitter didn't show and you have to call in sick, but the end result could be you struggle each day at work or home.
I found this book to describe different levels of stress and how to overcome them. It wasn't one solution fits all but each type of stress has a few suggestions of how to possibly reduce your stress level.
The most common was yoga but I had no idea the variety of yoga that was taught. From simple yoga that included meditation for beginners all the way to advanced yoga.
From this book, I took away an understanding of the daily stress levels you don't even realize you might have that a normal person can go through and ways to possibly reduce them. I myself have enrolled in a basic yoga class for beginners and love it.
Thank you June for taking the time to give me an insight of something I think I will truly enjoy from now on and reduce some of my stress levels on a daily basis.
