Stress has been described as a modern epidemic and the number one threat to the physical health, emotional well-being, and productivity of modern men and women. This book goes beyond simplistic and mechanical explanations of the stress response to a comprehensive view of how mind, body, and emotions interact to create stress. We are given a wealth of practical techniques to relax both body and mind and to restore health and harmony to our lives. Exercise, diet, meditation, relaxation procedures, breathing techniques, and guidelines for a healthy lifestyle are presented in a manner that is easy to understand and apply.
