Let your body win : stress management plain & simple

From Library Journal:

Many people know they should stop and smell the roses but don't. These two authors want to help readers make it happen. Community counselor Ferguson's approach involves creating an awareness of situations that trigger cortisol, the fight/flight hormone, and learning how to react healthfully to them. She provides self-assessment tools and suggests stress-reduction activities that are geared toward those who hate exercise, tend toward introversion, or have been in a rut. Author Hershey (Soul Gardening) riffs on the principle of Sabbath, aiming toward carving out a "being space" in order to pray, touch, rest, etc. He pulls from a number of spiritual traditions to provide readers with seasonal activities/nonactivities to aid in relaxation and appreciation of the surrounding world. For a quick and easy guide to stress management, Ferguson is the ticket. For an alternative way of thinking, try Hershey. (c) Copyright 2010.
