“This book gives you many action-oriented ways of coping with your anxiety about anxiety.”

—Albert Ellis, PhD, President, Albert Ellis Institute

Is your job tying your stomach in knots? Do you toss and turn in bed at night? Are your ulcers having ulcers? Face it—you’ve got too much stress in your life, and it’s time to give yourself a break. The consequences of not dealing with stress range from poor health and broken marriages to premature death: not a very cheerful outlook. Thankfully, all kinds of stress reduction approaches are available today: from breathing and posture to imagery and meditation. These new ideas have taken the world by storm—and taken the pressure cooker off the fire for millions of chilled-out people around the world.

Whether it’s love, work, family, or something else that’s got your anxiety in the red zone, here’s an easy way to improve your outlook. Stress Management For Dummies will help you identify the stress triggers in your life and cut them down to size quickly, with tips on how to:

  • Determine your stress level
