Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I'm never going to finish this project on time. This is hopeless; everything's going wrong. Why do I try to do everything at once? A busy life is full of stressful situations — that's a given. But that doesn't mean there is nothing you can do. Your thoughts can actually affect the way your brain processes stress, for better or worse. Most of the time, our brains compound the problem, adding thoughts of self-doubt and frustration to already difficult situations.

Stress Less, Live More presents a program based in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) that can help you train your brain to react to stress in a different way. With the mindfulness and acceptance techniques in this book, you'll clear out mental clutter, enhance your focus, and concentrate on the present moment, so that you can channel your energy into what matters most to you. It's that simple.

  • Learn to mindfully accept what can't be changed
  • Find peace and contentment in the present moment
  • Practice relaxation skills you can use to calm yourself in a crisis
  • Make time for yourself by asserting your right to say 'no'

 

Synopsis:

In Stress Less, Live More, a health education specialist presents a comprehensive, effective plan for stress reduction that incorporates acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and classic relaxation strategies.

Synopsis:

With its focus on psychological flexibility and making peace with the present moment, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a perfect fit for the treatment of stress, yet this is the first book to apply ACT to stress management. Richard Blonna's ACT-based approach to coping with stress, Stress Less, Live More, combines cutting-edge psychological techniques drawn from ACT with classic relaxation strategies such as meditation, visualization, and systematic muscle relaxation.

This comprehensive guide to stress management helps readers act in ways that reinforce their big-picture values without being distracted by day-to-day mental clutter. Readers also learn to defuse from unnecessary stressful thought traps such as the 'thoughts are reality' trap and the 'thoughts are orders' trap so that they can be simultaneously more productive and more relaxed. The book includes a useful chapter that shows readers how to assert their rights to say 'no' and 'I don't care, ' stop solving other people's problems, and demand time for themselves.
