Stress Less, Live More
In a world where you have more information, more responsibilities, more electronic devices, and more ways to update your status, it’s no wonder that you also have more stress.
Why? Because in response to all of the increased demands on you, you search for more, too. You want more time, more money, more energy, more sleep, more IT support, more friends to follow, more reality shows to take your minds off the heavy stuff in your lives.
So what’s the result? You may end up on the wrong end of stress’s right hook. And it beats you up. Badly.
The truth is, many people actually misunderstand stress. Many believe that the secret to eliminating stress is, well, eliminating stress. While bubble baths and island living may be the answer for some, stress-elimination isn’t really the goal. You actually need stress—and many stresses are actually good for your health. The secret, then, is figuring out what’s good, what’s bad, and then using that information to minimize the destructive effects of certain stresses, so you can lead a healthy and happy life.
In this book, you’ll find seventy-five of our best “Stress Less” secrets culled from the research we did for several of our bestselling books in the YOU: The Owner’s Manual series. Within these pages, you’ll find some big-picture lessons that will help you redefine what stress is, and you’ll come across dozens of nuggets that will help you in a pinch—to sleep better, feel more energized, and be ready to embrace all of the wonderful things that life has to offer.
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to do some meditation . . . “ommmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.”
Here’s to a healthy and happy YOU,
Michael F. Roizen, MD, and Mehmet C. Oz, MD

If you're like me, there is little new information contained in this book that couldn't be obtained by reading the other YOU books. HOWEVER, if you have no interest in reading all of the books - and Stress is of particular interest to you - this is a handy, concise, little tome that brings together ALL of the 'Stress' tidbits sprinkled throughout the other books.
So, if you're a one-stop shopper - This is your book!

This reads more like an extended pamphlet. It's like a cheat sheet to all Dr. Oz's other books. I would have preferred to borrow it from the library. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Elizabeth Courage
