Would I recommend Success with Stress by Jae Ellard? This book is short, concise, straight to the point, easy to read and offers realistic, practical suggestions for readers. Everyone's path to finding success with stress is different and this book really does allow readers to customize their reading experience. It is just necessary to slow down and consider how the author's thoughts and suggestions apply to the reader's personal situation. If you aren't a fan of writing inside your books, as I did, jot things down in a notebook or journal. (The giveaway below is for both the book and a companion notebook!) I would recommend this book to someone seeking to root out the basics of stress and apply some simple techniques and practices toward personal stress management.
I received a copy of this book from the author or publisher. All opinions are my own.
She begins with defining what stress is and that most kinds of stress can be traced to issues concerning not communicating properly with others as well as not respecting our personal boundaries. She then gives a bit of a scientific background on how the chemicals in our brain and body react to different types of stress.
A subheading "5 Strategies for Success with Stress" gives practical advice on how to accept the elements in your life that are truly causing you stress and how to deal with them. We also learn how eliminating multitasking can decrease our stress level.
A small, easy-to-read book with a lot of practical suggestions. Just a quick note, the quote on page 67: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" is not an old adage. It is found in the Bible in Luke 6:31 "“Also, just as you want men to do to you, do the same way to them" (NWT). I found it paradoxical that the book uses both the theory of evolution in the beginning of the book as well as a Biblical quote as a basis for her advice.
I particularly liked the statement, "When experiencing stress, do you react or respond?"
Included in this book are things individual's do to void stress but ends up causing greater stress in one's own life.
There are plenty of places within the book where one, can either keep a journal or make notations of both. If each individual would follow these guideline's closely, hiss/her life would be mostly stress-free, and would ease the stress of one's associates, as well.
With no excess wording, this book is concise, to the point and easily understood. It could only improve by adding a few more examples.
This earns a Strong Four Stars.
This was gifted me but I was not compelled to offer appositive review. This is my honest review.
I read this book for my husband. I want to help him with his stress. It affects me as his wife. He is so stress about his work. I know that he cannot wait to retire very soon. He has few years left before his agony at work would be over.
I learned one very important lesson from this book is communication. It is the most vital to deal with stress. You have to communicate and let go of that emotion that stressed you out. I know that is easy to say than done.
Growing up poor, stress is out of our concern. We deal with tough situation that it does not bother us. When I am stress or have any problems, I pray to God, pour my emotions out to Him. My best remedy for stress is music. I listened to music and sing.
Success With Stress is a short but sensible book that explains that stress is actually a necessary function of our bodies but chronic stress is not only unhealthy but it can even lead to death. It can cause a multitude of health problems including high blood pressure, anxiety, ulcers and more.
Jae Ellard gives Five Strategies for Success with Stress. They're great strategies and anyone who follows them should be able to handle stress in a constructive way. My husband unknowingly follows these strategies and handles everything that's thrown our way very well. That attitude rubs off on others, too.
I recommend this book for anyone who is in a stressful job, deals with a lot of stress at home, or who doesn't handle stress well.
