With soaring oil/gas prices causing the entire cost of living to massively upswing, many of us are currently feeling economically stressed. It's enough to make even the most resilient of souls feel frustrated. So when the book Stress Control for Peace of Mind by Linda Andrews was donated to our collection, I jumped at the chance to review it.

Stress Control for Peace of Mind explains the anatomy and physiology of the stress response in a way that is easy to understand without a single biology class. It delves into the areas and ways of coping with stress, and does so with a great deal of respect in understanding that different approaches work for different people.

Whether your personality style is one that is best suited to a mental approach or a meditative approach, you will find this book could be of benefit to you. The author clearly tells you based on the approach you feel most comfortable with and which sections might apply best for you! The sections of the book on Yoga and meditation have easy to understand sections. I left the book feeling more inclined to devote more time to my own meditative practice.

The exercises were so simple --even I could do them! This is a great book to suggest to someone who doesn't meditate and thinks it is way complicated to even try. It is a good book to leave around the house to remind yourself that no matter how bad it seems - you can do things to help yourself cope and change the course of your life!

Stress Control for Peace of Mind has a sturdy easy to clean cover with spiral bound pages that open fully and easily.
