I love reading self-help books. I don't know why. I like doing yoga even though my brothers and my father used to make fun of me. When I saw this book on Amazon for free, I thought "Why Not?"
I learned a couple of new techniques that I am going to try. I am also going to research some names, for example, a nutritionist Kathryn Marsden, and Karen Kingston. Also, look into flylady.com. When you are beyond stress, she reminded me of the prayer: "God, give me the serenity to accept things I cannot ch

Let's face it, who doesn't have at least a bit of stress in their life? That's why I'm always open to ways of reducing stress and making life a little bit better. I picked this up as a Kindle freebie (still free as I write the review) and compared with the last non-fiction guide I picked up for free this one was pretty good.

Unsurprisingly it provides 52 ways to try and reduce stress levels. These hints encompass diet, organisation, relaxation and plenty more. What I liked was that the author ack

It was intriguing. Nothing new, actually, but it's a nice collection of good advices. I like the idea that your prorities have to change when everything is on your head. You have to choose what will be the most important. Also, I like the idea to overcome procrastination. Even though I don't like deviding tasks into many pieces and doing just bits of that and bits of other. That's not for me but the idea is nice itself.

I love the thought of planning realistically but dreaming big. It's not that

This is one of the best self help books I have read off late. Can be described as a lively book full of real life examples with many pages dedicated to real questions asked by the toughest of the audience. Elisabeth Wilson is a doctor turned journalist/author.
The reader is taken through a journey of 52 brilliant ideas which touch each and every aspect of stress ever recorded which is supposed to have an adverse effect on the mental and physical balance of an individual, if neglected. Each and ev

A really good collection of ideas which are well-thought out.

Some ideas I'm already using. Others I knew of, but needed a kick up the rear to encourage me to implement them. And some ideas are new and fresh.

I read the book at the point in my life where I recognised that I needed to review and upgrade my response to stress, and now book myself at least 45 mins daily for qi gong, meditation and yoga, whilst also using mini meditation moments to balance my energy better through the day.

Freebie from Kindle which I found surprisingly interesting. The style is friendly, the advice isn't completely esoteric, but achievable. Also, a lot of it involves lists and stationery, which are both passions of mine! Probably nothing ground-breaking in it, but it's nice to have it in bite sized pieces to test out in your daily life. I have already started using the 10,20,30 method to curb my tendency to procrastinate. It actually worked very well.

I got this as a Kindle Freebie. It's from an English author so some of the slang and grammar was awkward to read but the ideas presented are helpful. I have tried a few already and can see them being effective. I hope to re-read it again sometime and take some notes.
Jeff
Solid book with tips for reducing stress. It is a quick read, with most chapters taking about five minutes. I see this more as an organizational efficiency book with a number of tricks worth trying.
Rosemary Daly
Are you stressed? This little work will give you 52 wonderful - doable - usable ideas to help combat it. I've already tried some - and it has been quite beneficial.
Candice Carden
I wish I would have gotten this in print instead of on my kindle! There are so many fantastic ideas that would be easy to implement into my life!
Ruth Laura Edlund
It actually had a few useful suggestions! My low expectations (it was free from amazon.com) were exceeded.
Shanna
It was okay. Not sure it helped any, but it has some good tips in it.
Hafizuddin
