Stress is an unavoidable aspect of modern life. But while we cannot escape life’s pressures, we can change our reaction to them. If you are stuck in a vicious cycle of stress and fatigue, The Stress Cure will explain how to ‘reset’ your mind and body to achieve a calmer, more resilient and balanced approach to life.
The Stress Cure will show you how to:
• Uncover your stress triggers and self-defeating negative beliefs
• Stop anxiety and panic
• Increase your energy naturally and escape the sugar and stimulant trap
• Sleep well and wake refreshed
• Learn simple exercises to feel calmer and more positive
• Fuel up with energising food and feel-good nutrients
• Manage your time more effectively
• Build resilience to make yourself stress-proof
Along with quick fixes to feel better now, practical techniques to de-stress and delicious recipes, The Stress Cure includes a 30-day action plan to help you thrive, rather than simply survive, in today’s fast and ever-changing world.
