The Biology Of Beating Stress
Description: Stress is killing us unilaterally. All races, creeds, colors, socio-economic groups, political parties it does not discriminate. According to a recent study by the American Institute of Stress, 48% of stress sufferers say stress has a negative impact on their personal and professional lives. With an abundance of information on stress readily available on the Web and through other media outlets, people need a mediator to help them separate fact from fiction. Jeanne Ricks is that mediator.

With quick and easily digestible reference points, each page is something readers will want to return to again and again. In addition to breathing and relaxation techniques, The Biology of Beating Stress shows readers how to make the mental shift toward not merely managing their stress, but actually using stress to their advantage!
