Why are levels of anxiety and stress rising faster than ever before? Why has no one come up with a solution that offers true and lasting relief? Why has no one found the key to calm? This book not only answers these questions, it also offers the effective treatment that we all need. In five simple and effective steps we learn to: Stop, Look and Listen - Stop reacting to what's going on 'without', and regain inner balance and focus. Take Care of Your Best Asset - The best way to adapt to change and solve new problems is to start with the healthiest body and mind possible. Know Yourself - Discover your talents and possibilities, and learn how to use them to best advantage. Simplify - Streamline your life so you have the time and energy not only to cope more effectively with everyday life, but also to embrace new challenges. Reach Out - Understand the benefits of connecting socially, and learn to do so in a way that ensures a sense of safety and meaning. Linda Blair's holistic 5-step plan includes mindfulness techniques as well as practical life changes presented clearly and simply, to help us find balance, purpose and tranquillity in our everyday lives.
