More than forty approaches to stress reduction, management, and prevention are covered in this book, giving you practical guidance applicable to most lives' issues and circumstances.
This book will help people struggling with challenging situations. For example, those who work in stressful jobs are involved in difficult personal or toxic relationships. In addition, it will help those with self-destructive behavior, self-doubt, difficulty making intentional decisions, and many other challenging situations. And more importantly, it helps people from getting involved in these and other difficult situations and therefore prevents or reduces stress before it is manifested.
New Concepts: This book also provides you with many opportunities to simplify the management and prevention of stress by using a new acronym: S.T.R.E.S.S, that allows incorporating any of the forty-plus actions. These actions have been newly categorized into three main groups called Physical Actions, Mental Actions, and Community Actions. This approach will streamline, modify, and enhance treatment and prevention of stress outcomes when applied appropriately. In addition, you are provided with practical ideas, solutions, or options that, when also used, are also likely to result in the reduction or prevention of your stress.
You will also be introduced to a "new relationships (particularly toxic ones ) mental disorder called Abstract Kidnapping Disorder - A.K.D." This is associated with the termination of relationships.
