5.0 out of 5 stars Full of useful ideas 22 Aug 2011
By TopCat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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 acknowledges life will never be stress free, and that in fact it's probably not healthy to be that way, but seeks to provide ideas to suit all sorts of people. She also accepts that some of the hints may be a bit zen or new age for some people but gives reasons as to why they are worth a try and approaches the whole thing with a touch of humour. The fact that it's not presenting a vision of utopia made me feel like the ideas were achievable. I've already put some of the ideas into practice and am planning to try some more. I loved No. 26 Restoration Day, a sort of duvet day combined with a bit of gentle exercise and mini-detox.

Each idea starts with a description, followed by an activity to try, then another idea appearing in the book that relates to it, followed by a Defining Idea - a quote, then a Q&A to pick up on areas that might be difficult or additional info. Some of it is common sense, and other ideas may not be covered in sufficient depth if you have already read a lot about topics like aromatherapy, but it covers such a range that was fine with me.

Handily this book is well-formatted with a proper table of contents with a brief description and a link to each of the ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars a really handy set of tips 19 May 2010
Format:Paperback
i keep this book in my bathroom library and dip into it frequently to reassert the ideas here. They are not all applicable to everyone but there are enough good ideas in there that everyone will find a few excellent nuggets of practical advice. Lots of it is 'common sense' if such a thing exists but i think its a really good point of reference to remind yourself when things maybe getting out of control. My personal favourite is the ten minute trick which ive evangelised to all and sundry to looks of bewilderment and much scoffing. Thanks to this method i can thoroughly clean my house from top to bottom, get my guitar practice and exercises done, create a website and weed the garden in the space of a saturday morning and none of it feels like a chore. I also like the memory bowl, ditch the debt and advice about coping at work

5.0 out of 5 stars Stress proof your life 22 July 2011
By Sherry
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this onto my Kindle this afternoon and spent a lovely (stress free) couple of hours flipping through it. I will definitely be trying out some of the techniques. Very well written, informative, inspiring and at times funny. Even if you aren't particularly stressed it is still a good read if, like me, you just want to make your life a bit more organised and focused.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stress proof your life - Elisabeth Wilson 7 Jan 2008
Format:Paperback
A relative bought this book for me. It proved to be very useful. You can read the parts that relate to how you feel the day that you pick it up and move quite easily to related topics in the book. It helped me to make a decision about how I was letting stress affect my life. I let go of a lot of old feelings and bad memories and moved on. A brilliant book for all to pick up and read.

4.0 out of 5 stars lots of good ideas and tips 4 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is probably one of the best books i've read about dealing with stress. Loads of advice and sense that is practical and easy to apply to your own circumstances. It's an easy book to dip in and out of when you need to and I liked the 'ideas and tips' sections at the end of each chapter, which you can choose to try if you like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read and relax! 10 Nov 2007
Format:Paperback
This is the "Brilliant Ideas" series at its best. An easy-to-read digestible book of supportive advice which encourages you to take steps to help yourself. Having suffered chronic stress in the workplace I found the style of this book reassuring. It is a "must-buy" for yourself and others. It's format is accessible even for those who don't read much.

5.0 out of 5 stars readable 19 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read self help books before and they always leave me cold - but this is a great book. For a self help book it is actually enjoyable!!!! Well written and good humoured - it left me full of positivity (which I hadn't been feeling before) and it's a great book to keep returning to (so ideal for Kindle). If you don't do self help, do this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and sweet 17 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I stumbled across this by accident and was very happy that I did so. It's got some fairly simple ideas but with great & realistic tips to stay focused and happy. Luckily I'm fairly stress free but will certainly dip in and out of this for a refresher.
