Publisher's Summary

Are you tired of being stressed out all the time? Do you want to feel better, look better, sleep better, and be much happier?

Do you want to change but aren't sure what to do?

Let's start with a thought experiment. Take a moment to imagine yourself, only a more calm and peaceful version. Think of how you'd be at work, at home, with those you love and those you don't. Think of all the things you'd do differently, how you would feel and look.

During this 21-day challenge, we'll be seeking first to understand the way we stress and why and then finding smart, intuitive ways to deal with it. We won't be trying to cultivate the calm of a Zen master; that's not realistic. Instead, we'll look at the best ways to live with stress as you are in your life right now.

Good self-help book sharing common sense knowledge and some advise that was new to me. Where this books shines is its set-up, new habits and self awareness take time to develop. Each day of the challenge gives you a little more insight in this thing called "stress" and the exercises help to put the knowledge into practice and sink deeper into your psyche. I found myself repeating some days of the challenge as I went through the book, either because I didn't have the peace of mind to put 5 minutes aside for a new chapter or because the exercise of the previous day really resonated with me. If you're prone to stress and anxiety I can highly recommend this audiobook, just go along the challenge at your own pace.

awesome guide

Awesome guide! I have listened to numerous self-development books and this was by far the best one yet. My friends and co-workers even formed a book club around it. If you have a sense of humor (if you don't, that is your first problem) and want to improve your life, GET THIS BOOK!

21 day challenge accepted!

Love that I'm now able to listen to some of my favorite kindle books via Audible, I usually put them on in the train on my way to work, listen to 1 chapter, and then ponder about the daily exercise. Turns a boring commute into valuable me-time :)

The advice in this book was nothing I didn't knew, but did a great job in filling that gap between knowing you have to do something and actually doing it. I really appreciate the 21 day challenge concept, it works for me. I'm in week 2 of the stress management challenge and I've seen a significant improvements in both sleep and, unexpectedly, my productivity.

The narration was easy to follow for a non-native English speaker.

Real-life help for stress reduction

This book contains a lot of practical advice in a non overwhelming way for one to develop new habits and reduce stress. Many we know we should do, but don't.. The author shows you how easy it is to remake your life and get your priorities straight. In bite size chapters she shows you how to eliminate the bad habits that are harming you and replace them with good behaviors and tactics that will allow you to become more productive and resilient.

Helpful!

What did you like best about this story?

The breakdown of the book into 21 days, with each day having an exercise/task. There's a lot of good self-help books out there, but this one guides you in making actual change instead of just reading about it. Also good for people like me that can't concentrate for more than a few minutes; the chapters are short and to the point.

Nice formula!

I do two jobs, aside that, I have to keep the house and tend to the needs of the family as well. This book has made me understand the need to take a break and not get over worked in all I do. The author was right in stating the fact that stress cannot be avoided as she made it clear saying "we don't want to get rid of stress. Not at all. But we do want to manage it." Sometimes, stress is beneficial in things such as motivation, adaptation and reactions even excitement. The issue is that too much of it, however, is a bad thing that can lead to depression, heart attacks, ulcers, fights and everything in between. My favorite suggestions to manage stress were reserving time for self-care, treating yourself with a massage, cuddling with our special someone(that is so soothing) and knowing that we don't have to be perfect. I've listened to Francie Wyck's narration before and really enjoy her voice and style, recommended!

Prefer paperback

The book and narrator are great, but I wish I'd have ordered the paperback instead of the audible version.

burnout recovery

This was the perfect book to help with my burnout recovery. You only need 5-10 minutes of concentration to listen to the daily chapter and I found the exercises to be realistic; not too challenging but really helpful, especially when you proceed further into the challenge and all the little changes and activities start to add up. Highly recommended!

Not Helpful

Honestly, this is generic and unhelpful. It winds up being so trivial that it's actually stressful all by itself. Try anything else.
