If you are tired of feeling stressed, working too many hours or just feeling miserable, Carl Vernon's The Less-Stress Lifestyle will help you manage it all. As a follow-up to his best-selling book Anxiety Rebalance, Carl shares the tools and techniques he used to go from being highly anxious and stressed, to enjoying a lifestyle of freedom and choice.
Carl's advice is that we cannot remove stress from life - it helps us get things done - but when stress starts to take over it's time to take back control. For example, Carl suggests you should throw away the concept of a work/life balance. Why? Because they are the same thing.
Instead he shows you how to use stress to your advantage and gives you the tools to: Move stress out of your way using his 'Stress Wall' technique - Make money work for you, instead of you working for money - Instantly improve your mood and stay positive with 'The Happiness Trick' - Get back time and energy by distinguishing bad stress from good - Effectively organise and manage your life to create more time for the things you enjoy
The Less-Stress Lifestyle is an invaluable guide for the many thousands of people affected by stress and its related disorders and will help you to rediscover all aspects of your life.
...But there are some useful tips (even if they are somewhat clichéd). Unfortunately, you can tell the author is from a sales background, from the opportunities taken to promote quite a lot of websites and brands, including his own. I did like the fact that the book is read by the author - that is always a good thing. There is no waffle and the book is a good length. There was a summary at the end of the book, of the main points covered, which was really useful.
