Publisher's Summary

Discover simple, science-based strategies for beating stress at its own game.

When's the best time to exercise - and how much is too much?

Which foods fortify the brain, and which do the opposite?

How can we use music, movement, and motivation to boost our rational brain and keep our cool no matter what life throws our way?

Short bursts of stress are an inevitable part of modern life. But how much is too much? Research is uncovering the delicate balance that can turn a brief stressful episode into systemic overload, eventually leading to inflammation, anxiety, depression, and other chronic health issues.

This practical and groundbreaking guide reveals seven paths to fighting the effects of stress - to strengthen our natural defenses so that our minds remain sharp and our bodies resilient, no matter what life throws at us.

Each chapter examines a common stress agent - including inflammation, an out-of-sync body clock, cortisol levels, and emotional triggers - and presents simple ways to minimize its harmful effects with changes in diet, exercise, and other daily habits - including surprising hacks involving music, eye movements, body temperature, and more.

Translating cutting-edge scientific findings into clear and simple advice, Stress-Proof is the ultimate user's guide for body, mind, and well-being.

Stressful reading it

if you want simple straightforward advice, this is not the book. If you want every sentence to start with "Another experiment shows...." or "In one study...." You may even feel stressed at times trying to get good info out of it, it just comes at you with too much detail.
On the other hand if you are doing a phD and need too much detail then this is the book for you.
You could with a version for ordinary people just wanting some clear easy tips
