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? 

This practical and groundbreaking guide reveals seven paths to fighting the effects of stress to strengthen our natural defences so that our minds remain sharp, and our bodies resilient, no matter the circumstances. 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 minimise its harmful effects, for example, by changing your diet, exercising and other simple habits.  

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

Great book, terrible narration!

What a shame this is read so badly. Makes it very hard to listen to. I may have to buy and read it again :(

Perhaps think about redoing it with another more engaging narrator.

Poor narration

Maybe its better to read the book, however the narrator reads like a robot. Very difficult to listen to.

Could be better

I have heard the author on a podcast and she was quite interesting, but some strange choices have been made in the production of this audiobook. As others have indicated, the narration is very dry, and I found my attention drifting. Also, despite both author and narrator being British, US terms, references and pronunciations are used throughout, so we have 911, cell phone, specialty, comforter and so on, which just sounds odd. The book is essentially a long list of evidence-based ideas for tackling stress. The author has said it was originally written as a 'manual' and that's what it's like to listen to.

Changed my life

As a long term sufferer of anietxy and depression I approached this book, like others, with a sense of hope. This book has made a major difference. I feel like I understand now and know how to manage and improve my condition. In fact, I don't really believe I have a condition anymore. I just have experienced life and all of its challenges. This book has helped me to understand this and how to understand me and my internal workings, so to speak. So many areas of my life have changed during the course of this book. My diet, my sleep, my exercise, my internal dialogue, my interactions with others and my overall self worth. There's still a lot to do and I feel I will be re-reading this book, with a notepad this time. There's a lot to take in. The author has truly earned their PhD. I can't be more thankful for their efforts.

Amazing

I think this is a book that everyone should read. Even if you don’t feel that you are under stress or have cognitive dissonance; this book gives a wide variety of tools to improve both physical and mental health and help others around you.

I am reading it a second time because it’s so full of knowledge that it has taken me two goes to write notes and absorb the knowledge.
