8 Keys to Stress Management Reviews
First sentence: "Stress is a regular--even healthy--part of life."In this book, Ms. Scott gives recommendations and techniques for dealing with stress that are helpful no matter what your stress or your schedule. I picked this up on CD after deciding that I needed to do something about the stress in my life. Most of the keys and techniques in this book are nothing earth-shattering, but the author does a great job in laying out the techniques, how they are useful, and the best techniques for immediate stress relief as well as long-acting techniques that create a barrier against stress. I may not follow all the techniques in this book, but I feel that two or three will be helpful to me. A complaint I do have about this book is that it got very repetitive over the last few chapters. I got tired of constantly hearing about meditation exercises and how to start a journal. I think this repetition was mainly due to the fact that the author wrote the book so that it did not have to be read straight through in chronological order. I don't know if this is a good or bad thing, but it was frustrating especially when listening to the audiobook where it is difficult to skip over things you have read before. Other than that I thought the book was quite good and I recommend it to those who are wanting to do something about the stress in their life but are unsure where to start.
8 Keys to Stress Management by Elizabeth Ann Scott was won by me on Goodreads. I offered to rate the book of my own free will.I found this book to be wonderful at allowing the reader to see how and why they are having stress related issues and what they can do to change things in their lives to help erase some of the anguish and anxiety that they have. I found the "rules" simple enough to follow, and hopefully, will be able to implement them in my life.I would recommend this book to everyone as I don't really know anyone who has no stress of some kind in their lives. If they don't have any, that is wonderful, but if you do, please do yourself a favor and get this book to help you make necessary adjustments in your life to make it better and more fulfilling.
Being a huge fan of Elizabeth Scott's about.com Stress Management page, I was thrilled to discover she was writing the book '8 Keys to Stress Management'. '8 Keys to Stress Management' is unique in that it inspires and empowers readers to identify stressors and helps them discover pro-active and positive ways to either manage or eliminate them. This is particularly helpful because sometimes it's impossible or just not practical to completely eliminate all people, places, or things that present us with stress. Learning to live with stress can be tricky, but these 8 well thought-out and thoroughly researched keys can really help unlock the secret door to long term, healthy self acceptance.
What an awesome, helpful book! This author definitely knows her subject - stress management. I love practical books and this fits that description. She writes in an easy to read format, but yet gives vital and practical information for anyone experiencing stress, which of course is everyone : ) From breathing techniques to lifestyle changes and everything in between. I highly recommend this book and it would also make a great gift, since it's really a universal problem in today's world. A must-read, A+
I've read a lot on similar topics, and while there wasn't anything new in this book, it was a very concise and practical summary of different things people can do to help stress. Things like making sure you get enough sleep, exercise, meditation, journaling, etc. I am sure this is all good advice; the problem is actually doing it! I think this book would appeal especially to busy people who normally wouldn't read a "self help" type book. **I received a free copy of this book as a Good Reads First Reads Giveaway.**
I somehow missed writing a review for this book. I won it on goodreads. There wasn't anything in this book I hadn't come across before, but it was nice to have stress management boiled down to 8 keys. Everyone is different so the keys that are most helpful to you might not be very helpful to someone else. Some of the techniques are coming in handy during my current life crisis.
Just ok for me. Simple and basic steps to reduce stress. Nothing I haven't heard before but probably a good resources for individuals that haven't had much "stress" background.
One thing I learned that I can try to do is when walking to concentrate on my breath or focus on my steps.
