The Mayo Clinic Guide to Stress-Free Living


Product Description

Imported from USA

Have you ever driven several miles without noticing anything on the road, or read a page in a book without registering
any of it? Do the day's worries and disappointments crowd your mind as you're trying to fall asleep at night? Do you
feel stressed much of the time and aren't sure how to find peace? In this book, Amit Sood, M.D., M.Sc., a Mayo Clinic
specialist in stress and resiliency, reveals how the mind's instinctive restlessness and shortsightedness generate
stress and anxiety and presents strategies for living a more peaceful life. The book is based on the highly popular
stress management program offered at Mayo Clinic that Dr. Sood developed after two decades of work with tens of
thousands of people.

Drawing on groundbreaking brain research, Dr. Sood helps you understand the brain's two modes and how an imbalance
between them produces unwanted stress. From this basis, you learn skills that will help you:

Develop deep and sustained attention
Practice gratitude, compassion and acceptance
Live a meaningful life
Cultivate nurturing relationships
Achieve your highest potential

All of these concepts are weaved into a practical and fun journey that has been tested in numerous scientific studies,
with consistently positive results. Take the first step to discover greater peace and joy for you and your loved ones.

"Dr. Sood has put together a simple, secular and structured program that is anchored in science, is free of rituals and
dogmas, and is accessible to everyone. This book can change your life."--Dr. Andrew Weil

"An important innovative approach to well-being, one we all should know about."--Dr. Daniel Goleman
