This was such a short book! I wanted it to be longer but I enjoyed what was in here.
After a long battle with depression I was able to take control, for the most part. There are some days where it is really hard though. That’s where this book comes in handy! Jennifer talks about how to take control of those negative thoughts and really get them out so you can start de-stressing! So many people today stress, stress, stress! This book is how to get that stress under control!
“Stress can be reduced when one has a sense of control, an outlet, or emotional support.”
It is amazing what a few short words of encouragement, to yourself, can do. I started a new job today and practiced her idea of saying “I’m excited” instead of “I’m anxious”. Every time I started feeling like I was going to the other side I would say to myself once again that I am excited! And I was, even though new jobs bring jitters.
I also really enjoyed some of her tips, like:
- Don’t force yourself to exercise – when forcing yourself, you will lose the enjoyment of the experience and just stress yourself out!
- Make friends
- Eliminate or minimize distractions (internal and external!)
- Find the sweet spot to your anxiety!
These do not sound difficult, really, but in practice they can be hard for someone that has never done them. Jennifer helps take these in chunks so they are easy to understand and even easier to implement!
I’m most excited about the visualization process. I already do this but have not worked to do it daily. I’m teaching my hubby and cannot wait to see the results!
In short: This was a short, but really good book, chock full of information about training yourself for less stress. A lot of the ideas I have already known about and love, now to keep putting them into practice.
