Summary

Summary

Written in the quick-witted style of a true cosmopolitan, "Urban Ease" is an exhaustive anecdotal guide showing big-city dwellers how they can simplify their lives, reduce stress, and maximize the pleasures of urban living. By identifying the most common big-city annoyances that trigger stress, Dr. Allen Elkin provides tips for building greater resistance and reducing the opportunity for stressful situations. Citing such problems as restrictions in space, clutter and lack of organization, overabundance of distractions, aggravating neighbors, and a lack of personal time, this guide deconstructs patterns in the life of a city dweller and recommends how to make them simpler and more enjoyable.
