You can't annihilate stress. But you can learn to manage it peacefully--and you don't need to radically change your life to do so.
The powerful author team who crafted this book has the research to prove it--with more than a half dozen studies to date showing the program's efficacy. Marrying the whole-person, systemic approach of integrative medicine with the science of resilience and the tenets of positive psychology, the authors created a method that attacks stress on every level. This three-pronged approach gets at its roots, so stress can't flourish, but you can. In just 14 days, the authors teach you a new way to respond and, in turn, a new way to live.
