    288 pages, Mwella Publishing
    Release date: July 1, 2012

    Note: I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher for purpose of review.

    In today’s world, it seems we are constantly under attack from stress from multiple sources. These stress points, allowed to continue unchecked; undermine our health in a variety of ways both mental and physical. This book has outlined very specifically, a plan by which we can not only reduce the stress in our life, but overcome it entirely; thereby improving our health vastly and adding years to our lifespan.

    The author, Paul Huljich, had reached what most of us would consider the pinnacle of success as a very well-to-do business owner. What he failed to realize though, despite a tell tale sign here or there; was the dire toll that stress was taking on his health. He eventually reached the point of a complete breakdown and was ultimately diagnosed with stress-induced bipolar disorder by numerous medical professionals. This diagnosis carried with it a life-time sentence of multiple drugs and the prediction that he would have relapses from time to time throughout the years. The story of how Paul overcame his devastating, stress-induced mental illness and proved the medical professionals wrong is nothing short of amazing.

    In this book Paul has outlined for all of us the nine specific steps he followed to eliminate stress from his life and to live a healthy life, both mentally and physically. While most people hide their present or past mental illnesses because of the stigma attached to those conditions, Paul has come forward in an effort to help others and to prevent them from experiencing the illness and collapse that devastated his life. This book is an integral tool and lesson that we can all use and learn from. I highly recommend it to everyone.

    We all have stress in our lives, it is just how we handle this stress is the key. I think in this day and age what with all the conveniences of our digital world, we find ourselves having to constantly do more and more in a day. Stress affects our work, school and family and if not under control and handled by each and every one of us, we could find ourselves in the same situation as the author of Stress Pandemic, Paul Huljich, He suffered a complete mental breakdown. While in treatment Paul started doing research on stress and while doing so he wanted to share what he has learned by writing this book.
    In the book Paul has outlined the nine steps to mastering stress:
    Step 1: Take Charge
    Step 2: Kick Your Bad habits
    Step 3: Learn to Say No
    Step 4: Affirmations
    Step 5:Exercise
    Step 6: Nutrition
    Step 7: Sleep
    Step 8: the Power of Awareness
    Step 9: Don't Give Up
    In the back of the book there is a big section on resources, a glossary of terms used in the book, suggestions for breathing and stretching exercises, nutrition, sleep and some very interesting appendixes. I found this book to be very interesting, well thought out and researched and what I liked the most is that it was written by someone who actually had the mental illness caused by stress as opposed to something written by a self help guru who never experienced what Mr. Huljich has. I highly recommend it if you are wanting to change your life in a way that does not add to the stress you may already have.
