I stumbled across this book when I was looking for something on meditation. Basically, I was feeling overwhelmed with my daily life, and there was this book staring at me on the shelves. It has helped me identify my stress, why I let it consume me. But what's even better is that it gives you simple, step-by-step instructions about how to reclaim a life full of joy, while still providing the life I want for my family. This book is very geared towards mothers although the title doesn't state that.

If there¿s one thing that women everywhere know about, it¿s stress. Stress about kids, relationships, work, dinner, laundry¿the list goes on and on. In fact, one might say women are ¿addicted to stress.¿ Which is exactly the idea behind Debbie Mandel¿s ingenious new book. In it, she likens a woman¿s tireless work to identity theft and points out the irony of calling a never-ending to-do list that we use to keep ourselves occupied every moment of every day ¿progress.¿ But there¿s good news - we¿re only 7 simple steps away from changing our lives. Mandel helps women understand that stress addiction is a real problem, recognize the signs, and take action to improve our health and better our lives. And she¿s got her work cut out for her after all, one of the major problems with stress addiction is that women today feel they need to keep busy in order to thrive. How often do you find yourself with free time, only to wonder what work or chores you could be getting done instead? Sure, we know we¿re busy, but we relish the purpose and sense of accomplishment, right? It turns out that stress may be affecting our lives in more ways than we realize, damaging our relationships, our family life, and even our health. Mandel¿s book is as interactive as it is informative, and it¿s absolutely a must read for anyone who experiences even a little stress in her daily life (which, let¿s face it, is pretty much everyone). With anecdotes from women you can relate to, questions and activities to really get you thinking about your own life, and advice to change everything from your diet and your house to your routine and your mindset, this book has the potential to really make a difference in your life. So enough with the excuses ¿ finding the time to read this book will mean finding the time to rediscover yourself.
