    Definitely recommend

    I enjoyed this book very much and recommend it to all writers and anyone who spends hours sitting in front of a computer. There are exercises you can do at your desk, breathing exercises, Yoga, aromatherapy, ideas for mental stress and physical tension, and my favorite, section IV--Exploring Other Attractions, which includes three categories: active, meditative and sensual artistic. Loved it!
