Ten Minutes to Learn One Minute to Practice Ten Seconds to Work

Imagine if you could . . .

  • Radically reduce stress
  • Increase your physical vitality
  • Improve your quality of life

Now you can. We live in an age of stress. Each day at work and at home as we struggle to take care of the basics, constant stress significantly affects our ability to lead healthy and happy lives. We struggle with stomach pain, headaches, mood swings, fatigue, depression, high blood pressure, and even heart failure. Not only does stress damage our physical and emotional well-being, but our relationships and productivity suffer as well. What, if anything, can we do to stop this cycle?

There is a multitude of books, magazine features, TV programs, videotapes, meditation classes, and seminars, all aimed at stopping stress. But until now there has never been a scientifically based program that not only starts working within seconds but also creates a foundation to help remove stress and the symptoms associated with it from your life for good.

Dr. Fred Luskin and Dr. Kenneth R. Pelletier spent years at the Stanford University School of Medicine developing ten proven skills for eliminating the stress, anxiety, and pain that occur in daily life. Delivering skills that have been honed and tested among a diverse group of Americans, Stress Free for Good is easy to use and starts working immediately. Offering more than just the promise of breaking even and eliminating daily stress, these ten skills provide a foundation for living a healthier and happier life. This is not only a practical and accessible guide to conquering the stress in our lives once and for all, it is also the last stress aid you will ever need.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Properly tuned, our nervous systems support our dreams and objectives, say mind/body experts Luskin (Forgive for Good) and Pelletier (Mind as Healer, Mind as Slayer). Here, they attempt to provide a new game plan for optimizing health, well-being, and performance. Unfortunately, their "10 scientifically proven LifeSkills" are nothing more than a rehash of what's been around since the 1980s: deep breathing, positive imagery, slowing down to pay attention, and just saying no are some of the exercises prescribed. The two chapters on appreciation should have been combined to hold the reader's interest better. To their credit, the authors emphasize an easily overlooked point-that daily practice of the techniques is crucial to overcoming poor emotional habits. And the section on long-term Type 2 stress is valid for its mention of the illness that can result when we don't attend to ourselves. An optional purchase for larger public libraries with a demonstrated interest in stress management.-Lisa Liquori, Syracuse, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
