Overview

Stress is America’s #1 killer, aging people prematurely and compromising people’s health enormously. Culled from the pages of bestselling YOU: Staying Young, YOU: On a Diet, and YOU: Being Beautiful, this handy pocket guide that offers ninety-nine incredibly valuable tips to reverse the effects of stress is a must read.

There’s no question that stress can impact just about every part of your life—the way you look, how you feel, how long you live, how well you sleep, what you eat, everything. That’s why it is so important to have a good stress management plan in place, whether you’re used to juggling work, kids, gadgets, gizmos, or any of the hundreds of responsibilities that any of us have every day.

While there are three kinds of stress, you may not know that they aren’t all bad for you; some stress can actually work as a powerful motivator. The problem? When the wrong kinds of stress hammer you (and hammer you and hammer you), it can wear you down and cause lasting physical damage. YOU: Stress Less offers a 360-degree perspective on stress that combines the most up-to-date wisdom from the entire YOU: The Owner’s Manual series. Packed with meditation techniques, food recommendations, and lifestyle evaluation tools, this paperback is an essential guide to reducing your stress levels and improving your life—with some changes that you’ll feel immediately. This portable, comprehensive guide is a perfect investment in your health and your happiness.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Stress generates more stress: It can turn a job interview into a catastrophe; a sit-down with a significant other into a final breakup argument. To alleviate this all too common problem, bestselling author Michael J. Roizen presents anxious readers with a full arsenal of strategies, ranging from food guidelines and meditation techniques to lifestyle evaluation. YOU: Stress Less also provides you with the motivation you need to conquer unproductive stress, citing recent studies that link stress with cardiac issues, obesity, cancer, and reduced longevity. Think of it as an investment.

Stress Less, Live More

In a world where you have more information, more responsibilities, more electronic devices, and more ways to update your status, it’s no wonder that you also have more stress.

Why? Because in response to all of the increased demands on you, you search for more, too. You want more time, more money, more energy, more sleep, more IT support, more friends to follow, more reality shows to take your minds off the heavy stuff in your lives.

So what’s the result? You may end up on the wrong end of stress’s right hook. And it beats you up. Badly.

The truth is, many people actually misunderstand stress. Many believe that the secret to eliminating stress is, well, eliminating stress. While bubble baths and island living may be the answer for some, stress-elimination isn’t really the goal. You actually need stress—and many stresses are actually good for your health. The secret, then, is figuring out what’s good, what’s bad, and then using that information to minimize the destructive effects of certain stresses, so you can lead a healthy and happy life.

In this book, you’ll find seventy-five of our best “Stress Less” secrets culled from the research we did for several of our bestselling books in the YOU: The Owner’s Manual series. Within these pages, you’ll find some big-picture lessons that will help you redefine what stress is, and you’ll come across dozens of nuggets that will help you in a pinch—to sleep better, feel more energized, and be ready to embrace all of the wonderful things that life has to offer.

Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to do some meditation . . . “ommmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.”

Here’s to a healthy and happy YOU,
Michael F. Roizen, MD, and Mehmet C. Oz, MD
