Practical Guide to Easing Tension and Conquering Stress

Learn to Relax - A Practical Guide to Easing Tension and Conquering Stress by Mike George We all have stress to varying degrees. As Mike George points out, all stress feels the same to our bodies, and can cause serious health problems such as depression and illness -- even death if the stress is prolonged.

If you have stress in your life that feels overwhelming at times, this might just be the book for you. The advice given is solid, and can be used in myriad situations -- giving you a tool that is worth the cover price.

Learn To Relax is all about lessening that stress so that you can raise your mood and ease your tension.

This book is different from all relaxation books. It's easy to notice that the author has experienced everything he teaches, making it very practical, yet comprehensive. The text is focused, clear and objective, so that you can easily work on the causes of your stress, anxiety, fear or unhappiness. It's impressive!!!

Mike George has created a book that both educates and entertains, with hand-painted images that follow along with the text, illustrating without distracting. The entire book is in a cool, bold palette, selected for its ability to relax through the use of color.

Techniques in this book vary from good to great, depending on the time and energy you wish to spend. Most of the text is practical and easy to use, but calm and friendly.

The book is separated into several main categories, with smaller essays below each one. There are also 25 interactive exercises for the stressed readers to pick and choose from -- each is independent from the others.

The categories include:

The Roads to Relaxation, with what stress is and how it affects you; Stillness, Breath, and Calm, about how to meditate and add sensual enhancement to your life; The Body at Rest and in Motion, about the connection between exercise and elevated mood; The Self and Relationships, which details both our personal power and our interpersonal relationships, including a section on sex that should be required reading; and finally, Mind Power, about mindfulness and thought.

The suggestions are often informed by ideas from eastern medicine and philosophy such as the flowing energy, with recommendations of meditation, massage, yoga, and breathing exercises. It even suggests that acts of kindness to others can be relaxing. There are also many other suggestions that make plenty of sense, such as learning to communicate with one's partner, guided imagery, and getting enough sleep.

Each of the chapters could be a book in and of itself, and collected, they create a powerful tool for getting a handle on both your inner and outer life.

Mike George leads you on a stress discovery for your whole person. A great gift idea for any occasion and anybody. Learn to make a difference for yourself on an every day basis.
