A Remarkably Impactful Book Dec 19, 2006
I first read an earlier edition of Stress? Find Your Balance by Allan Press and Lynn Osterkamp in 1994. This book had a profound effect on my life.
In the midst of the fast-paced lives we lead, learning more about the importance of relaxation and making pragmatic application of the book's techniques made a huge difference in my experience of life. Not only did I feel much better but found that through the use of relaxation, visual imagery, and meditation, I had conditioned myself to better manage stressful situations. In situations, such as driving to work in heavy traffic, where I previously would have become stressed out and set a negative tone for the day, I learned to call upon the mindfulness meditation called slowing down and waiting. Although I tried to eat right and exercise, this book was the impetus to make these practices an ingrained part of my life. I found I not only had more endurance and energy but was much more creative and enjoyed more zest for life. I had become a resilient person.
In addition to the above benefits, the coping skills have been of immeasurable value. Among the other skills, Looking At the World Differently became a mainstay.
At the time I first read Stress? Find Your Balance, I owned a retail business, which contained a small section of reading materials. I was so enthused about the book and the difference I experienced personally that I asked the authors if I could sell the book and accompanying tape. The books and tapes were among my best sellers. Customers returned to discuss the book and describe the difference it made in their lives. They purchased copies for friends and relatives.
Some 12 years and 50,000 copies later, Stress? Find Your Balance by Allan Press and Lynn Osterkamp has been revised and updated. Having read the new edition I find that I am still relying upon the precepts of this book and will continue to refer back to it at times as a refresher. I still use the same mantra.
I cannot recommend this book strongly enough to readers.
Sincerely, Sharon T. Barfield
Required Reading for Life Dec 4, 2006
Stress? Find Your Balance. This book was required reading for a class I enrolled in. However, I recommend this text as required reading for life. It is a clear and clean collection of tasks. The tasks (for example, Deep Muscle Relaxation, giving up being right, being good to yourself) allow you to incrementally change the aspects of your life that cause you stress. What I appreciate so much about Press is that he reminds us that WE create most of our stressors (by choices and outlook), yet we can also get rid of our stressors. This guide is a keeper.
