)-- Physical Therapist Provides Mental Exercise Techniques to Reduce Stress.
Book Instructs on How to Refocus Thinking Processes for a Less-Stressful Life.
Giving up stress for her fortieth birthday was the best thing she ever did. After observing how stress impacted her patients’ physical health—manifested as back pain, neck pain and muscle spasm—as well as depriving her own body of quality sleep, physical therapist Leslie Torburn was determined to not allow stress to rule her life anymore. Torburn began managing her thoughts and changing her perceptions, and compiled her techniques into a quick, easy-to-read manual, Stop the Stress Habit.
Stop the Stress Habit provides innovative concepts and practice exercises that teach readers how to shift the habitual thought processes or constant "mind chatter" in order to reduce stress and lead healthier lives. Dr. Torburn also includes practical examples and several real-life stories that help illustrate specific instances of how stress impacts a person's life and how that person reacted to the stress. Specifically, Torburn guides readers through:
Behavioral and physical reactions to stress
Changing perceptions from the past to the present
Visualizing future opportunities
Dealing with everyday stress and stopping the worrying habit
Written with the active, time-conscience person in mind, Stop the Stress Habit is a concise, quick-read enabling readers to easily incorporate the techniques into their daily lives. There is no need to find additional time throughout the day to utilize Torburn’s concepts: it simply requires a change of perceptions and thought patterns.
“After years of observing the behavior of my patients and their reactions to life events, it became clear to me that stress is indeed in the eyes of the beholder and is an important factor in determining our level of health,” states Torburn. “Stop the Stress Habit is the result of my own experience in managing my response to stress and of observing other people’s stressful reactions to events.”
Although challenging situations will continue to arise, Stop the Stress Habit instructs readers on how to deal with them by training the stress reaction. Torburn proves that it is possible to turn seemingly negative situations into opportunities for learning, thus creating a more peaceful and less-stressful life.
