Both authors are psychologists who share their personal stories and experiences. They describe their paths to self-care, whether it was initiated as a stress reducer or a coping mechanism for dealing with trauma. Gionta and Guerra provide a step-by-step guide to help readers practice good stress management and self-care which will generate long term health and well-being.
The book includes a questionnaire to help readers evaluate their stressors and determine their stress levels. Determining an individual’s stress level, and how it shows up in one’s life, is valuable knowledge. The decisions we make every day, consciously or unconsciously, can be evaluated and acted upon, leading to a balanced and harmonious life.
Using their process, goals can be set as well as identifying actions such as breathing exercises and relaxation techniques to eliminate or reduce stress.
