WHY THIS BOOK ABOUT STRESS?
From the back of the book:
If you are worried about whether you have stress, it can be an additional stressor to start reading about it - but all the terrible stuff is not included in this book.
This book about stress is a little eye-opener that almost freely massages new thought patterns and habits into the everyday life that whips by, whether you feel like you can keep up or not.
The book is based on the third wave of cognitive behavioral therapy, which includes Compassion Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). The core philosophy is mainly influenced by Jon Kabat-Zinn and Paul Gilbert.
In the book, evidence-based theories are translated into drawings and imagery, spiced with quotes that can be actively used starting from today.
The book about stress is intended for everyone - high or low, young or old - who might want to optimize their everyday life and avoid becoming the frog in the pot. There are no tasks in the book; everything is offered, and you can start wherever you want.
