Empowerment, Inspirational, Spirituality
Charles Linden's Stress-Free in 30 Days offers simple, fast and targeted guidance to show readers how to quickly and permanently eliminate stress from their lives, regardless of its cause. As an added bonus the book is accompanied by a mixed-media CD containing audio files and links to resources, all of which will help speed up your recovery.
Whether your stress is work or home related, this book will introduce techniques to reduce your symptoms, and provides tips to see you through the challenging times. Charles Linden's Stress-Free in 30 Days programme is presented here in the most simple, structured, accessible and informative form for people of all ages.
The book introduced me to Charles Linden, the creator of "The Linden Method", a Anxiety Recovery Program that is widely considered to be the most successful, curative anxiety-elimination program available. From his own experiences with anxiety, he developed a method of eliminating stress from his life, and adapted it to use as a self help program. The book comes with an audio CD which contains visualizations for deep relaxation, confidence, and sleep. Using this CD in conjunction with the book will help speed up your progress and recovery.
The book is broken into chapters that are based on a 30 day "topic-a-day" approach. You learn what stress is, and how it affects us on all levels. The chapters deal with elements of our lives that affect our stress and anxiety levels: Diet, Alcohol, Exercise, Panic Attacks, Sleep and Insomnia, Money and Stress, Relationships, Avoiding Confrontation, Goal Setting, Confidence, Conscious Choices, for example. Each day's chapter is packed with discussion of the topic, and practical, useable information for making immediate changes for the better. Each chapter ends with "Foundations for Stress Free Living", a "to do" list of specific things to try, actions to take that day that are fast, targeted guidance to get you moving towards healing.
The CD is a great bonus tool; I found it to be a welcome relaxation method which helped me embrace the changes and steps I was working with in the book itself. This combination of book and CD helps the material to become incorporated into your understanding and daily practice. I highly recommend this book as a very worthwhile read, and a good self-help resource.
