Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Have you ever driven several miles without noticing anything on the road, or read a page in a book without registering any of it? Do the day's worries and disappointments crowd your mind as you're trying to fall asleep at night? Do you feel stressed much of the time and aren't sure how to find peace? In this book, Amit Sood, M.D., M.Sc., a Mayo Clinic specialist in stress and resiliency, reveals how the mind's instinctive restlessness and shortsightedness generate stress and anxiety and presents strategies for living a more peaceful life. The book is based on the highly popular stress management program offered at Mayo Clinic that Dr. Sood developed after two decades of work with tens of thousands of people.
Drawing on groundbreaking brain research, Dr. Sood helps you understand the brain's two modes and how an imbalance between them produces unwanted stress. From this basis, you learn skills that will help you:
Develop deep and sustained attention Practice gratitude, compassion and acceptance Live a meaningful life Cultivate nurturing relationships Achieve your highest potential
All of these concepts are weaved into a practical and fun journey that has been tested in numerous scientific studies, with consistently positive results. Take the first step to discover greater peace and joy for you and your loved ones.
"Dr. Sood has put together a simple, secular and structured program that is anchored in science, is free of rituals and dogmas, and is accessible to everyone. This book can change your life." -- DR. ANDREW WEIL
"An important innovative approach to well-being, one we all should know about." -- DR. DANIEL GOLEMAN

Book description

Mayo clinic’s popular health books cover topics from pregnancy and diabetes to cancer and alternative medicine. This is the Mayo Clinic’s first book focusing on the urgent health issue of stress. Dr. Amit Sood is a Mayo Clinic specialist in stress relief and resiliency training, and this book captures the successful stress-management program he developed after two decades of work with tens of thousands of patients. The program treats approximately 15,000 people each year.

Dr. Sood’s program has two essential steps: the Basics and the Skills. In the Basics, readers come to understand the workings of the brain and what generates stress. Dr. Sood reveals insights about the mind’s instinctive restlessness and short-sightedness that further increase stress and anxiety. The next step is the Skills, where readers learn how to enhance awareness, develop focus, and experience the present moment with greater joy. The result is lower stress. The concepts are integrated into a practical approach tested in numerous scientific studies at Mayo Clinic and elsewhere, with consistently positive results.
