Success With Stress – Book Review & Giveaway

Success With Stress

Success With Stress by Jae Ellard – Book Review

Are you interested in taking a personal look at stress and learning more about what causes stress in your life and how you can overcome it?

Would you find it useful to have a book that provides basic information about what stress is and how it impacts your body in a user-friendly format?

If so, then Success With Stress by Jae Ellard is the perfect companion to accompany you through a season of improving your health!

Like Jae’s previous book, The Five Truths About Work-Life Balance, Success With Stress is a slim paperback that’s easy-to-read yet full of important truths that can profoundly change your life. Inside, you’ll find personal questions that help you identify exactly what stress looks like in your life, as well as plenty of space to record insights about how you can overcome the stressors in your life!

Success With Stress identifies stress and the impact it has on our lives, then recommends five strategies we can use to reduce stress in our lives. As Jae presents each strategy and invites us to explore the possibility of employing it in our lives, she reminds us, as always, that “the choice is ours”.

Sometimes, when I’m feeling stressed and overwhelmed, I’m hesitant to add another book to my list of things to read – no matter how good it sounds – because it feels like adding anything will cause me more stress! If that’s the case with you, let me assure you that Success With Stress is not your typical book – on many pages you will often just find a single sentence to ponder – so this extremely easy book to read and flip through is particularly written with overburdened and overtaxed people in mind!

I invite you to pick up your copy today – or to enter the Giveaway for a chance to win!

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
