Experiencing short bursts of stress is an inevitable aspect of life in the 21st century. Emerging research is uncovering a delicate balance between two aspects of the brain that decides if a short stressful episode will turn into a systemic overload, eventually leading to inflammation, anxiety, depression, and other chronic health issues. This practical and groundbreaking guide reveals what happens in our brains and bodies when stress gets out of control-and what we can do to strengthen our natural defenses so that our minds remain sharp, clear, and resilient, no matter what life throws at us.Each chapter examines a stress agent-including inflammation, an out-of-sync body clock, cortisol, and emotional triggers-and presents simple ways to minimize effects with everyday changes in diet, lifestyle, behavior and exercise, The book tells you how to plan for a bad day, an afternoon slump, a stressful encounter, a bout of insomnia or jetlag, and other stress triggers with everyday changes in diet, lifestyle, behavior, and exercise, and includes surprising strategies involving music, eye movements, body temperature, and more. Translating complex scientific findings into straightforward and actionable advice, Stress-Proof is a game-changing book that moves our understanding-and wellness-forward in a meaningful way.

Excellent ! While one might need degrees in biochemistry and neurology to understand the extensive research on which Storoni bases her recommendations, she does a superb job of presenting the ideas in simple, practical and doable form. Very helpful, and as she says on the last line "If you can't do everything, do what you can". (I just couldn't help feeling sorry for all the mice that suffered in order to prove the theories.)
