Read Unwind!: 7 Principles for a Stress-Free Life Online Free - This book by Michael Olpin, a top-notch stress expert, and Sam Bracken, a no-longer-stressed-out writer, stands out from other books on stress management in one significant way: its “whole-person” approach. Unwind! is about optimizing your body, heart, mind, and soul, recognizing that any and all of these dimensions of your life affect your anxiety level. It helps you get clear about who you are as well as your priorities and goals. The authors show you how to take charge of your life and how to make better choices that will prevent stress in the first place.
The authors explore seven key paradigm shifts, from reactive to proactive; unmotivated to inspired; pressured to prioritized; hassled to harmonious; anxious to empathic; defensive to diverse; and tense to tranquil. Delving deep into each of these paradigm shifts, readers learn how to prevent most of the daily stresses people typically experience, by getting at the roots of stressors.

I don't know if it was the tone of the narrator or the voice of the author, but honestly it made me feel that my anxiety and my depression were just the result of my poor ability to make better decisions about my life. It didn't help at all. Just mad...
