And what woman hasn’t felt stressed at one point or another in life? With all the different roles we play: wife, mother, daughter, friend, employee, sister, etc. it’s no wonder we sometimes find ourselves a little worse for the wear.
Addicted to Stress: A Woman’s 7-Step Program to Reclaim Joy and Spontaneity in Life by Debbie Mandel is the perfect solution to helping women take a step back and re-examine life. It’s a step-by-step guide which teaches “self-empowerment, excercise and self-care, healthy narcissism, renewing sensuality, and the role of humor in woman’s relationships.”
For me, the hardest part was taking a hard look at my life and identifying that I needed help. I’m known for always taking on too much responsibility and usually run myself ragged trying to keep up with all the deadlines. And who suffers for it? My family. Well, no more.
My favorite chapter is “Cultivate Your Sense of Fun and Humor”. My main problem is taking things to seriously. This chapter talks about experiencing situations from your inner child and seeing the humor in things you may not have otherwise thought funny. If I can just learn to relax and take things more lightly, I know it would make a big difference on my daily stress level.
This book has come at a great time in my life since we’re currently dealing with a stressful family situation. I have really enjoyed the no-nonsense and practical advice given by Mandel and I know it could be a valuable resource tool for you, too.
