Undoing Perpetual Stress: The Missing Connection Between Depression, Anxiety and 21st Century Illness (Paperback)
by Richard O'Connor

Product description:

In this groundbreaking book, psychotherapist Richard O'Connor explains how a wide range of ever-more-common problems-both emotional and physical-are in fact side effects of 21st-century life. When our fight-or-flight response is stuck in the "on" position, the over-stimulation and complex demands of the modern world can have severe long-term effects on health and well-being, sometimes in ways people don't even recognize until it's too late.

Combining expert authority with down-to-earth language, Undoing Perpetual Stress reveals how to put an end to this mode of existence, replacing anxious responses with a new and more effective set of skills. Readers will learn how to:

- Regain a measure of control over their environments
- Cope with stressors calmly and constructively
- Make health and happiness a daily priority
