Preface

Preface

During the past decade considerable attention has been devoted to the importance of good physical health. The result has been impressive. Large numbers of people now exercise regularly, watch their diets and take other preventative health measures.

This book was developed to focus similar attention on the topic of managing stress to maintain good mental health. Many of the principles presented in this brief book can be developed and practiced like a thoughtful exercise program or diet.

The pressures of life are many. It is important to remember that everyone experiences some stress. Stress is normal and, properly managed, can be useful. This book will focus on finding the level of stress that may be useful for you, and teach you ways to recognize and avoid stress beyond that level. Other topics will help you understand the basic ingredients of good mental health, improve self-awareness and self-image, and clarify the link between physical wellness and emotional wellness.

One reading will simply point you in the right direction. Completing the various exercises and activities can be a significant step toward self-awareness and growth in the challenging arena of your emotional health.

Good luck!
