Stress Relief feeling just out of reach?
Stress relief can be elusive. With stress and anxiety so common, many people worry too much and wish the stress relief tips they’ve tried would work better. But while there is plenty of real, external stress, there is also what we do on the inside with stress, often without noticing it. Conscious Calm: Keys to Freedom from Stress and Worry reveals the internal world of stress and lasting stress management. This practical book describes the internal stress traps you can fall into without even knowing it, and shows you how to get free from those traps for good. Combining psychology and wisdom from both East and West in clear, accessible language, psychologist Dr. Laura Maciuika describes 9 Stress Secrets that keep you stuck in stress and worry cycles, and reveals 9 Keys to Conscious Calm, with simple steps for lasting, natural stress relief. In Conscious Calm you will discover:

Stress and anxiety relief techniques that last
Stress relief exercises that start from the inside
Stress management strategies you can begin using right away to feel greater calm and control
Quick stress relief ideas at the end of every chapter

This book also includes a free, downloadable Action Steps guide to help you transform stress and worry into greater calm, inner peace and happiness.

"Conscious Calm is like the handbook to the brain, body and emotions no one gets when they 'grow up'. I wish I had this book when I turned 13. I am sure that I will continue to go back to it for years to come."
Sheela Bringi, musician.
