Less Stress in Thirty Days

Roggenbuck Peggy Gillespie, Author, Peggy Roggenbuck Gillespie, Author Plume Books $6.95 (157p) ISBN 978-0-452-25829-7
Written by two stress-management experts at the University of Massachusetts, this concise guide shows that even the busiest person can become less tense. After describing stress and its effects, the authors give anecdotal accounts of clients' problems. They demonstrate that drugs, alcohol and junk foods are mere palliatives and do not cure the root causes of tension. They recommend that people learn their ""stress buttons'' and concentrate on remaining relaxed in stressful situations. Suggestions are given for setting realistic ``less stress'' goals. Helpful sections at the end include reading lists, sources for relaxation tapes and workshops. (August)
