Divided into three parts, the book is designed to help you develop new habits, attitudes, and responses which will improve your ability to cope with the pressures of daily living.

In PART I you'll learn about the nature of stress and the stress-response, how your mind and body react to stress, and the psychosomatic theory of disease.

PART II, which includes 9 self-assessment exercises in questionnaire form, will help you develop a personal "Stress Profile" as an accurate means of pinpointing what stresses you and how stress affects you.

PART III gives detailed instructions on how to create your own "Stress Management System" - a combination of relaxation techniques, exercise, diet, and other skills that reduce and prevent stress and tension.

No matter what you find stressful - traffic jams, job pressures, or your home and social life - Controlling Stress & Tension can help you with practical skills and advice for dealing with everyday tensions.
