Learning how to handle stress, develop time management skills, care for your body, and navigate relationships - these are arguably some of the most important tools to have in order to survive and thrive in the world today. This textbook is filled with self-reflection and self-awareness exercises, activities, and hands-on techniques that students can use immediately, and for the rest of their lives. It takes a proactive approach to stress management and prevention, built upon a foundation in both Western and Eastern views of stress and the techniques used to manage and prevent its impact. The book is informed by the most recent theory and research from medicine, health science, and both the social and behavioral sciences. The accessible writing style, combined with vivid illustrations from the authors' own lives and examples from popular culture, makes rigorous academic material easy to understand and will help readers to see the value in taking steps to incorporate these principles into their lives.
