We hope you’re having a great start to the new year. One of our commitments for this coming year is to have more spaciousness and ease. While we can’t rid ourselves of stress completely, we can control how we approach it. In New York Times bestselling author Dr. Elissa Epel’s brand new book, The Stress Prescription: Seven Days to More Joy and Ease, she shows us how we can make friends with stress and and actually learn to use it our advantage.

The Stress Prescription distills decades of Dr. Epel’s research on stress into a practical and transformative seven-day plan of science-based techniques designed to help you find more relaxation and ease every day. This book is the latest of Dr. Epel’s pioneering work on stress and telomeres and her longstanding mission to help people to “stress better”—by training our minds and bodies to shift towards a beneficial stress response that can actually enhance our health
