Summary

Discover simple, science-based strategies for beating stress at its own game. 

When's the best time to exercise - and how much is too much? Which foods fortify the brain, and which do the opposite? How can we use music, movement and motivation to boost our rational brain and keep our cool no matter what life throws our way? 

This practical and groundbreaking guide reveals seven paths to fighting the effects of stress to strengthen our natural defences so that our minds remain sharp, and our bodies resilient, no matter the circumstances. Each chapter examines a common stress agent - including inflammation, an out-of-sync body clock, cortisol levels and emotional triggers and presents simple ways to minimise its harmful effects, for example, by changing your diet, exercising and other simple habits.  

Translating cutting-edge scientific findings into clear and simple advice, Stress-Proof is the ultimate user's guide for body, mind and well-being.

Poor narration

Maybe its better to read the book, however the narrator reads like a robot. Very difficult to listen to.

Great book, terrible narration!

What a shame this is read so badly. Makes it very hard to listen to. I may have to buy and read it again :(

Perhaps think about redoing it with another more engaging narrator.
