A new resource, "The Mayo Clinic Guide to Stress-Free Living", by Amit Sood, M.D., a Mayo Clinic specialist in the science of stress management and resiliency, reveals how the mind affects our everyday lives. As a cancer survivor, it's more important than ever to find ways to manage stress and increase your emotional strength and resiliency.
The book is based on more than 10 years of research on how the mind-body connection can impact our daily lives. Dr. Sood explains how to train your brain to be mindful and find gratitude on a daily basis. He outlines how a few simple changes can make a difference. Some examples:
The concept behind Dr. Sood's strategies is to be mindful of your thoughts, sticking to positive ones and not letting your mind wander, which can create anxiety and needless worry over something you can't control. Making a few simple changes can help you be more balanced and engaged, which will help you let go of stress, find a sense of peace, and become more resilient.
The Mayo Clinic Guide to Stress-Free Living is available from the Mayo Clinic Store.

Is there a charge for the book when ordering? It sounds excellent. I am a two time cancer survivor, still in the fight and would benefit from this book.
Dr. Myra Wick suggested I get this book. Not only has it changed my life for the better, but I've gifted it to friends and family and it's made huge changes for them, too.
No need to suffer cancer to appreciate this book!
Randy, check in the Pharmacy area at Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale or in the patient library. They should be able to help you find a copy on site. Angela, so glad you are enjoying the book!
