Jackie Ferguson identifies three especially vulnerable groups: those living with chronic stress, those living the runaway American lifestyle, and those with personalities prone to anger, hostility, and impatience. Then, in clear, easy-to-follow layman’s terms she outlines a way to release the flight/fight energy produced in our twenty-first century living. Rarely are we presented with a raging lion or a spear-wielding enemy about to turn us into rotisserie fare, but the same chemicals that provided our ancestors with the ability to escape from physical threats are threatening to kill us. In Let Your Body Win: Stress Management Plain and Simple Jackie turns us away from our Stress Cliffs to Stress Breaks that will lead to a happy, healthy future where we can manage our stress.
