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?

Short bursts of stress are an inevitable part of modern life. But how much is too much? Research is uncovering the delicate balance that can turn a brief stressful episode into systemic overload, eventually leading to inflammation, anxiety, depression, and other chronic health issues.

This practical and groundbreaking guide reveals seven paths to fighting the effects of stress--to strengthen our natural defenses so that our minds remain sharp, and our bodies resilient, no matter what life throws at us.

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 minimize its harmful effects with changes in diet, exercise, and other daily habits-including surprising hacks involving music, eye movements, body temperature, daily routine, and more.

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