Ease into Freedom: Keys for Reducing Stress and Unlocking Your Potential


Ease into Freedom: Keys for Reducing Stress and Unlocking Your Potential offers 53 concrete, easy-to-implement tips for handling stress skillfully. From breathing practices to managing time to applying mindfulness in various aspects of life, the author—William A. Frey, who has studied stress management since the 1970s—provides one new tip per week, plus a bonus tip, to keep you going all year long.

Each tip is brief and is accompanied by a practice guide that not only helps you utilize the prescribed advice but also encourages you to explore the efficacy of each tip and how it does (or doesn’t) work for you over the course of a week.

Anytime is a good time to begin taking small steps to alleviate suffering from stress. Ease into Freedom is an exceptional, user-friendly start to unlocking your inherent potential for feeling and living better.
