This book includes a revealing scale indicating the stress caused by various life changes and lists of behavioral, physical, and emotional signs of stress. Behavioral methods to address stress include: relaxation techniques, time management, speaking and listening skills, exercise, and diet; another way to relieve stress is to change thought patterns by avoiding distorted thinking, worry, negative thoughts, and anger.
