Description


After years of incessant worrying, and trying all the commonly recommended remedies for stress relief and anxiety, author, Ilene Angel found herself frustrated. She took three deep breaths, lit a candle, and tried yoga. Nothing worked.

“What would I need to believe to be calmer and happier?” Angel asked herself.

“What would I need to let go of to get there?”

Most of us think our stress is the result of external circumstances, but Angel says, “If you fundamentally believe the world is a horrible place, then no amount of Xanax will make you calm or happy.”

Angel’s series of guiding questions sprinkled throughout the book are a stress game-changer, allowing readers to address the underlying causes of their stress, instead of merely treating the symptoms.

The result is a first of its kind survival guide that delivers life-changing concepts deftly intertwined with humor, in a book that is to the point, impactful, and funny.
