Less Stress Life by Jamie Sussel Turner (Paperback)
Jamie Sussel Turner's Less Stress Life buoyantly reminds us we are not powerless in the face of life's most crushing pressures and distractions. Exploding all the myths on stoic multi-tasking, on the one hand, and sheer avoidance, on the other, Jamie invites readers to spot their stressors and chart a new course toward personal effectiveness. Her roadmap is the truest navigation, forged in the crucible of a dire cancer diagnosis and a journey toward healing and self discovery. This book is informed by a survivor's wisdom, with loads of practical suggestions and a joyful embrace of life's great promise for the focused mind and the open heart.

At a time when self-help books are abundant and social media memes tell us to breathe, be grateful, and stress less, the idea of better managing stress feels terribly stressful. But that's not true for Less Stress Life, which provides tangible, intentional, and doable strategies for decreasing stress along with stories that help readers gain new perspectives. It provokes the right questions for us to acknowledge, evaluate, and respond to stress. The practice of SURFing serves both as a mantra and a tool, which has helped me pause, assess, press play, and ride the stress wave while being in control of my responses. Less Stress Life is a powerful resource in a world that can easily feel like it is spiraling or at times against us.

Jamie has put together a thoughtful and real-world collection of practices that are genuine stress-busters. Drawn from her experience as a mom, cancer survivor, educator, and coach, she has skillfully created a highly readable and accessible book on managing stress. I wish I had this book years ago--but I am glad to have it as a resource now. A modern gem!
