One of my colleagues keeps it on her desk, and reads me a passage as inspiration for the day. It is an excellent read and will inspire. Great gift for colleagues.”

“Much more than a self-help book – this is a guide to managing the stressors of daily life. Like many professionals, I work a full time job and strive to balance this with family and personal responsibilities. I have found the lessons in this book to be incredibly useful, and I’m glad to understand the research behind the techniques. I have taken a mindfulness-based stress reduction course, and honestly, this book has offered more useful strategies than the 6 week course. I am so grateful to Drs. Gionta and Guerra for this gem!”

“I had really never considered offering a stress management workshop until a colleague noted how much stress people seemed to have and suggested I create a program. In doing so, I purchased a copy of “From Stressed to Centered.” I read it, loved it, and have been recommending it both in programs I deliver and when people share that they are experiencing stress. Readers are able to assess their current levels of stress and more importantly, the authors offer straightforward, practical, and diverse strategies for managing/decreasing stress.”
