    How long has it been since you updated your toolkit for stress management? There’s more to it than mindfulness, spending time outdoors, and eating and sleeping well. Don’t get us wrong, those time-tested techniques can be effective at reducing stress. But maybe you’re feeling ready to freshen up your approach to stress management and learn targeted techniques for dealing with different varieties of stress. If so, this article will introduce you to a range of helpful new concepts, like Energy Management, Worry Scheduling, and the Ten-Percenters. 

    Here's the TL;DR version of this Blinkist article

    Stress is complex. Yet, reading the literature on stress management, you might come away with the belief that all forms of stress can be easily treated through simple meditation, exercise, and deep breathing. 

    The truth is, if you want to master stress management, you need to learn more about how stress operates. And you need a well-honed repertoire of strategies for combating it. 

    Fine-tune your understanding of stress through learning to identify microstress, and understanding where you fall on the spectrum proposed by the Yerkes-Dodson Law.

    Then, acquire some targeted strategies for troubleshooting stress – like Energy Management and Worry Scheduling.

    Great app. Good selection of book summaries you can read or listen to while commuting. Instead of scrolling through your social media news feed, this is a much better way to spend your spare time in my opinion.
