Master Stress: Tame Your Inner Monster (My Guide) by Rebecca Richmond is a comprehensive, all-in-one guide for a calmer, more peaceful, stress-free life. This book includes literally hundreds of tips and techniques to soothe your inner self and reduce stress in your life. Master Stress: Tame Your Inner Monster is neatly divided into chapters on all aspects of life, including work, study, relationships, finances, sleep, diet, and exercise. Each of these areas is carefully discussed and Rebecca Richmond provides several exercises throughout the book to reduce or eliminate stress, accompanied by simple, practical suggestions for better life management. The book also covers aspects of self-awareness and personal development, and helps readers to understand that working on the internal aspects such as one’s health and self-esteem is just as important as, or even more important than managing the external aspects such as work and finances.
I have read many books on the subject of stress and self-improvement, and I found that this is definitely one of the better books in this genre. I found it to be all-encompassing because every subject related to life and stress was discussed in a very pleasant, easy-to-understand way. I also loved the various techniques described in the book such as breathing exercises, meditation, the concept of mindfulness, etc. that I felt were so simple to do and practice. I would highly recommend this book to everyone. In the fast-paced world we usually live in, I believe everyone can benefit from a more peaceful way of life, and this book may provide some guidance in the right direction.
