Description

DISCOVER SIMPLE, SCIENCE-BASED STRATEGIES FOR BEATING STRESS AT ITS OWN GAME.

When's the best time to exercise - and how much is too much? Which foods fortify the brain, and which do the opposite? How can we use music, movement and motivation to boost our rational brain and keep our cool no matter what life throws our way?

This practical and ground-breaking guide reveals seven paths to fighting the effects of stress to strengthen our natural defences so that our minds remain sharp, and our bodies resilient, no matter the circumstances. Each chapter examines a common stress agent - including inflammation, an out-of-sync body clock, cortisol levels and emotional triggers, and presents simple ways to minimise its harmful effects, for example, by changing your diet, exercising and other simple habits.

Translating cutting-edge scientific findings into clear and simple advice, Stress-Proof is the ultimate user's guide for body, mind and wellbeing.

About Mithu Storoni

As Mithu Storoni became a doctor, dabbled in neuroscientific research, trained in ophthalmic surgery, taught yoga, and earned a PhD in neuro-ophthalmology, she studied "illness" through different angles, all of which led to the brain. The deeper she ventured into the study of "illness" the more aware she became of the vital role played by chronic stress in the transformation from "wellness" to "illness." Moving from fast-paced London to the breakneck Asian business hub of Hong Kong heightened this awareness as Mithu watched her thriving friends and colleagues reluctantly abandon their passion, energy, and mental agility and surrender their flourishing careers, because of chronic, unbridled stress. This prompted Mithu to write this book. Mithu received her medical degree from the University of Cambridge and conducted her research in neuro-ophthalmology at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London, where she was a Clinical Research Fellow until moving to Hong Kong with her husband. They now live in Luxembourg.
