Nothing new here. If you've read anything on mindfulness, meditation, or cultivating a stress free life, you've heard this all before. On the other hand, if you haven't read anything, this is an easy read with workbook type steps you can practice with. Dr. Covey's "7 Principles" is heavily quoted, and the authors make it plain at the outset that this book is directly based on his work. The front cover seems to indicate some sort of connection between Covey and this work beyond mere inspiration and admiration - is there a FranklinCovey method with a series of books?? Finally, I have to say that I've never come across a Forward wherein the writer promotes himself and his books so blatantly. It was a turnoff. ( )

Unwind is about optimizing your body, heart, mind, and soul, recognizing that any and all of these dimensions of your life affect your anxiety level. It helps you get clear about who you are as well as your priorities and goals. The authors show you how to take charge of your life and how to make better choices that will prevent stress in the first place. The authors explore seven key paradigm shifts, from reactive to proactive; unmotivated to inspired; pressured to prioritized; hassled to harmonious; anxious to empathic; defensive to diverse; and tense to tranquil. Delving deep into each of these paradigm shifts, readers learn how to prevent most of the daily stresses people typically experience, by getting at the roots of stressors.… (more)
