Manage Your Stress
A Practical Approach
Dr. Uchenna Egodi Ajake (nee Agba)
The natural role of the present day man is anxiety. The story of stress is as old as humanity. Life itself centers on stress and how to conquer it. The word stress cuts across all disciplines. In physics and engineering it connotes load, in biology it produces elasticity, in physiology stress could be positive or negative producing abnormal limit (higher or lower) from the normal and in pathology it could lead to organ failure.
In view of the numerous consequences of stress which could lead to diseases and emotional or mental disorders makes this book “manage your stress: a practical approach” a must read material. There is therefore a crucial need to enlighten and educate everyone with this basic, simple to read and practical approach to managing stress. It should be noted that everyone encounters stress but the response to stress varies from person to person and from occupation to occupation.
The author as an educationist has taken steps to elaborate on basic issues in stress and how to manage it. Most exciting to me are the quotations concerning stress and the nutritional value of common foods and drinks on stress. Finally, am compelled to accept that this book is resourceful, with a wide appeal, easy to read and also acceptable to most strata of the society. I strongly recommend this book to the young and old, professionals and non-professionals, academicians and non-academicians, and to the benefit of mankind.
