Suzannah Olivier: Stress Protection Plan

Ok, I knew it was bound to happen sooner or later. I just spent an hour writing a lovely review of Suzannah Olivier's Stress Protection Plan: Everyday Ways to Beat Stress and Enjoy Life, I didn't save the draft periodically as I usually do, and with one lightning-quick mistype, I managed to erase the whole thing! So in the spirit of stress-reduction, I am not going to try to recreate the review. Here is a brief sum-up:

  • Used copies of the book are available on Amazon for 1 cent (a good deal)

  • It contains helpful tips not only on how to eliminate stress, but more importantly, how to eat foods that will help to energize you

  • Especially helpful are Ms. Olivier's Weekend Plans...a few lifestyle changes for even one weekend can help you relax and de-stress

  • Eat breakfast (with protein)

  • Put 2-3 drops of lemongrass essential oil (available at your natural foods store) in your bath to refresh & energize

  • Eat yogurt

  • 5-10 minutes spent cleaning up clutter can have a huge psychological benefit

  • The book is British, so she does tell you to eat sardines & watercress & a few other odd things that I ignored

  • Visit Suzannah Olivier's website for more de-stress tips

  • Suzannah Olivier also wrote The Breast Cancer Prevention and Recovery Diet and Healthy Food for Happy Kids
