Usually Ships in 1-5 days
"A fountain of youth between two covers."
Gray hair, wrinkles, papery skin, forgetfulness, extra weight around the belly. We all think we know what causes these signs of aging. But what if we've been wrong?
In Stress Less (for Women), health and science journalist Thea Singer synthesizes groundbreaking scientific findings from around the world to reveal the true culprit: chronic stress. From the symptoms we see and feel down to the erosion of our DNA, chronic stress literally speeds up our biological clocks.
But there is something we can do. This landmark book teaches women not only how to recognize their own triggers-from sleep deprivation and pessimism to over-exercising and dieting-but also offers easy fixes that reverse the damage and stop stress in its tracks.
