The Self-Help Stress Solutions - Walking for Stress Relief by Darlene Josaphe (4 stars) Review & Kindle Fire HD Giveaway

About Walking for Stress Relief (49 pages) 

Consider the common stressors of everyday life: work, family, money and community obligations to name a few. When you let these pressures add up, they lead to stress - in sometimes dangerous levels - which can result in stress-related illness. Walking moves the body in a relaxed way, helps clear the mind and allows the walker to focus on the physical sensations in the body.

Meditation exercises such as yoga and tai chi often get the spotlight for their ability to clear the mind, relax the body and offer a quality workout. But the simple act of walking rivals these exercises by relieving physical and mental stress and bringing the mind to a new sense of calm. This shows you how to start walking for stress relief.


Everyone struggles with some degree of stress, and each of us utilize different coping mechanisms to lessen it. Even when we know what works, we are often too stressed to put a plan into action. Thanks to Darlene Josaphe's series, we have some quick-read resources at our disposal. 

I was given the opportunity to review a few of them: Walking for Stress Relief, Nutrition for Stress Relief, and Time Management for Stress Relief. The first up-- walking. I agree with the author that walking for exercise and stress relief isn't hip and sexy. We all hear about yoga, Zumba, and local races. Exercise is a very effective tool for stress reduction, and walking is one of the easiest ways to do that--it's inexpensive (no gym fees), connects you with nature, and it's simple (no difficult moves).

Walking not only fulfills the daily recommended exercise component of our lives, it gives us time to clear our heads, lower blood pressure, and allows us to sleep better. All of which then reduce our stress. Through a series of small chapters, the author shares the science behind walking as well as the corresponding benefits.

If you suffer from stress, take a few minutes to read this quick, but effective, piece and consider adding walking to your life. The author has a non-threatening way of communicating what we all know, but need to be reminded of: stress is not good for us, and there are simple ways to reduce it if we focus and take the necessary time.
