I've been reading the "You Manual" by Dr Oz. It is a fairly easy read and very informative. It all inspires me to live a healthier lifestyle.

I just thought I'd post this question here, as it is a way that has helped me. Do any of you do yoga? The poses relax me -- so just wanted to pass that one along and, if you have never tried it, check it out and see if it helps you.

I sometimes read "Meditations for Women Who Do Too Much." There is one for each day, and a quote, small paragraph and an affirmation for the day also.

One of the things I really love about the majority of personal finance blogs is how easily the advice given can be applied to multiple areas of your life. From this article, the following passage really spoke to me:

"By accepting what you discover about yourself, you can get closer to the source of the behavior. You canít think constructively about what causes you to react a certain way and learn to handle or redirect the habit if youíre busy hating yourself."

As an example, I tend to be really great at worrying about what will happen down the road instead of focusing on what is happening now. For the majority of my life, "now" has just been too difficult to deal with; however, I neglected to consider just how important a role "now" plays in the future. When I start worrying about something that could happen in the future, I try my best to refocus that energy on something I can take care of today instead.

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." --Philippians 4:8

I have found some of Julia Cameron's books (e.g. The Artist's Way) to be helpful because of writing the Morning Pages, during which I can pour out a lot of garbage on paper, and it does help to calm me down.

Please share various articles, or books that you have read which you feel has helped you in your dealing with anxiety and stress. There are so many self-help books available, and it would be great to hear about the ones that have been beneficial to you!

So, please share -- we'd love to hear about them and maybe they can help another friend here!
