LOVED IT! ★★★★
No nonsense, straight to the point guidance on how to set yourself free from being bogged down with worry.
The book is so conversational in tone it is almost as if you have the author right in front of you telling you how it is. I love the straight-forwardness of it all, there really is no beating around the bush with this guide to beating stress. It is not about managing or coping, it really does center on quashing fears and emotional burden. I found it very thought-provoking, as relieving yourself of bad habits such as over-thinking or over-worrying really does allow you to have more productive, happier free time. The book is packed with affirmations, inspirational quotes, informal language and plenty of motivational optimism for the reader. Even at the very end of the book, the author has included some brilliant illustrations with positive quotes and affirmations for the reader to remind themselves of what they are dedicated to achieving.
The author certainly expresses some interesting opinions and theories on how and why people allow stress to become a part of their lives. Money, relationships and work tend to be the main contributing factors here. The idea of metaphysics is discussed to help explain how people can overcome their bad habits physically and even spiritually. The book also stresses the importance of self-affirmations when it comes to restoring confidence and breaking bad habits. I especially liked the three columned sheet provided for readers to apply what they have learned in a proactive manner, where they can write down their triggers, thoughts, affirmations and mantras. These are great resources and I would recommend this book to anybody wanting to tackle their obsessive stressing head on.
Despite the fact that there is a lot packed into this book in terms of lessons, activities and content in general, the book is actually quite brief and does not take up much of the reader's time. So there is no excuse after reading it for you to not get on with life with a fresh attitude towards taking control of your bad habits!

Stress is been something else and predominant this year. Especially with the pandemic and a lot of us being home, Politics. This book is an essential guy to help you deal with that and live a calmer life.
Stress. Something everyone is likely familiar with, especially in 2020 with the global pandemic. This book is relatable , with the author speaking TO the reader instead of rattling off lots of technical mumbo jumbo that can't be applied. There are helpful quotes and affirmations, as well as some printables, that many readers will find useful.
<i>How to Break the Stress Habit</i> is a quick read that addresses the chronic stress epidemic facing our society today. Cherie Celeste gets right to the point with her conversational, straight from the hip style of encouragement. While the premise draws upon the Law of Attraction as a means of reducing stress and treating the cause instead of the symptoms, I like Celeste's unique approach of returning to our childhood fantasies and basically "faking it till you make it". Her observations about our coping mechanisms are spot on and any reader will find it easy to relate to the common psychological blocks we create for ourselves based on our innate fight or flight response. In addition to the behavioral suggestions Celeste offers, she also includes affirmations and downloadable artwork and stickers to reinforce the concepts. While I appreciate Celeste's plan for using psychological hacks as a natural treatment for many physical ailments caused by stress, I think I would be remiss if I didn't bring up the point that she never adds that tried and true disclaimer about not going off your meds without your doctor's consent. I think it's most people's ultimate goal to not be reliant on medication, but many people benefit greatly from the medications available to them and would suffer greatly if they quit cold turkey. Enjoy the book, try the techniques, but don't feel guilty if you still need the medication to keep going. I am grateful to NetGalley and BooksGoSocial for the opportunity to share my honest review of this book.
