Strengths-Based Workbook for Stress Relief: A Character Strengths Approach to Finding Calm in the Chaos of Daily Life

by Ryan M. Niemiec, PsyD Author

A lot of the advice out there for the stressed and overwhelmed among us is about focusing on fixing whatever your problems are. This workbook takes a different approach, focusing instead on what your strong points already are. We're all good at something, be it kindness, humor, humility, energy, perseverance, curiosity, hopefulness, teamwork, leadership, or appreciating the beautiful things around you. This workbook walks you through assessing your stress, assessing your character strengths (it's especially great at helping you find ones you didn't realize you have), making a plan to use those strengths to manage the situations that trigger stress in your life, and integrating your strengths into your daily routine. Good stuff here, definitely earns the stressed-out-publishing-worker's seal of approval.
