I've just finished reading "Be Still: Stress and Anxiety Management for Latter-day Saints," and have to admit that "finished" is the wrong word. Yes, I read it all the way through. No, it's not finished, because I'll be dipping back in many times for as long as there is stress in my life (is there ever not?).
Lois D. Brown published this book with psychologist Dr. Victoria Anderson. I love the easy style and countless true stories that illustrate each concept, making ideas so much easier to understand than straight technical jargon. Even more important - the anecdotes help me remember important facts.
I'm already putting a couple of wise thoughts from Be Still into practice in my life and am enjoying that lively, out-of-the-box feeling that comes with success in small but significant areas.
One example teaches how to reprogram our brain nerve synapses (where one nerve joins another) that produce frightening, unpleasant, or unwanted memories, and enable them to become reorganized and/or replaced, so thinking about those events no longer causes distress. Not sure if I've explained that quite right. You need to read for yourselves to find out. But I can tell you it works! Negative thinking can be turned around, producing both physical and mental health improvements.
This book can help anyone, LDS or not. An eye-opening read.
