Imagine if you could live your life without stress. Think it’s not possible? Think again. This astonishing approach to living without stress empowers you to handle all your stress challenges.
Here are 5 tips from the book LIVE WITHOUT STRESS:
The brain-body connection is such that feelings immediately follow all of our five (5) senses and our thoughts. You cannot stop emotions, but by changing your thinking you can redirect your emotion and improve your stress management skills. You can learn how to do this.
Think negatively and increase your stress. Think positive thoughts and good feelings like hope and empowerment follow. You can learn how to live you life with positivity and improve your stress management skills.
Choice ends when life ends. Be aware of you choices and you never need to feel as if you are a victim. You can learn how to make stress-reducing choices.
You can control other people, but you cannot change them. People change themselves. The key to this is to have others WANT to do what you want them to do because THEY WANT TO. The skill of asking reflective questions to yourself and to influence others can be learned by anyone and is one of the most effective skills for stress management.
All assumptions are guesswork. People are incapable of articulating their motivation—or in many cases do not want to. You can significantly reduce your stress by reducing your assumptions.
Look inside LIVE WITHOUT STRESS to use simple strategies to significantly reduce your stress, promote responsibility, increase your effectiveness, improve your relationships, and truly enjoy life’s experiences. Whether your stress stems from work, parenting, teaching, relationships, or a situation you cannot change, the keys are here for you to improve your stress management. Are you ready? A new, happier, more enjoyable, and less stressful life awaits you.
Marvin Marshall’s book about living without stress will give you an interesting perspective on how to reduce your stress in all aspects of your life. It’s an easy-to-read, well-balanced, and witty book that I would recommend to anyone feeling overwhelmed.

Live Without Stress is counter-intuitive in that Marvin Marshall teaches that stress really comes from actions and thoughts. What one believes, assumes or expects impacts tremendously how effectively we behave in the situation. One of my favorite chapters was ‘Competition and Collaboration’ because of the explanation of the benefits and drawbacks of each approach. You will enjoy the examples and stories of success, which make this book quite enjoyable.

Jim Cathcart Author of The Self-Motivation Handbook, The Acorn Principle, and Relationship Selling July 21, 2017
This book is a probing examination of how to assess and dispense with the stresses of life.
In this comparatively short, accessible volume, Marshall takes aim at an omnipresent element of modern existence: stress. Innumerable studies have linked stress to a wide array of health problems, from heart disease to ulcers to depression, and Marshall offers advice based on the idea that stress is largely a person’s own creation.
“Creating good habits takes time, patience and resolve, and you will inevitably encounter setbacks along the way,” Marshall writes. “But the key is to never give up—and in a few short months, you may find yourself on the road to the way of life you truly desire.”
As the book unfolds its road map, it emphasizes three areas. The first are unrealistic or unhelpful assumptions that readers make, which can escalate stress levels. The second are physical aspects that are often key to managing stress—poor posture, poor eating and sleeping habits, lack of exercise, and so on. The third is the motivation of oneself and others.
Again and again, the author reiterates that people need not grant circumstances the power to dictate responses—a very useful reminder. As in his other books, Marshall presents his precepts in clear, ringing prose that’s intent on encouraging rather than scolding.
Some of these precepts—such as that one should never give up or that one is the captain of one’s own ship—are on the platitudinous side, but they’re no less valuable for that. Throughout his discussions, Marshall focuses on personal responsibility—the choices that one makes to control one’s personal finances, one’s exercise routines, and the way that one frames how one interacts with the world: “There is a problem when we think our responses are automatically controlled by external stimuli.”
Live WITHOUT STRESS contains a wide-ranging and convincingly sympathetic approach to understanding and dealing with all kinds of stress.
