Based on the concept of holistic wellness, this textbook combines wisdom from various world cultures; insights on the integration, balance, and harmony of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual factors; theories and research studies from health psychology, psychoneuroimmunology, and holistic healing; and practical approaches to becoming resilient to stress. It addresses stress and its relationship to physiology and disease, as well as the sociology of stress; mental, emotional and spiritual aspects, including stress-prone and stress-resistant personality traits; coping strategies like reframing, behavior modification, journal writing, expressive art therapy, humor therapy, creative problem solving, communication skills, and managing time and money; and 12 relaxation techniques, such as breathing, mindfulness, yoga, mental imagery and visualization, music therapy, massage therapy, tai chi, muscular relaxation, autogenic training and clinical biofeedback, exercise, nutrition, and ecotherapy.
