dividerFrom the introduction from Dr. Richard Blue

Bill Farrell was a colleague of mine when we were young psychologists practicing in a psychiatric hospital in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Even then, he was impressive with his diagnostic testing skills and his therapy interventions with patients. Now, over 30 years later, he has written a book.

Strong Brains, Strong Bodies: You Can Live A Longer, Healthier, and Happier Life is comprehensive for all readers and filled with specific ways to handle stress. This book not only gives you the background and chemistry of stress but also focuses on explicit ways you can practice stress reduction techniques. This is one of the most all-inclusive books about stress management and coping skills. Anyone who reads this book will increase his or her resiliency in finding balance and coping with burnout. Bill’s overview and focus on cognitive or thinking approaches will help anyone with a tendency to worry or obsess about life events.

Dr. Farrell practices what he preaches. He is a world-class weight lifter and former marathon runner. He knows firsthand the value of exercise and a positive attitude when it comes to competing.

The specific techniques presented in this book allow you to practice what you read. You can pick from an array of stress management interventions. Bill describes these techniques and interventions in ways that are easy to remember and perform. Committing yourself to practice on a daily basis can lead to a great reduction in the symptoms of stress—and help you live longer, healthier, and happier.
