New Year's Resolutions for Time and Stress Management

            It’s the end of January, but it’s not too late to get to some of those New Year’s resolutions. Here are some books to help.
            The Weekend Makeover: Get a Brand New Life by Monday Morning, written by Jill Martin and Dana Ravich, who are also the coauthors of the New York Times bestseller I Have Nothing to Wear. In this book, women are advised on how to make, execute and apply 48-hour plans to improve their diets, workouts, beauty techniques, vacation goals, closet and clutter cleanups, and more.  
            Less Doing, More Living: Make Everything in Life Easier is written by Ari Meisel, an efficiency consultant. His guide includes ways to organizing your work and personal lives so that you can: write up lower-level tasks in an instruction book and delegate to others; use apps and computer tools to optimize workflow; create an “external brain” in the Cloud for storing projects; rely on a digitized trail not a paper one; and improve your fitness, sleep and nutrition levels to enhance your performance.
          10 Steps to Mastering Stress: a Lifestyle Approach, is written by David Barlow, Ronald Rapee, and Sarah Perini; all who are psychology professionals with more than twenty years of experience working with stressed and anxious individuals. Mindfulness-based stress reduction strategies are illustrated with detailed case studies from these professionals’ notebooks; useful for the general reader.
