Dr Rangan Chatterjee knows this better than anyone. As a practising GP he’s seen first-hand how stress affects his patients and has found simple but effective methods to help them. Now he’s on a mission to show that combatting stress is easier than you think. For Dr Chatterjee, the key to solving the problem of stress is about addressing the underlying causes of our anxieties in four main areas: Body, Mind, Relationships, and Purpose.
Pairing the science of what happens in our brains and our bodies when we become stressed, with personal accounts and patient cases in The Stress Solution Dr Chatterjee offers simple and achievable interventions to help you re-set your life, offering simple tools for how to cope with modern-life.
Introducing a new way of thinking about health, The Stress Solution will help you to live a happier, more fulfilling and stress-free life.
