From Stress to Stillness: Tools for Inner PeaceFrom Stress to Stillness: Tools for Inner Peace by Gina Lake
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I started this book in mid June when life was beyond stressful so in a way it was putting the author's methods to the test. I am a big fan of Deepak Chopra and was looking for something similar. While the concepts and writing style is not as deep as Chopra's, I do appreciate the author's unique take.

"Self-doubt is what most stands in the way of following our intuition, which is the true voice of wisdom." - I completely agree with this and the essence of From Stress to Stillness is dealing with negativity in your life without affecting your physical and emotional being with negativity.

The section on a New Relationship to Thoughts and Feelings is especially important for those who are dealing with a lot of stress or juggling multiple roles in their day to day lives. Gina Lake's writing is easy to understand flows but I do think that some sections were a fairly touch and go when it could have been more but this thought may stem from what I needed or was expecting at this juncture in my life.

Would I recommend this read? Absolutely, I do think that some of the author's thoughts may come across as unconventional but I say give it a chance. The problem with stress, is that we create a lot of it ourselves and different books / self-help tools work differently for each of us.

Overall assessment:
Content: 4/5
Editing: 4.5/5
Formatting: 4.5/5
Pacing: 4/5

Offensive content?: Based on language and overall content, I would recommend this book for anyone aged 13 and above.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obliged to write a positive one.
