Book:  How to Take Care of You. . .So You Can Take Care of Others

Author:  Sue Vineyard

         Sue Vineyard’s brush with a serious medical problem, created by years of a hectic and demanding lifestyle, prompted her to write a practical guide on healthy living for those who manage volunteers, people who often put the needs of others ahead of their health.  Vineyard’s book addresses issues of  coping with change, quiet killers, dimensions of health, and how to gain balance. 
         The chapter on quiet killers reviews the events that cause stress; grief, burnout, guilt, care giving, and work.  She reviews the physical and mental toll of these stressors and offers suggestions for ways to combat the impact.
         The last chapter of the book devotes itself to strategies to teach yourself how to cope with the demands of life.  A section on coping with stress includes discussions on creating a support system, improving skills in working with others, how to clarify your values and priorities, clarifying needs, assessing time management skills, deep muscle relaxation exercises, and coping with your job.
         Feeling stressed and looking for solutions.  This book is for you.
