Winning the Battle Against Stress

Effective ways to help manage stress, even for trauma survivors, is the message in Shanna Warner’s latest book Easy Stress Solutions: How to Meditate Like a Master, Banish Anxiety and Kick Depression to the Curb.

As a survivor with more than 30 years of experience dealing with PTSD, depression, panic attacks, nightmares and other negative situations, the author brings a practical approach to dealing with the problems of life. The book begins with her favorite free and easy stress-busting tools. It includes seven simple meditations that anyone can start using immediately. She also recorded three guided meditations and made them freely available for everyone on her website.

The book then details more ways to battle stress, from rescripting nightmares to using positive verbal anchors. Then the process of transformation begins with 21 days of in-depth questions, uncovering negative beliefs, rewriting personal statements and creating a framework for transformational growth.

Warner and her husband, Mark, live in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where they publish the Oklahoma edition of Natural Awakenings magazine. The book is available in print, eBook and audiobook.
