Denise Martell is a stress manager, fitness expert and life coach who’s worked with Hollywood’s biggest names and business superstars. From the age of 4, she was fascinated by health and happiness, was a vegetarian by age 8, and a certified fitness trainer by 16. Born on a tranquil horse ranch in Vancouver, Canada,
Denise has lived in many stress-filled places, from South Central LA during the riots to a royal palace in Europe. She’s been featured in Harper’s Bazaar as one of Hollywood’s top six stress management gurus and twice in Shape magazine for her fitness expertise. She’s a former TV reporter, a frequent guest expert on radio talk shows (with her own show in development), and is known for her trademark question, “What’s your stress?” and is the author of the book by the same name.
What’s Your Stress? is a simple, realistic guide to combating stress from the inside out. From “soul stress” to “stress to go,” this compact book soothes readers while guiding them to the source of their stress with questions that cut to the deepest levels where stress resides.
The book breaks stress down into specific categories that allow readers to customize stress management in areas such as love, money, time and sleep. They learn how to access quantum thought – a hidden dimension of the mind that holds the key to maximum stress reduction with minimal effort. For readers in crisis, the book offers quick-fix techniques that give instant relief from anxiety.
Each chapter deals with a specific stress, then guides readers to an effective solution, often illustrated with true tales from my work with some of the world’s most powerful people. At times I use my own life experience to show the success of the What’s Your Stress? system. Here’s a sample layout: Chapter 13, “Supplement Stress,” opens by showing how the slightest deficiency in a vitamin, mineral or nutrient can magnify any problem.
It forces readers to ask and answer questions about the supplements they take that could reveal a hidden stress challenge, then shows how to connect the dots to solve their health puzzle. The chapter closes with techniques that readers can use right now, and offers an additional directory of therapies, healers and products that provide further solutions to fit any budget.
