'I can't imagine a better book ... to help cope with the level of stress we're all now experiencing on a daily basis' Angela Duckworth, author of international bestseller GRIT 'A timely and welcome prescription' Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive Global

Science-backed, actionable strategies for countering stress and building your resilience. As our lives begin to return to normal and our days become busier, micro stressors can build up; whether it's the never-ending to-do list, your laptop crashing mid-meeting or a long commute into work, they can leave us feeling drained and overwhelmed.

Drawn from 20 years of experience treating clients at the brink of burn-out, leading psychiatrist Dr Samantha Boardman reveals practical techniques for how we can handle stress, boost positivity and transform full days into more fulfilling days. Based on her clinical experience and scientific research, she explains that the key is to cultivate our vitality, the positive feeling of being alive and the energy that lies at the heart of a good day. The three ways we can do this are: meaningfully connecting with others, engaging in challenging experiences and contributing to something beyond ourselves. So whether it's doing a favour for a neighbour, going for a brisk walk or discussing an interesting article with a friend, activities like these can increase emotional stamina and generate positivity, which help to counteract stress. Whether you're twenty or eighty, this book will help you find better ways to boost your mood, recharge your batteries and feel ready for whatever life throws at you. 'If you're depressed, burned out, or languishing, this book is brimming with practical ideas ... for sustaining energy and well-being' Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of THINK AGAIN 'A must-read for anyone who seeks meaning and fulfilment' Andrew Solomon, author of The Noonday Demon
