Deal with Stress: Nourished by Becky Johnson

If you’ve ever asked yourself “How can I possibly deal with stress without losing it?” you need to read this book. Don’t get me wrong, my life is pretty good. I love my job. I love my family. There are no huge issues that are causing me stress in my life. For me, and probably you, it’s a lot of little things. It’s not being able to find that form your son needs signed for school right now. It’s being late for an appointment. It’s your toddler’s temper tantrum. It’s your teenager’s detention.

There are a lot of things that cause women stress. From this book, I’ve learned that things like clutter, busy schedules, negative body image, marriage, kids and feeling like a spiritual slacker compared to others are common for many of us. In this book, Becky and Rachel share some of the causes of stress in their lives and how they deal with them. I love the outlook from 2 different perspectives. Rachel is a young, new mom and Becky is at a later stage in life where she is just becoming a grandmother. I could relate to both of them in different ways.

In Nourished, you’ll look at each of the most common causes of stress and how Rachel and Becky are dealing with them in their lives.  Then they’ll share ideas that you can use to deal with those stresses in your life. For the most part, I found their ideas helpful and to be things I could really apply to my life. The only thing I wish they had gotten into was dealing with older kids specifically rather than just younger kids. Play dates and nap times aren’t a part of my life right now but dealing with stress caused by rebellious teenagers would have been very welcome.

If you’d like to find better ways to deal with stress, I definitely recommend you read Nourished by Becky Johnson and Rachel Randolph.

  3. I have alot of stress in my life,I deal with caring for a adult disabled child, and the past 13 years dealing with my son’s suicide. I have learned that I am stronger than I thought but some advice on dealing with it would be nice.

  4. I commented on the post The Repurposed and Upcycled Life by Michelle Rayburn, since I rediscovered it on my Kindle, prompting me to make an effort to read and work through it some.
