The Mind-Body Stress Reset

Self-Administered First Aid for Stress

In our busy, get-it-done-now, high-expectation culture, stress has become the new normal—a normal that’s embedding itself into our minds and our bodies. If left unchecked, stress can dictate how you think, how you feel, and how you act.  For too many of us, anxiety and overwhelm are nearly daily experiences, while malaise and unease are standard as well. Over time, these stress-reactions can become mind-body habits, leaving us stuck in a rut of stress. So, how can you soothe stress before it becomes your mind-body go to?

In this supportive, lightly-humorous, and uplifting guide, you’ll learn powerful and effective tools for repairing the stress-ruts in your mind and body.  Based on the innovative Mind-Body Reset (MBR) program, you’ll learn how to stop stress in its tracks. With these simple somatic exercises, you’ll discover how you can “reset” your nervous system, alleviate stress flare-ups, and boost your overall health and happiness. If you’re ready to combat stress, cultivate calm, and live a more vital life, it’s time for this reset!

The Mind-Body Stress Reset provides clear theoretical and practical guidance to help people restore their vital capacity for resilience in the aftermath of trauma and toxic stress. It does this through well-conceived, and simple tools employing body awareness. This book is equally valuable for new therapists, accomplished ones, and to all of those seeking inner balance and wholeness.”

Peter A. Levine, PhD, founder of Somatic Experiencing and author of Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma and In an Unspoken Voice: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness

 

“Like a good friend who knows the territory through hard won personal experience, Rebekkah LaDyne shows you that you have everything you need for well-being right inside of you. Written in an engaging, accessible style The Mind-Body Stress Reset offers simple yet profound science-based tools that train you to self-regulate your stress and connect with your optimal self. You don’t have to go down the rabbit hole of your mind. You can learn how to connect with the wisdom of the body that helps you be grounded and not miss the blessing of being alive. A truly excellent contribution.”

James Baraz, MA, cofounding teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center, and coauthor of Awakening Joy

 

“The Mind-Body Stress Reset book does just what the title claims. Drawing deeply from the traditions of somatics, yoga, mindfulness, and contemporary research, Rebekkah LaDyne presents a pragmatic and user-friendly approach to addressing stress in a way that is accessible, useful, and effective!”

Mariana Caplan, PhD, MFT, author of Yoga & Psyche and Eyes Wide Open

 

“I highly recommend Rebekkah LaDyne’s book for anyone who has ever experienced anxiety, worry, and tension. Here is a practical guide for enhancing well-being by building resilience. Her approach is well supported by research on somatic therapies and mind-body medicine. LaDyne shows readers effective skills to “reset” their mind-body baseline. She challenges us to try the skill exercises and achieve a mind-body reset in our lives.”

Donald Moss, PhD, dean, College of Integrative Medicine and Health Sciences, Saybrook University, coauthor of Pathways to Illness, Pathways to Health, and author of Integrative Pathways: Navigating Chronic Illness with a Mind-Body-Spirit Approach

 

“A highly readable manual for life! Offering simple, yet effective exercises and surveys to identify and survive modern day stresses. Creatively written with an excellent mixture of science, research, and self-disclosure, all of which give credibility and depth to Rebekkah LaDyne’s knowledge. I highly recommend.”

Ariel Giarretto, LMFT, SEP Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute Senior Faculty and internationally recognized somatic psychotherapist

 

“In an accessible and easy to follow way Rebekkah LaDyne has given the lay reader a clear way to understand stress responses and how to manage them with simple, straightforward strategies.  With lightly humorous writing LaDyne provides a researched overview that should capture readers’ creative imaginations to reduce their stress reactions with helpful checklists and exercises that can be done anywhere. The science that supports her writing and ideas is described simply and will make all readers comfortable in trying the suggestions she offers.  ”

Dave Berger, MFT, PT, SEP, Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute Senior Faculty and internationally recognized somatic psychotherapist

 

“Rebekkah LaDyne combines three powerful, evocative tools, the mental, emotional and somatic aspects of the human body as long lasting, natural defenses against stress in a sometimes chaotic world. By hacking the Body-Mind connection in concert, her well-supported methods recognize that the body also needs a voice in maintaining balance. It is with joy and respect that I recommend her book to those of us that need help in remembering that balance.”

Elena Gillespie, PhD, adjunct faculty, Mind Body Medicine, Saybrook University, author of The Anatomy of Death: Notes From a Healer’s Casebook

 

“Rebekkah LaDyne has written a wise, practical, and insightful guide to working with adversity and stress. Weaving relevant theory with evidence-based practice, LaDyne offers a powerful roadmap for safe and transformative body-based practice. It is clearly written, full of heart, and an outstanding contribution to the field.”

David Treleaven, PhD, author of Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness

 

“Somatic intelligence is often a neglected or rather forgotten territory. Rebekkah LaDyne shows us with her remarkable book how much potential for healing opens up once we invite this intelligence into our consciousness and give it space to balance out the wounds of trauma and neglect. The book is a wonderful blend of scientifically based theory and playful exercises. I wish the whole world would read it—I see it as a guide into health, happiness and joyful living.”
