’…short, sharp guide to managing your mind.’ THE SUNDAY TIMES STYLE

‘If I could inject it, I would.’ REFINERY29


Manage your mind. Handle your emotions. Concentrate on what matters in life.

So many of us feel stressed in our daily lives but lack the ability to respond to life’s hurdles effectively and overcome these challenges. We can build resilience to stress by taking action to live our lives in a more meaningful way.

The answer is to become stressilient.

Dr Sam Akbar will show you how. As a clinical psychologist with over ten years of experience, Dr Sam draws from her own professional expertise to provide sensitive and realistic guidance to feel calmer, less stressed, and more resilient to life’s challenges.

From understanding how your brain works, managing your emotions and challenging your thought-processes, to opening up your perspective and having more self-compassion, Stressilient offers an indispensable, easy and effective go-to guide to help you get from surviving to thriving.

‘Hence her short, sharp guide to managing your mind — Stressilient: How to Beat Stress and Build Resilience — is pointedly written by a woman for women…[Akbar’s] methods actually work and she explains them really well… Stressilient is a zippy read but it is grounded in robust scientific study… Akbar, 46, is instantly recognisable as a lovely person. In the book she quotes Charlie Brown alongside Greek philosophy, the Auschwitz survivor and psychologist Victor Frankl and the French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir.’ THE SUNDAY TIMES STYLE

“The chapters touch upon tips for managing emotions, challenging negative thought processes and encouraging more self-compassion without being overly preachy. If I could inject it, I would.” REFINERY29

“a new and brilliant book” THE TELEGRAPH

‘Now, clinical psychologist Dr Sam Akbar shows us how to become “stressilient” with this fascinating and helpful book. Our tester found the practical guidelines exceptionally helpful, and liked the science-backed approach of the book.’INDEPENDENT
