Balancing Act: Reflections, Meditations, and Coping Strategies for Today’s Fast-Paced Whirl

by Adele Ryan McDowell, Ph.D.

Psychoneuroimmunology has taught us that emotions, thoughts, bodily sensations, and yearnings of the soul work hand-in-hand within the ecosystem of our being.


In Balancing Act, you will find reflections, meditations, and coping strategies grounded in psychoneuroimmunology, cognitive-behavioral, transpersonal and positive psychologies, big picture spirituality, and humor to help you make it through the day – as well as the night.

The book is filled with short essays, fabulous quotes, and always-fun New Yorker cartoons. It is a companionable resource that offers comfort, encouragement, hope, and humor. It’s a small book with big rewards.

Balancing Act  is an indispensable resource for handling stress and strain. It is practical, comforting, and humorous — a must-have for your bedside table.
