A LOCAL businessman has written a book about stress relief for those in demanding jobs.

Wanna kick stress and be happy, written by John Gardener, contains a series of exercises and techniques to help the reader counter the effect of work pressures and life troubles.

Gardener, based in Almeria, penned the book after spending years as a business adviser to struggling companies in London.

He said: “The one thing that kept cropping up in ailing companies were staff complaints of feeling stressed. I, therefore, specialised in stress elimination among workforces to improve performance. It was a very successful strategy.
