Abstract

This insightful book addresses recovery as a comprehensive concept for prevention of health-threats in modern societies through active lifestyles. Several areas of society are addressed, such as sports, work environments, and the military. Internationally renowned experts from different scientific disciplines present results of empirical research as well as applied intervention techniques to effectively manage stress and promote recovery in healthy lifestyles. Recognizing the systemic nature of stress and recovery is critical to designing effective interventions and policies. By promoting a balance between stress and recovery in physiological, psychological, and social terms, individuals and societies can build resilience, promote optimal well-being, and mitigate the negative effects of chronic stress. This book focuses on key research in the area of recovery and healthy living and addresses psychological, somatic and organizational prevention strategies that foster recovery and healthy lifestyles in society. It offers an expanded understanding of recovery in the health field and applies this to different areas, such as the workplace. Though written for the scientific community, the book will also benefit applied health scientists, instructors, and students, as well as readers interested in applying effective well-being and recovery techniques in their own lives.
