  • "Life changing- a must for stress heads"

    Overall

    I have always suffered with a quick temper, getting stressed out when things didnt go my way and stewing on all the bad things or injustices that I have been unfortunate enough to experience.

    At age 32 my marriage was on the rocks, I couldn't relax with my children and feeling like the relationship was over, mainly down to me.

    I went to a seminar to see a guy called Damien Hughes. In that seminar he explained the model of the Chimp/human/computer psychological make up of the brain and it brought an instantaneous awareness of why I was feeling that way and reacting in the way I was.

    I was lucky enough to sit on the same table as Damien at dinner and he told me about this website and this audio book. I went home downloaded it and listened in my car, to and from work for a week.

    It was as if this book was written for me, I honestly learned more about myself from this than any councillor I've ever seen.

    6 months on and after employing the strategies outlined in the book, my marriage is now thriving and the time with my kids is wonderful.

    So a massive thank you to the author Dr Steve Peters and thank you to Damien Hughes (author of liquid thinking) for recommending this audio and explaining it so well that day.

    Life can be relentless, frantic and exhausting - but it doesn't have to be this way. This is an introduction to Mindfulness, which reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that you can incorporate into daily life to help break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness and exhaustion. Mindfulness is based on mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), which is recommended by the UK's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence and is as effective as drugs for preventing depression.

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Why is it easier to ruminate over hurt feelings than it is to bask in the warmth of being appreciated? Because your brain evolved to learn quickly from bad experiences but slowly from the good ones. You can change this. Hardwiring Happiness lays out a simple method that uses the hidden power of everyday experiences to build new neural structures full of happiness, love, confidence, and peace. Dr. Hanson's four steps build strengths into your brain, balancing its ancient negativity bias, making contentment and a powerful sense of resilience the new normal.

    Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

    There's an old saying: if you eat a live frog first thing each morning, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that it's probably the worst thing you'll do all day. Using "eat that frog" as a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on, but also the one that might have the greatest positive impact on your life, Eat That Frog! shows you how to zero in on these critical tasks and organize your day.

Nearly 20 percent of Americans now self-identify as nonreligious, including millions who are married to religious believers. Despite the differences, many of these marriages succeed beautifully. In this landmark book, popular author and secular humanist Dale McGowan explores some of the stories of these unions.
