  • "Chimps are stupid"

    Overall

    Like all life changing self help books the idea could be written in 1 sentence.



    At the same time, when you listen to the same thing being said out loud 500 times, eventually the penny will drop.



    For me the book was life changing. My biggest challenge was being able to handle other people's bad moods (& my resulting bad moods).



    By understanding the principle, this book has helped me realise what is happening. Because the idea is so simple I have been able to prevent myself from getting into a down (sad) or bad (mad) mood. I have been able to see what is going on (glad). Also even when I get into those moods, it has been able to get me out of those moods. That's no mean feat.



    If it was not simple it would not be possible to overcome a mood. It is a simple and factual idea. The author keeps it simple.



    I know that it will help me for the rest of my life.



    It is one of the best €10s that I have ever spent. For that I am very grateful to Audible.



    I have read or listened to a couple of hundred self help books, 5 of which were life changing for me.

    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.

His ideas have had a profound impact on many fields - including business, medicine, and politics - but until now, he has never brought together his many years of research in one book.

    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.
