• Raising Girls in the 21st Century: from Babyhood to Womanhood
    Raising Girls in the 21st Century: from Babyhood to Womanhood
    A powerful revised and updated edition of the bestselling parenting classic, Raising Girls.

    There has been a sudden and universal deterioration in girls' mental health and wellbeing, starting in primary school and devastating the teen years. Fierce and tender in its mission, Raising Girls in the Twenty-first Century is both a guidebook and a call-to-arms for parents. The five key stages of girlhood are laid out so that you know exactly what matters at which age, and how to build strength and connectedness into your daughter from infancy onwards. At last, there is a clear map of girls' minds that accepts no limitations, narrow roles or selling-out of your daughter's potential or uniqueness.

    Raising Girls in the Twenty-first Century explores how to help your daughter feel secure, become an explorer, get along with others, find her soul, and ultimately become a woman. All the hazards are signposted - bullying, eating disorders, body image and depression, social media harms and helps - as are concrete and simple measures for mums and dads to help raise a daughter to be strong, wise and able to stand up for herself and others. Parenthood is restored to an exciting journey, not one worry after another.

    Raising Girls in the Twenty-first Century has been updated to include:

    Two kinds of girlhood: why some girls go off the rails while others go from strength to strength.

    Finding comfort in her own skin: avoiding the toxic mix of perfectionism and overachievement.

    Mirror, mirror on the screen: how our devices and social media steal joy, and how we can put them in the right perspective.

    Pets, plants and wild places: bringing nature and its power to heal into your daughter's life.

    What's missing? A diagnostic list to identifying the gaps, and the ten vital ingredients to being happy and free.

  • Recovery Freedom From Our Addictions
    Recovery Freedom From Our Addictions
    This is the age of addiction, a condition so epidemic, so all encompassing and ubiquitous that unless you are fortunate enough to be an extreme case, you probably don't know that you have it.

    What unhealthy habits and attachments are holding your life together? Are you unconsciously dependent on food? Bad relationships? A job that doesn't fulfill you? Numb, constant perusal of your phone, looking for what?

    My qualification for writing this book is not that I am better than you, it's that I am worse. I am an addict, addicted to drugs, alcohol, sex, money, love and fame.


    The program in Twelve has given Russell Brand freedom from all addictions and it will do the same for you.

    This system offers nothing less than liberation from self-centredness, a new perspective, freedom from the illusion of suffering for anyone who is willing to take the necessary steps.

  • Reimagining Death Stories and Practical Wisdom for Home Funerals and Green Burials
    Reimagining Death Stories and Practical Wisdom for Home Funerals and Green Burials
    More natural after-death care options are transforming the paradigm of the existing funeral industry, helping families and communities recover their instinctive capacity to care for a loved one after death and do so in creative, nourishing, and healing ways. In reclaiming these practices and creating new, innovative options, we are greening the gateway of death and returning home to ourselves, our bodies, and the earth. Lucinda Herring reminds us of the sacredness of death itself; her compelling stories, poetry, and guidance come from years of experience as a home funeral/green burial consultant and licensed funeral director dedicated to more natural and healing death practices. In Reimagining Death she shares with readers her experience caring for her own mother after death. Through storytelling and resources Herring also reveals to families the gifts of partnering with nature, home funeral vigils, sacred care at death, conscious dying (through the story of a Death with Dignity with accompanying photos of one man's planned death and after-death care), bringing laughter and a greater lightness of being to death, natural burials, and emerging eco-conscous dispositions. A valuable resource in planning for all deaths in all circumstances (with a chapter on what to do when a death occurs outside of the home), this book also guides readers on how to create an advance after-death care directive.

    How does our diet affect our skin? What makes the skin age? And why can't we tickle ourselves?

    Providing a cover for our delicate and intricate bodies, the skin is our largest, fastest growing and yet least understood organ. We see it, touch it and live in it every day. It's a habitat for a mesmerizingly complex world of micro-organisms and physical functions that are vital to our health and our survival. It's also one of the first things people see about us and is crucial to our sense of identity. Our skin plays a central role in our lives. And yet how much do we really know about it?

    Through the lenses of science, sociology and history, Dr Monty Lyman leads us on a journey across our most underrated and unexplored organ. Examining our microbiome, our love of tattoos and whether or not beauty products really work, he reveals how the skin is far stranger and more complex than you've ever imagined.

  • Renew Your Mind How to rewire your brain for a happier, healthier life
    Renew Your Mind How to rewire your brain for a happier, healthier life
    Developed from Chantal Hofstee's highly successful book, Mindfulness for Life, and drawing on her years of experience as a clinical psychologist and executive coach, Renew Your Mind is the essential guide to rewiring your brain so that you can lead a rich and rewarding life that leaves you energized, healthy and happy. Few of us truly enjoy our day-to-day lives. Instead, we run around chasing our ever-growing to-do list, and end up feeling tired and anxious. This is a double tragedy, because failing to enjoy the good parts of our lives doesn't only dampen our happiness but also makes us less able to change the parts we don't like. 'Renew Your Mind' is a program that was initially designed by Chantal to bring her own life back on track. Then she saw how effective it was at helping many of clients reduce stress and enjoy life more. The quick and effective program incorporates the latest neuroscience as well as aspects of mindfulness to give you insights into the brain and techniques that will enable you to improve brain function, and create a calmer, more focused mind. The result is greater productivity, increased efficiency, reduced anxiety, enhanced creativity, and improved relationships. Packed full of real-life case studies and practical exercises that can be done in minutes, Renew Your Mind will put you on the path to the life you've always wanted!

  • Reset your Gut
    Reset your Gut
    Crash cleanses are the new crash diets; they work only in the short term and fail to address the underlying gut issues that can cause weight gain. Every woman wants a program that will keep her sane, slim, and satisfied. In Go With Your Gut & Get in Shape, Robyn Youkilis focuses on cultivating gut health to provide a sustainable way to stay slim. This plan will help women shed in a way that nourishes, not deprives; this is a lifestyle, not a diet.

    Robyn's tone is never didactic; instead reading her book is like getting advice from a close friend-reassuring while gently prodding. This kind and friendly approach is what distinguishes her among the gut-health authorities. Her plan is simple, straightforward, focused, and fun, with 75 recipes that are naturally slimming, are good for your gut, and create a total body reset. For breakfast there are Kefir Papaya Smoothie and Blueberry Chia Muffins; lunch options include Cucumber Noodle Salad and Turmeric Carrot Soup. Dinner features Lamb Tagine or Kale Spanakopita. There are even snacks like `Cheesy' Popcorn or Ginger Chai Cookies. Robyn's mission is to provide a full repertoire of everyday foods that will get you back to a balance in the long term.

  • Resilience Factor 7 Keys to Finding Your Inner Strength and Overcoming Life's Hurdles
    Resilience Factor 7 Keys to Finding Your Inner Strength and Overcoming Life's Hurdles
    Resilience is a crucial ingredient-perhaps "the" crucial ingredient-to a happy, healthy life. More than anything else, it's what determines how high we rise above what threatens to wear us down, from battling an illness, to bolstering a marriage, to carrying on after a national crisis. Everyone needs resilience, and now two expert psychologists share seven proven techniques for enhancing our capacity to weather even the cruelest setbacks. The science in "The Resilience Factor" takes an extraordinary leap from the research introduced in the bestselling "Learned Optimism "a decade ago. Just as hundreds of thousands of people were transformed by "flexible optimism," readers of this book will flourish, thanks to their enhanced ability to overcome obstacles of any kind. Karen Reivich and Andrew Shatte are seasoned resilience coaches and, through practical methods and vivid anecdotes, they prove that resilience is not just an ability that we're born with and need to survive, but a skill that anyone can learn and improve in order to thrive. Readers will first complete the Resilience Questionnaire to determine their own innate levels of resilience. Then, the system at the heart of "The Resilience Factor" will teach them to: - Cast off harsh self-criticisms and negative self-images- Navigate through the fallout of any kind of crisis- Cope with grief and anxiety- Overcome obstacles in relationships, parenting, or on the job - Achieve greater physical health- Bolster optimism, take chances, and embrace life In light of the unprecedented challenges we've recently faced, there's never been a greater need to boost our resilience. Without resorting to feel-good pap or quick-fix cliches, "The Resilience Factor" is self-help at its best, destined to become a classic in the genre.

    Resilient Grieving is a practical, research-based guide to finding your own path to recovery from devastating loss.

    'A recommended new book for those who are grieving . . . [Hone's] metaphor for life after loss is both powerful and apt: Think of it as a scattered jigsaw puzzle, where the pieces of one's former life have been scattered and now must be reconfigured in a new way.'-The Wall Street Journal

    Dr Lucy Hone works in the field of resilience psychology, helping ordinary people exposed to real-life traumatic situations. When faced with the incomprehensible fact of her daughter's tragic death Lucy knew that she was fighting for the survival of her sanity and her family unit.

    She used her practice to develop ways to support her family in their darkest days, and to find a new way of living without Abi.

    In Resilient Grieving Lucy shares her research so that others can work to regain some sense of control and take action in the face of helpless situations.
