    When Life Is Not Peachy
    A warm hug in book form

    'Warm, wise and brilliantly practical. Pip Lincolne is exactly the woman you want in your corner when your chips are down.' - Clare Bowditch

    When life has taken a difficult turn, our heart is aching and we're only just holding it together, it's easy to question everything. Who even am I, and how will I keep going? We need someone in our corner to travel this journey with us and help keep our spirits up.

    This book is a gentle guide for navigating loss, grief or other sad times - a resource both for those who are downhearted and those supporting a loved one. With thoughtful advice on dealing with friends and family; healthy tips for eating and exercise when you don't feel like it; and a just-keep-yourself-going '101' for when you're feeling very low. It's the bolstering force we need to feel a bit closer to ourselves, or find a bit of peace.

    For years Pip Lincolne has had a dedicated readership through her blog Meet Me At Mike's and frankie magazine. She wrote this book during some tough times of her own, in the hope that what she learned might help someone else feel a little better some day.

  • Where to Begin A Small Book about Your Power to Create Big Change in Our Crazy World
    Where to Begin A Small Book about Your Power to Create Big Change in Our Crazy World
    Cleo Wade's second anthology of heartfelt poetry and prose builds on the wisdom of her bestselling book Heart Talk, encouraging you to remain hopeful and harness your personal power to bring positive change into our world.
    Where to Begin is perfect for those who are ready to be a part of building a society rooted in love, acceptance, justice, and equality.

    From Cleo Wade:

    Where to Begin is a collection of the ideas, mantras, and poems I turn to when I feel like I am losing it. I wrote this so that I could put them all in one place when I felt overwhelmed by worry, fear, anxiety, or helplessness.

    The words in this book are what stop me from walking away from the problems of the world during tough times. They also help me stay connected to hope during difficult moments and remind me that even on the days that feel the most daunting, I still have the power to show up and do something, somewhere, in some way.

    Change-making comes in all sizes. It doesn't always have to be one big gesture or nothing. As my friend Jenna often says, "The big stuff is the small stuff." Your big life is made up of a collection of all of your small moments. Our big world is a made up of a collection of all of our small actions. This book is about where to begin.

  • Why are We Yelling
    Why are We Yelling
    Why Are We Yelling is the essential book about how to turn arguments into a productive and enjoyable dialogue rather than a bad-natured confrontation.

    The way we argue is broken - whether we're arguing about immigration, the existence of ghosts, the best burger in the city, or who's allowed to sit in your favourite chair. We end up digging in our heels and yelling at one another or choosing to avoid heated topics entirely. Either way, problems continue to fester under the surface and inevitably return as even bigger problems later on. There has to be a better way.

    Buster Benson, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur with two-decades of experience facilitating hard conversations at some of the biggest and most controversial tech companies in the world, is on a mission to help us see disagreement differently. He recommends 10 things to try in order to make disagreements more productive. The way we talk is laden with old conversational habits that need to be re-examined - and by practicing these 10 new habits we can flip frustrating, unproductive disagreements into ones that bear fruit and bring people closer together. Instead of dreading arguments, or avoiding them at all costs, we'll even start looking forward to them as one of the most rewarding parts of our lives.

    In this book you'll learn practical skills to make your disagreements more fruitful by:

    * Learning to see and appreciate four other fruits of disagreements that are more valuable than "winning", and easier to harvest.
    * Identifying the kind of argument you're having so you can know how to best approach it.
    * Articulating the best possible version of your opponent's argument before attacking it.

    With this toolkit, we can learn to see the world as a less frustrating and more interesting place. Gone will be the days of mentally gearing up to attack people and defending ourselves from people we disagree with. Instead, we can explore more possibilities and perspectives in the world, simply because we'll no longer be afraid to wade into scary topics of conversation.

  • Why We Cant Sleep Womens New Midlife Crisis
    Why We Cant Sleep Womens New Midlife Crisis
    When Ada Calhoun found herself in the throes of a midlife crisis, she thought that she had no right to complain. She was married with children and a good career. So why did she feel miserable? And why did it seem that the women around her were miserable, too?

    Calhoun decided to find some answers. She looked into housing costs, HR trends, credit card debt averages and divorce data. At every turn, she saw a pattern- sandwiched between the Boomers and the Millennials, Gen X women were facing new problems as they entered middle age, problems that were largely overlooked. Speaking with women across America about their experiences as the generation raised to 'have it all,' Calhoun found that most were exhausted, terrified about money, under-employed, and overwhelmed. Instead of being heard, they were told instead to lean in, take 'me-time', or make a chore chart to get their lives and homes in order.

    In Why We Can't Sleep, Calhoun opens up the cultural and political contexts of this predicament and offers solutions for how to pull oneself out of the abyss-and keep the next generation of women from falling in. The result is reassuring, empowering and essential reading for all middle-aged women, and anyone who hopes to understand them.

  • Why We Dream the New Science Behind Dreams and Why They Matter
    Why We Dream the New Science Behind Dreams and Why They Matter
    We all dream, and 98 per cent of us can recall our dreams the next morning. Even in today's modern age, it is human nature to wonder what they mean.

    Now, groundbreaking science is putting dreams at the forefront of new research into sleep, memory, the concept of self and human socialization. Once a subject of the New Age and spiritualism, the science of dreams is revealed to have a crucial role in the biology and neuroscience of our waking lives.

    In Why We Dream, Alice Robb, a leading American science journalist, will take readers on a journey to uncover why we dream, why dreaming matters, and how we can improve our dream life - and why we should. Through her encounters with scientists at the cutting edge of dream research, she reveals how:

    - Dreams can be powerful tools to help us process the pain of a relationship break-up, the grief of losing a loved one and the trauma after a dramatic event
    - Nightmares may be our body's warning system for physical and mental illness (including cancer, depression and Alzheimer's)
    - Athletes can improve their performance by dreaming about competing
    - Drug addicts who dream about drug-taking can dramatically speed up their recovery from addiction.

    Robb also uncovers the fascinating science behind lucid dreaming - when we enter a dream state with control over our actions, creating a limitless playground for our fantasies. And as one of only 10 per cent of people with the ability to lucid-dream, she is uniquely placed to teach us how to do it ourselves.

    With incredible new discoveries and stunning science, Why We Dream will give you dramatic insight into yourself and your body. You'll never think of dreams in the same way again.

  • Will I Ever be Good Enough
    Will I Ever be Good Enough
    The first book for daughters who have suffered the abuse of selfish, self-involved mothers, Will I Ever Be Good Enough? provides the expert assistance you need in order to overcome this debilitating history and reclaim your life. Drawing on more than two decades of experience as a therapist specializing in women's health and hundreds of interviews with suffering daughters, Dr. Karyl McBride helps you recognize the widespread effects of this emotional abuse and create an individualized program for self-protection, resolution, and complete recovery. Narcissistic mothers teach their daughters that love is not unconditional, that it is given only when they behave in accordance with maternal expectations and whims. As adults, these daughters have difficulty overcoming feelings of inadequacy, disappointment, emotional emptiness, and sadness. They may also have a fear of abandonment that leads them to form unhealthy romantic relationships, as well as a tendency to perfectionism and unrelenting self-criticism or to self-sabotage and frustration. Dr. McBride's step-by-step program will enable you to:

    (1) Recognize your own experience with maternal narcissism and its effects on all aspects of your life

    (2) Discover how you have internalized verbal and nonverbal messages from your mother and how these have translated into overachievement or self-sabotage

    (3) Construct a personalized program to take control of your life and enhance your sense of self, establishing healthy boundaries with your mother and breaking the legacy of abuse

    Warm and sympathetic, Dr. McBride brings a profound level of authority to Will I Ever Be Good Enough? that encourages and inspires you as it aids your recovery.

  • Wisdom from a Humble Jellyfish
    Wisdom from a Humble Jellyfish
    A delightfully illustrated guide to harnessing the rhythms of nature for self-care.

    We could all learn a thing or two about living in balance from our friends in the plant and animal kingdom.

    Take, for example, the jellyfish, one of the most energy-efficient animals in the world, moving through the ocean by contracting and relaxing, with frequent breaks in between.

    Or the avocado tree, which can credit its existence to a mutually beneficial relationship with the pre-historic sloth, followed by some hungry, hungry humans and the advent of agriculture.

    And then there is the oyster, producing a pearl as the result of an immune response when a grain of sand invades her system. What better example exists of how adversity can produce something beautiful

    We need look no farther than nature-from the habits of the porcupine to the sunflower to the wombat to the dragonfly-for small and simple things we can do to slow down, recharge, and living more thoughtfully, lovingly, and harmoniously.

    Wisdom From a Humble Jellyfish . . . is at once charming and scientific, packed with essential wisdom and practical tips worth borrowing from our plant and animal friends for life-changing self-care.

  • Wisdom Years
    Wisdom Years
    We are now experiencing one of the most significant - but not yet fully understood - revolutions in human life: the dramatic rise in life expectancy. This revolution does not imply, as most people usually think, that we've simply got more years of old age. Rather, it implies the formation of a new period in human life: the Age of Wisdom. This age is qualitatively different from the adulthood that precedes it and the old age that follows. People who are able to prepare themselves for this new age will be able to enjoy an active, wise and satisfying stage of life, which will enable them to delay their `old age' to the very end of their life. The Wisdom Years provides a practical, thought-provoking and life-changing read for both people embarking on retirement as well as younger people who would like to mindfully prepare themselves in advance. Derived from Dr Lanir's lifetime of work experience in identifying mindsets that are no longer helpful or relevant to current reality, it reveals how we can reframe our thought processes and mind set so that we can live life based on our `functional age' rather than our `chronological age'. The result is a book that carries a unique and inspiring message: life after retirement is to be enjoyed as a new, exciting and uplifting journey of personal evolution.

  • Womens Wellness Wisdom
    Womens Wellness Wisdom
    The latest book by eight times number one best-selling author Dr Libby, Women’s Wellness Wisdom, is, quite simply, the book that every woman needs to read. In this unique approach to wellness, designed to specifically address the issues that women of all ages face, readers gain a deep understanding of their body and what it needs in order to not just survive but to thrive. Often, we are simply told to eat “healthily” because it is “good for us.” Rarely does a book this beautiful explain the processes of the body, and how they’re all interdependent on each other, while offering real guidance on how we can support ourselves in such succinct and easy to understand language. From over two decades of research, Dr Libby takes all the guesswork out of being a woman, providing insight into the questions that plague western women around the world, including: Why some people emotionally eat and how to end this, why our skin breaks out and why we might lose our hair, how estrogen and progesterone affect our bodies and our minds, why we believe ‘if I don’t do it, it won’t get done’, why we store body fat in a certain place and what we can do about it, why our liver is the number one organ to look after, and why we have big conversations at night, rather than at breakfast. With interactive worksheets, real-life examples and step-by-step guides to making life-transforming changes, Women’s Wellness Wisdom is both practical and inspiring. Illuminating how women can thrive in today’s fast-paced modern world, and filled from front to back with Dr Libby’s unique blend of nutrition, biochemical science and emotional care, this beautifully illustrated book is truly the definitive guide for women about looking after their bodies, minds and hearts.
