And Now We Have Everything

Meaghan O'Connell
Authors:
Meaghan O'Connell

Operating Instructions for the Millennial set: a fiercely honest account of becoming a mother before you're "ready."If you feel totally alienated by the cutesy, sanctimonious tone of the "motherhood industrial complex," this is the book for you.After getting accidentally pregnant in her twenties, Meaghan O'Connell realized that brutally honest, agenda-less resources on the emotional and existential impact of motherhood were nowhere to be found. In And Now We Have Everything, she offers a brave new perspective on the transition into motherhood. With her dark humor and a hair-trigger B.S. detector, Meaghan addresses the pervasive imposter syndrome that comes with unplanned pregnancy, the second adolescence of a changing postpartum body, the myth that giving birth is a "magical" experience, the problem of sex post-baby, the strange push to make 'mom friends', and the fascinating weirdness of stepping into a new, not-yet-comfortable identity. Addressing the fears and anxieties of Millennial women in an unflinchingly frank, funny, and visceral way, Meaghan fills a void in the discussion on motherhood, identity, what it means to be ready.

The Harvard Medical School Guide to Yoga

Marilyn Wei, James E. Groves
Authors:
Marilyn Wei, James E. Groves

The Harvard Medical School Guide to Yogais a comprehensive guide to understanding an integrated approach to yoga. While there are many yoga books available on the market, most are based on an individual yogis expertise. This book relies on modern medical science to illustrate the benefits of yoga;and offers a practical, easy-to-implement plan. Scientific research and clinical experience have shown that an integrated approach that includes multiple yoga limbs (including breath control, postures, guided meditation, and self-reflective writing exercises) does far more to improve physical and mental health than merely doing yoga exercises. This streamlined 8-week program features user-friendly, step-by-step sequences that are easy to learn and practice at home with minimal equipment. The book also offers poses and sequences targeted to improve arthritis, cardiovascular health, type 2 diabetes, weight loss, sleep issues, chronic pain, neurological disorders, as well as depression, anxiety, stress, and more.

The Gentle Discipline Book

Sarah Ockwell-Smith
Authors:
Sarah Ockwell-Smith

Do you want to raise a well-behaved, happy child but feel that common forms of discipline used today, which focus on rewarding, excluding or punishing children, don't work for your family?In The Gentle Discipline Book, Sarah Ockwell-Smith debunks many commonly held beliefs about punishment and motivation, and provides an alternative approach that will empower you to discipline your child in an effective way and with respect. Gentle discipline is not about mollycoddling your child or being a pushover - it means understanding your child, having realistic expectations of them, and responding to their misbehaviour appropriately. It focuses on teaching and learning, not punishment or rewarding.In her trademark practical style, Sarah offers solutions for coping with the most common discipline challenges, including:- whining and sulking- aggressive and destructive behaviour- not listening and refusal to do things- rudeness and backchat- sibling rivalry- lying- swearing- low self-esteem and a lack of self-confidenceThe advice is appropriate to a wide range of ages, from toddler to teenager, and, if you have been using more traditional form of discipline, it will give you the tools - and the confidence - to change to a more mindful approach.

Authors:
Lynn Rossy

In Mindfulness-Based Intuitive Eating, Rossy provides an innovative and proven-effective program, Eat for Life, to help you slow down, savor each bite, and actually eat less. This unique, whole-body approach will encourage you to adopt healthy eating habits by showing you how to listen to your body's intuition, uncover the psychological cause of your overeating, and be more mindful during mealtime.If you find yourself eating without thinking, because you feel bored or sad, or simply because you've had a hard day, indulging here and there is understandable. But emotional eating can often spiral out of control, leading to obesity, diabetes, and heart problems in the long run. The whole-body program in this book will help you learn how to listen to your body's needs, so that you can stay healthy and happy, without giving up your love for food. In fact, according to a recent study, women in the author's Eat for Life program reported higher levels of body appreciation and intuitive eating and lower levels of problematic eating behaviors than did the wait list comparison group. If you want to lose weight, feel better, and truly enjoy your food, the easy-to-use strategies in this book will show you how-one mindful taste at a time.
