Anna Yusim
Authors:
Anna Yusim

Over the past 15 years, psychiatrist Dr. Anna Yusim has made a startling discovery that flies in the face of most modern medical teaching, including her own. Her patients' primary complaints, ranging from anxiety to depression to sexual dysfunction, often coincide with spiritual neglect--an all too common problem in Western cultures that champion intellectual development over spiritual care. Medical research is now substantiating what Dr. Yusim has known to be true for many years: spirituality is a powerful path to healing. Drawing from the best in Western medicine (and her training at Stanford, Yale, and NYU), as well as teachings from Kabbalah, Buddhism, and South African shamanistic traditions, Dr. Yusim has developed a program that marries empirical science and spirituality for true healing. Using the techniques Dr. Yusim has used to help over 1,000 individuals realign with their higher purpose--authenticity, empowerment, meaning, and connection--FULFILLED tunes readers in to the voice of their soul and teaches them how to live happier, more fulfilling lives. Filled with practical wisdom, interactive exercises, and fascinating research, and integrating the best of Western medicine with Eastern philosophy, FULFILLED will appeal to skeptics and seekers alike, and to readers who are looking for more meaning, joy, and happiness in their lives.

The Upside of Downtime

Sandi Mann
Authors:
Sandi Mann

Are we living in an age where we are more boredom-prone? Or are other people boring us? Or could we be that boring person?!In our current information age, we are constantly connected to technology, and have so many varied ways to spend our leisure time that we should all surely never know what boredom feels like. Yet, boredom appears to be on the rise; it seems that the more we have to stimulate us, the more stimulation we crave. In a quest to relieve our boredom, we engage in dangerous risk-taking - from extreme sports to drugs to gambling to anti-social behaviour, or we overindulge in shopping or eating. The Upside of Downtime explores the causes and consequences of boredom in the fast-paced twenty-first century. Parents are desperate to keep their children entertained during every waking moment, the education system is geared towards interactivity, and attention spans are dropping as we use multiple devices at all times. But the world of work can be increasingly repetitive and routine, and we are losing the ability to tolerate this everyday tedium.Using Sandi Mann's own ground-breaking research into boredom, this book tells the story of how we act, react and cope when we are bored, and argues that there is a positive side to boredom. It can be a catalyst for humour, fun, reflection, creativity and inspiration. The radical solution to the 'boredom problem' is to harness it rather than try to avoid it. Allowing yourself time away from constant stimuli can enrich your life. We should all embrace our boredom and see the upside of our downtime.

Stuff That Sucks

Ben Sedley
Authors:
Ben Sedley

Each of us has thoughts that are painful at times; sometimes the pain is sadness, sometimes worry or anger or shame or grief or some feeling that you don't even have words for. If you are a young person struggling with your emotions, you do not want to be told that 'everyone feels like that' or that 'you will grow out of it'. You want to feel that your emotions are valid and that the person offering help truly understands how painful life can feel at times. With a strong emphasis on validation and compassion, Stuff That Sucks encourages you to accept your emotions rather than struggling against them. It also shows how to reconnect with what is really important to you, giving you the tools to help clarify your personal values and take steps towards living a life where those values can guide you in your day-to-day behaviour.

Creatures of a Day

Irvin D. Yalom
Authors:
Irvin D. Yalom

What makes life worth living? What can we do to lead meaningful lives? And how do we confront our inevitable end? In his long career, eminent psychotherapist and author Irvin Yalom has pressed his patients and readers to grapple with life's two greatest challenges: that we all must die, and that each of us is responsible for leading a life worth living. In Creatures of a Day, he and his patients face the difficulty of these challenges. Although these people have come to Yalom seeking relief, recognition, or meaning, he and they discover that such things are rarely found in the places where we think to look. Like Love's Executioner and Yalom's other writing, Creatures of a Day provides an intelligent, compassionate, yet still unflinching look at the human soul and all the pain, confusion, and hope that go with it. The power of these stories is amplified by Yalom's reflections on his own life as he reckons with its inevitable end. Suffused with humor, great artistry, and a profound humanity, Creatures of a Day lays bare the necessary task we each face, each day, to make our own lives meaningful.
