The Key to Calm

By Linda Blair

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A five-step programme that takes you beyond mindfulness and gives practical help for dealing with anxiety and stress in everyday life.

Why are levels of anxiety and stress rising faster than ever before? Why has no one come up with a solution that offers true and lasting relief? Why has no one found the key to calm? Based on Linda Blair's years of experience as a clinical psychologist, this book not only answers these questions, but offers solutions to achieve calm and serenity in our everyday life. In five simple and effective steps we learn to:

Stop, Look and Listen - Stop reacting to what's going on 'without', and regain inner balance and focus.

Take Care of Your Best Asset - The best way to adapt to change and solve new problems is to start with the healthiest body and mind possible.

Know Yourself - Discover your talents and possibilities, and learn how to use them to best advantage.

Simplify - Streamline your life so you have the time and energy not only to cope more effectively with everyday life, but also to embrace new challenges.

Reach Out - Understand the benefits of connecting socially, and learn to do so in a way that ensures a sense of safety and meaning.

Linda Blair's proven programme will teach you how to find the balance, purpose and tranquillity you seek and enable you to find calm.

People power works and is changing the world around us. This is a user's guide to activism by one of the UK's biggest names in grass-roots campaigning. Illustrated with lessons from the real world, it is a guide to creating change for anyone who has ever asked themselves 'why hasn't anyone done something about that?'We are taught to believe that only a small group of people in society have the ability to change laws and company policies. That's simply not true any longer - each of is capable of using our experiences to change the world. We just need to use that thing that makes us different, and learn how to channel it. Having worked as a campaigner for the last 11 years, Kajal Odedra of change.org - which is used by 15 million people in the UK - has learned the tricks of the trade that have traditionally been held in circles of power, and believes that everyone should know how to speak up and be heard. Her mission is to show people how to use their voice to make their community, politicians and CEOs take notice.

The State Of Affairs

Esther Perel
Authors:
Esther Perel

***NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER*** Is there such a thing as an affair-proof marriage? Is it possible to love more than one person at once? Why do people cheat? Can an affair ever help a marriage?Infidelity is the ultimate betrayal. But does it have to be? Relationship therapist Esther Perel examines why people cheat, and unpacks why affairs are so traumatic; because they threaten our emotional security. In infidelity, she sees something unexpected - an expression of longing and loss. A must-read for anyone who has ever cheated or been cheated on, or who simply wants a new framework for understanding relationships.'Esther Perel does nothing short of strip us of our deepest biases, remind us of our purpose in connecting as lovers, and save relationships that might otherwise sink into the sea-all with even-handed wisdom, fresh morality, and wise prose. Thank heavens for this woman.' - Lena Dunham'Beautiful. A brilliantly intelligent plea for complexity, understanding, and - as always - kindness.' - Alain de Botton'She's the guru on relationships... she's the first person I ask for advice' - Cara Delevingne'Wisest sex therapist we ever did meet. Her new book, THE STATE OF AFFAIRS, proposes a new perspective on infidelity' - GRAZIA'This is a must-have for all married couples and has completely changed my thinking.' - SUNDAY TIMES STYLE
