Karl Ryberg

Discover how quality light can enhance your life for optimum health and well-being and help you truly thrive.This fascinating and accessible book offers the definitive word on optimizing the light to which we are exposed for health and wellbeing and explains how making small tweaks to our lighting environment can make us healthier and happier.As humans, we have a fascinating relationship with light, and often shape our lives around it - we seek it out and revere it, and celebrate it with wonder - whether it's fireworks, a beautiful sunrise or sunset, or the allure of a glowing campfire, symbol of storytelling and togetherness. Light unites and inspires us.The light that surrounds on a daily basis us has a huge impact on our brains, our mood and our mental health and yet, on the whole, we tend to pay it very little attention. Many of us wake up in the dark, turn on the lights, go to work and sit in front of a computer screen for hours on end, passing our days oblivious to the poor-quality lighting that surrounds us. We complain of headaches, of low mood, of poor vision and of getting the blues, or SAD, in the winter, but rarely do we truly consider the effect that light may be having on our lives.In this brilliant book Karl Ryberg explains how light affects our eyes, our health and our wellbeing and inspires us to bring more quality light into our daily life. He gives us the scientific information we need to understand the subject, combined with practical advice on maximizing our exposure to natural light, selecting the best lighting to use at home, along with advice on minimizing the effects of light pollution and blue light from screens and smartphones, working with - not against - our body clocks (including light rituals for better sleep) and gives advice on the use of light therapy and practicing eye yoga to encourage your eye muscles to work effectively.This illuminating book highlights the importance of bringing quality light into your life to help your brain function better, your mood stabilize and your health improve. When you understand the importance of using good light you have the potential to enhance your life every time you flip the light switch.(P)2018 Hodder & Stoughton Limited

Meditation For Fidgety Skeptics

Dan Harris
Authors:
Dan Harris

ABC News anchor Dan Harris used to think that meditation was for people who collect crystals, play Ultimate Frisbee, and use the word "namaste" without irony. After he had a panic attack on live television, he went on a strange and circuitous journey that ultimately led him to become one of meditation's most vocal public proponents.Here's what he's fixated on now: Science suggests that meditation can lower blood pressure, mitigate depression and anxiety, and literally rewire key parts of the brain, among numerous other benefits. And yet there are millions of people who want to meditate but aren't actually practising. What's holding them back?In this guide to mindfulness and meditation for beginners and experienced meditators alike, Harris and his friend Jeff Warren, embark on a cross-country quest to tackle the myths, misconceptions, and self-deceptions that stop people from meditating. They rent a rock-star tour bus and travel across eighteen states, talking to scores of would-be meditators, including parents, police officers, and even a few celebrities. They create a taxonomy of the most common issues ("I suck at this," "I don't have the time," etc.) and offer up science-based life hacks to help people overcome them.The book is filled with game-changing and deeply practical meditation instructions. Amid it all unspools the strange and hilarious story of what happens when a congenitally sarcastic, type-A journalist and a groovy Canadian mystic embark on an epic road trip into America's neurotic underbelly, as well as their own.

Beyond Reasonable Doubt

Gordon Smith
Authors:
Gordon Smith

Gordon Smith is the medium's medium who outstanding gifts are recognised by prominent sceptics and which have been tested in laboratory conditions at Glasgow University, with astonishing results.But usually when we try to assess the claims of psychics and mediums or evidence of supernatural phenomena we are examining events taking place outside the controlled conditions of the scientific laboratory. In this new book Gordon Smith argues that most suitable standards we can apply when trying to decide whether or not it is reasonable to believe such claims are the same standards we usually use to assess disputes in human affairs - the standards of the law court.As a leading medium Gordon Smith is part of an 'apostolic succession' of mediums that goes back through famous mediums like Albert Best, Helen Duncan and DD Hume to the start of Spiritualism modern times in American in the mid nineteenth century. In this book he examines the historical evidence, admitting fraud where he finds it, but showing that great weight of testimony proves the reality of these supernatural and spiritual phenomena 'beyond reasonable doubt'.As leading barrister Maria Ahern writes in her foreword: 'I have assessed the evidence in this book. Just as I would in a trial. There is credible evidence from various unconnected sources all giving evidence that points the same way. The evidence has been collated by a credible source; Gordon Smith is widely acknowledged as a gifted medium and has provided many with evidence of one of life's great unanswered questions'. She advises the reader: 'Look at the evidence, assess it fairly, allow for any sensible and appropriate doubt and reach your verdict'.

'Absorbing . . . an intelligent and clear-eyed account of much that goes on in our country' Sunday Times'Wry and readable' GuardianGetting to grips with Great Britain is harder than ever. We are a nation that chose Brexit, rejects immigration but is dependent on it, is getting older but less healthy, is more demanding of public services but less willing to pay for them, is tired of intervention abroad but wants to remain a global authority. We have an over-stretched, free health service (an idea from the 1940s that may not survive the 2020s), overcrowded prisons, a military without an evident purpose, an education system the envy of none of the Western world. How did we get here and where are we going?How Britain Really Works is a guide to Britain and its institutions (the economy, the military, schools, hospitals, the media, and more), which explains just how we got to wherever it is we are. It will not tell you what opinions to have, but will give you the information to help you reach your own. By the end, you will know how Britain works - or doesn't.

Hazel Wallace

As someone who juggles many jobs between being a doctor, a personal trainer and an author, I understand how difficult it can be to prioritise food and eating well. I wanted to create a collection of beautiful recipes that are not only nutritious and great tasting, but super quick and simple to make, using only a handful of ingredients. The Fuel Up section is designed for just that - it is where you will find my recipes for grab-and-go breakfasts, lunches on the run and dinners that take less than 30 minutes to satisfy you after a long day at work! However, I truly believe that when we do have the time to cook a meal, bake some bread and sit down with friends and family to share some food, we should totally embrace those moments. This is where the Power Down section comes in: for when you're not in a hurry, I have included my chosen recipes for lazy weekend brunches, family dinners, breads and teatime treats. This is a cookbook that will help you fall in love with cooking and improve your relationship with food, so that you approach it not only as a source of nutrients, but also happiness, satisfaction and health.Hazel xIncludes more than 100 recipes PLUS:- 10 'no recipe recipes' for emergency snacks + meal prep hacks for maintaining a healthy lifestyle when you're busy- an introduction to Hazel's five store-cupboard saviours, including 10 ways to cook with each one- a key for special dietary requirements including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and low sugar- nutritional advice covering the basics of nutrition, how to meet your 5-a-day and special nutritional requirements for a plant-based diet- features on how to live well for optimum health, with information on sleep, meditation, mindfulness and mindful eating

Kintsugi

Tomás Navarro
Authors:
Tomás Navarro

Discover how to embrace the imperfect with Kintsugi. Apply this ancient principle to your life and you will learn how to repair yourself, rebuild your life and love your flaws.Japanese Kintsugi masters delicately patch up broken ceramics with gold adhesive, leaving the restoration clearly visible to others. Psychologist Tomás Navarro believes that we should approach our lives with the same philosophy. Everyone faces suffering, but it is the way in which we overcome our troubles, and heal our emotional wounds, that is key. We shouldn't conceal our repairs, they are proof of our strength.Navarro presents real solutions to genuine problems that he has seen in his professional practice. His anecdotes demonstrate that it is possible to transform adversity or setbacks into a strength. His psychological understanding and perspective will leave you feeling courageous and prepared, should you experience misfortune, be it heartbreak, a job loss or bereavement.Often practised alongside Ikigai (or the art of finding one's life purpose), Kintsugi shows you how happiness can be found again, often against all odds. A painful experience can in fact make you a more determined individual, ready to face the world with optimism.'Kintsugi, which translates as "golden joinery", is the latest lifestyle trend promising to transform our lives.' - The Telegraph
