Happy Money

Zen philosophy for a happier and more prosperous life

By Ken Honda

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Follow the zen path to happiness with money, based on the Japanese bestseller which has sold 1 million copies!

Look around you - what do you see? You may discover to your surprise that the people who are most at peace with money are the ones who walk nimbly between having too little and having too much. They have found a balance between indulgence and austerity; between success and happiness; between motivation and inspiration; and between any number of other poles we tend to think of as either/or choices, but which in reality are simply posts on either side of a doorway through which we must pass.

For many of us the subject of money is unavoidably stressful. Managing our personal finances is complicated, time consuming and often, particularly in the slow countdown to pay day, dispiriting. The good news is that in Japan - where a Zen approach to life is more widely practiced - a pathway to a better relationship with money is being carved, by Ken Honda.

This beautifully written book will reinvent the way you see your personal finances. You will come to understand that money flows like water and arrives like a guest. You'll rethink your own attitudes and examine the way they were shaped by beliefs about money you were taught as a child. When we heal the fear and anxiety we have about money, we successfully achieve prosperity and peace.

Take the zen path to financial security and happiness.

Walk With Your Wolf

Jonathan Hoban
Authors:
Jonathan Hoban

Nature is our greatest healer. It's time to start walking and reclaim the wildness in all of us.When did you last take a walk? Not a stroll to the shops, or to the pub, but a walk that got you energised, stimulated your senses, allowing you to de-stress? If the answer is that you'd love to walk, but don't have the time, there really are more reasons to get outside than you might think.When we walk we find the space to process our feelings and we begin to have the courage to be vulnerable and honest with ourselves. Walking awakens the intuition that helps us face up to our difficulties and walk alongside them, enabling us to find positive solutions to our problems. Our ancestors knew all about movement - they walked across the planet, understanding nature and learning to respect and work in harmony with it. Written by a London-based therapist, Walk with your Wolf is part memoir, part self-help and part reflection on the connection we must re-establish with our natural, intuitive selves if we are to live healthy, fulfilling lives. Offering practical advice and exercises on how to walk and think as a method of confronting difficult emotions, this book will allow you to reconnect with your intuition, confidence and power.

The New Childhood

Jordan Shapiro
Authors:
Jordan Shapiro

In The New Childhood, world-renowned global policy and education pioneer Jordan Shapiro provides a hopeful counterpoint to the fearful hand-wringing that has come to define our narrative around children and technology. Drawing on groundbreaking research in economics, psychology, philosophy and education, The New Childhood underscores how technology is guiding humanity toward a bright future in which children will be able to create new, better models of global citizenship, connection and community.Dividing the book into four sections: Self, Home, School and Society, Shapiro offers concrete, practical advice on how to parent and educate children effectively in a connected world and provides tools and techniques for using technology to engage with kids and help them learn and grow. He also draws on his own experience as a father of two sons, which helps bring the narrative to life.He compares the current moment to other great technological revolutions in humanity's past and presents entertaining micro-histories of cultural minutiae: the sandbox, finger painting, the family dinner and more. Most importantly, The New Childhood paints a timely, inspiring and positive picture of today's children, recognising that they are poised to create a progressive, diverse, meaningful and hyper-connected world that today's adults can only imagine. 'Timely, essential, and thought-provoking, The New Childhood is the must-read parenting guide for raising 21st century, digitally driven kids. Instead of raising a white flag and giving in to social media and the Internet, Jordan Shapiro tells parents how to embrace technology, stay involved in their children's lives, and prepare them for their future. Read it! I promise you'll rethink your parenting. I couldn't put it down.' - Michele Borba, EdD, author of UnSelfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed In Our All-About-Me World

Fed Up

Gemma Hartley
Authors:
Gemma Hartley

A ground-breaking exploration of feminism's most buzzy topic.Gemma Hartley wrote an article in Harper's Bazaar in September 2017 called 'Women Aren't Nags - We're Just Fed Up', which instantly went viral. The piece, and this book, is about 'emotional labour', i.e. the unpaid, often unnoticed work, done by women, that goes into keeping everyone comfortable and happy. Fed Up tackles the hard-hitting issues surrounding emotional labour: the historical underpinnings and roots in feminism, the benefits and burdens of this kind of effort, and the specific contexts where emotional labour, otherwise known as the 'mental load', plays a major but undervalued role, including relationships, work, sex, parenting, politics and self-care.Dubbed as the next feminist frontier, emotional labour couldn't be more relevant to these times we're living in. Fed Up is a must-read for those who want to harness the power of emotional labour and create a more connected, equal world.

Authors:
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
