            The bestselling author of How to Escape from Prison, prisoner-turned-psychologist Paul Wood on developing the mental fitness to take on life's challenges Getting and staying mentally fit, just like getting and maintaining a high level of physical fitness, involves hard work, effo...rt, and consistency. Our level of mental fitness determines how effectively we can flourish through adversity, realise our potential, and be happier with our lives - regardless of what the universe has in store. We all know about mental stress (or we think we do). We've definitely all experienced it, and none of us like it. Yet this is not a threat to be avoided. Mental stress is perfectly analogous to physical stress: it is the mind's way of telling us that what we are attempting to perform is challenging our resource. This is a catalyst for growth, and a sign we are pursuing our potential. When we experience stress, we have a choice: we can heed that signal and give up - after all, we're meant to stay in our psychic comfort zone all the time, right? - or we can recognise the discomfort we are feeling is simply nature's way of enabling us to rise to the occasion. In Mental Fitness you will learn how to: Increase your mental fitness, just as you would increase your physical fitness Get closer to your potential by working proactively to maintain your mental fitness Experience the right level of stress (this is what makes us get fitter) Cope effectively for longer before you get fatigued or exhausted (it doesn't mean you don't feel the struggle) Pay attention to the indicators of fatigue to avoid burnout and unnecessary misery

            A mother of small children avoids a murderer in broad daylight. A young dad is able to grieve for his lost baby - using a song. And it saves his marriage. What if there were parts of our minds which we never use, but if awakened, could make us so much happier, connected and alive...? What if awakening those parts could finally solve the conflicts and sufferings we all go through? From the cutting edge, where therapy meets neuroscience, world-renowned author, psychotherapist and educator Steve Biddulph shows us how to reach into the deep feelings beneath our feelings, and how doing so can guide us to a more awake and free way of living every minute of our lives. In Fully Human, Steve Biddulph guides us through the four-storey mansion of our unexplored mind, with tips on how to open each level up to the sunlight, allowing us to live equally in all its beautiful rooms. Drawing on deeply personal stories from his own life, as well as those of his clients, and from the frontiers of thinking about how the brain works with the body, this culmination of a life's work uncovers how we can all be more alive, more connected. More Fully Human. From the bestselling Australian author of Raising Boys.

            ** Pre-order the most important book you'll ever read about the second half of your life now. ** We are all apprentice old people. More and more of us are living to a very great age. But how do we give those we love, and eventually ourselves, a chance to be older as happily and h...ealthily as we possibly can? Dr Lucy's book looks at answers, to questions big and small, and helps us understand that long life is something to be celebrated and embraced. Most situations, she tells us, are solvable. Is it normal to find you're falling out of love with your partner of many years, who is disappearing into dementia? * When does 'fiercely independent' turn into 'badly behaved'? * How do you navigate the near impossible discussions around resuscitation, intensity of treatments, power of attorney? * How do you get doctors to listen? * Should your mother be taking seven different medicines? * Are we all doomed to an incontinent future? * Should Dad be driving, and if not, who can stop him? * What does a good care home look like? This practical book, full of warmth, humour, philosophy, joy and real-life stories, is by a doctor who has worked her entire career as a geriatrician, caring for people who have complicated problems and who need answers to the delicate questions that arise as we get older. In the end, it comes down to finding a way to talk about it all with the people we love as well as the professionals. Only then, perhaps, can we make a better life for the older people in our families and communities and, ultimately, for ourselves.
