    Author: ARON ELAINE N

    How to cope when the world overwhelms you. For those people who:have a keen imagination; are labelled too shy or too sensitive; who perform poorly when being observed even though they are usually competent; have vivid dreams; for whom time alone each day is essential;and find they are quickly overwhelmed by noise and confusion, crowded parties, hectic office life............. this is the book to help them understand themselves and how best to cope in various situations.

    Highly sensitive people are often very bright and creative but many suffer from low self esteem. They are not `neurotics' as they have been labelled for so long. However, high sensitivity can lead them to cease to engage with the outside world.

    The book offers solutions for a happy and fulfilling life. Particularly in the way an HSP perceives his or herself: the book helps to `reframe' past events, such as a difficult childhood, or how they see themselves - ie. shy.

    Particularly strong material for those raising a sensitive child

From learning a new language to climbing a mountain, see how far you can challenge yourself to overcome your fears and self-imposed limitations. Packed with useful tips and tricks from Stoicism, Buddhism, CBT and popular psychology, this book encourages us to face our fears, embrace adversity and leave our comfort zones.

    This book is also a groundbreaking roadmap to finally being your true, authentic self." --Susan Cain, New York Times, USA Today and nationally bestselling author of Quiet Whenever people are nervous about interacting with others, they're told, "Just be yourself!" But that is easier said than done--especially if you also suffer from social anxiety. You might say you're just introverted or bad with people; that you're fine around friends but feel like you can't speak up in a board meeting or a mingling event; or maybe you never would have considered yourselves socially anxious but have recently moved or started a new job, only to become isolated and unsure. But Dr. Ellen Hendriksen proposes a groundbreaking idea: you already have everything you need to succeed in any unfamiliar social situation. As someone who lives with social anxiety herself, Dr. Hendriksen has devoted her career to helping her patients overcome the same obstacles she has. With both familiarity and authority, Dr. Hendriksen talks the reader through the roots of social anxiety and why it endures; how it's wired into our brains and how we can change our brains through our behavior; and how to quiet your Inner Critic (the voice that says, You can't). Using her techniques to develop confidence, ease panic, and relax in the face of uncertainty, you can finally be yourself.

    Title: How To Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy
    Author: ODELL JENNY

    A galvanising critique of the forces vying for our attention - and our personal information - that redefines what we view as productivity and reveals what we've been too distracted to see about ourselves and our world.

    Nothing is harder to do these days than nothing. But in a world where our value is determined by our data productivity, doing nothing may be our most important form of resistance.

    So argues artist and critic Jenny Odell in this field guide to slowing down. Odell sees our attention as the most precious - and overdrawn - resource we have. Once we start paying a new kind of attention, we can undertake bolder forms of political action, reimagine humanity's role in the environment, and arrive at a more meaningful understanding of happiness and fulfilment.

    Far from a simple anti-technology screed, How to Do Nothing is an action plan for thinking beyond capitalist narratives of efficiency and value. Provocative, timely, and utterly persuasive, it shows us how to preserve our inner lives and bring about change in a world that needs this more than ever.

    Author: LAZARUS NORMAN


    We are all living longer. The World Health Organisation predicts that by 2050 there will be two billion people over 60 with 434 million of those over 80 years of age. But there's a catch: the quality of those extra years of life is shockingly poor. Many of us will find ourselves living with diseases and dependent on non-curative drugs and health carers as a result. We are not ageing well nor wisely.

    Dr Norman Lazarus, 84, is an exception. He is an expert on the physiology of healthy human ageing and living proof that our later years can be lived well. Even now, in his eighties, he leads an active and medication-free lifestyle, regularly walking and cycling long distances. Dr Lazarus has now written a remarkable book, with the aim of helping others to stay well for longer.

    The Lazarus Strategy is a part how-to and part manifesto on the art of healthy ageing to guide readers along the path to a more active, productive, independent future and a medication-free life. Norman will show us that our lifestyle choices now will determine how we will age through our golden years and how fast - in the future. The three main factors crucial to keeping healthy are physical activity, food and the mind. Norman explains how each of these affect ageing and how we need to make changes to these areas of our life from the age of 50 and beyond.

    Title: Living Better: How I Learnt to Survive Depression
    Author: CAMPBELL ALASTAIR


    Last Christmas I almost killed myself. Almost. I've had a lot of almosts. Never gone from almost to deed. Don't think I ever will. But it was a bad almost.


    Better to Live is Alastair Campbell's honest, moving and life affirming account of his lifelong struggle with depression. It is an autobiographical, psychological and psychiatric study, which explores his own childhood, family and other relationships, and examines the impact of his professional and political life on himself and those around him. But it also lays bare his relentless quest to understand depression not just through his own life but through different treatments. Every bit as direct and driven, clever and candid as he is, this is a book filled with pain, but also hope -- he examines how his successes have been in part because of rather than despite his mental health problems -- and love.


    We all know someone with depression. There is barely a family untouched by it. We may be talking about it more than we did, back in the era of 'boys don't cry' - they did you know - and when a brave face or a stiff upper lip or a best foot forward was seen as the only way to go. But we still don't talk about it enough. There is still stigma, and shame, and taboo. There is still the feeling that admitting to being sad or anxious makes us weak. It took me years, decades even to get to this point, but I passionately believe that the reverse is true and that speaking honestly about our feelings and experiences (whether as a depressive or as the friend or relative of a depressive) is the first and best step on the road to recovery. So that is what I have tried to do here.

    The Sunday Times Top 10 Bestseller


    From the author of the phenomenal multi-million copy bestseller The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down


    "Hearing the words 'be good to yourself first, then to others' was like being struck by lightning."


    Many of us respond to the pressures of life by turning inwards and ignoring problems, sometimes resulting in anxiety or depression. Others react by working harder at work, at school or at home, hoping that this will make ourselves and the people we love happier.


    But what if being yourself is enough? Just as we are advised on airplanes to take our own oxygen first before helping others, we must first be at peace with ourselves before we can be at peace with the world around us.


    In this beautiful follow-up to his international bestseller The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down, Buddhist monk Haemin Sunim turns his trademark wisdom and kindness to self-care, arguing that only by accepting yourself - and the flaws which make you who you are - can you have compassionate and fulfilling relationships with your partner, family and friends.


    "Even products labelled 'limited edition' are made on a production line with hundreds that are exactly the same. But there is only one you in the world."


    ***


    "Haemin writes beautifully and simply... these vital life lessons resonate deeply and easily"
    Miranda Hart


    "The world could surely use a little more love, a little more compassion, and a little more wisdom. In Love for Imperfect Things, Haemin Sunim shows us how to cultivate all three, and to find beauty in the most imperfect of things-including your very own self"
    Susan Cain, New York Times bestselling author of Quiet


    "Heartwarming, calming and simple. But also filled with wisdom and powerful truths that will teach us to love ourselves first in order to transform our relationships with our loved ones"
    Hector Garcia, author of IKIGAI - The Japanese secret to a long and happy life


    "A wonderful book to accompany The Things You Can See... page by page, he shows you how to reclaim your freedom and your life"
    Professor Mark Williams, author of the bestselling Mindfulness


    "A real treasure. It teaches us that compassion is at the heart of healing . . . starting with ourselves. I highly recommend this book"
    Christiane Northrup, MD, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom


    "You can be the most amazing human being in the world and everyone sees rays of light, love, and genius when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that external admiration doesn't matter one bit. Haemin Sunim teaches you ways to love yourself first, instead of loving the idea of other people loving you. It makes a world of difference"

    Title: Man Down
    Author: RUDD MATT


    'This is the most honest, most revealing - and funniest - exploration of male mental health I have ever read' Adam Kay

    On the surface, men today don't have much to complain about. At work, they still get paid more than women for doing the same jobs. At home, they still shirk most of the unpaid labour. Putting the bins out does not count.

    Beneath the surface, it's a different story. An alarming number of men end up anxious, exhausted, depressed - and very reluctant to admit they are. Even if they do everything that's expected of them in work, life and fatherhood, genuine happiness is still elusive. By midlife, their levels of stress are higher and their levels of wellbeing are lower - and work-life balance turns out to be just a cruel illusion.

    The evidence is clear and ironic: the system set up by men for men doesn't work for men either. It is making none of us happy.

    In Man Down, Matt Rudd takes the long view on this perplexing paradox. Drawing on stories from his own life, and the varied lives of the other men he has interviewed, he goes back to the beginning to consider what makes the modern man - how the seeds of midlife misery are sown in the school playground and cultivated through adolescence and into adulthood. By turns compassionate and provocative, Man Down asks the important question: is midlife unhappiness inevitable? Spoiler alert: it isn't.

    ABC News anchor Dan Harris used to think that meditation was for people who collect crystals, play the pan pipes, and use the word namaste without irony. After he had a panic attack on live television, he went on a strange journey that ultimately led him to become one of meditation's most vocal public proponents.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 the US, 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

    Author: CAMPBELL W. KEITH


    Cut Through the Noise Around Narcissism with the Leading Researcher in the Field

    "Narcissism" is truly one of the most important words our time--ceaselessly discussed in the media, the subject of millions of online search queries, and at the centerpiece of serious social and political debates. But what does it really mean?

    InThe New Science of Narcissism, Dr. W Keith Campbell pulls back the curtain on this frequently misused label, presenting the most recent psychological, personality, and social research into the phenomenon.

    Rather than pathologizing all behaviors associated with the label, Campbell reveals that not only does narcissism occur on a spectrum, but almost everyone exhibits narcissistic tendencies in their day-to-day behavior. Drawing from real-life incidents and case studies,The New Science of Narcissismoffers tools, tips, and suggestions for softening toxically selfish behaviors both in yourself and others. Here you will discover:

    · An exploration of personality disorders connected with and adjacent to narcissism
    · Why minor narcissistic tendencies are common in most people
    · The foundational difference between grandiose and vulnerable narcissism
    · Different psychological models of personality and how they interpret narcissistic behaviors
    · The "recipe" of mental and emotional traits that combine into narcissism
    · How to identify when you're in a relationship with a narcissist and what you can do about it
    · Why the 21st century has seen the rise of a "Great Fantasy Migration" into evermore insular subcultures
    · The connection between narcissistic tendencies and leadership
    · Why "the audience in your pocket" of social media has exacerbated culture-wide narcissistic tendencies

    Though narcissism looms large in our cultural consciousness,The New Science of Narcissism offers many different options for understanding and treating it. With Campbell's straightforward and grounded guidance, you'll not only discover the latest and best information on the condition, but also a hopeful view of its future.

    Title: Our Bodies Ourselves: a New Edition for a New Era
    Author: BOSTON WOMEN'S HEALTH BOOK COLLECTI

    Our Bodies, Ourselves. We are delighted to present Our Bodies, Ourselves-an in-depth look at women''s sexuality and reproductive health, from the first gynecological exam to sexual health in our later years. Since its first newsprint edition published in the early 1970s, Our Bodies, Ourselves (OBOS) has enabled women to learn about their bodies, gain insight from the experiences of other women, and consider how best to achieve political and cultural changes that would improve women''s lives. This completely revised and updated ninth edition, released on OBOS''s fortieth anniversary, covers topics ranging from sexual anatomy, body image, and gender identity to pregnancy and birth, perimenopause/menopause, and navigating the health-care system. This edition reflects the perspective and voices of a wide range of women, and their stories are told through new formats. At our invitation, more than three dozen women of all ages and identities participated in a monthlong online conversation about sexuality and relationships; we found their honesty and forthrightness so compelling that the conversation itself became the foundation of a new "Relationships" chapter. Other new voices include women''s organizations around the world that have created their own resources adapted from Our Bodies, Ourselves. Throughout the book, you will meet members of the Our Bodies Ourselves Global Network and read about their work on issues such as abortion, infertility, HIV education and prevention, and social activism. From distributing posters via canoes in rural Nigeria to setting up interactive websites in Israel and Turkey and reshaping health policy in Nepal and Armenia, their efforts exemplify movement building and the power of voices raised in action. This edition focuses on the core health issues-reproductive health and sexuality-that first brought the Boston Women''s Health Book Collective together. Some topics added over the years-such as nutrition, emotional health, and medical conditions that disproportionately or differently affect women-have been omitted this time, in part because information is now more readily available elsewhere. This has given us room to expand on issues such as reproductive rights, violence against women, and environmental health, which not only are centrally related to women''s sexual health and well-being but also are areas where, despite decades of advocacy and activism, women still face enormous challenges and obstacles that prevent them from leading safe and healthy lives.

    Title: Out of the Woods
    Author: TURNER LUKE


    A fierce, poignant and highly original memoir about sexuality, shame and the lure of the trees


    'A brave and beautiful book, electrifying on sex and nature, religion and love. No one is writing quite like this. I'm so glad Luke Turner exists' OLIVIA LAING, author of THE LONELY CITY and CRUDO


    'Refreshing, frank, edifying, courageous . . . I was quite emotional by the end. Luke Turner is a serious thinker and a unique and important new voice' AMY LIPTROT, author of THE OUTRUN


    After the disintegration of the most significant relationship of his life, the demons Luke Turner has been battling since childhood are quick to return - depression and guilt surrounding his identity as a bisexual man, experiences of sexual abuse, and the religious upbringing that was the cause of so much confusion. It is among the trees of London's Epping Forest where he seeks refuge. But once a place of comfort, it now seems full of unexpected, elusive threats that trigger twisted reactions.


    No stranger to compulsion, Luke finds himself drawn again and again to the woods, eager to uncover the strange secrets that may be buried there as he investigates an old family rumour of illicit behaviour. Away from a society that still struggles to cope with the complexities of masculinity and sexuality, Luke begins to accept the duality that has provoked so much unrest in his life - and reconcile the expectations of others with his own way of being.


    OUT OF THE WOODS is a dazzling, devastating and highly original memoir about the irresistible yet double-edged potency of the forest, and the possibility of learning to find peace in the grey areas of life.

    Title: Overkill: When Modern Medicine Goes too Far
    Author: OFFIT PAUL

    An acclaimed medical expert and patient advocate offers an eye-opening look at many common and widely used medical interventions that are far more harmful than helpful.

    Modern medicine has significantly advanced in the last few decades as more informed practices, thorough research, and incredible breakthroughs have made it possible to successfully treat and even eradicate many serious ailments.

    But while we have learned much that has changed our outlook and practices, we still rely on medical interventions that are vastly out of date and can adversely affect our health. It is an article of faith, for example, that finishing a course of antibiotics prevents the recurrence of illness, that sunscreens block harmful UV rays which cause skin cancer, and that all cancer-screening programs save lives. But do scientific studies back up such beliefs?

    In this game-changing book, infectious-disease expert and Rotavirus vaccine inventor Dr Offit highlights fifteen common medical interventions still recommended and practised by medical professionals, despite clear evidence that they are harmful - including the above examples, as well as the treatment of acid reflux in babies, the lowering of fevers, and the reliance on heart stents and knee surgery.

    By analysing what makes these practices so ineffective and harmful, and by presenting medical alternatives, Overkillgives patients invaluable information to help them ask their doctors better questions and to advocate for their own health.
