Gratitude―The Key to a Happy Mind

“Do this simple thing every day; wake up, be grateful, be kind and help others. If you do this, your life will be filled with joy." –His Holiness, The 14th Dalai Lama

Follow the advice of Buddhist leader Thich Nhat Hanh, “With all I have experienced in my own life, the power of gratitude stands above everything else. In your mindfulness practice, use gratitude until it becomes your way of life.” In this book discover how gratitude is your key to a happy mind.

Buddha’s teachings. Buddha had a lot to say on the subject of gratitude, including citing it as one of the four keys to the Gate of Heaven. Why is this? Perhaps the sheer simplicity of gratefulness is a key, as it is available to all of us at any time. Even in the midst of stress and chaos, we can find plenty to be glad about, and The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude starts your journey towards Zen and gratefulness.

Count your blessings. According to Buddha, “You have no cause for anything but gratitude and joy.” Being thankful is one of the most powerful tools we humans have to attain peace of mind and happiness. Take time each day and count your blessings. This can be done with a prayer or mindfulness mediation, whichever works for you. This lovely, uncomplicated approach featured in The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude may be life-changing.

Building a happy mind. Studies show―and experts agree―that gratitude is a key component of our happiness. People who are grateful about experiences and celebrate triumphs instead of focusing on losses, tend to be happier. Gratitude helps transform our fears into courage, our anger into forgiveness, our isolation into belonging, and another’s pain into healing.

Inside find:

  • Hands-on exercises
  • Inspiring quotations
  • Space for notetaking and journaling
  • Thought-provoking questions

If you liked books such as No-Nonsense Buddhism for Beginners or Chakra Healing, you will want to read The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude.

Searching for That Self-Help High

“Inspiring and hilarious, Zen Bender perfectly captures our misguided quest for perfection….” — Patricia Velasquez, actress in Arrested Development and The Mummy, author of Straight Walk, supermodel, and UNESCO Artist for Peace.

Yahoo Finance Best Business Books of 2019 and #1 New Release in Yoga, Zen Philosophy, and Humor

Craving a quick fix. When the recession turned her life upside down, Stephanie Krikorian had to reinvent her life...and fast. She started ghostwriting self-help books for women. Between writing and researching she realized that everywhere she looked there was AFOG (another freaking opportunity for growth). Soon she wasn't just writing each book; she was living them. This was the start of a ten-year zen bender of dieting, dating, journaling, meditating, and Marie-Kondo-ing on a quest for that ultimate self-help high.

Fifty and fabulous. Stephanie Krikorian spent her forties trying all of the dating hacks to find love and respect, all of the diets to build self-esteem in a new body, and all of the spiritual guidance to become centered through self-care. On the brink of turning fifty she realized that being better wasn't what she craved; it was something else altogether.

A Self-confidence book for women. For anyone tired of promises to change everything in just thirty days, this book is a breath of fresh air. Zen Bender is the story of one woman's journey to radical acceptance, with some questionable advice along the way. A witty, moving, insightful story, the woman behind bestselling celebrity self-help books shares her story of being hooked on the self-help fix for a decade before learning that all the self-help in the world won't help you trust your gut.

Readers who enjoyed self-confidence books for women like The Universe Has Your BackThe Self-Love Experiment, or The Gifts of Imperfection; will love Zen Bender: A Decade-Long Enthusiastic Quest to Fix Everything (That Was Never Broken).

Decompress Your Stress

Anxious Art is for readers and doodlers seeking relief from anxiety and stress through meditative, creative processes.

What if we took our stress and used it to create art that brings us peace?

A 2016 study at Drexel university that examined the effects of creative activity on reducing levels of the stress hormone cortisol discovered that “45 minutes of art making…resulted in statistically significant lowering of cortisol levels.” We all know cortisol is the stress hormone, so grab a pen or pencil and let the meditations and writing prompts in this mindfulness journal take you on a calming journey to a healthier, happier mind.

T.S. Eliot once said, “Anxiety is the handmaiden of creativity,” but if he had this creative journal during times of worry, he surely would have said creativity was the handmaiden to peace. With this friendly, calming companion, you will find that you are much more present in the here and now.

A unique guided journal that will calm and inspire: When used as self-expression, creativity can allow us to take part in what psychologists call “sublimation,” or the transformation of negative or socially unacceptable impulses into socially acceptable or even beautiful creations. Anxious Art offers inventive prompts, art projects, and affirmations to inspire artistic activities that distract from feelings of distress and anxiety. As you experience this transformative guided journal, you will work with:

  • Lyrical affirmations that build self-confidence and reduce fear
  • Therapeutic writing exercises that root you in the present and spark joy
  • Doodling that calms your emotions
  • Guided breathing exercises that bring you into the present moment

Running Can Be the Best Therapy for Depression

“Nita's brave, honest book imparts hard-won lessons on using running to combat depression.” ―Scott Douglas, contributing writer for Runner's World and author of Running Is My Therapy

#1 Best Seller in Running & Jogging, Exercise & Fitness, Depression, and Bipolar Disorder

An unforgettable story of tenacity, running therapy, beating depression, and the companionship of a dog. The Dog Writers Association of America awarded Nita Sweeney a Maxwell Medallion for excellence in writing about the Human/Animal Bond for her memoir.

Running is my therapy. Before she discovered running therapy, Nita Sweeney was 49 years-old, chronically depressed, occasionally manic, and unable to jog for more than 60 seconds at a time. Using running, Nita discovered an inner strength she didn’t know she possessed, and with the help of her canine companion, she found herself on the way to completing her first marathon. In her memoir, Sweeney shares how she overcame emotional and physical challenges to finish the race and come back from the brink.

It's the best therapy for depression. Anyone who has struggled with depression knows the ways the mind can defeat you. However, it is possible to transform yourself with the power of running. You may learn that you can endure more than you think, and that there’s no other depression therapy quite like pavement beneath your feet.

Depression Hates a Moving Target is a witty and poignant story of rediscovery. Whether you’re born to run or just looking for rebirth:

  • Be inspired by the powerful story of one woman―and her dog
  • Cheer on Nita as she endures the challenges of a marathon and a mind in turmoil
  • Discover the power of running to overcome obstacles and boost your mental health

"Uplifting and loaded with practical wisdom on how to come out of a crisis with more, not less." ―Suleika Jaouad, The New York Times, "Life, Interrupted" columnist

#1 Best Seller in Diseases & Physical Ailments

Fierce Joy is the incredible finding your self story of one woman who learned to shed perfection and find joy in every day.

Learn to find joy in every day. Susie Rinehart seemed to have it all―two beautiful kids and a loving husband, a job where she was respected as a leader, and medals as an ultramarathon champion. Then she found out that a tumor on her brainstem threatened to take away her voice…and her life. With so much at stake, Susie had to rethink how she wanted to live. 

Brave is better than perfect. So many of us grew up believing that achievements would lead to love and acceptance. Just ace that test, win that race, get that job, and happiness will follow. But it’s hard to arrive at happiness when we’re motivated by fear. When she faced losing everything, Susie learned to choose joy over fear, and brave over perfect.

Find strength in your voice. This incredible story is about healing, rediscovering yourself, and becoming a warrior in a new way. For anyone who has lost their voice in the never-ending struggle to please others, Susie offers hope. In each section of the book she offers a series of takeaways―lessons she learned when life forced her to slow down and step back.

  • Learn how to overcome fear and choose joy
  • Stop trying to be perfect and choose to be brave
  • Learn to slow down and enjoy life
  • Become a warrior for healing and happiness

Become Who You Were Always Meant To Be

Readers of The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins or Believe Bigger by Marshawn Evans Daniels will love Hatch Leap Soar.

Transform into your best self. Transformation is at the heart of Hatch Leap Soar, which reveals principles to help you become your best self. LaToyia Dennis likens the process to that of a baby bird inside an egg, ready to… Hatch. Before you can begin to change and start realizing your potential, you are in your comfort zone inside your shell. When you begin the process of hatching, you're defying the norm, pressing past your fears and breaking free.

Discover real freedom. Once you've hatched, you can see possibilities. You are now open to achieving your goals, to being who you want to be. You start to think, "Oh my gosh, as soon as I get out of here I can do this," because now you can see it. But in order to get out of your shell, you have to make a... Leap. This could be a leap in a completely different direction than you've ever gone before. You have to move out of your current position, out of whatever comfort zone or shell you are in. In Hatch Leap Soar, LaToyia shows you just how important it is to believe that you are better freed from your shell than you are stuck inside.

Reach true success. In order to reach your full potential, you must move toward it. Things won’t come to you if you're sitting in your shell. Opportunities and change won’t happen if you are standing still. You have to leap or jump or move forward. A bird never learns to fly by staying in the nest. A bird has to leap out to learn to… Soar. And Hatch Leap Soar will teach you how to do just that. Once you learn to soar, you can fly high and free. You can reach your potential.

Hatch Leap Soar is the ultimate self-help and motivational book for women everywhere who are asking themselves, "Who am I?" After reading this book, you will:

  • Build confidence
  • Live a life of true freedom and success
  • Love who you are

Rediscover Love and Desire after Sexual Assault

Readers of The Body Keeps the ScoreThe Deepest Well and Trauma Stewardship should read Want: Recovering Desire after Sexual Assault.

Have the courage to heal. We know, increasingly, how common and devastating sexual violence is for women, but we don’t always talk about how survivors can recover from the trauma and return to desire, sexuality, trust, and pleasure. Want is the story of how Julie Peters did just that—and how you can, too.

Move past the fog of trauma.  In the years after the assault, Julie was in what she calls the fog of trauma: the colorless, tasteless experience of barely getting through the day. No one—not counsellors, support groups, or other survivors—could give her any advice about how to find the desire that could bring her back to joy, intimacy, and connection. She had to make it up on her own. In Want, Julie tells the story of getting from the devastation of trauma to living a full life in eight sometimes challenging, often bumbling, and occasionally delightful steps.

Experience hope, healing and recovery. We have plenty of stories about the helplessness, frustration, and vengeful feelings that can follow trauma. Culturally, we have started a conversation about these experiences, and we’re all confused about what this all means for our relationships with each other. We need stories of hope, healing, and recovery. Survivors of assault, if you've been thinking to yourself, "I thought it was just me," Julie is here to show you that you are not alone. Your loved ones may not know how to support you, but they can learn more about your experiences and how to walk alongside you through this book, just as you can learn how to recover from the trauma you've experienced. Want offers a window into one person’s experience of recovery—plus the happy ending we all need to know is possible after trauma.

8 to Great

By

Purpose ─ Passion ─ Success!

8 to Great, revised!

Positive attitude for positive changes: This groundbreaking and practical book offers a simple, yet powerful, 8-step process for taking charge of your life and achieving your dreams, using author MK Mueller's unique formula for "positive attitude". Positive attitude is everything for achieving greater happiness, health and success, yet no one, until now, has given the world a formula that is simple enough to remember and use on a daily basis.

Mueller's "FGH" formula: FGH ─ Forgiveness of the past, Gratitude for the present and Hope for the future. In 8 to Great you will learn how Mueller's five "High-Ways" address the most common stumbling blocks to using FGH:

  • High-Way 1: Get the Picture. It reminds us how to clearly see our dreams happening and "think it till we feel it."
  • High-Way 2: Risk. Once the picture is clear, we must "run to, not from" and face our fears in order to move forward.
  • High-Way 3: Full Responsibility. Rather than a burden, this is the key to freedom as we discover that we are the only problem we have and therefore, we are the solution.
  • High-Way 4: Feel All Your Feelings. For those suffering with depression or rage, this chapter unfolds amazing insights into how Mad and Sad balance each other.
  • High-Way 5: Honest Communication. When you're ready to stop getting defensive in arguments and be done with triangulation in the workplace, Mueller shows the way with down-to-earth examples of her clients' success stories.

New level of self-esteem and well-being: In 8 to Great you will learn how the High-Ways provide a step-by-step process that helps you find greater happiness and success. The fact that Mueller has also created a widely-used curriculum for high schools based on her concepts is testimony to the fact that her methods are simple without being sugar-coated, and powerful without being pompous. 8 to Great will take you from wherever you are in life and provide a springboard into a new level of well-being and joy. Whether for yourself or someone you love, 8 to Great is an investment that is sure to bless and bliss your world.

Recover the joy of creative self-expression. As kids, many of us had vibrant imaginations and our lives were full of creativity.

Writing can be your best self-care therapy. Most of us, at some point in our lives, lose something we truly love.

In fact, the best thing to do in these times is write.

Heart, Sass, & Soul is not a journal, it’s a method for writing freely that will change the way you live. Learn to:

  • Overcome self-doubt and develop a new creative identity
  • Transform dark times into something beautiful
  • Find moments for healing yourself without judgement
  • Become empowered with uninhibited self-expression

The Changemaker Mindset

By

Want to Make a Difference and Change the World?

First you must develop a changemaker mindset. Whether your goal is to lead a self-determined life, position your company for the future, or be a successful part of a team, external change starts with internal transformation.

Learn from a change management expert. Nicknamed “Mr. Change” by his clients, German bestselling author, global keynote speaker, and economist Ilja Grzeskowitz inspires people to develop a changemaker mindset and supports organizations to establish a change culture based on purpose, diversity, and strong values. He regularly travels the world to research future trends and developments in the field of change management.

Personal development and relationships are key to success. In a time when workplaces are becoming more digital and more automated, our mindsets and our personal relationships determine whether we succeed in tomorrow’s markets. We all have one shot to make a lasting impact. Innovators with the changemaker mindset know how to spot that opportunity when it comes and make it matter.

The human success factor. In coming years, the human success factor will determine winners and losers. All business adventures start with a focus on the self. When you know who you are and develop a deep sense of confidence in yourself, you’ll have the flexibility to roll with the punches and succeed.

With The Changemaker Mindset, you’ll master the three Ps of personal development:

  • Purpose. Reconsider what motivates you and find your non-negotiable core principles.
  • People. Build a strong inner circle of peers, because nobody wins alone.
  • Persistence. Develop the confidence to take action, navigate setbacks, and implement change.

Readers who liked The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey, Leading Change by John Kotter, or The Innovator's Dilemma by Clayton Christensen will love this new approach to effective business management through personal development.

Your Life is Your Prayer

By

Inspirational and Spiritual Prayer Guide

If you liked Help, Thanks, Wow by Anne Lamott or Anxious for Nothing by Max Lucado, you’ll love Your Life is Your Prayer.

Prayer can point your life in the right direction—or the wrong one: Whatever you’ve got going on in your life is what you’ve been praying for—sometimes consciously, but often unconsciously. If you want something different in your life, you must pray a different prayer. Your Life is Your Prayer by BJ Gallagher and Sam Beasley will show you how to do just that.

Everything you do is prayer: You may not realize it—many people don’t—but the decisions you make throughout the day, the attitudes you adopt, the conversations you have, the way you respond to other people, and the thoughts you think are all prayers. The food you choose to eat is a prayer, the way you spend your money is a prayer—even the way you drive is a prayer! We are constantly communing with the Divine, even in our most mundane activities. And our prayers are always answered in the affirmative: “Yes.”

The Universe will give you what you're praying for: Whatever you’re thinking about (and therefore praying about) will manifest in your life. If you are worrying, "I don’t have enough money," the Universe will say ‘Yes, you don’t have enough money.’ If you’re constantly lamenting, "I don’t have a man in my life," the Universe will respond, ‘Yes, you don’t have a man.’ If you frequently complain, "I’m fat," the Universe will answer, ‘Yes, you’re fat.’ Your thoughts and words are prayers, and the Universe always gives you what you’re praying for.

Your Life is Your Prayer will show you how to change your life by changing your prayer:

  • Learn how to stop complaining
  • Discover how to focus on what you do want, not what you don’t want
  • Learn how to make your prayers positive and affirming—to get more of what you want in your life
  • Discover how, by constantly choosing new thoughts and new conversations, you will literally create a new life for yourself
