Experience the Therapeutic Benefits of Emotional Well-Being

“A practical handbook for handling our honest emotions—the messengers of our inner self”—Soolooka, Author of I Believe in Me 

Learn to value your own feelings and listen to your inner needs. Emotionfull is a collection of tips, reminders, and advice from a mental illness and low self-esteem survivor. 

Focus on your emotional well-being. We can get overwhelmed by our own emotions. Though there’s nothing wrong with what we’re feeling, we all struggle with how best to face stress, anxiety, sadness, and even excitement sometimes. Emotionfull helps us process difficult emotions, one by one, and allows us the space to focus on them in a way that’s healthy. Author Lauren Woods, creator of The Positive Page platform, has struggled with mental and emotional health; she writes with experience and kindness to help you overcome the daily challenges these struggles bring.

Listen to your needs. Being emotionally healthy is just as important as our physical health. Once we accept and process our emotions, we are better able to understand what our inner needs are. Emotionfull is a reminder to look inside and address how we feel, not just how we look. Full of tips, advice, and self-care ideas, it shows us ways to improve self-esteem and prioritize our emotional wellness and mental health. 

Inside you’ll find:

  • Methods for working through overwhelming feelings
  • Stress-free ways to have difficult conversations about mental health
  • Self-care tips focused on emotional well-being
  • How to recognize self-worth and improve self-confidence

If you were helped by books like True You, You Can Do All Things or It’s OK to Feel Deeply, then you’ll love Emotionfull.

The Anxiety Getaway

By

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety Relief

“This book is filled with solid, practical advice to defeat anxiety, based on scientifically backed techniques and years of clinical experience.” ―Helen Odessky, PsyD, author of Stop Anxiety from Stopping You

Many of the available resources for managing anxiety are based on opinion rather than science. Dr. Craig April, founder of The April Center for Anxiety Attack Management, relies on the latter. By employing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), he helps readers overcome fear for the anxiety relief they desire.

Stop being anxious for nothing. Assuming the role of victim when it comes to anxiety can make us feel trapped and convince us that we have no control in getting better. However, Dr. April has found that in most of its forms, anxiety is not a mental health disorder. In fact, anxiety relief begins by facing our fears. Using a stripped-down, no-nonsense approach to anxiety, Dr. April takes CBT techniques and tackles anxiety at the root: false fear messages.

Dare to overcome fear. Fear is a factor in all lives, whether we feel it plays a significant role in controlling us or not. Lucky for us, it is also something that can be faced. By recognizing anxiety as a result of false fear messages, we become better equipped to manage it. An expert in  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for anxiety relief, Dr. April uses over twenty years of experience to help readers face their fears and overcome their anxiety.

In this indispensable book on anxiety relief for adults, you’ll discover:

  • Effective anti-anxiety methods used at The April Center for Anxiety Attack Management
  • A non-victim approach to help you take back control and reclaim your life
  • Tips and practical tools to overcome fear

In a world so often filled with distressing news and bewildering violence, being “human” often gets a bad rap. Rejoice in everyday reasons to smile with positive thoughts and enjoy the gift of life.

Take a walk on the bright side and celebrate life. In Glad to Be Human: Adventures in Optimism, award-winning writer Irene O’Garden reminds us of the radiance of human existence. From kitchens to gardens to busy city streets, all around, in your everyday life, you can find plenty of reasons to feel gratitude and hope and find joy.

It’s the little things. In this collection of essays, O’Garden explores a wide range of practical reasons to celebrate life―just look closely around you. In one essay, she describes the simple pleasure that comes from clearing clutter off a desk―in another, the thrill of visiting the Statue of Liberty. The book’s grand finale is the Pushcart Prize-winning essay, “Glad to Be Human.”

One simple message. Through contemplation, meditation and with literary style, Glad to Be Human invites you to view life through a positive lens. From small, daily activities to journeys overseas, O’Garden has a knack for finding beauty and meaning in all life’s adventures―even in our deepest pain and suffering―helping all of us feel glad to be human.

Explore the Amazing Bond Between Humans and Animals

#1 New Release in Biology of Reptiles & Amphibians and Taoism

Turtle lover and Daoist Monk Yun Rou shares a beautiful depiction of the wonders of the world—and a powerful plea for preserving our planet—in this fictional philosophical tale.

Turtle Planet, a unique work of philosophical fact and fiction by ordained Daoist Monk Yun Rou, explores the wonders and suffering of the natural world through the eyes of eighteen exotic turtles. This beautifully written book deeply explores the intimate bond between humans and animals―the wisdom they teach us, the wounds they can heal, and the role we play in their destruction.

A call for environmental conservation and political and social justice. Daoist Monk Yun Rou received his academic education at Yale, Cornell, and the University of California and was ordained a Daoist monk at the Chun Yang (Pure Yang) Taoist Temple in Guangzhou, China. Drawing on fifty years of loving and husbanding turtles, from the car-sized giant Leatherback turtle to the Central Asian tortoise, Monk Yun Rou sounds the alarm of what climate change, global extinction, human intervention, and environmental devastation really mean to their worlds and to ours.

See the world through the eyes of turtles.  An informational glossary and description of each turtle at the end of the book is provided as a bonus gift to readers.

If you have read and learned from books such as H is for HawkThe Soul of an Octopus, or Ishmael; you will be moved by Turtle Planet, a must for any reader who loves nature, cherishes animals, and celebrates ideas. Also read Monk Yun Rou’s Mad Monk Manifesto.
