"Highly recommended!" - Guillaume Deront, Country Manager, Gleam Futures

We’re all told to study hard in high school but none of us are ever taught HOW to study, let alone how to balance the increasing workload and demands of teenage life.So many students feel anxious, stressed and overwhelmed at the thought of starting high school because they think it means they are going to be given so much homework they will feel like they’re drowning. They feel a huge pressure to succeed, that they neglect other areas of their lives, which makes life more stressful and their grades actually suffer! But what if I told you that you don’t have to fall into this trap? That you can LOVE high school, form amazing friendships, grow your confidence, excel academically, feel proud of your achievements and at the same time, feel 100% supported! You don’t have to sacrifice your life to get through high school and I am going to show you step-by-step exactly how to do it and become your most organised, productive, motivated and confident self! My grandmother, who is full of wisdom but also fiery like the Mediterranean blood coursing through her veins, shared something with me that I always keep in mind, especially as I wrote this book. One day, when I was feeling overwhelmed, she ask me, “Jessica, how do you eat an elephant?” Then she answered, “One bite at a time.”

This is exactly what I do in The High School Survival Guide. I help you focus on each area of your life one step (or bite) at a time, from setting up the ideal study space, organising your study schedule and strategically revising for exams, to building your confidence, tackling study-stress and anxiety, avoiding burnout, and setting effective goals!

This book is for you if:

Whether you want to improve your grades, stress less, get organised, re-gain your confidence, or boost your motivation and productivity, The High School Survival Guide will teach you how to get the MOST out of your high school experience.

Inside, you'll learn:
  *  How to identify which study techniques work best for YOU
  *  How to increase your productivity

  *  How to improve your focus during class

  *  How to avoid burnout and manage study related stress and anxiety

Achieve Your Goal in 66 Days

Create new habits—and stick with them: Routines can be hard to establish. Often, our goals require us to make difficult changes in our daily lives. This daily journal by cutting-edge speaker and bestselling author Matthew Mockridge serves as a “training partner” to help us create and firmly integrate healthy routines into everyday life.

Find passion through practice: We don’t need to find our true passion before we commit to a consistent routine. As readers of the 66 Day Journal will learn, it is only through maintaining regular habits that true passion emerges. When we work hard to become good at something, such as healthy eating, maintaining a regular sleep schedule, or exercising regularly, we’ll find that our passion for the topic grows.

Ask quality questions, have a quality life: If we aren’t asking ourselves the important questions—“What am I proud of? What could I have done better?”—then maintaining healthy habits is harder than ever. This guided journal walks us through the difficult questions we should be asking ourselves every day. The carefully constructed questions combine mindfulness, positive psychology, and proven strategies for increased productivity to help you stay on track.

Dive into Matthew Mockridge’s 66 Day Journal and learn how to:

  • Break down overwhelming “marathon” goals into 66 achievable mini goals
  • Set a goal using the SMART theory (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-bound)
  • Visualize where you want to be and work to get there

If you’ve enjoyed titles such as The High Performance PlannerMy 66-Day Challenge Habit Tracker and Goal Planner, and Hello New Me, then you’ll love Matthew Mockridge’s 66 Day Journal: A Guided Journal for Creating New Habits.

Our Words Restore Us

Using Your Words to Heal

A holistic approach to recovering from trauma: Creative writing is increasingly becoming a go-to method for trauma recovery. There is great power in the written word, and even more so when those words are our own. Journaling provides a cathartic release of emotions because it allows us to not only process past experiences but also reflect on how we’re feeling in the present moment. In this way, writing is one of the most easily accessible self-care practices.

Give voice to what has been silenced: Healing from trauma can be a slow and painful process, especially for sexual trauma survivors, who are often shamed into keeping their experience to themselves. This companion journal to Jen Cross's book Writing Ourselves Whole is a space to put the pain on a page, and in doing so, release the hold it has on us and restore our bodies and minds.

Creativity as a tool for change: Trauma and violence leave a distinct mark on our lives, one that is not easily erased. Writing on our own or with a community or group can be an extremely transformative process for creating change both within ourselves and socially. It encourages discussions about mental and emotional health that lead to finding more approaches to healing.

Jen Cross has worked with sexual trauma survivors for over fifteen years and founded an organization that is devoted to creating spaces for survivors to write and talk about their experiences. In this self-help journal, you will find:

  • A 60-day guided journey to healing from your experience
  • Sixteen writing exercises that gently prompt writers deeper into their experiences and into renewal
  • Follow-up readings, additional exercises, and suggested uses for your writing

If you’ve worked through books such as Start Where You AreHealing the Wounded Heart, and Present, Not Perfect then Our Words Restore Us will provide further support and restoration for your healing process.
