The Sleep-Deprived Teen

Why Our Teenagers Are So Tired, and How Parents and Schools Can Help Them Thrive (Healthy sleep habits, Sleep patterns, Teenage sleep)

By Lisa L. Lewis

An Eye-Opening Parenting Guide for Better Teenage Sleep

“In this timely book, Lisa L. Lewis underscores why sleep is so vital for adolescent well-being and resilience and offers detailed, actionable tools for bringing about change.”—Arianna Huffington, founder & CEO of Thrive Global

#1 New Release in Teen Health and Sleep Medicine

In The Sleep-Deprived Teen, parenting journalist Lisa L. Lewis provides parents with the roadmap for more (and better) sleep for their teens—and perhaps even for themselves.

Pick up this actionable guide for parents of exhausted teens. Teenagers are tired, strapped for time, and often asked to wake up far earlier than they should due to school start times. In The Sleep-Deprived Teen, Lisa L. Lewis, who helped spark the first law in the nation requiring healthy school start times for adolescents, has written a reader-friendly book for parents who want to help their fatigued teens and tweens sleep well.  

Learn the science of why teenage sleep matters and how sleep changes during the teen years. Poor sleep affects mental health, athletic performance, and academic success. It contributes to adolescent depression, anxiety, and even drowsy driving. On the flip side, when teens are well-rested, they’re happier, healthier, and more emotionally resilient. 

In The Sleep-Deprived Teen, you’ll find:

  • The science of why sleep matters and how it changes during the teen years
  • A synthesis of the research, including tips and strategies to promote healthy sleep habits and help teens avoid poor sleep patterns
  • An essential primer on technology, and a look at how gender, sexual identity, socioeconomic status, and race and ethnicity can affect teenage sleep

If you’ve read books like Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety, Generation Sleepless, or Inconvenient Sleep, then The Sleep-Deprived Teen is for you.

Make Every Move a Meditation

Grow by Using Exercise as Meditation

Praise for her past work includes “A great narrative on how moving your body can actually transform your brain! ”—Richard C. Davis PhD, BCN, Psychologist and Brain Trainer

#1 New Release in Sports Health & Safety, Cycling, Sports Psychology, and Walking

In Make Every Move a Meditation, learn how to find freedom using the mind-body connection as you transform movement into a powerful practice of mindful movement.

Exercise can be meditation. What do you think of when you hear the word meditation? A quiet room filled with monks? An Instagram influencer? What about moving meditation? Yoga? Tai Chi? For too long, meditation in books has focused on specific periods of meditation, rather than mediation through fitness or daily activities. What if lifting weights, dancing with your love, or walking across a room counted? What if you could use exercise as meditation? What if you could make every move a meditation?

Connect with the present moment in each movement. In Make Every Move a Meditation, award-winning author, meditation leader, and mental health advocate Nita Sweeney shows readers that fitness can be mindfulness. She teaches readers how to bring meditation and mindfulness into any activity by incorporating centuries-old techniques. Studies show that both exercise and meditation reduce anxiety, stabilize blood pressure, improve mood and cognition, and lead to a deeper self-relationship and wisdom. Movement is medicine, and meditation is medicine. Let’s combine the two with exercise as meditation.

Inside Make Every Move a Meditation, you’ll learn to:

  • Turn exercise into a meditation tool and use exercise as meditation
  • Make any activity, even walking through the house, a mindful practice
  • Enjoy the benefits of meditation while getting fit

If you like meditation books and best sellers such as Think Like a Monk, Practicing Mindfulness, or Breath, you’ll love Make Every Move a Meditation.

Courage Doesn't Always Roar

By

Discover Your Inner Courage

“Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.'" —Mary Anne Rademacher

Written initially as part of a longer poem and featured in a gallery show in 1985, these words by Mary Anne Rademacher defining courage have traveled the globe.

Defining courage in a beloved quote. The quote has been featured in ceremonies of all sorts and included in sports and network news broadcasts. Oprah has included it in her magazine and journalists include it in “top ten” lists across many disciplines and categories. And, it is among the most beloved quotes on cards, posters, journals, and gift books.

Bravery comes in many forms. Rademacher insists in her book that we overlook opportunities for growth and personal celebration by shrugging off courageous acts of perseverance with, “I just did what I felt I had to do.” Courage shows itself in many ways from having the courage to heal, to change habits, to learn and begin anew, or even to speak up for yourself.

Defining courage with daily inspirations. This daily companion for women, men, or anyone who wants to change for good, and live a bolder, more courageous life may be the perfect addition to the start of your day or the key to letting go and ending your day right. Featuring an introduction from courage specialist, Candace Doby, Courage Doesn't Always Roar begins as an invitation to recognize all of the ways courage, and the associated risk, show up on ordinary days. 

Inside you’ll find:

  • Keys to finding and defining courage in your everyday life
  • 180 entries covering all aspects of courage, like: resilience, thresholds, choices, grace, and more
  • Mental health-friendly inspirations meant to shape the way you think about courage
