A Be Yourself Guide for Teen Girls

#1 New Release in Teen & Young Adult Maturing, School & Education, Bullying Issues, Dating & Intimacy

In this book of short daily meditations and essays, Amanda Ford, a young adult herself, offers stories, information, and advice on all the important issues facing young women today: boys, dating, drinking, self-respect, self-love, fights with friends, dealing with parents, and more.

Support for young women as they navigate one of the most confusing and challenging times of their lives. When Amanda Ford emerged from her tumultuous teenage years, she saw the need for a guide to help girls learn to listen to their inner voices and think for themselves. Be True To Yourself is the big sister Amanda never had―and always wanted to be. It provides the encouragement and guidance she wished, as a teenage girl, that an older sister had given her, as well as stories and advice that she would have loved to share with a younger sister during her own teen years.

Your daughter, granddaughter, niece, or young friend will learn to listen to her heart with this coming-of-age guide. Girls will find comfort, encouragement, and insight in these pages, along with suggestions for articulating and confiding their feelings, fears, and frustrations. They will learn more about so many important topics introduced during adolescence, such as:

  • How to love yourself, boost your self-confidence, and receive compliments well
  • How to determine your own values, be true to yourself, and follow through on your promises
  • How to cherish your friends and family―even when they’re getting on your last nerve

Practical Mindfulness

Learn Calmness, Contentment, and Coping Skills

Practical Mindfulness is the one book I recommend to my patients, even when they don’t believe they want to start meditating." ―Lisa Goldstein, MD―Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist

Master the nuts and bolts of meditation, without the crystals and granola. This book is a no-nonsense, no-incense training guide to the life-changing benefits of mindfulness.

Training exercises that work. Practical Mindfulness approaches mindfulness and meditation from a hands-on, how-to, irreverent perspective–appealing directly to smart readers curious about meditation. By applying Dr. Sazima’s training routines, learn to spend more time in real engagement with the world. Cultivate a deeper appreciation of experiences, from the everyday to the extraordinary, and live your life more fully, wisely, and joyfully.

A practical approach to finding “home.” We all search for that safe, comfortable feeling of peace of mind–our inner “home.” When we face challenges–economic crisis or a life-threatening health problem–we can realize with blinding clarity there is no sustainable outside solution. Those without a more developed interior awareness can suffer stress, anxiety, and depression. Our real home, a place we can always return to no matter what, is actually inside of us. We’re practically there.

Meditation training from an expert. Dr. Sazima is a board-certified psychiatrist, educator of family doctors-in-training at Stanford’s Family Medicine Residency, and experience meditator and meditation teacher. He is also a survivor of a rare bone cancer who used the powerful practice of meditation to navigate his medical crisis. Now, he is on a “pay it forward” mission to help us gain a practical understanding and mastery of mindful awareness, and to show us why and how meditation works.

Readers of books such as 10% HappierThe Untethered SoulWherever You Go, There You Are; or Buddha’s Brain, will love Practical Mindfulness.

Sustainable Minimalism

By

The Aspiring Minimalist’s Guide to Living Consciously and Contributing to a “Greener” Tomorrow

“This is the perfect book for people that want to find a realistic roadmap to sustainable living.” ―The Holistic Millennial

Eco-minimalism is a hot-button issue right now, and for good reason. Living a life with less can be the key to saving our precious planet.

Break the consumption cycle. There’s so much to do, and way too much to buy. Whether it’s through late night TV ads, social media, or other sources of influence, we are addicted to buying and then storing things. Sometimes we consume with no regret and other times we realize that we’re doing more harm than good to our wallets and our homes. It’s a constant cycle―one that many are longing to break. Who wants their hard-earned money to go toward something that soon ends up in a landfill?

A guide to eco-minimalism with a plan that is realistic. Manufacturing "stuff" exploits Earth's precious (and finite) resources. And then there's the harsh reality of where it all goes. Our discarded possessions ultimately head to landfills and contribute to environmental pollution, releasing greenhouse gases during breakdown and decomposition. Sustainable Minimalism is the solution. Empower yourself to incrementally incorporate the tenets of sustainable minimalism into your home and life. Learn to master the easiest tasks first and build upon your successes―a practical and stress-free process. Now that’s sustainable!

A blueprint for sustainability and stress management:

  • How to gain greater mental clarity and increase your free time with fewer possessions
  • Environmentally friendly ways of decluttering and organizing
  • Ways to improve your financial stability, while going green at the same time
  • How to get organized and operate a zero-waste home

If you enjoyed books like Zero Waste HomeThe Minimalist Home, or The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, you’ll love Sustainable Minimalism.

The Art of Stopping

By

Life Is A Race and With So Many Responsibilities It Can Feel Overwhelming

“An elegant, powerful, and simple tool for finding serenity. Just what the world needs right now.” ―Richard Carlson, author of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff

We are always on the go. Balancing work, family, friends, and everything in between is a routine of running and never stopping─a cycle that can be tiring. We forget the beauty of the smaller moments and sometimes we forget ourselves.

Stopping is a gift to yourself. Knowing when to breathe and regain a clearer vision of yourself and your surroundings helps give you a fresh perspective and an inner balance meant to help you feel in control of the bigger things.

Who are you? What are your true priorities? Your responsibilities may have taken over and are preventing you from living to your fullest potential. Dr. Kundtz gives you insight into key questions you should be asking.

Stop whatever you’re doing and enjoy the sunrise. Big things can grab your attention but don’t forget to turn around and find the serenity in stillness─the peace in a deep breath, and the happiness in remembering who you are.

With this valuable guide learn to:

  • Connect with the spiritual aspects of your life
  • Practice mindfulness and reduce stress
  • Acknowledge when it becomes too much and take a step back
  • Use proper coping tactics to create healthier habits

If you enjoyed books like A New EarthThe Untethered Soul, or The Road Less Traveled, then you’ll love How to Be Still When You Have to Keep Going: The Art of Stopping.

Giving Grief Meaning

By

A Grief and Trauma Recovery and Wellness Guide

"Such a wise, gentle book, born of great loss, on healing, grief and transformation."─Anne Lamott, American novelist and non-fiction writer

Finalist 2020 Indie Book Award for Mind, Body and Spirit

How inspired qualities and affirmations helped one mother honor her loved one, cope with grief, and give grief meaning.

Help through the mourning process using self-healing methods. How do you make sense of loss and tragedy? After the sudden and devastating loss of her infant daughter, Lily Dulan (a marriage and family therapist, psychotherapist and certified yoga teacher) meditated, prayed, and ruminated on the only thing she had left–her baby girl’s name. In Lily’s courage to address and move through her pain, she developed a cross pollination of proven psychological modalities, 12-step wellness tools, spiritual healing applications, meditations, and ancient yoga. She calls this self-help process “The Name Work”. In her heartfelt memoir, Lily shares her healing journey and her method for unleashing the power in names and giving them special meaning to help move through the grief process in a thoughtful and transformative way.

What’s in a name? Meanings! The Name Work method teaches you how to assign special meaning and qualities to the letters in names–a deceased loved one’s or your own–and how to create positive affirmations for each letter’s attribute. It is a tangible and personal self-healing method for whatever obstacles arise; a unique, new wellness tool for healing and self-discovery.

The Name Work also includes:

  • Affirmations, self-guided questions, meditations, and practices
  • An A-Z dictionary of qualities to help create your own affirmations
  • Life hacks for addictive behaviors and moving though trauma and loss
  • A first-hand account of the author’s personal healing journey
