Self Help What Makes You Happy Small changes can lead to big improvements

Fiona Robards 210 x 170 mm | 8¼ x 6¾ in Paperback | 264 pages 978-1-921966-31-6

What do you want most in life? Most people would answer: ‘I just want to be happy.’ Sounds simple, but what does happiness look like? And is the life you lead now bringing you closer to happiness? Many of us have adopted lifestyles that don’t support happiness. We lead lives that are too rushed, too stressed and too focused on things that don’t matter. And our obsession with economic development is destroying the natural environment. We need to rethink our way of life because our unhealthy lifestyles are making us physically and mentally unwell. They’re making us unhappier, not happier. The solutions — doing things that support our wellbeing, finding opportunities to connect with others and supporting the environment we live in — are intrinsically linked. The good news is that many simple, positive, healthy choices and activities promote wellbeing. Fiona Robards is a psychologist — with four Masters degrees — but the things that make her happy are simple: a walk with a friend, a movie, travelling, watching waves rise and fall, kindness. In What Makes You Happy? she looks at ten areas of our life, ranging from finances to relationships, personal style to having fun, and through a series of practical exercises and searching questions guides us down the path to finding our own simple solutions to everyday happiness, so that we can stress less and live calmer, richer lives. 

Happiness is what we all want from life but often find difficult to achieve. This book shows us how to go about it, simply and clearly.

Divided into 10 key life domains, the book can be dipped into as needed or worked through from start to finish.

The combination of searching questions and practical exercises actively involve the reader, enabling them to take control of their own path to happiness.

Written by an expert author, with four Masters degrees, who combines her vast knowledge with an accessible, easy-to-understand writing style.

The Thermogenic Diet Learn how food can do the hard work of weight loss.

John Jones 234 x 156mm/ 9¼ x 6in Paperback, 190 pages 978-1-4679-1138-2

We have always been told that the weight-loss equation is simple. It’s energy in versus energy out. But what happens in-between when the food is digested? The Thermogenic Diet is based on the premise that certain foods take more energy to digest than others. Not only can you burn energy through physical activity, you can also burn more energy by making better food choices. As you eat, food must go through a number of steps to break down, become absorbed, and metabolised. Therefore the energy figures found on food packaging do not adequately account for the energy lost during digestion and metabolism. The Thermogenic Diet will get you started on your weight loss journey by arming you with healthy eating habits to make the most of the thermogenic effect in your body.

Among the issues addressed in School Start are helping your children to deal with anxiety, initiating new friendships and coping when things don’t always go to plan, accepting people have different strengths and weaknesses and that they won’t always be ‘the best’ (or ‘the worst’) at things, dealing with teasing and bullying, and developing resilience.

Michael C Nagel PhD 234 x 153mm/9¼ x 6in Paperback, 248 pages 978-1-921966-02-6

The brain is one of the most complex organs in our body. Its development begins before birth, continues into our twenties, and carries on remodelling itself as we get older. Current research on brain development shows us that the experiences of a child’s first days, months and years have the most profound and decisive impact on the overall development of the brain which influences the nature and extent of adult capabilities. Written by a neurological expert, Nurturing a Healthy Mind takes the available science and translates it for parents in an easy-to-understand and user-friendly format. It explains what brain development processes are happening during the first years of a child’s life from conception to their first day of school in order to help parents provide the best possible environment for healthy child development.

Who Said That First? The curious origins of common words and phrases

Max Cryer 210 x 135mm/8¼ x 5¼in paperback , 320 pages 978-0-908988-91-4 So who said it first? This collection sets out to credit – as far as it’s possible to do so – the people who actually created many familiar terms in common use. For example, poor Ernest Dowson is all but forgotten, but author Margaret Mitchell read his 1891 poem ‘Non Sum Qualis’ and brought one phrase from that poem to the attention of millions. The phrase that caught her eye was ‘gone with the wind’. (In 1867, Dowson also wrote another familiar phrase: ‘the days of wine and roses’.) Written in Max Cryer’s delightfully witty style, Who Said That First? is a wonderful book to dip into or settle a friendly dispute.
