Popular TV and radio personality Wallace Chapman is on a mission. A mission to chill us all out. He's thought a lot about the syndrome of modern life and thinks he has a few answers. Ranging over such subjects as careers, technology, health and well-being,food,sex and relationships, and employing a captivating mix of pop psychology,science, philosophy and humour, Chapman distils the many mixed messages we receive on a daily basis into a self-help book that's not actually a self-help book. For fans of Daniel Kahneman's bestselling Thinking, Fast and Slow, and anyone else feeling the ravages of time-poorness, Don't Just Do Something, Sit There is a profound yet populisttake on considering life as we live it. A balanced life won't happen overnight and if it does, seek help. Because slow living takes time.

Book Description :

According to the Buddha, the path of kindness is the path of happiness. Now Sylvia Boorstein, nationally bestselling author of It’s Easier Than You Think, has taken the 2500-year-old practice of developing the qualities of a compassionate heart—the core of the Buddha’s own practice—and made it accessible to all. Pay Attention for Goodness’ Sake is the first book ever to guide Western readers on the path of the Buddha’s Ten Paramitas, the Perfections of the Heart. Boorstein combines traditional Buddhist teachings and parables with stories from her own life, as well as easy-to-follow meditations, to show how the practice of Mindfulness—paying attention in everyday life—can lead to these perfections that all of us strive for, including Generosity, Morality, Wisdom, Energy, Patience, Determination, and Equanimity. When we take on this practice, Boorstein notes, “our vision becomes transformed. We see, with increasing clarity, the confusion in our own minds and the suffering in our own hearts. . . . And we also see the extraordinariness of life, how amazing it is that life exists.” Boorstein’s lively and practical lessons about everyday generosity, morality, making and mending mistakes, the bliss of blamelessness, and other human concerns and frailties, help to clarify our distractions and connect us with our own goodness, “the part of ourselves that wishes it had done differently.” For Buddhist and non-Buddhist alike, Pay Attention for Goodness’ Sake is a cheerful, inspiring book that offers the possibility of a transformed life.

Book Description :

How can we stay engaged with life day after day? How can we continue to love–to keep our minds in a happy mood–when life is complex, difficult, and, often, disappointing? Bestselling author and beloved teacher Sylvia Boorstein asked herself these questions when she started to write this inspiring new book. The result is her best work to date, offering warm, wise, and helpful ways we can experience happiness even when the odds are against us. As Boorstein has discovered in more than three decades of practice as a professional psychotherapist, the secret to happiness lies in actively cultivating our capacity to connect with kindness: with ourselves; with friends, family, colleagues; with those we may not know well; and even with those we may not like. She draws from the heart of Buddhist teachings to show how Wise Effort, Wise Mindfulness, and Wise Concentration can lead us away from anger, anxiety, and confusion, and into calmness, clarity, and the joy of living in the present. These qualities strengthen our ability to meet encounters of every kind with balance and intelligence, providing us with a grounded sense of true contentment. Happiness Is an Inside Job resonates with the knowledge of a psychotherapist, the compassion of a spiritual teacher, and the wisdom of a grandmother. Boorstein’s vivid stories capture our minds and our hearts, and the simple exercises she suggests can be done while you read. This beautiful book is comforting and reminds us that life is a shared journey, that our hearts truly do want to console and love our fellow sojourners, and that living happily is indeed the best way to live.

Book Description :

I wrote this book to share with you my panic attack experiences, and my personal journey to liberation from this debilitating fear. Our life is a soul journey, and if you're experiencing panic attack it's an integral part of your unique journey. It's a very necessary step you must take for your personal growth, and it's your responsibility to allow this process to unfold. Panic Attack is one of your very own wisdom gates that you are meant to pass thru in your lifetime. Panic attack is a gift for your personal growth, but you have to recognize it. Rather than look at it as a negative, think of it as a positive, and your life will be enriched for it. My book weaves a chronological story of my panic attack episodes from what is called the bewilderment stage through my recovery stage, but it also shares an overlay of my philosophy of life derived as a husband and father of two, a businessman for over twenty five years, and a 70's hippie who lived on The Farm in Tennessee. The book can be read in several hours so it is my hope that it may offer the reader immediate relief from nervous suffering. Each chapter moves forward my journey in discovery and liberation from panic attack.

Morton argues that the chief stumbling block to environmental thinking is the image of nature most writers promote: they propose a new world view, but their very zeal to preserve the natural world leads them away from the "nature" they revere. To have a properly ecological view, Morton suggests, we must relinquish, once and for all, the idea of nature.

Life is more like a marathon than a sprint. Here’s how to stay well conditioned. Bill Butterworth will make you laugh–and learn while you’re doing it! In the opening chapter of this powerful little book, Bill shares with you how, while running his rotund body in a nightmarish 440-yard dash, he learned a great lesson: Life is much more like a marathon than a sprint. The attitudes and actions that result in steady success over the long haul are what make for long-term satisfaction and achievement. To experience this for yourself, you need to understand how to deal with life’s inevitable challenges: ·The “Hazies”–losing sight of long-term goals ·The “Lazies”–lacking the self-discipline to bring life back into focus ·The “Crazies”–allowing life to run out of control Each of these can be conquered by three “clarifying triangles:” setting clear priorities, learning the discipline of endurance, and reaching the finish line through skillful pacing. It all adds up to a succinct and inspiring guide to balancing excellence at work with fulfillment in all of life. Also look for the On-the-Fly-Guide to Building Successful Teams!

Book Description :

“Writing a ‘nuts and bolts’ guide that is genuinely wise, charmingly conversational, and a pleasure to read requires a particular talent, and Jean Smith has proved once again that she has it.”—Sylvia Boorstein, author of Don’t Just Do Something, Sit There The third of Jean Smith’s Beginner’s Guides focuses on the Buddha’s Eightfold Path—the concepts central to practicing the Buddha’s teachings in daily life. The eight steps on the path are: right understanding, thought, speech, action, livelihood, effort, mindfulness, and concentration. Smith explains exactly what the Buddha had in mind, using translations of his own words and then elucidating them for us. Throughout the book are wonderful quotes from a broad range of Buddhist teachers, giving a taste of the very best each of them has to offer. The Beginner’s Guide to Walking the Buddha’s Eightfold Path is a prescription for happiness, not just for overcoming suffering, which is how many people think of Buddhism. Here is a book for Buddhists of every tradition.
