What Makes You Happy?

USD $14.95 Tax Included

Small changes can lead to big improvements

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.

Intuition

USD $13.99 Tax Included

Unlock the Power!

Intuition is something most people would have experienced at one time or another; it’s that gut-feeling or inner voice or ‘sixth sense’. It’s instinctive by nature, independent of rational analysis or deductive thinking. But can we actively develop our intuition and learn how to better utilise it?

Author Dr Cate Howell believes we can, and sets about showing us how in Intuition. The book is divided into three parts. In the first, she explores the nature of intuition from different perspectives, including philosophy and psychology, religion and spirituality. She also looks at the use of intuition in decision-making in the fields of business, health and teaching. The second part of the book is more practical and considers different types of intuition, how to develop your intuition and then use it in everyday life.

Steps explored for developing intuition include meditation, mindfulness, creativity, kindness and service. The final part of the book looks at some issues related to intuition, such as dreams and synchronicity, and how the development of one’s intuition often seems to correlate with an increased sense of peace, purpose and joy in life.

All or Nothing: Bringing balance to the achievement-oriented personality

USD $24.99 Tax Included

In this fascinating and insightful book, clinical psychologist Mike McKinney takes an informed look at the often talked about but little understood phenomenon of the ‘all or nothing’ personality: a personality type that is driven to focus on one task or area of life to the exclusion of all else.

The author looks at how this personality type can form (through, for example, a deep fear of failure, a desire to please others, or childhood expectations that you must ‘always do your best’) and, more importantly, he explores how balance can be brought to the all-or-nothing personality, so that its best qualities can be retained while the potential negatives are mitigated, resulting in a more meaningful and rewarding life.
