Everyone accepts the importance of physical health: isn't it just as important to aim for the mental equivalent?

Modern life places us under immense stress; it can be really hard to feel calm, content or open to new experiences. Here psychotherapist Philippa Perry demonstrates that it is possible to become a little less tortured and a little more fulfilled. She describes how our minds work, and then takes us through a number of exercises designed to strengthen our resilience, bolster our sense of perspective and increase our creativity. This book is at once a brilliant explanation of our minds and a profoundly useful guide to facing up to the many challenges life throws our way.

    " Felt that a lot of the information on here I already knew (does that mean I'm sane?). But I could see it having a lot of benefit to someone who is dealing with a lot of stress or other issues of the sort. Recommend to someone new to the ideas of self-observation, sanity, and stress-management etc. "

    " Solid advice presented in a useful manner for those already somewhat comfortable with mindfulness tech and CBT. Sometimes you need to be reminded check in with yourself. I appreciated the author's light tone. It's just life. "
