We all want a life worth living. The search for ‘the good life’ has been a driving force for humanity throughout history. But what exactly is a ‘good life’? For too long psychologists have concerned themselves solely with helping the mentally unwell – those who suffer from depression, anxiety and a range of other mental health problems. However, psychologists have recently begun to focus on mental health, not just mental ill health, on happiness as well as unhappiness. Drawing on the latest research in the area of positive psychology, and using a practical, down-to-earth style with real-life stories, Shane Martin teaches us how to bolster our mental health in order to be as happy and resilient as we can be. In Your Precious Life, he guides us along the path to optimal mental health and inner happiness, focusing on: Rational thinkingCompassionGratitudeSavouringResilienceCommunity and belongingMindfulnessThe importance of a healthy body – diet, exercise and sleep Martin believes that everyone can use the tools of psychology to improve their happiness. We should not wait for a crisis before learning to address this crucial part of our well-being, but take proactive steps towards mental wellness. Your Precious Life will appeal to anyone who wants to ensure that the one life we have is a good one.

Will you sleep through the revolution? Or do you want to wake up and reclaim your one wild and precious life? We live in truly overwhelming times. The climate crisis, political polarisation, racial injustice and coronavirus have left many of us in a state of spiritual PTSD. We have retreated, morally and psychologically; we are experiencing a crisis of disconnection - from one another, from our true values, from joy, and from life as we feel we are meant to be living it. Sarah Wilson argues that this sense of despair and disconnection is ironically what unites us - that deep down, we are all feeling that same itch for a new way of living. this one wild and precious life opens our eyes to how we got here and offers a radically hopeful path forward. Drawing on science, literature, philosophy, the wisdom of some of the world's leading experts, and her personal journey, Wilson weaves a one-of-a-kind narrative that lights the way back to the life we love. En route, she leads us through a series of 'wildly awake' and joyful practices for reconnecting again that include: - Go to your edge. Do what scares you and embrace discomfort daily. Use it to grow into your Big Life. - #buylesslivemore. Break the cycle of mindless consumption and get light with your life. - Become a soul nerd. Embrace poetry, deep reading, art, and classical music to light up your intellect. - Get 'full-fat spiritual'. How to have an active practice - beyond the 'lite' 'rainbows and unicorns' - and use it to change the world. - Hike. Just hike. Walking in nature reconnects us with ourselves, and with our true purpose. - Practise wild activism. If you can get 3.5 per cent of a population to participate in sustained, non-violent protest, change happens. We create our better world. The time has come to boldly, wildly, imagine better. We are being called upon, individually and as a society, to forge a new path and to find a new way of living. Will you join the journey?

Pain and poverty paved the way to peace and spiritual prosperity in the life of the author, Patricia Ann Boyes, ordinary person. In this memoir, she takes us from a three-year-old child witnessing her mother's brutal beatings, to a seventeen-year-old suffering the throes of childbirth; through a bitter marriage breakdown, and on to new love, entrepreneurship, and a battle with cancer. This memoir will not compare with that of the rich and famous or with the extraordinary drama of the Malalas of the world, but it may compare in some ways with the lives of other ordinary people who also have a story to tell, lessons to learn, and obstacles to overcome. It's a story of believing God's promises and learning life's lessons. Someone once said, "Don't die with your words or your music still in you." The author has taken this advice.
