Brain Body Diet: 40 Days to a Lean, Calm, Energized, and Happy Self

The multiple New York Times bestselling author and Harvard-MIT educated women’s health expert delivers a revolutionary 40-day program to reconnect the brain and body to prevent and reverse the myriad symptoms and diseases afflicting millions of women.

Do you struggle to lose weight or to fall and stay asleep at night?
Do you feel lethargic and a depressed?
Do you endure irregularity or other digestive problems?
Do you want to feel better and happier and to maximize your health and longevity?

Dr. Sara Gottfried has the answer. Your health problems, she reveals, are in your head—caused by a malfunction in the connection between your brain and your body. Brain health is a powerful indicator of overall health and well-being. While our thoughts can affect our physical health, what we do to our body also has a lasting impact on our brains. When you ignore your brain-body symptoms, you raise your risk of serious cognitive decline, which leads to chronic health problems. It’s a vicious cycle, but it can be broken, Gottfried argues. In Brain Body Diet she shows how brain body health is the key to reversing a myriad of chronic symptoms—empowering you to live up to our potential and achieve the lasting health you desire.

The relationship between the body and the brain is necessary to function at our best today and for the rest of our lives. Designed for the female brain—which is different from the male brain—her breakthrough protocol will help you lose weight, get off harmful prescription medications, boost energy and mental functioning, and alleviate depression and anxiety in less than six weeks. Filled with incredible success stories, the most up-to-date scientific research, and the rich insights that are the hallmarks of her previous bestsellers, Brain Body Diet will completely change the way you look at your life and help you achieve total body health.

The Mayo Clinic Guide to Stress-Free Living

Have you ever driven several miles without noticing anything on the road, or read a page in a book without registering any of it? Do the day’s worries and disappointments crowd your mind as you’re trying to fall asleep at night? Do you feel stressed much of the time and aren’t sure how to find peace? In this book, Amit Sood, M.D., M.Sc., a Mayo Clinic specialist in stress and resiliency, reveals how the mind’s instinctive restlessness and shortsightedness generate stress and anxiety and presents strategies for living a more peaceful life.

Develop deep and sustained attention
Practice gratitude, compassion and acceptance
Live a meaningful life
Cultivate nurturing relationships
Achieve your highest potential

All of these concepts are weaved into a practical and fun journey that has been tested in numerous scientific studies, with consistently positive results. Take the first step to discover greater peace and joy for you and your loved ones.

The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom

The bestselling author of The Righteous Mind draws on philosophical wisdom and scientific research to show how the meaningful life is closer than you think

The Happiness Hypothesis is a book about ten Great Ideas. Each chapter is an attempt to savor one idea that has been discovered by several of the world’s civilizations–to question it in light of what we now know from scientific research, and to extract from it the lessons that still apply to our modern lives and illuminate the causes of human flourishing. Award-winning psychologist Jonathan Haidt, the author of The Righteous Mind, shows how a deeper understanding of the world’s philosophical wisdom and its enduring maxims–like “do unto others as you would have others do unto you,” or “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”–can enrich and even transform our lives.

Dodging Energy Vampires: An Empath’s Guide to Evading Relationships That Drain You and Restoring Your Health and Power

Highly sensitive people —or empaths —see life through the eyes of compassion and caring. They were born that way. As a result, they carry a tremendous amount of inner light. But they’re also the favored prey of “vampires” who feed off empaths’ energy and disrupt their lives on every level —physical, emotional, and financial.

In Dodging Energy Vampires, Christiane Northrup, M.D., draws on the latest research in this exciting new field, along with stories from her global community and her own life, to explore the phenomenon of energy vampires and show us how we can spot them, dodge their tactics, and take back our own energy. You’ll delve into the dynamics of vampire-empath relationships and discover how vampires use others’ energy to fuel their own dysfunctional lives. Once you recognize the patterns of behavior that mark these relationships, you’ll be empowered to identify the vampires in your life too.

In these pages, Dr. Northrup opens up a toolbox full of techniques you can use to leave these harmful relationships behind; heal from the darkness they’ve cast over your mind, body, and spirit; and let your own light shine. In the end, you may find yourself healthier, happier, wealthier, and more vibrant than you ever believed possible.

Reaction-Based Self-Defense for Life and Death Situations

In a street fight, a combat situation or even in competition, you don’t always have time to think. Therefore, you must also learn to react. This is the premise for reaction-based martial arts training. When presented with a life or death situation in which you fear for your safety or the safety of your loved ones, time is not a luxury and YOU are not the one who decides which technique or techniques you will use. Instead, it is your opponent who will dictate the technique or techniques you will you use by the energy and the way they present themselves to you. Also, no one technique will work on everyone. For instance, you can’t launch a reverse punch to the chin of someone whose chin towers 6 feet above you. However, you can use targets-of-opportunity that the opponent presents to you. Martial arts is a process and not an end. After earning my black belt, I knew that my journey had just begun, and that there was still so much more to learn. In this book you will learn about the importance of reacting and pressure points as well as chi, which is recognized in Chinese culture as the common energy of the cosmos as well as facing an opponent larger than yourself and learning how to amass the knowledge needed to give yourself the edge in critical situations and more.

Why You Are Who You Are: Investigations into Human Personality

To understand the roots of personality is to understand motivations and influences that shape behavior, which in turn reflect how you deal with the opportunities and challenges of everyday life. That’s the focus of these exciting 24 lectures, in which you examine the differences in people’s personalities, where these differences come from, and how they shape our lives.

Drawing on information gleaned from psychology, neuroscience, and genetics, Professor Leary opens the door to understanding how personality works and why. Throughout his illuminating lectures, five important personality traits come into focus, traits that form the foundation of how psychologists approach the topic of personality: extraversion, neuroticism, agreeableness, conscientiousness, and openness.

Combining psychology with neuroscience and behavioral genetics, this exploration will open your eyes to the myriad ways our traits, motives, emotions, beliefs, and values are shaped by things like our genes, environment, experiences, and evolutionary history. Why is it so hard to change our behavior? Why do people develop different values and morals? Does personality change as we age? Is personality passed down through genes?

Designed as a fascinating, accessible scientific inquiry, these lectures will have you thinking about personality in a way that enriches your understanding of the complex psychological processes that make you who you are.
