The Little Book of Intentional Living

Carolyn Boyes
Authors:
Carolyn Boyes

By living with intention we are actively shaping our lives, establishing how we wish to invest our energy and time on this Earth. Through the processes of self-enquiry, assessing our values, visioning and mindfulness we can ensure that our beliefs and actions are in alignment, discard those aspects of our lives that no longer serve us and manifest the existence we want.By using easy-to-follow tools, strategies and exercises, leading life coach and speaker, Carolyn Boyes, shows us how, in this fast-paced, demanding world, which is so full of distractions, we can move from living a busy life - one that we endure - to an intentional life - one that we have chosen.

By the Sea

Dr Deborah Cracknell
Authors:
Dr Deborah Cracknell

In this stunning book, intuition and instinct meet modern science as the therapeutic benefits of being in, on or by the sea are explained and explored, and how, if we look after the oceans they will, in turn, look after us. There is something about the vastness of the oceans, which are significantly larger than the continents combined, that has drawn humans in a significant way since the beginning of coastal communities. Throughout history, people have gravitated to live near the sea, it is part of the survival instinct. Water also has huge cultural and spiritual significance for people through the ages and for centuries we looked to the sand and surf as a fully-stocked medicine cabinet. Despite the widespread intuitive feeling that being by the water makes us happier and healthier, there hasn't been much scientific evidence to quantify this connection. Until now. Environmental psychology is the study of how the natural environment makes us feel, think and behave, and scientists in this area are discovering the tangible benefits of breathing in the fresh sea air.Reasons to spend time by the sea:1. Just looking at the sea can promote reductions in heart rate and improvements in mood.2. The negative ions in sea air accelerate your ability to absorb oxygen, and balance your seratonin levels.3. The bracing climate is especially beneficial to the respiratory organs and the skin, and also improves circulation and strengthens the body's defences.4. Spending time by the sea promotes better mental health.5. When you are by the sea you are more likely to exercise.

From the famed Crossing the Bridge Noodles to dishes like spiced chicken grilled in banana leaves, Cooking South of the Clouds will introduce cooks to a side of Chinese cooking still relatively unknown outside of the country itself. China's Yunnan Province is the most geographically, biologically and ethnically diverse region in China.Stretching from the Himalayan plateau to the subtropics, the province is home to thousands of species of plants and animals as well as twenty-four of China's minority groups. As a result, Yunnan is one of the most culinary interesting and delicious places on earth, with a wide variety of cuisines and flavours all packed into one small province. Each chapter in the book covers a different area featuring its classic recipes such as Tibetan momo dumplings from the north, grilled chicken with chillies and fresh herbs and the famed 'crossing-the-bridge' noodles from the south, fried rice with ham, potatoes, and peas from the east and roasted eggplant salad with tomatoes and herbs from the west, near the Burmese border. Complete with profiles of local cooks, artisans and farmers, as well as breath-taking location photography, Cooking South of the Clouds takes you on an unforgettable journey through the land of Shangri-La and presents a whole new world of flavours.
