Primate Change

Vybarr Cregan-Reid
Authors:
Vybarr Cregan-Reid

IF YOU THINK YOU ARE YOU, THINK AGAIN.PRIMATE CHANGE is a wide-ranging, polemical look at how and why the human body has changed since humankind first got up on two feet. Spanning the entirety of human history - from primate to transhuman - Vybarr Cregan-Reid's book investigates where we came from, who we are today and how modern technology will change us beyond recognition.In the last two hundred years, humans have made such a tremendous impact on the world that our geological epoch is about to be declared the 'Anthropocene', or the Age of Man. But while we have been busy changing the shape of the world we inhabit, the ways of living that we have been building have, as if under the cover of darkness, been transforming our bodies and altering the expression of our DNA, too.PRIMATE CHANGE beautifully unscrambles the complex architecture of our modern human bodies, built over millions of years and only starting to give up on us now.'Our bodies are in a shock. Modern living is as bracing to the human body as jumping through a hole in the ice. Our bodies do not know what century they were born into and they are defending and deforming themselves in response'

Glow15

Naomi Whittel
Authors:
Naomi Whittel

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERIn addition to natural wear and tear that our bodies experience, environmental toxins accumulate in our cells, accelerating the signs of aging. Autophagy is the cellular process that removes these toxins and repairs the damage left behind. On GLOW15, you start each day with an autophagy-activating ketogenic tea and a light, full-fat breakfast, followed by intermittent fasting and protein cycling. You eat foods that activate autophagy - like dairy, red wine, grains and a blueberry smoothie.It can be that simple to see dramatic results in just 15 days - fast weight loss and glowing, radiant skin. You don't count calories. You don't give up entire food groups. And you don't obsess about the gym. You do, however, get Naomi Whittel's advice for sleep, travel, stress reduction and productivity, as well as delicious and nutritious recipes for eating the GLOW15 way - everything that this 42-year-old CEO and mother of four young children does to look and feel amazing.

Emily-Jane Clark
Authors:
Emily-Jane Clark

Sleep Is For The Weak may cause Gina Ford to have contented kittens. It might even force Supernanny to throw herself off the naughty step, but it will certainly provide some welcome comfort and comical light relief to exhausted parents suffering from sleep-deprivation! It features humorous alternatives to `useful' sleep advice while offering inspiration, laughter and survival strategies for mums and dads struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel of tiredness. Including chapters `What to Expect (When Nothing Is Anything Like You Expected When You Were Expecting)' and `How Not To Lose Friends and Irritate People When You Have Babies', this book will make even the most stressed parent laugh.

Pause

Danielle Marchant
Authors:
Danielle Marchant

"Danielle Marchant is a beguiling leader - a refreshing mix of pragmatic and soulful.She facilitates with a light hand and an engaged heart" Queen of RetreatsPause is an important message ready to be heard.We check our phones an average of 221 times a day, we have apps that help us sleep and remind us to be mindful while we secretly measure our success in 'likes'. Time is our luxury and yet with technology we are never able to leave the office, even when we aren't there. The fear of missing out makes us rush from one thing to the next, not really taking any of it in. Pause allows you to finally put yourself, your feelings and your intuition first. Learning to say no, doing the things that make you feel good, and not doing the things that don't make you feel good - these are not self indulgent, listening to your own heart and wisdom doesn't make you selfish, slowing down to appreciate your life isn't lazy or unambitious. It is an ancient message, but still just as strong; when you pause to take care of yourself and your own life, you become the person you're meant to be. This audiobook gives you the space and the practices so that you can learn how to benefit from the power of the pause. It uses nature, creativity and your inner spirit to allow the energy to flow freely once again. There are exercises to ground you, give access to your intuition, to breathe deeply and allow your monkey mind to settle. It gives you time to explore what is big in your life right now, to know deep down what matters. It opens you up, allowing you to freely experience all the pain, the joy and the twists and turns of life. It gives you back your courage, your fire and your connection.Danielle Marchant has a long work history as a successful executive coach in the corporate industry, working with top-level executives at companies such as HSBC, McKinsey Unilever and SAP. She has more than 13 years experience working with leaders in 20 different countries; and spent 3 years living and working in Asia, where she set up a pioneering coaching company and an award winning change management consultancy. After learning that goals and ambitions could be just as happily and successfully achieved when simply allowing the body and mind to pause, she adapted her coaching style with both personal and corporate clients to flow rather than fight against the ups and downs of life.Find out more about Danielle at www.lifebydanielle.com(p) 2017 Octopus Publishing Group
