'I love this book!' - Mandy Lehto, Psychologies' Magazine Self-care is the future of preventative medicine - daily nourishment that gives us a fighting chance to minimize illness, fatigue, depression and anxiety.

Based on the latest scientific research into the mind/body connection, psychologist, yoga teacher and personal trainer Suzy Reading has developed a 'vitality wheel' that offers a complete head, heart and body self-care toolkit that readers can select from according to their needs. Included are 8 evidence-based ways to boost your happiness, energy, resilience and resourcefulness.Each section includes power poses from yoga that enhance and build on the practical advice.(P) 2017 Octopus Publishing Group

Washing up is Good for you

Can washing up really be good for you? Can we discover a moment of insight, a wave of calm, a tickle of delight or a tingle of connection within our simple, readily available, everyday routine? Without needing to alter our entire lifestyle, can we unearth a fresh way in, hidden inside the daily and seemingly mundane? How might we flip our thinking away from resisting and towards maybe even relishing the washing up, the cleaning and the cooking? What might this do for our body, our mind and our relationships? One everyday activity at a time, artists, designers, writers, psychologists and speakers share their stories and experiences of the everyday. You will hear of family bonding over the washing up, wondrous rituals with a cup of tea and the creation of playful households. So, yes, we are suggesting that washing up can be good for you. In fact, even more than good for you! It can be liberating, relaxing, creative and healing. These ideas are deeply embedded in some of the world's most ancient wisdom. Here, we simply explore how this way of thinking can very easily become part of our daily doing.(p) 2017 Octopus Publishing Group

Walking in the Rain

Getting lost and feeling found...'I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.' - John Muir, John of the MountainsWalking is medicine for the mind. It helps us slow down and think things through. It also helps us perk up and generate new ideas. There are few activities as readily available and revitalizing as a brisk walk, or as soothing and stimulating as a long walk. Wonderful things can happen when we set out on two feet.Within these pages, you will find stories from artists, designers, writers, psychologists and speakers who are inspired by the effect of pacing outdoors. You will hear of walks in the city, hikes through woods at dawn and epic adventures involving long journeys on foot. No matter the scale of the tale, the writer offers lessons they learned of a simple, human nature that we can all understand.In each chapter you will discover suggestions and ideas about how to create simple daily habits from the writer's thinking. In a world where so much of the noise around us suggests we are not good enough as we are, and that we must seek to change, these accounts try to do something different. They aim instead to invite a stroll into the complex pathways of the mind to discover the beauty of our own quirky individuality.(p) Octopus Publishing Group 2017
