Do you know where all your money goes after you get your paycheck?

Are there still savings left after all your expenses?

  • Why you need more than one source of income -- even if your current job is paying you a lot

  • The #1 mistake young people make when using credit cards (and what to do when you can’t avoid it)

Safe, Wanted, and Loved: A Family Memoir of Mental Illness, Heartbreak, and Hope

by Patrick Dylan


"Anyone out there struggling to navigate mental illness should read this thoughtful book."
—Former U.S. Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy, founder of the Kennedy Forum

“Pat, we need to kill the dog.” A chill ran down Patrick Dylan’s spine as his wife spoke—psychosis had found their family again.

When a sudden mental illness struck his wife, Patrick Dylan found himself living with an eerie stranger. Scared and unprepared, he began a desperate battle to protect her from a mysterious disease, shelter their children from her bizarre behavior, and recover the woman he loved.

For years, Patrick and Mia Dylan enjoyed an intimate marriage that exemplified partnership. They worked together to create a loving home for their two children, enjoyed a close relationship with their extended family, and offered mutual support during hard times. But on the morning of Mia’s thirty-ninth birthday, everything changed.

Within weeks, she had been admitted to the emergency room, the hospital, and the local crisis facility, but none of the experts could provide an answer. As her illness eluded diagnosis, the family’s struggle was only beginning. A brave memoir in the tradition of Brain on Fire, Dylan’s Safe, Wanted, and Loved is a compassionate, honest, and gripping account of a family navigating mental illness.

Smartphones have transformed the world with their convenience and capabilities. A single small device can replace a landline, camera, CD player, and road map—but all of this miraculous technology comes with a cost.

Smartphones have particularly powerful effects on our children, making them shallow, depressed, and unable to think critically. They exercise less, rarely socialize, get worse grades, and have lower self-esteem. In the most severe cases, they may even take their own lives.

Despite how common this addiction is, it is possible to overcome. The Smartphone Addiction Restriction is a guide for those who see the danger of the situation. We may not be able to quit using smartphones entirely, but with this tested and proven plan, we can limit their activity to the most essential uses.

In The Smartphone Addiction Restriction, you’ll learn:

  • The way that smartphones were designed to be not just entertaining but addictive

  • Why smartphone users spend over five years of their lives swiping and clicking

  • A multiple-choice test to determine your personal level of addiction

  • All the things you’ll have time for when you use your cell phone less

  • Tips and techniques to fight the urge to reach for your cell phone when your cravings hit

  • A step-by-step, day-by-day plan to reduce (or eliminate) your smartphone usage


And much more!

You can’t live life to the fullest while you’re staring at your phone. Even though smartphones are incredibly addictive, you—and your children—can break free of this dangerous habit. When you put down your phone, you’ll find yourself happier, more confident, energized, and actually smarter! On The Smartphone Addiction Restriction plan, you’ll cut your screen time down by 80% and possibly even further.

  • Is overwhelmed by all the ‘gurus’ offering advice;
  • Is concerned about which companies even accept Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies;

  • Is debating if cryptocurrencies are worth it;
  • Doesn’t have enough money to invest;

How to Melt Body Fat Without Diets or Gyms

by Adam Grayston


Are you ready to recharge your confidence and rekindle your youth?

Are you sick and tired of wearing baggy clothes and avoiding the mirror?

Do you always put everyone else’s needs before your own?

You might be reading this, having tried every diet and fad under the sun

You might be snowed under with work, thinking you haven’t got time for yourself to lose weight and be healthier

Maybe you already know that you’re the queen of excuses, saying you’ll “start on Monday”...again

Sometimes you have a burst of motivation to lose weight and eat better, within a day or two, it vanishes, and you’re back to skipping meals and cracking open the wine when you get home...whilst you check emails

Feels like Groundhog Day, going round in the same circle, gaining weight, losing weight, feeling better, feeling crap

Always wondering how friends and colleagues at work find time to exercise and stay in shape, secretly wishing that was you...

If so, I get it, I know it’s not been easy for you

But how long can it go on for before you eventually crack?

Maybe you’ve already hit a low point and you know it’s time to do something about it before it gets worse

Maybe you’re ready to stop hiding behind black clothes and baggy jumpers

If that’s you, I have an opportunity for you, very little commitment, not much energy or time needed at all

Soon after joining the health and fitness industry, Adam realized that most women didn’t need to slave away in the gym or sign up to another fad diet to try and lose weight, what they needed was support, guidance, accountability and an easy to implement plan to reach their weight loss goals and keep it off long term.

 

Adam brings 10 years of transforming the bodies and mindsets of hundreds of busy women around the world into his brand-new book where you will discover:

 

An easy way to build healthy, long-term habits whilst still enjoying your life

 

Simple steps to rekindle your youth and undo the damage from yo-yo diets

 

Small changes to recharge and repair your confidence

 

A proven way to melt body fat for good, even if you’re short on time

 

It's time to put you back in control, this book will break you free from dieting and give you the tools you need to become leaner, healthier and happier long term.

The Journey to Source

by Maria Kitsios


The Journey to Source

May the poetry in this book serve as a reminder that we are visitors here.
One day each of us will let go of everything and everyone we love.
It is this powerful and humbling truth which makes us truly appreciate life.
Let us use this life as the grandest opportunity
to explore, strengthen, heal, grow, love, give, create,
and courageously forge ahead in service to others.
Heart first always in connection to Source.
Delve within and answer the necessary questions:

  • Who am I?
  • What is the meaning of life?
  • Why am I here?

    Let the answers which arise manifest as your legacy to this world.

     

    This book is the first of a series of seven poetry books.
    Each book is composed of poems which discuss matters of one specific chakra.
    In yoga practice, we usually begin from the root chakra (grounding) and elevate to the crown chakra (en-lighten-ment).
    However, I decided to begin with the crown chakra and work my way downwards.
    It is the last and highest of the chakras, the one most associated with the metaphysical, spiritual realm.
    This is done to honor all those who have physically left this world, yet are still present and connected to us.
     

    The Chakra System


    According to the Vedas (ancient Indian sacred texts), the physical body is composed of seven main energy or vortex centers called chakras.
    Chakra is the Sanskrit word for wheel.
    The seven main chakras run along the spine-beginning from the root and ending with the crown chakra.
     
  • 1 Root
  • 2 Sacral
  • 3 Solar plexus
  • 4 Heart
  • 5 Throat
  • 6 Third eye
  • 7 Crown


  •  

Each chakra has a different color, element, sound, mantra, function, location, major organ, and association.
The flow or blockage/imbalance of subtle energy in each chakra determines the health or disease of the individual body.
 

Crown Chakra information:


Sanskrit name: Sahasrara
Color: Violet, gold, and white
Element: Thought and consciousness
Sound: Om
Mantra: “I Know”
Practice: Sitting meditation
Function: Understanding
Location: Top of the head
Organ: Cerebral cortex and the central nervous system
Associations: Faith, courage, spirituality, connection, and selflessness
Dysfunctions when imbalanced: Depression, apathy, confusion, insomnia, sensitivity to light and sound, memory loss, boredom, and mental disorders.

Dig Into Small Space Gardening for Beginners

by Morgan Becker


If you are frustrated with the difficulties of starting a successful home garden, in the small spaces you have available, then keep reading!

Now I know for many, gardening can be a little intimidating.  How many times do you hear sad stories of people putting in a whole season's worth of work only to get a few disappointing patches of growth?

Our lives are insanely busy these days. So when you invest your precious free time and end up with nothing to show for it, it can get very disheartening. 

In the end, we often find the errors responsible for ruining our harvest often fall to more minor decisions we missed or weren't aware of along the way.  'Nothing' choices that seem simple and easy to manage in the moment but will have a lasting effect throughout the whole season.

Yes, for some, gardening comes as a natural talent. For others, some research and self-education may go into the mix. But with a few practiced steps, it can become an easily repeatable process, and with that, anyone can create a fine small space garden.

Back yard… patio… deck… living room… kitchen…

Small space gardening is a constant exercise in creative design.  Finding ways to fill in bare spots both inside and outside our homes with growth and color.  But selecting various plants you can enjoy is as easy as shopping for clothes.

Getting them to a point where they will flourish year after year… that is where we can run into trouble.  Many times over, people will buy beautiful flowers at the local nursery only to see them wilt away as they attempt to care for them.

Not for any lack of interest or effort, but simply because they took steps that weren't optimal for the plants' needs. 

In this book, you will discover:

  • How to properly assess the spaces available to work with for optimal growth.
  • Elements you may not have considered when designing your layout.
  • Steps to make sure the time and effort you invest in your garden does not go to waste.
  • Critical choices when selecting plants for your home and garden.
  • How to create the best foundations for your plants to grow in.
  • Help spark creative methods for taking advantage of every bit of space both inside and outside your home.
  • Help you to manage your garden more efficiently by clarifying and simplifying foundational elements of gardening.

Gardens are a contradiction of nature. We bury seeds down in the dirt so they will grow up towards the sky.  Plants that have evolved to ward off pests coexist in gardens with other varieties that intentionally draw bugs in.

Consider the growth of plants is a fairly automatic process. Yet frequently, we must keep these plants under observation to ensure they are protected from harsh environments, appropriately watered, and that there is guaranteed adequate sunlight. 

Too often, I have heard from friends and family that gardening is too complicated or takes up too much of my time and effort.

And each time, I can't help but point out it is not difficult.  It does not need to take a great deal of time and effort if you don't want it to.  What it does take is the right effort.

Even if you can only spare 30 minutes a week, I know anyone can start a small, successful growing space.  No design is too small to enjoy. 

Start with a couple of pots or a wide planter on your windowsill.  Become comfortable with the basics.  After that, I'd be willing to bet you'll be thinking about your whole backyard for next season.  Everyone is capable of becoming a successful home gardener.

If you wish to be able to grow bountiful flowers and other plants on just about any scale, then scroll up and click the Add to Cart button.

Equity InSight

by Ethan Cruz


Did you feel truly prepared for the real world after you graduated? If you want to know how to make sure your students are being prepared for the real world, then keep reading...

 

A report produced in 2018 for CASEL showed that 52% of recent graduates believed they were not prepared for success after high school. It is not a secret that the education system is full of flaws, and students are not being taught the Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) skills they need for everyday life.

On top of that, schools don't know how to handle diversity. We talk about being inclusive, but the curriculum is structured as a standard for every student, but every student has different skills, interests, struggles, needs, cultural backgrounds, and lifestyles. This is causing many students to perform poorly because they are forced to follow the standard. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) focuses on creating equity in school by making education adaptable and flexible. That way, every single student can perform at their best and learn what matters.

Education desperately needs to change. That's why this book is going to inspire you and guide you to start changing the lives of your students little by little. In Equity Insight, you will find:

  • How to make UDL easy to implement
  • What makes a great teacher
  • How to start making a change even when you have no support
  • Why having SEL skills is more important than a college degree
  • How to identify what your students really need
  • Why SEL and UDL are the keys to a better future
  • The best way to start SEL in your classroom with a $0 budget

Every student needs to feel supported and valued. What are you waiting for to start making a change in your student's life? Students have never been more in need of Social-Emotional skills than in this time of uncertainty, anxiety, and depression.

Dealing with the Unavoidable Narcissist in Your Life

by Sydney Koh


When going 'no contact' or leaving are not viable options: discover how to cope with narcissists while living under the same roof, sharing a workplace, or co-parenting.

Do you know what it feels like trying to please your loved one, only to find your efforts have made matters worse?

Or how you’re left feeling worthless and stupid after another session of criticism and ridicule by someone close to you?

Has a colleague at work ever blamed you for his failures, or spread gossip about you?

If this sounds familiar, you might have a narcissist in your inner circle.

Psychologists and behavioral experts are still debating the causes of narcissism, but they all agree on one thing: having a narcissist in your life is extremely harmful to your well-being.

Coping with a narcissist leaves you feeling drained and empty, and deeply affects your self-esteem.

The scariest thing about such individuals is probably the fact they can get away with this behavior for years, by destroying the confidence of their victims.

Breaking free from that toxic circle of narcissism and codependency is hard, especially when you’re dealing with someone close to you.

People who have experienced this type of abuse often advise others to escape by breaking all contact with a narcissist.

But what happens when leaving is not an option? When a narcissist is your parent, sibling or an ex-spouse you have to co-parent with?

If you’ve found yourself in such a situation, and you feel trapped and hopeless, take a deep breath: you’re not alone, and there’s a way to regain your freedom and confidence.

In Dealing with the Unavoidable Narcissist in Your Life, you will discover:

  • How to detect subtle narcissistic behavior, and recognize if someone you care about is playing mind tricks on you
  • The connection between codependency and narcissism -- discover why you attract narcissists, and what you can do to stop it
  • Common misconceptions and myths about narcissists, and why they’re not necessarily evil or bad people
  • How to use the Grey Rock method for coping with manipulative and narcissistic behavior
  • What to do when your parent or sibling is a narcissist -- discover how to keep your mental freedom while living with a narcissist under the same roof
  • Techniques and strategies for dealing with a narcissistic boss or colleague when you have no option but to work with them every day
  • A guide on being a co-parent with a narcissistic ex, and ensuring your children never fall victim to mental abuse

Trial, Error, and Success

by Sima Dimitrijev and Maryann Karinch


Everything in nature evolves by trial and error. We cannot avoid this fundamental method of natural evolution, but our human advantage is that we can think about and learn from the errors before trying again.

Trial, Error, and Success helps boost that advantage with 10 insights into realistic knowledge, thinking, and emotional intelligence.

You will see throughout the book how successful thinking combines sharp analyses of new information with broad analogies to existing knowledge. The authors use real-life examples to show

  • How thinking can avoid overgeneralization traps.
  • How to create new knowledge by trial-and-error thinking.
  • How to reduce personal risk and maximize benefits by collective application of the trial-and-error process.

It becomes obvious why machine learning and automatic actions cannot replace human intelligence and decision making!

Toxic Thinking: 5 Simple Ways To Take Control of Your Thoughts & Emotions

by K.C. Myler


The Essential 5 Step Guide to Defeat Your Toxic Mindset

Do you constantly judge and fixate on your actions and decisions?

Do your thoughts make you increasingly anxious?

Are you always a ‘glass half empty type of person?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above questions, then you may have what psychologists call a “toxic mindset”—resulting in anxiety, depression, lower self-esteem, and poor quality of life.

According to the National Science Foundation, the average person can have anywhere between 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day, and about 80% of those are negative.

While self-talk—the voice in your head—is natural in helping you make decisions, many times it can take a negative path, becoming a toxic trap of self-hate that limits you from living a healthy life.

However, there is a way to combat toxic thinking, and it doesn’t involve spending your hard-earned cash on costly medicines or treatments.

In Toxic Thinking, you’ll find tools and techniques backed by research to start you on your journey towards self-help. You’ll discover:

  • Baby Steps: 5 DIY ways to silence the harsh inner critic
  • In-depth yet simple guidance to understanding and identifying the 4 types of negative self-talk
  • straight from the psychologists’ handbook
  • The steps you need to take to break toxic thoughts and finally find inner peace
  • Get to know how psychologists do it: Explore Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and its benefits without breaking a sweat
  • A number of CBT techniques to control negative thoughts, including examples
  • 4 ways to transform negative self-talk into meaningful conversations with yourself
  • The habits you need to break right now in order to control negative thoughts
  • How to improve confidence and self-esteem—the author’s definitive guide to building positive habits
  • Challenge Your Mind: 2 easy exercises to build the habit of positive thinking
  • Two Bonus Exercises—Chart your thoughts in 5 minutes; reduce stress and anxiety

And much more.

Toxic thinking is quite common in all age groups and genders. Most of the time, we don’t even realize what we are going through, and it can become difficult to talk about and explain how we feel.

K. C. Myler knows exactly what you’re experiencing—she’s lived it, fought it—and now she wants to share her knowledge in this easy-to-understand, relatable guide: tried, tested and practical ways to get you out of your negative headspace.

You deserve a better life, and the way towards it is in the palm of your hands.

The best part? It can often be done naturally, without any need for medication or a lifetime of blood sugar logging.

If you have been diagnosed with prediabetes or Type 2 diabetes, making simple changes to your diet and activity levels can go a long way to improving your blood sugar levels, and even send your condition into remission.

We live in a world where stress is high, desk jobs are the norm, and health often has to take a back seat while we make a living and take care of our families. It’s understandable that sometimes we lose track of where the road to good health lies.
