You Left Early - A True Story of Love and Alcohol (Hardcover, Edition): Louisa Young You Left Early - A True Story of Love and Alcohol (Hardcover, Edition)
Louisa Young 1
R363 R264 Discovery Miles 2 640 Save R99 (27%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

`Spectacular. I can't stop thinking about it. Louisa Young is a beautiful, beautiful writer' Cathy Rentzenbrink, author of The Last Act of Love This brutal, beautiful memoir from award-winning novelist Louisa Young is a heartbreaking portrayal of love, grief and the merciless grip of addiction. Louisa first met Robert Lockhart when they were both 17. Their stop-start romance lasted decades, in which time he became a celebrated composer and she, an acclaimed novelist. Always snapping at their heels was Robert's alcoholism, a helpless, ferocious dependency that affected his personality before crippling and finally, despite five years of hard-won sobriety, killing him. There are a million love stories, and a million stories of addiction. This one is truly transcendent. It is at once a compelling portrait of a unique and charismatic man; a bittersweet reflection on an all-consuming love affair; and a completely honest and incredibly affecting guide to how the partner of an alcoholic can possibly survive when the disease rips both their lives apart. This is a hugely important book - raw and unflinching but also uplifting and elegiac, it should be essential reading for anybody who's ever lost someone they loved.

8 Keys to End Emotional Eating - Autonomy and the Spirit of Rebellion (Paperback): Howard Farkas 8 Keys to End Emotional Eating - Autonomy and the Spirit of Rebellion (Paperback)
Howard Farkas; Foreword by Babette Rothschild
R294 Discovery Miles 2 940 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Traditional diet books focus on meal plans, low- calorie solutions and quick fixes. But these approaches just treat the symptoms, not the cause- which leads many dieters to return to their bad habits. Howard S. Farkas, who has more than two decades of professional and teaching experience in clinical psychology, digs deeper by looking at the single greatest cause of overeating: our emotions. Emotional eaters- those who eat in response to feelings rather than hunger-usually understand basic nutrition and how to control their weight. They may take charge of every other aspect of their life, but still feel helpless against the emotional barriers keeping them from healthy eating. 8 Keys to End Emotional Eating provides a detailed plan for overcoming these barriers. By exploring the causes that drive the desire to over eat, Farkas develops practical skills to manage this desire on a daily basis. His road map for the future will help readers maintain healthy eating habits for years to come.

Shook One - Anxiety Playing Tricks on Me (Paperback): Charlamagne Tha God Shook One - Anxiety Playing Tricks on Me (Paperback)
Charlamagne Tha God 2
R259 R170 Discovery Miles 1 700 Save R89 (34%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Charlamagne Tha God, New York Times bestselling author of Black Privilege and always provocative cohost of Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, reveals his blueprint for breaking free from your fears and anxieties. Being "shook" is more than a rap lyric for Charlamagne, it's his mission to overcome. While it may seem like he's ahead of the game, he is actually plagued by anxieties, such as the fear of losing his roots, the fear of being a bad dad, and the fear of being a terrible husband. In the national bestseller Shook One, Charlamagne chronicles his journey to beat those fears and shows a path that you too can take to overcome the anxieties that may be holding you back. Ironically, Charlamagne's fear of failure-of falling into the life of stagnation or crime that caught up so many of his friends and family in his hometown of Moncks Corner-has been the fuel that has propelled him to success. However, even after achieving national prominence as a radio personality, Charlamagne still found himself paralyzed by anxiety and distrust. Here, in Shook One, he is working through these problems-many of which he traces back to cultural PTSD-with help from mentors, friends, and therapy. Being anxious doesn't serve the same purpose anymore. Through therapy, he's figuring out how to get over the irrational fears that won't take him anywhere positive. Charlamange hopes Shook One can be a call to action: Getting help is your right. His second book "cements the radio personality's stance in making sure he's on the right side of history when it comes to society's growing focus on mental health, while helping remove the negative stigma" (Billboard).

Diastasis Recti - The Whole-Body Solution to Abdominal Weakness and Separation (Paperback): Katy Bowman Diastasis Recti - The Whole-Body Solution to Abdominal Weakness and Separation (Paperback)
Katy Bowman
R258 R211 Discovery Miles 2 110 Save R47 (18%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Diastasis recti, the separation of the abdominal muscles, is a symptom of a whole-body problem. Your abdominal muscles bend, twist, and support the spine. They contract and release to help you breathe, cough, talk, and sing. They stretch to accommodate pregnancy, haul your lower body towards your upper, and protect your abdominal organs. They should not be splitting down the middle. In Diastasis Recti: The Whole Body Solution to Abdominal Weakness and Separation, biomechanist Katy Bowman explains the larger picture when it comes to DR including body alignment; frequency of movement; the effects of all-day forces, like intra-abdominal pressure; and why a few exercises simply aren't enough for long-term success. You need to learn a new way to move for an improved set of core muscles. Because the abdominals are connected directly and indirectly to every other part of the body, Diastasis Recti lays out a whole-body corrective program to address the factors that overloaded the core in the first place.With over 30 exercises and habit modifications, this book is for any man or woman experiencing abdominal separation or weakness and wanting to improve both the appearance and the function of their abdomen.

What does it take to have a healthy and joyful old age? Researchers say it's not too late to make changes at 50 to get the 'retirement years' we want. But what should we change and how do we do it? Annabel Streets and Susan Saunders spent their 30s climbing the career ladder, having children and caring for elderly parents - all at the same time. By their 40s, they were exhausted, stressed, sleeping too little and rushing too much. They began to ask whether the prolonged ill health and dementia suffered by their parents was their inevitable future too - could they do anything to avoid requiring their own children to care for them in old age? Thus began The Age-Well Project. With incredible tenacity, Annabel and Susan read scientific research papers on all aspects of ageing to find what advice cutting-edge research can offer us on how to ensure the longer lives we're living are healthy and happy. Putting their findings into practice, they found that the lifestyle changes they made were having incredible benefits on their health and wellbeing now - as well as for the future. Told with empathy and humour, in The Age-Well Project Annabel and Susan share the 50 key lessons they learned, the meals they cooked and the experts' tips they uncovered to make the second half of your life the best half of your life - happy, healthy and disease-free.

One woman's journey to overcome grief by delving into an overlooked wonder of nature.

'As the world of mushrooms opened up to me I began to see that the path back to life was easier than I had thought. It was simply a matter of gathering delights that flash and sparkle. All I had to do was follow the mushroom trail, even though I still didn't know where it would lead. What would I find in the great unknown that lay ahead of me? What lay beyond those hilltops and mists and turns in the road?'

When Long Litt Woon loses her husband of 32 years to an unexpected death, she is utterly bereft. An immigrant in his country, in losing the love of her life she has also lost her compass and her passport to society. For a time, she is stuck, aimless, disoriented. It is only when she wanders off deep into the woods with mushroom hunters and is taught there how to see clearly what is all around her, and learn how to make distinctions, take educated risks, and hear all the different melodies in Nature's chorus, that she returns to life and to living. And it is mushrooms which guide her back. In this book, she describes how they saved her, and how they might save you.

It also offers practical, day to day advice from a hands-on perspective, using a narrative structure. It follows the story of an older couple, Linda and Frank. Frank develops dementia.

Each chapter concludes with a short section of devotions for carers and sufferers.
