Such activities include using dominoes to model a nuclear chain reaction, replicating the expanding universe in a microwave oven, creating blue skies and red sunsets in a soda bottle, and calculating the speed of light using a melted chocolate bar.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy has already helped millions of people overcome their issues and move their life forward – now it can really help you too. In this busy, demanding and often stressful modern world, it’s a struggle to find time to even think about what your dreams and goals might be, let alone work towards actually realising them. It’s so easy to get stuck in a routine, to opt for the easy answers, to feel a lack of inspiration and motivation and then wind up feeling anxious and depressed. Far from being an exciting or invigorating prospect, the mere idea of changing anything about your life soon seems hard work, scary and something to be avoided. But your life really can be better than it is now - you just need to learn how to really believe it can. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or CBT, can lend a hand. It will help you change the way you think and feel about yourself, about others and about the world around. As you begin to feel more positive, more motivated and more confident you’ll soon begin to realise that your future is fully in your control. The scientifically-proven techniques of CBT are a powerful force to harness. Written by a leading psychologist, Change Your Life with CBT will deliver these tried and tested tools in an accessible package full of exercises, examples and practical advice and guidance . So if you’re feeling that your life has got stuck in first gear, or even stuck in reverse, and if you believe that the main thing holding you back is probably yourself, Change Your Life with CBT can help you overcome your barriers and start to achieve your goals at home, at work and throughout your whole life.

In a fast-paced world, wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could slow down and enjoy a life with less pressure, less stress, and more time for the things you love? Sweden is ranked in the top three of the world’s happiest places to live, and lagom, which means “not too much and not too little—just right,” is the Swedish philosophy for enjoying balance in every aspect of life—from work and leisure to family and food, and everything in between. Experienced bakers know by touch when the dough they are kneading is lagom—not too moist and not too dry. At the office, professionals who work hard—but not to the detriment of other parts of their lives—are following the lagom ideal. Lagom is moderation, balance, and equality. By using the Swedish lifestyle as an example, Niki Brantmark offers insightful suggestions and bite-sized actions to help you make subtle changes to your life, so you too can make time for the things that matter most and find greater happiness.

You may not know anyone else who suffers from repetitive “stuck” thoughts and compulsive rituals, but plenty of other teens experience symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD): the need to repeatedly wash their hands, check to make sure everything’s okay, count possessions, put things in order, or even repeat thoughts over and over.

Free from OCD offers forty easy cognitive behavioral exercises to help you move past your symptoms and live freely and flexibly, without fear. You’ll finally be able to stop compulsive thoughts in their tracks and keep them from coming back. This book helps you learn to: •Notice when thoughts are based in reality and when they’re exaggerated •Recognize and neutralize situations that trigger your symptoms •Make friends and feel more confident in social situations •Use relaxation techniques instead of falling back on your rituals

Do you suffer from panic, anxiety, and fear in your day-to-day life? Do you often avoid social situations, activities like driving, or even going to the store because of a fear of being overwhelmed or triggering a panic attack? You might be interested to know that anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorders in the United States. In Anxiety and Avoidance, psychologist and anxiety disorder expert Michael Tompkins presents a universal protocol to help you cope with anxiety, panic, and fear, regardless of your particular mental health diagnosis. This universal protocol is based on David H. Barlow's "unified protocol," and is a cognitive behavioral approach. Tompkins also draws on mindfulness-based therapies such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) that have been used successfully in the treatment of anxiety disorders for years. The book includes present-moment awareness (mindfulness) techniques, motivational tools for overcoming experiential avoidance, and cognitive tools for reframing anxiety and fear. In addition, you will learn how to use your personal values as a vehicle for lasting change. While most anxiety treatments have focused on symptom reduction, this book teaches you the skills needed to better handle the underlying emotional reactions that lead to anxiety and panic in the first place. If you are ready to stop avoiding situations that cause you to panic and get back to living a full life, this book is a powerful resource that can help you make a lasting change using an innovative, transdiagnostic approach.
