100 Ways to Be Kind

Acts of everyday kindness can boost your mood and immunity, lower blood pressure, ease anxiety, slow the ageing process, improve the quality of your relationships (including the one you have with yourself) and give you a sense of deep meaning and purpose.

 

100 Ways to be Kind is a road map of practical, simple and immediately actionable ways to be kind including how to be kinder to yourself, to others and to nature.

 

Theresa debunks the damaging myth that being kind is a weakness and shows that it is not anger or aggression that brings out our true inner grit, but kindness.   

 

Science has proven that there are powerful, potentially lifesaving, reasons to be kind. The kinder you are, the more likely you are to experience happiness.

 

Kindness is the simple and scientifically proven remedy that everyone needs to administer right now. So, if you want to harness the power of kindness to transform your life and help save the world at the same time but aren’t quite sure how - this book is for you. 

 

Read what everyone is saying about Theresa Cheung:

‘Theresa Cheung provides a timely guide for individuals, who feel life deeply, to take a step back, and reflect upon sensitivity and how it fits in the modern world’s emotion paradigm…It reminded me there are steps I can use in my life to increase my self-care. I recommend this book to anyone who wishes to explore sensitivity in themselves or others.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars

A thorough explanation of the highly sensitive individual, the problems they need to wrestle with in their day-to-day life and their amazing gifts they can deploy at work and at home. Once the book talked us through these basic ideas, it then moves on to offering solutions to this high sensitivity, and to enjoying its pros rather than dealing with its cons.’ Affair With Psychology, 5 stars

I found this book absolutely fascinating. As someone who has been told to "toughen up" a lot I could relate to it so much. I really feel like this book has given me some great strategies for both me and my very sensitive 4-year-old son. Fantastic and recommended to anyone who feels it could help them.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars

Looking at individual case studies really resonated with me. It is helpful on many levels from the identifying traits of being sensitive to acknowledging what people have said to you since a child. It makes you see the positives of being sensitive instead of the negatives. Unlike some psychology books it is very accessible and friendly and non-judgemental.’ Karen Reads and Recommends

‘The aim of The Sensitivity Code is to help gentle people recognise their own worth. To give them the coping tools to manage emotions and navigate insensitive environments. To help sensitive people identify the red flags of toxic relationships. It’s truly helped me through the past few tricky weeks. Thank you.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars

13 Things Mentally Strong Women Don't Do

The emergence of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements have awakened society and encouraged women to find their voice and claim back their power. Contending with a host of difficult issues that demand psychological strength - in this crucial book, prominent psychotherapist and licensed clinical social worker Amy Morin gives women the techniques to build mental muscle in 13 steps.

Delving into critical issues like sexism, social media, social comparison, and social pressure, Amy offers thoughtful, intelligent advice, practical tips, and specific strategies; combining them with her personal experiences, stories from former patients, and both well-known and untold examples from women from across industries and pop culture. Throughout, she explores the areas women - and society at large - must focus on to become (and remain) mentally strong.

Amy reveals that healthy, mentally tough women don't insist on perfection; they don't compare themselves to other people; they don't see vulnerability as a weakness; they don't let self-doubt stop them from reaching their goals. Insightful, grounded, and extremely timely, 13 THINGS MENTALLY STRONG WOMEN DON'T DO can help every woman flourish - and Amy will take readers on this journey with her, every step of the way.

21st Century Girls

An absolute must-have parenting guide to raising girls in the 21st century.

'There can be no keener revelation of a country's soul than the way it treats its children.' Nelson Mandela

Childhood, as a stage in human development, has been steadily eroded. Children today are introduced to 21st-century adult values and behaviour at an increasingly early age, long before they are developmentally ready to cope with them. We expend immense time and effort attending to their material needs while simultaneously neglecting their developmental needs.

In this important polemic, Sue Palmer believes that if we do not get a grip on this problem soon, the increase in developmental disorders, behavioural difficulties and mental health problems recorded by experts over recent decades will soon spiral out of control.

Sue discusses challenges faced in the 21st century including:

-the problems facing parents in an age of materialism
-the way gender wars have intensified those problems
-the debate about the 'female brain'
-the reasons why contemporary culture can be so damaging for children, especially girls
-the challenges involved in detoxifying family life

Every parent, grandparent, teacher and carer of girls needs to read this book.

1,000 Mitzvahs

When her father passed away in 2006, Linda Cohen’s busy life as a mother, wife, and entrepreneur came to a screeching halt. She took a spiritual sabbatical to work through her grief, and she came out of it resolved to embark upon a project: perform one thousand acts of kindness—mitzvahs—to honor her father’s memory.

1,000 Mitzvahs shares Cohen’s two-and-a-half-year journey from sorrow to inspiration through simple daily acts of kindness. She presents each mitzvah as a short vignette, and the myriad forms they take—from helping the elderly to donating to good causes to baking and collecting food for others—highlight the many ways in which one person can touch the lives of others. As she pursues her quest, Cohen finds that her life is improved by these small acts—that every time she goes out of her way to do something good for someone else, she enhances her own well-being.

More than a touching story of a daughter’s love for her father, 1,000 Mitzvahs is a testament to the transformational power of kindness, and a call to arms for those who would like to follow in Cohen’s footsteps with their own mitzvahs—no matter how large or how small.

1 Peter (New Testament Guides)

This volume offers a concise and accessible introduction to 1 Peter, especially aimed at undergraduate-level students. It provides information on the likely historical and social setting of this letter, on its literary form and theological content, and on issues involved in its interpretation. In particular, this volume suggests that 1 Peter is an important text not least for the ways in which it both reflects and constructs early Christian identity, in its relationships with Judaism and the Roman Empire. Although 1 Peter remains neglected compared with the canonical gospels and the major Pauline letters, Horrell argues that the letter deserves much more attention for the pivotal contribution it makes to the development of early Christianity and for the ways in which it reveals this development in progress.
