Stopping the spiral of toxic thoughts. Are your thoughts holding you captive? Jennie Allen knows what it's like to swirl in a spiral of destructive thoughts, such as I'll never be good enough. Other people have better lives than I do. God couldn't really love me. But Jennie also knows we don't have to stay stuck in toxic thinking patterns. As she discovered in her own life, God built a way for us to escape that downward spiral. Freedom comes when we refuse to be victims to our thoughts and realize we have already been equipped with power from God to fight and win the war for our minds. In Get Out of Your Head, a six-session video-based Bible study, Jennie inspires and equips us to transform our emotions, our outlook, and even our circumstances by taking control of our thoughts. Our enemy is determined to get in our heads to make us feel helpless, overwhelmed, and incapable of making a difference for the kingdom of God. But when we submit our minds to Christ, the promises and goodness of God flood our lives in remarkable ways. It starts in your head. And from there, the possibilities are endless. Sessions include: Introduction: Spiraling Out Make the Shift Weapons We Use, Part I Weapons We Use, Part II A New Way to Live A Mind Like Christ Designed for use with Get Out of Your Head Video Study (9780310116394), sold separately.

Get ready to take a different perspective on your problems and your life—and the way you live it. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a new, scientifically based psychotherapy that takes a fresh look at why we suffer and even what it means to be mentally healthy. What if pain were a normal, unavoidable part of the human condition, but avoiding or trying to control painful experience were the cause of suffering and long-term problems that can devastate your quality of life? The ACT process hinges on this distinction between pain and suffering. As you work through this book, you’ll learn to let go of your struggle against pain, assess your values, and then commit to acting in ways that further those values. ACT is not about fighting your pain; it’s about developing a willingness to embrace every experience life has to offer. It’s not about resisting your emotions; it’s about feeling them completely and yet not turning your choices over to them. ACT offers you a path out of suffering by helping you choose to live your life based on what matters to you most. If you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, or problem anger, this book can help—clinical trials suggest that ACT is very effective for a whole range of psychological problems. But this is more than a self-help book for a specific complaint—it is a revolutionary approach to living a richer and more rewarding life. Learn why the very nature of human language can cause suffering Escape the trap of avoidance Foster willingness to accept painful experience Practice mindfulness skills to achieve presence in the moment Discover the things you really value most Commit to living a vital, meaningful life This book has been awarded The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Self-Help Seal of Merit — an award bestowed on outstanding self-help books that are consistent with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) principles and that incorporate scientifically tested strategies for overcoming mental health difficulties. Used alone or in conjunction with therapy, our books offer powerful tools readers can use to jump-start changes in their lives.

This is a companion to The Creative Writing Handbook - now in its second edition. It is very much aimed at the individual writer, based on the idea that real writing comes from within and that writing is a craft, skill with determination, art with attitude. The book is filled with useful ideas and inspiring techniques for exploring and exploiting resources available, both within and without. It focuses on three major areas - the writer's roots (family, class and gender), the writer's resources (memory and language) and the writer's art (form and technique). Chapters focus on many topics, including how memory shapes a writer's material, the pro-creative force of words and the ambiguities of art and artfulness. Many examples of established writers' works are cited to give the fledgling writer much practical help.

American author Will Durant claimed that, "we are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit." I like to think that this applies to love, too. Love is not something we do once and check off the list. "To love" is a verb, not a passive attitude but a living, breathing discipline that relies on our consistent cultivation. I believe something else about love: that women are experts at it. We love our children, our friends, our parents, our partners. We love our pets, our gardens, our hobbies, our communities, our world. One thing we have trouble with, though, is loving ourselves. I believe that every woman could love herself more, but if you answer yes to many of the following statements, this book was definitely written for you: - Do you regularly fail to give yourself credit for things you've done or celebrate your achievements? - Do you shrug off compliments? - Do you dislike yourself? - Do you feel needy and clingy in relationships, always seeking approval and permission? - Do you assume people would reject you if they knew the real you? - Do you feel fundamentally unworthy, inferior and unlovable? - Do you feel like you don't really deserve to enjoy nice things? - Do you put your own pleasure and happiness last on your list of priorities? - Do you feel guilty when you prioritize your needs over some else's? - Do you often find yourself in dysfunctional relationships? - Do you feel like you're not really sure who you are deep down, or what you want and need? - Do you ignore your intuition and feelings? - Do you engage in negative self-talk, or are you really hard on yourself? - Do you find it difficult to establish and maintain healthy boundaries? - Do you neglect your physical, emotional and mental health? Recognizing that your relationship with yourself could be better takes courage, but by picking up this book you've taken an important first step. In this book, I want to help you reconnect with your natural, inborn instinct to love. Self-love builds slowly, with every act of compassionate intention, and with every step we take towards honoring and protecting the unique and precious individuals we are. With daily practice, we improve the relationship we have with our physical, emotional and even spiritual selves. Aligned this way, we build a deeper sense of wellbeing and self-worth. The interesting thing about mastering self-love, incidentally, is just how much it opens us up to receive and give love to others as well! The 21-day self-love workbook for women will help you to: - Enjoy life, incorporate feel good experiences and plan things to look forward to - Check in with yourself, feel what you feel, and allow uncomfortable feelings instead of denying or suppressing them - Use affirmations and remind yourself that you're human, and allowed to make mistakes - Be honest about the way you give and take in relationships - Address and manage chronic stressors daily with healthy habits - Slow down and savor life, allowing yourself to just be - Be mindful and learn dis-identification practices such as naming your inner critic - Develop a self-compassion practice - Set boundaries with assertiveness and clarity - ...and much more inside!
