The Slight Edge

Olson, J.

Some people do find this book a bit repetitious but the central point is well made and that’s that it’s the small things, maintained, that make all the difference.  So it is with health and resilience.  It’s not the one off faddy diet that will bring you lasting results, it’s the accretion of marginal gains.

The Clever Guts Diet

Mosley, M.

Is one thing to acknowledge that conditions such as IBS are made much worse or perhaps caused by stress but did you realise that even you think and feel is influenced by the billions of microbes that give in your gut?  Your gut contains more neurons than the brain of a cat and there are more linkages from your gut to your brain than vice versa!  No wonder we talk of a “gut reaction”!  It’s time to pay more respect to what lies within …

Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World

Williams, M. & Penman, D.

This one includes a free CD and guided meditations as well.  It’s also great as an audiobook. MINDFULNESS reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that can be incorporated into daily life to help break the cycle of unhappiness, stress, anxiety and mental exhaustion and promote genuine joie de vivre. It’s the kind of happiness that gets into your bones. It seeps into everything you do and helps you meet the worst that life can throw at you with new courage. The book is based on Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). MBCT revolves around a straightforward form of mindfulness meditation which takes just a few minutes a day for the full benefits to be revealed. MBCT has been clinically proven to be at least as effective as drugs for depression and it is recommended by the UK’s National Institute of Clinical Excellence – in other words, it works. More importantly, it also works for people who are not depressed but who are struggling to keep up with the constant demands of the modern world. MINDFULNESS focuses on promoting joy and peace rather than banishing unhappiness. It’s precisely focused to help ordinary people boost their happiness and confidence levels whilst also reducing anxiety, stress and irritability

Towards a Psychology of Being

Maslow, A.

The 1962 classic.  Still as relevant as ever. There’s a strong argument that we need more “being” and less doing in order to stay resilient.  We are more than our most recent achievements!
