Time to Breathe: Navigating Life and Work for Energy, Success and Happiness

by Dr Bill Mitchell

This book is for people who are struggling with the multiple demands of jobs that never seem to end and the complexities of their home lives. Struggling on without thinking through how to make it work can lead to exhaustion, unhappiness, burn-out or depression.Time To Breathe presents practical ideas that come out of Dr Bill Mitchell's clinical experience in getting people back to a zone of better energy, balance, fulfilment and more balanced ways of thinking about themselves. Through case studies of the everyday lives of people in many walks of professional life, we see how many of us can accidentally set off down a pathway that takes us away from our previously healthy robust selves - often without recognising it. When we can no longer stabilise our emotions and protect our energy we become overwhelmed, and rather than confident become self-doubting, guilty and anxious. This book describes three key building blocks of a balancing system to keep us within the energised healthy zone, in spite of the pressures we are under at work and at home. These are: self-awareness, an understanding of the physiology of energy, and a willingness to lead a more decisions-based life for better balance and effective working. Together, these form an overarching empowered mindset, freeing us from the mental habits that lead us to de-prioritise time for ourselves. And leading to far happier outcomes than feeling trapped and helpless, or walking away from career paths into which we have invested years of our lives.

Tips from Widowers

by Jan Robinson

With foreword by journalist Robert PestonWhen Jan Robinson's husband died suddenly and unexpectedly, she had the idea of asking any other widows, whenever and wherever she met them, for two tips about how to deal with widowhood. From this advice, she constructed her beautiful first volume, Tips from Widows. To Robinson's surprise, the book generated an overwhelming response not only from widows, but also from widowers. From these outpourings it became evident that a second book, this time for widowers, was inevitable. Grief is an unmanageable emotion and the form it takes is unique to every man whose wife or partner has died. There are no set rules about coping with loss. Some people struggle with it for years and maybe never get over it. Others manage to move on. This book makes no claim to be an authority on how to cope as a widower; it is, quite simply, tips from widowers. You may be alone in your boat on the ocean, but Tips from Widowers will help you to recognise that other boats are out there too.
