What if almost everything we believed about finding happiness turned out to be inaccurate, misleading, or false? And what if those very beliefs were making us miserable? What if our efforts to find happiness were actually preventing it? A growing body of scientific research suggests that we are all caught in a powerful psychological trap: a vicious cycle, whereby the more we strive for happiness, the more we suffer. This book provides an escape from ‘the happiness trap’, via a revolutionary new development in human psychology: a powerful model for change, known as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT helps people to create a rich, full and meaningful life, whilst effectively handling the pain that inevitably comes with it. It achieves this through the use of six powerful principles, which are very different to the ‘common-sense’ strategies suggested in most self-help books. ACT has been clinically proven to be highly effective in a wide range of psychological disorders, ranging from depression and anxiety to drug addiction and schizophrenia. It is no exaggeration to say that ACT is changing the very face of western psychology — and it was recently written up as a major feature article in ‘Time’ magazine. Interestingly, although ACT is based on cutting-edge psychological research into human cognition, it has many parallels with ancient eastern philosophy. This book shows you how to apply ACT in your own life to increase self-awareness, develop emotional intelligence, enhance relationships, create a sense of meaning and purpose, access a transcendent sense of self, and fundamentally transform painful thoughts and feelings so they have much less impact and influence over your life.

Get back to basics and transform your life with this simple four-week, step-by-step breathing retraining program. In her years of teaching breathing retraining, Mary Birch has found that the majority of her clients experiencing symptoms of panic, anxiety and stress are overbreathing, sometimes significantly. Generally, they are not aware that they are overbreathing, or that this is linked to symptoms. Reducing breathing to the normal level has an enormous impact on reducing stress, anxiety, and panic and restoring a sense of calm. Most people will begin to feel an improvement in their symptoms within a week of implementing the strategies contained in this book, sometimes even within a few days. But Mary recommends a minimum four-week breathing retraining program for a reason: the body has to adjust to the new and improved breathing pattern, and this needs to become automatic, so that you do not revert to a disordered breathing pattern and chronic overbreathing in times of stress. Part 1 of this book provides an explanation of the link between overbreathing and stress, anxiety and panic symptoms. Part 2 contains a four-week program with weekly guidelines to help people experiencing these issues to improve their breathing pattern and gain long-term relief. If you struggle with symptoms of panic, stress or anxiety, this book could help change your life in a matter of weeks.
