LIFE GETS BETTER HB The Unexpected Pleasures of Growing Older Wendy Lustbader
From our earliest lives, we are told that our youth will be the best time of our lives—that the energy and vitality of youth are the most important qualities a person can possess and that everything that comes after will be a sad decline. But in reality, says Wendy Lustbader, youth is not the golden era it is often made out to be. For many, it is a time riddled with anxiety, angst, confusion and the torture of uncertainty. Conversely, the media often feeds us a vision of growing older as a journey of defeat and diminishment. They are dead wrong. As Lustbader counters, “Life gets better as we get older, on all levels except the physical.”
LIFE GETS BETTER is not a precious or whimsical tome on the quirky wisdom of the elderly. Lustbader—who has worked for several decades as a social worker specialising in ageing issues—conducted firsthand research with ageing and elderly people in all walks of life and she found that they overwhelmingly spoke of the mental and emotional richness they have drawn from ageing. Lustbader discovered that rather than experiencing a decline from youth, aging people were happier, more courageous and more interested in being true to their inner selves than were young people.
Don't dread the future: The best years of our lives just may be ahead.
In every hallowed fable, legend and maxim known the world over - from the parables of Christ to the tales of Ali Baba to the riddles of the alchemists - there hides a secret. For those with eyes to see it, this secret can be life-changing. It is so simple that it hides in plain sight, seen yet unseen every day.
Writing with the characteristic precision and vividness that has made him one of the greatest Inspirational authors of the past century, Robert Collier reveals this secret in his little-known classic, THE LIFE MAGNET.
What is this great secret? Simply this: The images that you impress upon your subconscious mind - whether of abundance or lack, failure or success - outpicture the surrounding world in startling and unexpected ways.
In THE LIFE MAGNET, Collier shows how to overcome mental obstacles and use this hidden power - which he variously calls the Divine Mind, the subconscious mind, the 'Genii-of-your-Mind' and the 'Open Sesame of life'. Whatever the name, Collier illustrates how it works, why it works, how to summon it and how to control it for higher good in your life.

LIFE WITHOUT ANGER Your Guide to Peaceful Living Dean Van Leuven
We all know what anger feels like. Whether we experience it as a brief nuisance or as an uncontrollable rage our inability to cope with it can cause serious emotional financial or even physical harm to ourselves and others. After years as a lawyer during which time he observed anger on multiple levels author Dean Van Leuven grew frustrated not only by his own personal anger but also by how the anger of other people affected him. It became obvious to him that emotional responses based on anger were not effective in solving problems. To deal with this dilemma Dean Van Leuven defied countless experts who taught 'anger control' or 'anger management' as the only treatment. In search of a permanent solution for himself he developed a far-reaching process that eliminated anger from his life once and for all. LIFE WITHOUT ANGER helps readers to break the cycle of stress anger and depression so that they can experience the true joy of life despite the setbacks. There is no coping or managing here. As inconceivable as it might sound it is possible never to experience anger regardless of the circumstances you come up against. With this revolutionary method you can now choose to live your LIFE WITHOUT ANGER.

LIFTING YOUR DEPRESSION How a Psychiatrist Discovered Chromium's Role in the Treatment of Depression Malcom Noell McLeod
More than a decade ago, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Malcolm McLeod discovered a new cause of and treatment for, the type of depression associated with carbohydrate cravings, weight gain, unexplained exhaustion and sensitivity to rejection. This type of disorder, known as atypical depression, begins early in life and can last a lifetime unless treated. Nearly half of all depressed people have this type of depression for which, up to now, there has been no effective treatment that is free of unwanted side effects.
Dr. McLeod's discovery that chromium, an insulin-sensitizing trace mineral, was more effective and faster acting in some patients than even the strongest antidepressant drugs, ran counter to conventional wisdom. McLeod himself was initially sceptical. Yet, he was not able to dismiss the effects he had observed in his patients after taking chromium. He continued to carefully evaluate his patients' responses and let the evidence speak for itself. By piecing together hundreds of clues from therapy sessions with patients, results from his own single-blind studies and findings from an in-depth study of the medical and scientific literature on chromium, glucose metabolism and insulin resistance, Dr. McLeod eventually derived an explanation for chromium's powerful therapeutic effects. In the last several years, the medical and scientific communities have begun to confirm Dr. McLeod's pioneering findings.
The book also includes questionnaires to determine if insulin resistance is the cause of readers depression and resources for finding additional information on atypical depression and recommended products.
