I’ve written a 49 page ebook called “7 steps to more wellbeing” containing seven processes that you can use to feel better about yourself and life general.
The book is a gift for anyone who signs up to the Practical Wellbeing Newsletter (you can do that in the box at the top right of the website)
The book includes the following seven chapters
Chapter 1: Decide What You Don’t Want – most people have a long list of don’t wants. Don’t wants are a popular way of keeping track of being unhappy with your current situation and wanting to change. Unfortunately they have a hidden disadvantage – they tend to keep you focussed on where you are, not, where you want to be. In this chapter you’ll get a very simple way to turn your don’t wants into something more useful.
Chapter 2: Write a Letter From The Future – Everyone knows that 20-20 hindsight is a wonderful thing. What if , when faced with a challenge, you could have your hindsight in advance? In this chapter you’ll learn a very simple trick of the imagination that lets you get free advice from your future self.
Chapter 3: Accept Yourself – When we are the problem, we have a problem. If you spend a lot of time criticising and finding fault with yourself it can eat into your wellbeing. Self blame and condemnation is a common problem. This chapter shows you a simple way to begin to soften self blame and condemnation even if you think you deserve it.
Chapter 4: Sit In The Happy Chair – A simple and unexpected alternative to affirmations that can help you change the way you feel. This approach lets you acknowledge the reality of your situation and have access to more resourceful feelings and states of mind.
Chapter 5: Soak In Good Feelings – If you are the kind of person who brushes off the 49 good things that happened today to sink into the one bad experience and wallow in misery then this process is for you. Because of an innate tendency of the mind, many of us find it hard to resist feeling bad and it can be difficult to enjoy the good feelings that life brings us. This process gives you permission to dwell in pleasant experiences
Chapter 6: Enjoy Gratitude – Gratitude and gratitude lists have been a popular part of spiritual practice and the self help literature. In this chapter you will learn a simple way to take advantage of gratitude and a new way to sink deeply into gratitude to really enjoy those feelings.
Chapter 7: Direct Your Attention – Where you focus your attention can have a big effect on your mental health and wellbeing. It won’t come as a surprise to know that dwelling on negative experiences in our lives makes us feel bad. In this chapter you will learn a very easy to use technique that will help you focus on the good things in life and enjoy them.
