This Book Will Make You - Range

The ‘This Book Will…’ series published by Quercus aims to make psychology accessible and easy to understand. Based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) they’re practical, straight-forward and packed full of strategies that are proven to work.

Each book provides clear and simple ways to overcome problems leading to immediate results (as well as long-term change). Helping you to feel your best and manage any difficulties you might be facing.

The series is now published in ten languages and launched in the US.

Mindfulness is a practice of awareness, helping you to become more focused on the present, on the life you’re actually living rather than a past that’s been and gone and a future that hasn’t arrived yet. It’s about choosing what to pay attention to, rather than aimlessly following your mind’s version of events. It teaches you to notice your mind’s habits and ways of working, giving you a choice in whether you wish to act on its advice.

By becoming more aware of what’s going on in your own head and body, you’ll be able to stop your thoughts and feelings consuming you, sweeping you away on a tidal wave of stress, anxiety, fear or regret and causing you to behave in unhelpful ways. Being mindful means acknowledging your current thoughts and emotions without judgement, for example, accepting that thoughts are just thoughts, feelings are just feelings and that they don’t define who you are. Mindfulness gives you choices: “Does that really matter?” or “Do I really want to do that?”

Learning to identify specific thoughts and moods and understanding their effects will allow you to live in the moment, to appreciate life, to choose how you want to live and to be aware of the here and now rather than streaming though and missing all the good bits.
