Don't let problem people get to you! Whether it’s a manager who keeps moving the goal posts, an uncooperative colleague, negative friend, or critical family member, some people are just plain hard to get along with. Often, your immediate response is to shrink or sulk, become defensive or attack. But there are smarter moves to make when dealing with difficult people. This book explains how to cope with a range of situations with difficult people and to focus on what you can change.
"Excellent help book"
Best-selling personal development author Gill Hasson is back, and this time she's here to help with something that affects all people at some point in their lives: anxiety. Worries and anxieties are familiar to us all. Worrying can be helpful when it prompts you to take action and solve a problem, but unrelenting doubts, fears, and negative possibilities can dominate your mind, affecting your ability to manage your everyday life and well-being, your sleep and appetite, your social life, and your ability to concentrate. But it doesn't need to be like this
Be calm, collected and in the moment. Too often, life just races by. You don’t fully experience what’s happening now, because you’re too busy thinking about what needs doing tomorrow, or distracted by what happened yesterday. And all the time your mind is chattering with commentary or judgement. Mindfulness allows you to experience the moment instead of just rushing through it. Being mindful opens you up to new ideas and new ways of doing things, reducing stress and increasing your enjoyment of life.
From the author of the bestselling Mindfulness: Be Mindful. Live in the Moment, Emotional Intelligence is fast becoming the skill to master that will unlock your true potential. You’ve probably noticed that it’s not the smartest people that are the most successful or the most fulfilled in life; being clever, talented, or skilled is not enough. It’s your ability to manage your feelings, other people and your interactions with them that makes the difference.
Achtsamkeit können wir praktizieren, indem wir still verweilen, uns auf unsere Atmung konzentrieren und bewusst auf unsere Gedanken und Gefühle achten. Achtsamkeit in dieser strengen Form kennen wir unter dem Begriff Meditation. Achtsamkeit, wie dieses Buch sie beschreibt, kennt keine Regeln. Wir achten bewusst auf alles, was uns im Alltag widerfährt, beispielsweise während wir essen, uns zu Fuß oder im Auto fortbewegen oder Hausarbeit verrichten.
