<b>Courtney Carver shows us the power of simplicity to improve our health, build more meaningful relationships, and relieve stress in our professional and personal lives.</b><br /><br />We are often on a quest for more—we give in to pressure every day to work more, own more, and do more. For Carver, this constant striving had to come to a stop when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Stress was like gasoline on the fire of symptoms, and it became clear that she needed to root out the physical and psychological clutter that were the source of her debt and discontent. <br />     In this book, she shows us how to pursue practical minimalism so we can create more with less—more space, more time, and even more love. Carver invites us to look at the big picture, discover what's most important to us, and reclaim lightness and ease by getting rid of all the excess things.

<b>The author of <i>The Willpower Instinct</i> delivers a controversial and groundbreaking new book that overturns long-held beliefs about stress. </b><br />  <br /> More than forty-four percent of Americans admit to losing sleep over stress. And while most of us do everything we can to reduce it, Stanford psychologist and bestselling author Kelly McGonigal, Ph.D., delivers a startling message: <i>Stress isn’t bad.</i> In <i>The Upside of Stress,</i> McGonigal highlights new research indicating that stress can, in fact, make us stronger, smarter, and happier—if we learn how to embrace it.<br />  <br /> <i>The Upside of Stress</i> is the first book to bring together cutting-edge discoveries on the correlation between resilience—the human capacity for stress-related growth—and mind-set, the power of beliefs to shape reality. As she did in <i>The Willpower Instinct, </i>McGonigal combines science, stories, and exercises into an engaging and practical book that is both entertaining and life-changing, showing you:<br /><br />   •  how to cultivate a mind-set to embrace stress <br />   •  how stress can provide focus and energy <br />   •  how stress can help people connect and strengthen close relationships <br />   •  why your brain is built to learn from stress, and how to increase its ability to learn from challenging experiences <br />  <br /> McGonigal’s TED talk on the subject has already received more than 7 million views. Her message resonates with people who know they can’t eliminate the stress in their lives and want to learn to take advantage of it. <i>The Upside of Stress</i> is not a guide to getting rid of stress, but a guide to getting <i>better</i> at stress, by understanding it, embracing it, and using it.

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER • An urgently needed guide to the alarming increase in anxiety and stress experienced by girls from elementary school through college, from the author of <i>Untangled</i></b><br /><br /><b>“An invaluable read for anyone who has girls, works with girls, or cares about girls—for everyone!”—Claire Shipman, author of <i>The Confidence Code </i>and <i>The Confidence Code for Girls</i></b><br /><br /> Though anxiety has risen among young people overall, studies confirm that it has skyrocketed in girls. Research finds that the number of girls who said that they often felt nervous, worried, or fearful jumped 55 percent from 2009 to 2014, while the comparable number for adolescent boys has remained unchanged. As a clinical psychologist who specializes in working with girls, Lisa Damour, Ph.D., has witnessed this rising tide of stress and anxiety in her own research, in private practice, and in the all-girls’ school where she consults. She knew this had to be the topic of her new book.<br /><br /> In the engaging, anecdotal style and reassuring tone that won over thousands of readers of her first book,<i> Untangled</i>, Damour starts by addressing the facts about psychological pressure. She explains the surprising and underappreciated <i>value </i>of stress and anxiety: that stress can helpfully stretch us beyond our comfort zones, and anxiety can play a key role in keeping girls safe. When we emphasize the <i>benefits</i> of stress and anxiety, we can help our daughters take them in stride.<br /><br /> But no parents want their daughter to suffer from emotional overload, so Damour then turns to the many facets of girls’ lives where tension takes hold: their interactions at home, pressures at school, social anxiety among other girls and among boys, and their lives online. As readers move through the layers of girls’ lives, they’ll learn about the critical steps that adults can take to shield their daughters from the toxic pressures to which our culture—including we, as parents—subjects girls.<br /><br /> Readers who know Damour from <i>Untangled</i> or the <i>New York Times,</i> or from her regular appearances on <i>CBS News,</i> will be drawn to this important new contribution to understanding and supporting today’s girls.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Under Pressure</i></b><br /><br /> “Truly a must-read for parents, teachers, coaches, and mentors wanting to help girls along the path to adulthood.”<b>—Julie Lythcott-Haims, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>How to Raise an Adult</i> </b>

<p><b>Renowned primatologist Robert Sapolsky offers a completely revised and updated edition of his most popular work, with over 225,000 copies in print</b></p><p> Now in a third edition, Robert M. Sapolsky's acclaimed and successful <i>Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers</i> features new chapters on how stress affects sleep and addiction, as well as new insights into anxiety and personality disorder and the impact of spirituality on managing stress.<br />As Sapolsky explains, most of us do not lie awake at night worrying about whether we have leprosy or malaria. Instead, the diseases we fear-and the ones that plague us now-are illnesses brought on by the slow accumulation of damage, such as heart disease and cancer. When we worry or experience stress, our body turns on the same physiological responses that an animal's does, but we do not resolve conflict in the same way-through fighting or fleeing. Over time, this activation of a stress response makes us literally sick. <br />Combining cutting-edge research with a healthy dose of good humor and practical advice, <i>Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers</i> explains how prolonged stress causes or intensifies a range of physical and mental afflictions, including depression, ulcers, colitis, heart disease, and more. It also provides essential guidance to controlling our stress responses. This new edition promises to be the most comprehensive and engaging one yet.</p>
