Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Coping with personal problems, Coping with anxiety & phobias, Self-help & personal development, Assertiveness, motivation & self-esteem

A practical and effective alternative to kicking yourself when you're down. Learning how to wallow constructively will not only help you to reach your potential but also heal from past hurts and feel better about yourself, now.

CONSTRUCTIVE WALLOWING is the first book to cut right to the chase, teaching readers how to accept and feel their feelings with self-compassion for greater emotional health and wellbeing.. while making them laugh from time to time.

It's tempting to turn away from menacing, uncomfortable feelings like anger, grief, or regret; but ignoring them makes them fester and linger. By learning to accept and embrace rather than suppress difficult feelings, readers keep their sense of personal power and gain greater understanding and ultimately esteem for themselves. Feeling bad can actually lead to feeling better, faster! This practical book, full of practical insight, humour and compassion will enable readers to get in touch with their whole self, and live fuller, happier lives.

Contents include how to:

Escape from the trap of self-criticism by taking your own side
Use the T-R-U-T-H Technique to get out from under bad feelings, fast
Neutralize old emotions that zap your energy and undermine your happiness
Allow painful feelings to let go of you, instead of the other way around
Break long-standing relationship patterns by healing old wounds
Build a healthier, more loving relationship with the most important person in your life - you!
