Maximum Mental Health - with Incremental Gainz

Maximum Mental Health - with Incremental Gainz

September 18, 2020

Our webinar with Dave from Incremental Gainz guides you through...

- What is Mental Health? - Self-Care - Peer Support

We also have PDF document which complements this webinar.  Please contact us to obtain your copy.

Further reading to go alongside this video which would be of benefit (but is not essential) to a greater understanding:

 

8 Weeks Towards Maximum Health - Katy Sheridan

Keeping a journal help us to stay focused and maintain a healthy mind with positivity at the forefront of our minds. It is easy to get tied up thinking about all the things that need doing now and not giving yourself time to focus on what you really want. This journal will guide you towards your ultimate goals. It can be used as a standalone item or as part of a wider project from Maximum Edge CIC, including podcasts, webinars and online resources. 

 

The Chimp Paradox – Dr Steve Peters

If you sabotage your own happiness and success, struggling to make sense of yourself or let your emotions sometimes dictate your life, this book is an incredibly powerful mind management model that can help you become a happy, confident, healthier and more successful person. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Chimp-Paradox-Management-Programme-Confidence/dp/009193558X Bounce - Matthew Syed Matthew Syed's dazzling investigation of high achievement draws on the stories of sports stars and the most up-to-date science to uncover the surprising factors that lead to world beating success. Bounce will revolutionise our ideas of what it takes to get to the top. 

 

Meditations – Marcus Aurelius (Gregory Hayes translation)

A translation of one of the most important texts of Western philosophy. Marcus's insights and advice - on everything from living in the world to coping with adversity and interacting with others - have made The Meditations required reading for statesmen and philosophers alike, while generations of ordinary readers have responded to the straightforward intimacy of his style. 

 

Don't Sweat The Small Stuff – Richard Carlson

So many of us would like to live our lives in a calmer and less stressful way, and be able to let go of our problems. This is the book that can show you how to stop letting the little things in life drive you crazy.

 

Mindfulness – Mark Williams

If you want to free yourself from anxiety and stress, and feel truly at ease with yourself, then read this book. (Ruby Wax) One of the best mindfulness books out there -- it's a summary of the science behind using it, to regain a sense of purpose, and a practical guide on how to do it (Business Traveller) 

 

Mindset – Carol Dweck

An utterly compelling story of how the way we think shapes our success. Essential reading for anyone with aspirations. If you manage any people or if you are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read Mindset. (Guy Kawasaki, author of The Art of the Start.) 

 

Live Your Truth – Kamal Ravikant

We don't stumble accidentally into an amazing life. It takes a conscious commitment to figuring out what we stand for - finding our truth. It begins by looking inside ourselves, because when it rises from within, we have no choice but to express it, to live it. That is when magic happens: fulfillment, happiness, relationships and success. The question is: How? "Live Your Truth" is a guide to this crucial journey of self-exploration and personal discovery. The follow up to his runaway bestseller "Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It," Kamal Ravikant takes you on his journey, in the hope that it will help you find your truth and inspire you to live it. Prepare to be your best self. 

 

The Science of Storytelling – Will Storr

Stories mould who we are, from our character to our cultural identity. They drive us to act out our dreams and ambitions and shape our politics and beliefs. In this scalpel-sharp, thought-provoking audiobook, Will Storr applies dazzling psychological research and cutting-edge neuroscience to the foundations of our myths and archetypes, and shows how we can use these tools to tell better stories - and make sense of our chaotic modern world.
