Consequently few of us realise our potential.

Grounded in scientific research, this book gives you 50 ways to get more from your brain. You’ll gain an understanding of how your brain works and how you can boost your mental performance. You’ll discover how to improve your focus and memory, and how you can enhance your problem solving skills. You’ll even learn how you can program your brain and keep it younger for longer.

My 31 Practices

Do you want a life with a clear purpose? Do you want to be happy and less stressed? Do you want to be the best you can be? For most of us, Yes is an easy answer, but to do this is more of a challenge. This book provides a powerful and personal framework to help you find your own superhero and to be the best version of yourself.
It all starts with your core personal values, giving a foundation for the way you want to behave. Values are like a moral compass, guiding us when we face choice and uncertainty. When our behaviour is not aligned with our values, we feel stressed. But when our hearts, minds and bodies are aligned, then we find great personal power. Part workbook, part guidebook, My 31 Practices will help you to identify the right values for your life and then translate them into day-to-day behaviour.

The Financial Wellbeing Book

One of the biggest enemies of our general wellbeing is stress; and one of the biggest causes of stress is concern about money. This book provides a simple and practical guide to planning your daily and long-term finances by understanding your objectives and motivations. In doing so, it offers respite from the anxiety and stress caused by money problems. The author, an experienced financial adviser, argues that the key to financial wellbeing is to “know thyself” in order to allow decisions to be made, and to ensure those decisions are the rights ones for you. This is underpinned by having control of your daily finances, the ability to cope with a financial shock, to be able to have options in life, to have identifiable goals and a clear path to achieve them, and to ensure clarity and security for those we leave behind.
