Originally published in 1995, the first edition of Managing Your Mind established a unique place in the self-help book market. A blend of tried-and-true psychological counseling and no-nonsense management advice grounded in the principles of CBTand other psychological treatments, the book straddled two types of self-help literature, arguing that in one's personal and professional life, the way to success is the same. By adopting the practical strategies that mental health experts Butler and Hope have developed over years of clinical research and practice, one can develop the "mental fitness" necessary to resolve one's personal and interpersonal challenges at home and work and to live a productive, satisfying life. The first edition addressed how to develop key skills to mental fitness (e.g., managing one's time better, facing and solving problems better, keeping things in perspective, learning to relax, etc.), how to improve one's relationships, how to beat anxiety and depression, and how to establish a good mind-body balance. For this new edition, Butler and Hope have updated all preexisting material and have added five new chapters-on sexuality and intimate relationships; anger in relationships; recent traumatic events and their aftermath; loss and bereavement; and dealing with the past.

The Yogasutra of Patanjali is described as an owner’s manual for the human mind and how the mind can be used in the quest for Truth and The Managing Mind presents this most important text on Yoga and meditation in clear and straightforward English. Devadatta Kali’s commentary endeavors to draw out the meaning of Patanjali’s text in a coherent and modern form that will serve the real life needs of the spiritual practitioner. He also includes the original Sanskrit text for those who seek a more in-depth understanding of the hidden dimension of the Yogasutra, giving a word-by-word analysis with multiple possibilities for the meaning of the text. In addition, Devadatta Kali provides his own original interpretations of the meaning of several of the sutras. He sheds new light on their classical interpretation, which have often missed the point by overlooking the language of metaphor.

We can all get angry from time to time but when it gets out of hand it can have a serious impact on many aspects of our lives. As well as having an impact on our physical and mental health and our ability to engage in healthy relationships, it can also potentially have an enormous impact on society. The media is rife with stories of domestic violence, tragic stories of shaken babies, road-rage incidents and bullying. Mounting evidence suggests that all this anger can be harmful to us in a number of different ways. As well as the enormously damaging impact chronic anger can have on our relationships with other people, it is being linked to health problems such as cardiovascular disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and mental illnesses such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This invaluable self-help guide will enable the reader to recognise their personal anger problems, gain an understanding of what lies behind their anger, and use techniques based on Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) to deal with their anger more effectively. CFT was initially developed by Professor Paul Gilbert, author of The Compassionate Mind, to treat those with high levels of self-criticism. It uses the proven, research-based techniques of CBT and other therapies with a special focus on the importance of developing inner compassion, in order to alleviate feelings of shame, develop a more balanced outlook and promote resilience. It incorporates elements of mindfulness and Tibetan Buddhism with recent research on human development and studies of the brain. It is increasingly used to treat a wide range of emotional and psychological problems including depression, overeating, shyness, trauma, anxiety and anger.

"The world of today brings us face-to-face with situations and contexts which are constant sources of stress. Managing stress, and not stress removal or elimination, is the mantra of the present. We are not aiming to achieve a stress-free society; instead, what we are attempting is to learn how to keep the level of stress within control, to accept its positive dimensions, and not allow its negative dimensions to have adverse effects. Stress is thus a valuable learning experience which brings inner strength and regulates our mental/spiritual health, as well as, gives a fillip to our physical well-being. This book addresses to all these aspects of stress management and is a practical guide for those who want to translate these techniques into practice to make their lives more liveable. "

Every human being, regardless of his or her origin or upbringing, is endowed with a marvelous and mysterious apparatus called the mind. It works twenty-four hours a day, producing conditions, events, and experiences in each of our lives. These conditions always take shape in the mind. Your mind is always busy weaving your tomorrow, a tomorrow either of joy or of sorrow, depending upon the thoughts you entertain in your mind. Your thoughts are the tools with which you work and the only tools you have to shape your destiny. Your experience in the outer world only reveals what is lurking in the secret chambers of your very own mind. Your experience is a mere reflection of your thoughts. For example, you look into the mirror and you don't like the face you see. If you are a woman, you'll change your makeup and hairstyle to look better. If you are a man, you'll cob your hair, trim your mustache, or shave to look better. But you will not break the mirror because you know that the mirror is only reflecting the face you have. Similarly, your experience in life is a mirror reflecting your inner thoughts. Our circumstances are merely a "looking glass," a mirror of reflection. But in our daily life, without realizing what we are doing, we very often try to break the mirror. For example, if you are not very happy with your income, you start criticizing your employer, the job, your upbringing, and everybody else for your shortcomings. You criticize your boss who makes more money; you talk maliciously about the chief executive of a big corporation who makes a million dollars a year. They are not going to change your conditions but are merely reflecting your thoughts. To change the conditions, you have to change the causes your thoughts. Blaming your poor economic condition is like blaming the mirror for your uncharming face. Think about it. After you study this book, you will learn not to blame the mirror for your poor image. You will consciously start working with causes, instead of conditions.

The Mind of the LeaderThe Mind of the Leader

Join the global movement that's making corporations more people-centric to achieve great results. The world is facing a global leadership crisis. Seventy-seven percent of leaders think they do a good job of engaging their people, yet 88 percent of employees say their leaders don't engage enough. There is also a high level of suffering in the workplace: 35 percent of employees would forgo a pay raise to see their leaders fired. This is an enormous waste of human talent--despite the fact that $46 billion is spent each year on leadership development. Based on extensive research, including assessments of more than 35,000 leaders and interviews with 250 C-level executives, The Mind of the Leader concludes that organizations and leaders aren't meeting employees' basic human needs of finding meaning, purpose, connection, and genuine happiness in their work. But more than a description of the problem, The Mind of the Leader offers a radical, yet practical, solution. To solve the leadership crisis, organizations need to put people at the center of their strategy. They need to develop managers and executives who lead with three core mental qualities: mindfulness, selflessness, and compassion. Using real-world inspirational examples from Marriott, Accenture, McKinsey & Company, LinkedIn, and many more, The Mind of the Leader shows how this new kind of leadership turns conventional leadership thinking upside down. It represents a radical redefinition of what it takes to be an effective leader--and a practical, hard-nosed solution to every organization's engagement and execution problems.

Physical health is relatively easy to measure. We can time how fast one can run 100 meters, or measure the maximum weight a person can lift. To measure mental health is not that easy and the lack of mental health is not obvious either. But good mental health is as important as or even more important than, physical health, for our well-being. Book catalogues have many books on how to increase physical fitness, but few on improving mental health. I have practised psychiatry for over two decades and seen most of the mental illnesses described in textbooks. I have talked to many people who, though not mentally ill, lead unhappy lives, and cause misery to those close to them. These individuals suffer from poor mental health. I cannot help these persons with medicines. However, I know techniques and principles of improving mental health derived from quality research. The general public does not have easy access to this knowledge. This book is my attempt to fill this void. Raveen Hanwella Author In my youth, I turned to philosopher Bertrand Russell's book The Conquest of Happiness, published in 1930, in the hopes of improving my mind. But modern psychiatry is more reliable than old philosophy. So in my old age, I turn to psychiatrist Raveen Hanwella's How to Improve Your Mind for guidance. So should you, if you are sane.
