Get to know your brain to manage stress and trim the body. "Like most people, I was not dealing well with the low levels of continuous stress in my life. Stress had me turning to comfort foods, which tend to be high in fat and sugar, and sometimes to alcohol. It was stress-induced overeating and under-exercising that was wreaking havoc on my body. And my brain was driving it all." This book is not about dieting, as we know, diets may make us fatter and more stressed. Because it is not about WILLPOWER. It is about BRAINPOWER. When neuroscientist Dr Selena Bartlett had this light-bulb moment, she was doing research on alcohol and sugar addiction at the University of California San Francisco. She sat at her desk for hours each day, ate poorly, rarely exercised, and unthinkingly reached for candy and cookies far too often. Then her lab discovered that sugar has exactly the same effect on the brain as alcohol and nicotine--one of the most addictive substances in the world. Then with breakthroughs in brain-imaging technology and neuroplasticity, that is our ability to see how the synapses inbrains fired differently during exercise and over-eating. Selena realized that if your brain can changed by unhealthy habits, so to can you change the brain to get healthy habits. This book is the result of research from her own lab and from the labs of many scientists and her own hard work at recognizing her bad habits, managing stress, losing weight and keeping it off, and exercising each day. In clear, accessible prose, she explains how the more primitive parts of the brain can overwhelm the rational part--what Selena calls having a MiGGi (for the emotional part of the brain) moment. She shows you how to become aware of those moments and how to respond instead of react to them. She tells you how to manage your stress through better eating and through movement--the why as well as the what to do. Selena Bartlett, Ph.D., is a group leader in neuroscience and obesity and a Professor at the Queensland University of Technology. Dr Bartlett has delivered many lectures, seminars, and workshops on the stress and its effects on the brain. She has written more than eighty scientific papers in neuroscience and therapeutics. This book aims to help people understand the brain's plasticity and how you can apply practical neuroscience tools to manage stress and trim the body.
We all want a happy and healthy life but stress locks down our mindset and makes us fat, unhealthy, and unhappy. Dr Bartlett is a neuroscientist that has written a book for the average person. There are six easy to follow principles with exercises and tips to help you train the brain to reduce stress, have a healthy body and happy life.
Semi-retired private investigator, Phillip Stirling, discovers an A4 envelope addressed to a police officer in a taxi. Stirling personally delivers it and thus becomes involuntarily involved with the kidnapping of Felix Mendelsohn: a frail, penny-less, elderly gentleman. Why would anybody want to kidnap such a person? Was this envelope so placed so that he would find it or was this just a co-incidence? Are these the only issues that have to be resolved before he and his much younger land-lady, Jillian West, can resume their normal lives? There are many twists and turns as they endeavour to remain stoic law-abiding citizens with increasing pressure from outside influences making this more and more difficult. As the pieces of this puzzle start to come together, it is apparent that there is a lot more to this mystery than just an A4 envelope. But why?
A Swiss Immigrant’s Heartfelt Life Story! I’m Edith Gross Prigge, here with my first great-grandchild, Cassandra Schulz, in December 1998. My Home is Where My Heart Is—and my heart is right here in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Yet part of me will always belong to the old country since two of my kids and their families still live in Switzerland. I am remarried now and also have four stepchildren and five step-grandchildren. All together we have eight kids now, and four of them live within sixty miles from us. How much better could I have it? Some of my great-grandkids live in the area too, and so we can also be part of their lives. But being retired gave us the time to visit the others more often. Dennis Prigge and I were married in July 2002. He lived in Missouri and I was here in the Northwoods. At first I thought I would move, to be with him, after I retired. Then one day Dennis asked me, “What would you say if we stay right here in Wisconsin?” He said I lit up like a Christmas tree! Oh, yes—I would like to stay right here, where I have lots of family and friends. So in November 2002 we bought this little log cabin. I retired in February 2004, and now we have the rest of our lives to remodel our little log cabin in the woods. It is still a work in progress. But I now can sit back and enjoy the last years of my life, however many it will be. My heart has finally found peace and happiness!
While a short work of only eight verses and a three-page autocommentary, the Investigation of the Percept has inspired epistemologists for centuries and has had a wide-ranging impact in India, Tibet, and China. Dignaga, one of the major figures in Buddhist epistemology, explores issues such as the relation between the mind and its percepts, the problems of idealism and realism, and the nature of intentionality in this brief but profound text. This volume provides a comprehensive history of the text in India and Tibet from 5th century India to the present day. This team of philologists, historians of religion and philosophers who specialize in Tibetan, Sanskrit and Chinese philosophical literature has produced the first study of the text and its entire commentarial tradition. Their approach makes it possible to employ the methods of critical philology and cross-cultural philosophy to provide readers with a rich collection of studies and translations, along with detailed philosophical analyses that open up the intriguing implications of Dign=aga's thought and demonstrate the diversity of commentarial approaches to his text. The comprehensive nature of the work reveals the richness of commentary in Indian and Tibetan Buddhism and shows surprising parallels between the modern West and traditional Buddhist philosophy.
