People are hungry for more meaning at work. OFFICE YOGI, an illustrated journal of 100+ journal prompts, meets this need. With humor and insight, OFFICE YOGI guides journalers into mindfulness, meaning, and a richer work life. A recent Gallup poll found that a shocking 87% of employees feel actively disengaged at work. And yet, these same employees are more stressed than ever. A 2017 study of more than 1,000 office workers found that 52 percent felt more stressed than they had only one year earlier. What's the cause? Researchers and psychologists point to the pace of changing technology, information overload, lack of effective communication skills, the need for tools to combat stress, as well as the simple ergonomics of constant sitting. With equal parts inspiration, reflection, instruction, and play, OFFICE YOGI offers a solution. Each of the book's 100+ journal prompts brings the reader deeper into mindfulness, relaxation, and closer to deriving meaning from their work. Think WRECK THIS JOURNAL meets THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE.

This generation of parents is overwhelmed with parenting advice; Carla Naumburg sets out to remind them that they have everything they need to raise healthy, happy children. Mindful parenting is about paying attention to what is going on with your children and yourself without judging it or freaking out about it or thinking everyone, including yourself and your child, should be doing something differently. In Parenting in the Present Moment, Naumburg shares what truly matters in parenting—connecting with children in ways that are meaningful to them and you, staying grounded amidst the craziness of parenting, and staying present for whatever life throws your way. With reassuring, compassionate storytelling, she weaves the most current theories—about healthy relationships, compassionate self-care, and mindfulness—throughout vignettes of her own chaotic childhood and parental struggles. She shows how mindfulness creates a solid foundation for any style of parenting, regardless of your cultural background, socio-economic status, or family structure. She also introduces the STAY model for tough times: Stop whatever it is you’re doing; Take a Breath; Attune to you thoughts and those of your child; and Yield to what is happening so you can respond from a place of connection and compassion. Parenting is an ongoing journey that constantly challenges every parent. Parenting in the Present Moment will help each family find its own way.

“Illuminating, thought-provoking, and hilariously honest. You’ll never look at fasting, yoga, or meditation the same way again.” —Robyn Harding, USA Today bestselling author of The Swap Bridget Jones meets A. J. Jacobs in Wellmania, an in-depth, laugh-out-loud exploration of the best and worst of the wellness industry. Cold-pressed juices, “clean” eating, colonic vacations, mindfulness apps, and Paleo: health-care trends and miracle diets seem to be more plentiful each year. But do any of these tactics actually work? What does “wellness” even mean? In Wellmania, longtime journalist Brigid Delaney tackles the good, the bad, and the just-a-little-ridiculous of the wellness industry, using herself as the guinea pig. Starting with a brutal 101-day fast, she leaves behind her thirty-something-year-old lifestyle of late-night parties and all-day hangovers to test the things that are supposed to make us healthy and whole: yoga classes, meditation, CBT, Balinese healing, silent retreats, group psychotherapy, and more. Writing with self-deprecating wit and refreshing honesty, she sorts through the fads and expensive hype to find out what actually works, while asking, What does all this say about us? Is total wellness even possible? And why do you start to smell so bad when you haven’t eaten in seven days? According to comedian Judith Lucy, the result is “a bloody entertaining read that leaves you wondering whether you want to do yoga or get mindlessly drunk and despair at the state of the world.” “I laughed so hard, I choked on a doughnut reading this book. I’m so glad Brigid Delaney tried all of this crazy stuff so I never have to.” —Jen Mann, New York Times bestselling author
