Publisher Comments:

A practical guide to freeing oneself from anxiety and stress, offering positive, effective advice that focuses on resilience and renewal

This book is about harnessing the power of resilience to transform our lives in troubled times while acknowledging and learning to live with our vulnerability. In the face of tragedy, human nature is to regroup and construct a new normal. Resilience is the muscle we develop in tough times to cope with the next challenge; it's what allows us to bend and not break. We have had an economic earthquake and the landscape of many lives has been changed beyond recognition—but, we're still here. The book's message is about adaptation, resilience, and survival. It's also about taking control of our lives from crippling worry, anger, and poor self-esteem; the feelings that keep us stuck; and about finding a balance so that we can face, feel, adapt to, and transform our new reality. Made up of short chapters on the feelings that bind us to our past and preconceived notions of normal, with step-by-step exercises we can use to free ourselves to enable us to live fuller lives, this is a plain-language guide to being a real person in tough times. It also contains reflections and poems to raise, soothe, and stretch the human spirit.

Synopsis:

A plain-language guide to taking back control of your life in an ever-changing world

Do you sometimes feel stuck or have the sense that life is passing you by? Would you like to feel happier and more fulfilled, but feel unsure how to get there? In Say Yes to Life, psychologist and psychotherapist Dr. Linda Finnegan and well-known broadcaster, author, and motivational speaker Christy Kenneally look at ways you can release the power of your own potential to lead a happier and more fulfilling life. In their groundbreaking "Pathways" system they show you how you can overcome obstacles to happiness such as worry, destructive anger, self-doubt, and perfectionism; increase your self-esteem by talking back to negative self-talk; change the way you think and react in difficult situations; discover inner strength you never knew you possessed; and find your pathways to happiness. Say yes to life—today.
