If you struggle with low self-esteem, or you’re seeking positive and effective ways of building a healthy sense of self-worth, this much-anticipated fourth edition of the best-selling classic by Matthew McKay is your go-to guide. This fully revised edition features an innovative application of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to self-esteem, and utilizes updated cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you create positive change and thrive.

Circumstances and status can affect self-esteem—many factors can contribute to the way we see ourselves—but the one contributing factor that all people who struggle with low self-esteem have in common is our thoughts. Of course we all have a better chance of feeling good about ourselves when things are going well, but it’s really our interpretation of our circumstances that can cause trouble, regardless of what they are.

This revised and updated fourth edition of the best-selling Self-Esteem uses proven-effective methods of CBT and relevant components of ACT to help you raise low self-esteem by working on the way you interpret your life. You’ll learn how to differentiate between healthy and unhealthy self-esteem, how to uncover and analyze negative self-statements, and how to create new, more objective and positive self-statements to support your self-esteem rather than undermine it. And with cutting-edge material on defusion and values, you’ll learn to let go of judgmental, self-attacking thoughts and act in accordance with what matters to you most, enhancing your sense of self-worth.

If you struggle with low or unhealthy self-esteem, this new edition of Self-Esteem, packed with evidence-based tips and techniques, has everything you need to improve the way you see yourself for better overall well-being.

An Amazon Charts bestseller.

What would it take to make you intervene?

When Ella Longfield overhears two attractive young men flirting with teenage girls on a train, she thinks nothing of it—until she realises they are fresh out of prison and her maternal instinct is put on high alert. But just as she’s decided to call for help, something stops her. The next day, she wakes up to the news that one of the girls—beautiful, green-eyed Anna Ballard—has disappeared.

A year later, Anna is still missing. Ella is wracked with guilt over what she failed to do, and she’s not the only one who can’t forget. Someone is sending her threatening letters—letters that make her fear for her life.

Then an anniversary appeal reveals that Anna’s friends and family might have something to hide. Anna’s best friend, Sarah, hasn’t been telling the whole truth about what really happened that night—and her parents have been keeping secrets of their own.

Someone knows where Anna is—and they’re not telling. But they are watching Ella.

With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house “spark joy” (and which don’t), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo’s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.

Tips on Getting Cheap Last Minute Flights

Booking a last minute flight can be challenging, and getting one that is cheap can be even more so. While these flights are unpredictable, these suggestions can be helpful when you need those tickets.

How to Get Cheap Flights

The simplest way is to check the airline website. Any price cuts / special deals will be announced there. You can also call the airline. They will be more than happy to inform you of their latest promo. Airlines publish their promos on newspapers and magazines, so you should check them out too.

Compare the package deals of the carriers so you can get the best deal. If the offers are just about the same, stick with the airline you regularly use. Loyalty to airlines may entitle you to freebies or reduced ticket costs.

Unless it is really necessary, schedule your trips ahead or after peak season (i.e., Christmas and other holidays). Not only are the flights cheaper, but making reservations will be less of a hassle. If you can manage your departure and return dates, make them Tuesday or Wednesday. You can save some money this way.

Assess the fare carefully. It may include taxes and other charges.

Make sure you understand the ticket limitations too.

Some Tips for Finding Extremely Cheap Last Minute Flights

Start by calling the airline and asking if standby tickets are on offer. If they are available, grab it. The rule in airline ticketing purchasing is to book early, as they are cheaper.

Before you purchase, ensure the ticket allows for standby flight switching without any excess charges. Note: your luggage must be small to be put in the plane; there is no time to check them in during standby flights.

You can also get tickets from airline consolidators. These consolidators buy several discounted tickets and sell them at cheap prices. They are a good option to consider if you need last minute flight tickets. You will often see their tickets are much lower than the official airline price.

Other Suggestions

There are some Internet sites that let you bid for last minute flights. This can be a good choice, as it is possible to get an airline seat at a very low cost. If you want to try it out, make sure to follow the instructions as indicated on the auction site.

You can also try to negotiate with an airline representative. Even if you do not get a discount, you will at least know the various ticket offers and what your options are. Alternatively you can look online and purchase there.

Reminders

Go to the airport as early as possible. Inform the person you want a last minute flight. Your name will be included in the list. Never leave your position unless absolutely necessary. Ask the gate to reconfirm your name on the list.

Sometimes it takes a bit of luck to find extremely cheap last minute flights, but knowledge and preparation play parts too. You simply need to be resourceful and be patient.

$10.33


Sometimes everything sucks. This unique, illustrated guide will help you move past negative thoughts and feelings and discover what truly matters to you.

If you struggle with negative thoughts and emotions, you should know that your pain is real. No one should try to diminish it. Sometimes stuff really does suck and we have to acknowledge it. Worry, sadness, loneliness, anger, and shame are big and important, but they can also get in the way of what really matters. What if, instead of fighting your pain, you realized what really matters to you—and put those things first in life? If you did that, maybe your pain wouldn’t feel so big anymore. Isn’t it worth a try?

Stuff That Sucks offers a compassionate and validating guide to accepting emotions, rather than struggling against them. With this book as your guide, you’ll learn to prioritize your thoughts, feelings, and values. You’ll figure out what you care about the most, and then start caring some more! The skills you’ll learn are based on acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Yes, there are a few written exercises, but this isn’t a workbook. It’s a journey into the stuff that sucks, what makes that sucky stuff suck even more, and how just a few moments each day with the stuff that matters will ultimately transform the stuff that sucks into stuff that is just stuff. Make sense?

Maybe you want to be more creative? Or maybe you simply want to do better in school or be a better friend? This book will show you how to focus on what you really care about, so that all that other sucky stuff doesn’t seem so, well, sucky anymore.
