Powerful techniques to eliminate anxiety from your life today The new updated version We all have those moments when we feel like the world is just about to fall on us. At that time, butterflies cannot even seem to describe the feeling of helplessness, tension, and anxiety that goes on in our mind. We feel that we would be delighted if we could just disappear and emerge when certain situations (like an interview, an exam, a medical test, a speech, an important business meeting etc.) in our life have passed. But the good thing is that we don´t run away; we stick there until the end, only to realize that whatever we feared wasn´t as bad as we had convinced ourselves previously. While this is completely normal, there are times when this can be so common that it affects your everyday life. Obviously, when this happens, you have crossed the line between normal and abnormal. Abnormal in this case might mean that you avoid certain situations or experiences because of the fear, worry, and insecurity, pass on opportunities because of fear, fail to meet new people because of fear, and avoid many other things simply because the fear within you is just unbearable and cannot let you do whatever it is you wanted. Becoming anxious for something new or exciting is absolutely normal, but feeling anxious the whole day is worrying. Do you feel shy or insecure when socializing with others? Do you feel incapable of accomplishing your tasks? Do you often feel insecure about yourself and cannot face people confidently? If so, then you probably have an anxiety disorder. Obviously, if you are anxious much of the time, you are probably likely to achieve very little in life, whether it is in the social, business, or professional front. 1. Language: English.

Leslie Charteris’ square-jawed, blue-eyed hero loved, fought and stole his way through Europe in the 1930s, endlessly pursuing blondes, baddies and boodle. Adored by women and feared by his foes, he was known as ‘The Saint’ after the calling card he left at the scenes of his crimes - a sketch of a stick figure with a halo. In ´Saint Overboard´, a villain plans to steal a shipment of sunken treasure. Simon Templar will go to any lengths to stop him - even under the sea. ´The Saint Plays with Fire´ sees our hero investigating a country house fire - and uncovering a Fascist conspiracy to seize power in France. Starring Paul Rhys as Simon Templar and with Patsy Kensit as Loretta and Fiona Fullerton as Valerie, these two thrilling dramas are full of the charm and verve of the original stories. 1.

A young woman with a dangerous power she barely understands. A smuggler with secrets of his own. A country torn between a merciless colonial army, a terrifying tyrant, and a feared rebel leader. The first audiobook in a new trilogy from the acclaimed Heidi Heilig blends traditional storytelling with ephemera for a lush, pause-resisting tale of escape and rebellion. For a Muse of Fire will captivate fans of Sabaa Tahir, Leigh Bardugo, and Renée Ahdieh.Jetta’s family is famed as the most talented troupe of shadow players in the land. With Jetta behind the scrim, their puppets seem to move without string or stick - a trade secret, they say. In truth, Jetta can see the souls of the recently departed and bind them to the puppets with her blood.But ever since the colonizing army conquered their country, the old ways are forbidden, so Jetta must never show, never tell. Her skill and fame are her family’s way to earn a spot aboard the royal ship to Aquitan, where shadow plays are the latest rage and where rumor has it the mad emperor has a spring that cures his ills - and could cure Jetta’s, too. Because seeing spirits is not the only thing that plagues her. But as rebellion seethes and as Jetta meets a young smuggler, she will face truths and decisions she never imagined - and safety will never seem so far away.Heidi Heilig creates a vivid, rich world inspired by Asian cultures and French colonialism. Her characters are equally complex and nuanced, including the bipolar heroine. Told from Jetta’s first-person point of view, as well as with chapters authored as play scripts and ephemera such as telegrams and letters, For a Muse of Fire is an engrossing journey that weaves magic, simmering romance, and the deep bonds of family with the high stakes of epic adventure. 1.

The title of the book explains exactly who the target audience is. I have suffered from the effects of morbid obesity all my life. Over a year ago, I was so overweight my Doctor feared imminent death. My blood pressure was 225/125. It was panic stations. I had made two fundamental mistakes. One, I had ignore the silent killer signs. The other? After an accident, I had turned to food through boredom and feeling sorry for myself. I put on a vast amount of weight on top of an already big problem. I had to go buy 8XL clothing, and the tailor I used for years was virtually in tears at the sight of me being so big. My friends were reluctant to invite me out walking, I was wheezing so badly they thought I would pass out. You would see me walking around on a sunny day with an umbrella, using it as a walking stick. I didn´t want to admit I had allowed myself to get to the point I actually needed a walking stick. When I say walking about - I was so bad I had to calculate if I could make it to the corner store and back. That´s how bad it got - and people that knew me in the community were horrified to see me in that condition. I truly was on the tipping point. Now? A 10 mile walk wouldn´t bother me. I can hammer away at boxing bags to my heart is content, do 50 lengths of the pool, you name it. As you will hear in the book, millions of people are now disabled and bedridden due to obesity. I get it - I was almost in the same boat. A year later I could row a boat for hours if I wanted to. Like other morbidly obese people, I had tried every diet under the sun and failed. Now, I´m fit again. What brought about the change? It was a realization that I had been concentrating on the wrong thing. I kicked the emotional bully into outer space, and got my life back, slowly but surely. Slowly but surely - this is not a ´´lose weight quick,´´ book 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ron Herczig.
