Real Strength: Build Your Resilience and Bounce Back from Anything by Psychologies Magazine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Real Strength: Build Your Resilience and Bounce Back from Anything” is another book from the psychologies magazine range by Capstone (A Wiley Brand) and I really enjoy these types of books which have questionnaires to help work out what type of assistance you need, and real techniques and actual therapies to help you through and beyond difficult situations.

“Real Strength” is about bouncing back from anything and teaches you how to deal with change, problems and opportunities in a healthy way, whilst building resilience and physiological strength in order to thrive , despite adversity.

I am sure I cannot be the only one to say that life has certainly chucked more than a handful of obstacles my way. I’m pretty good at handling that and often get told how positive I am – sometimes to a fault (so I’m told – as if I’m ignorant! Hell no!) But from what I understand from this book, being positive is nothing to do with ignorance and has everything to do with seeing the world / issue for what it is, and dealing with it the best way possible. Obstacles are challenges to overcome. I don’t bury my head in the sand, I’ve just learnt how to be resilient and accept things I cannot change.

What I love about this book, is that it takes my way of thinking even further and offers some great techniques to help you bounce back from anything.

“Real Strength” is about taking control of your life, tackling uncertainty and learning to not only see things differently, but to manage your emotions, cope with change and being more aware of the here and now. To relieve ourselves from those stress-inducing worrying thoughts that can consume us.

Each chapter encourages you to take action via exercises and real life stories. It’s a comprehensive, encouraging book and another one of which I have spent time reading and highlighting the pages. Yes I do write and draw in these self-help books, I fully believe it’s the best way to learn! Very happy to add this to my Capstone Collection.

    I’ve done that before with highlighting and writing in self-help books like a textbook, it’s a great way to have the messages sink in a little more. I used to read Psychologies Magazine (years ago before it filled with adverts & became eye-wateringly expensive). I quite like the sound of this book! x

  2. fuonlyknew – Voracious reader and love to do reviews. Will review yours! Love Doritos and chocolate. A fan of furry friends. I'm afraid of things that go bump in the night! I do reviews at request when time allows. Prefer print versions but also will do ebooks. If I can stand to let them go, I use some print review copies for giveaways.. Also like doing ARC reviews to promote authors and their books. I encourage authors to comment. My reviews are posted on my blog, Amazon, Goodreads, Shelfari, Smashwords and Barnes&Noble.

    I wish I would follow through after reading books like this. I take notes, get all excited, and then close the book and my motivation stops. I’m glad you enjoyed this one.
