"In Paris (or anywhere else, really) a table for one can be a most delightful place." --Alone Time, as seen in The New York Times A wise, passionate account of the pleasures of traveling solo In our increasingly frantic daily lives, many people are genuinely fearful of the prospect of solitude, but time alone can be both rich and restorative, especially when travelling. Through on-the-ground reporting and recounting the experiences of artists, writers, and innovators who cherished solitude, Stephanie Rosenbloom considers how being alone as a traveller--and even in one's own city--is conducive to becoming acutely aware of the sensual details of the world--patterns, textures, colors, tastes, sounds--in ways that are difficult to do in the company of others. Alone Time is divided into four parts, each set in a different city, in a different season, in a single year. The destinations--Paris, Istanbul, Florence, New York--are all pedestrian-friendly, allowing travelers to slow down and appreciate casual pleasures instead of hurtling through museums and posting photos to Instagram. Each section spotlights a different theme associated with the joys and benefits of time alone and how it can enable people to enrich their lives--facilitating creativity, learning, self-reliance, as well as the ability to experiment and change. Rosenbloom incorporates insights from psychologists and sociologists who have studied solitude and happiness, and explores such topics as dining alone, learning to savor, discovering interests and passions, and finding or creating silent spaces. Her engaging and elegant prose makes Alone Time as warmly intimate an account as the details of a trip shared by a beloved friend--and will have its many readers eager to set off on their own solo adventures.
Wenn Alex Honnold in eine Wand einsteigt, gibt es kein Zurück. Der sympathische 30-Jährige hat die puristischste Form des Kletterns, ohne Seil und Sicherung, in neue Dimensionen geführt. Nun blickt der Star der Szene auf die Highlights seiner Karriere zurück, wie die 400 und 900 Meter langen Free-Solo-Begehungen von »Moonlight Buttress« in Utah und »The Nose« im Yosemite-Nationalpark sowie die »Fitz Traverse« im Alpinstil mit Tommy Caldwell in Alaska. Er verrät, wie er den Spagat zwischen Abgrund und Privatleben schafft. Und erklärt eindrucksvoll, warum Risiko oftmals auch Gewinn bedeuten kann und wie man in Extremsituationen fokussiert bleibt.

Being Alone, whether by circumstance or choice, is not tragic. What is tragic, and so wasteful of the preciousness of life, is that too many of us think we are nothing alone. We seek our happiness and fulfillment, our answers, our very identity in others when we first must find it in ourselves - something we can only do alone. Celebrating Time Alone affirms that it's all right to be alone, to want to be alone, even to be lonely at times because the rewards of solitude can make the deprivations so worthwhile. In the fall of 1996, Lionel Fisher embarked on a cross-country journey in search of men and women who have stretched the envelope of their aloneness to Waldenesque proportions, achieving great emotional clarity in the process. He also spoke with their urban counterparts who, through necessity or choice, prefer to savor their individuality in smaller servings. In a writing style that is at once eloquent and down to earth, the author interweaves their real-life stories with his own insights and experiences to offer counsel, inspiration, and affirmation on living well alone.

Dieses Buch macht Sie stark! Und das sofort! Depression und Burnout sind für Amy Morin keine Fremdworte: Auf den Tag genau drei Jahre, nachdem sie ihre Mutter verloren hatte, starb ihr Mann ganz plötzlich an einem Herzinfarkt. Morin wurde mit nur 26 Jahren Witwe und musste selbst lernen, nach diesen schweren Schicksalsschlägen zu mentaler Stärke zu finden. Sie nutzte den Umbruch zum Neuanfang. Die Psychotherapeutin und Sozialpädagogin Amy Morin weiß: Wir alle sind nur so gut, wie unsere schlechtesten Angewohnheiten es zulassen. Sie sind wie eine schwere Last, sie behindern, ermüden und frustrieren. Sie halten uns davon ab, unser Potential voll auszunutzen, sie führen zu Depression und Burnout. Unsere mentale Stärke und Resilienz steigern wir, indem wir negative Verhaltens- und Denkmuster ablegen, wie z.B. in Selbstmitleid zu versinken, sofortige Erfolge zu erwarten oder das Alleinsein zu fürchten. Freuen wir uns stattdessen auf Veränderungen, besiegen wir unsere Ängste, werden wir glücklich und erfolgreich! Der erste Ratgeber mit einem ganz neuen Ansatz zur Verbesserung der mentalen Stärke und der Resilienz: mitreißend, effektiv und überzeugend!

Achieving inner calm while feeling centered is a human goal that is never easy to master. But why of late do serenity and peace of mind seem further from reach than ever before? The world appears very busy, and finding moments to catch up with ourselves looks to be almost impossible. Something has occurred to change life's circumstances, to make peaceful, restorative time terribly elusive. Alonetime is a great protector of the self and the human spirit. Many in society have railed against it. Some have overused its healing potential. Others have kept it as a special resource both knowingly and unknowingly. ... (Yet) the only way we shall achieve ... ideal love is if we are allowed to flower in the due course and pace of our inner life. Whether or not we were fortunate in our growing up to blossom this way, plenty of time -- alone-times -- awaits us now to make the necessary readjustments.

Today there are many questions about homosexuality as it relates to the Bible and Christians. What does the Bible say about homosexuality? Does genetics, environment, or traumatic life experiences justify homosexuality? What is God’s will for people with same-sex attractions? Does the Bible discriminate against people with same-sex attractions? Is it possible to abstain from homosexual acts? Should not Christians respect all people, regardless of their sexual orientation? Did not Jesus preach tolerance? If so, should not Christians take a permissive view of homosexuality? Does God approve of same-sex marriage? Does God disapprove of homosexuality? If so, how could God tell someone who is attracted to people of the same sex to shun homosexuality, is that not cruel? If one has same-sex attraction, is it possible to avoid homosexuality? How can I as a Christian explain the Bible’s view of homosexuality? IT IS CRUCIAL that Christians always be prepared to reason from the Scriptures, explaining and proving what the Bible does and does not say about homosexuality, yet doing it with gentleness and respect. Andrews will answer these questions and far more. Who Should Read HOMOSEXUALITY - The BIBLE and the CHRISTIAN (1) Anyone struggling with same-sex attraction (2) Anyone trying to leave a homosexual lifestyle (3) Any churchgoer looking for an apologetic tool on homosexuality (4) Any pastor looking for a tool to better counsel those struggling with same-sex attraction or leave a homosexual lifestyle

In For As I Think in My Heart--So I Am: Combining Biblical Counseling with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy , Edward D. Andrews offers practical and biblical insights on a host of issues, from the challenge of forgiveness to eating disorders, anger, alcoholism, depression, anxiety, and many others. Based on Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV): "For as he thinks in his heart, so is he," Andrews' text works from the position that if we can change the way that we think, we can change the way that we behave. For As I Think in My Heart enables readers to examine the lies and half-truths they tell themselves repeatedly; lies, which as one argues, contribute to mental distress and a wide range of issues in their lives. In this text, Andrews seeks to wash those lies with biblical truth by combining biblical counseling with cognitive behavioral therapy "in an effort to better understand our human condition" and give readers tools to face these challenges.

Sehnsucht nach Stille - wie Christopher Knight 27 Jahre in der Wildnis lebte. Im Sommer 1986 begibt sich Christopher Knight auf einen Roadtrip von Massachusetts nach Maine und verschwindet in den Wäldern. 27 Jahre lang bleibt er dort, abgeschieden von der Welt, ohne menschlichen Kontakt, bis er wegen Diebstahls gefasst wird: Er hatte Essen geklaut. In einem einfachen Zelt überlebte Knight die härtesten Winter, weil er klug wie ein Eichhörnchen Vorräte gebunkert und alles darauf ausgerichtet hatte, nicht zu erfrieren. In den nahegelegenen Ferienhäusern versorgte er sich mit Lebensmitteln, Kleidung und Büchern und verstörte als unheimliches Phantom die Bewohner von North Pond. Der Journalist Michael Finkel hat das außergewöhnliche Leben des Chris Knight dokumentiert. Entstanden ist eine fesselnde Story, die den fundamentalen Fragen über ein gutes Leben nachgeht und das tief bewegende Porträt eines Mannes hinterlässt, der sich seinen Traum erfüllte: ein Leben in absoluter Stille.
