Young people in this country are facing a chasm of doubt and instability. Mental health problems are widespread, university fees are rising, job opportunities are drying up, and the prospect of ever owning a home is increasingly out of reach. But this generation is noticeably absent from the opinion columns, comment pieces and news reports of the mainstream media. From the creative minds behind Rife magazine comes this anthology of twenty passionate voices, all under the age of twenty-four, writing across a spectrum of topics that matter to them. It holds a mirror up to the experience of young people in the UK today, with essays on money, mental health, sex, gender, inequality, education, crime and the future. Bracing, honest and set against what can often seem an apocalyptic backdrop, these stories are nevertheless full of ideas and solidarity to draw on through these uncertain times.

Also called predepression, hurried woman syndrome affects 30 million women annually in the United States. HWS is most commonly found in mothers who live with the chronic stress of trying to fulfill many roles for many people and is characterized by a set of chronic physical, emotional, and psychological symptoms that can include fatigue, weight gain, moodiness, sleep problems, and low libido. Torn between the demands of managing children's school and activities, keeping up a home, work (paid or volunteer), social obligations, and more, hurried women feel as if they are on an endless emotional roller-coaster ride. Unfortunately, most HWS sufferers are unaware that they have a clinically identified and treatable problem. With proper guidance, most sufferers can quickly reverse the symptoms of HWS and regain their energy and love of life. Without it, they are in serious danger of developing full-blown clinical depression. Based on Dr. Brent W. Bost's experiences treating his patients, The Hurried Woman Syndrome offers the first integrated program for overcoming the symptoms that make up the syndrome. An indispensable survival guide for busy women who feel stressed, tired, and dissatisfied, it features: A mood assessment test to help determine if they have HWS, or more serious depression A complete, seven-step program for managing stress and overcoming HWS symptoms Expert guidance on how to manage weight, set priorities, get adequate exercise, create firm limits, talk with doctors about antidepressants, rekindle the romance in their relationships, and more

Many single woman–married man relationships are characterized by such recognizable, even stereotypic, interactions and run such a predictable course as to constitute a genuine syndrome. Documenting the existence of this syndrome with case histories from inside and outside clinical practice, Dr. Tuch gives serious consideration to the complex dynamics involved and offers a framework to help patients struggling with their involvement in such affairs. A broader discussion of relations between men and women evolves and addresses such issues as men's dread of women; women's unique inclinations to employ masochistic adaptations in their relations with men; married couples' varied styles of dealing with their differences; the relationship of power and control to the processes of domination, submission, and the act of surrendering; and the development of the capacity to fall and remain in love.

From over two decades of research, Dr Libby takes all the guesswork out of being a woman, providing insight into the questions that plague western women around the world, including: Why some people emotionally eat and how to end this, why our skin breaks out and why we might lose our hair, how estrogen and progesterone affect our bodies and our minds, why we believe `if I don¿t do it, it won¿t get done¿, why we store body fat in a certain place and what we can do about it, why our liver is the number one organ to look after, and why we have big conversations at night, rather than at breakfast. With interactive worksheets, real-life examples and step-by-step guides to making life-transforming changes, Women¿s Wellness Wisdom is both practical and inspiring. Illuminating how women can thrive in today¿s fast-paced modern world, and filled from front to back with Dr Libby¿s unique blend of nutrition, biochemical science and emotional care, this beautifully illustrated book is truly the definitive guide for women about looking after their bodies, minds and hearts.
