Are you sometimes stressed, anxious, or emotional?
Do you ever feel something is missing even when you think you should be happy?
Are there people with whom you don’t get on well but wish you did?
Have you ever wondered why you behave a certain way, do or don’t do certain things, or have done something you now regret?
This is not a typical self-help book because self-help books are usually read by people who think they have a problem to solve. This book is for everyone. Using straightforward, jargon-free language, it discusses many of the difficult issues of life, most of which are likely to affect us or someone we know at one time or another. It includes short discussions of stress, relationships, love affairs, work, parenting, sibling rivalry, motherhood, divorce, weddings, Christmas, teenagers, arguments, criticism, depression, communication, childhood, bullying, chronic pain, self-harm, addiction, suicide, bereavement, kindness, abuse, the battle of the sexes, and more.
People who can stay calm and content no matter what life throws at them all have similar thoughts and attributes that can be learned by anyone. The central theme of this book is self-esteem and how it is affected every day by our circumstances and the people we come across. We are usually unaware that it is our self-esteem that drives our emotions, thoughts, and actions.
The author’s clients suggested this book be written so anyone could learn how to stay calm and content no matter what life throws at them. Personal stories highlight how you can control or change how you feel about yourself and how you can positively influence your life and the lives of everyone around you.
Stay Calm and Content: No Matter What Life Throws At You is an incredible, inspiring and powerfully written book. This book is such a lovely read that should be owned by everybody; Modern life is hard and more and more people are experiencing tumultuous events and tough life challenges due to work pressure, financial pressure and even pressure to be ‘perfect’ ; this, in turn, sets people on a roller coaster of emotions and if you do not have the tools to handle these emotions it can cause you go into a downward spiral. Stay Calm and Content is a book for people who need help in handling these emotions and how they can change their life for the better with easy, practical steps.
Within the pages of Stay Calm and Content, you will be guided by the books wonderful and talented author, Cat Williams. The chapters within her book are useful and informative, as well as this the reader gets to read case studies which make this book relatable and of course makes you realize that you are not alone! I thought it was incredible that Williams included real-life case studies, with most self-help books you do not get this and personally, I do not like this. I want to read a book which has stories from real people, I want to know if the teachings of the book helped the individual so I really do adore how Williams included this!
Stay Calm and Content is the perfect self-help book, I loved how this book is not aimed at specific problems, it does cover some particular problems but mostly it suggests ways in which we can change our own lives as well as those around us and to even have a different outlook on life! It has memorable quotations laced throughout it which can easily be read throughout the day if you are having a tough moment, it is the kind of book that you can keep in your bag and if you find that you are struggling for whatever reason, you can pull it out, breathe and read a section. There was one chapter in this book on parenting and I have to say, this was my favorite section! I love being a mother, it is the best thing in the world and I am always looking for ways I can better my parenting so to have some insight from Williams on this subject!
William’s writing is profound, moving and inspirational. I admire her writing so much and admire the reasons she has written this book. It is clear to the reader very early on that Williams is passionate about her work and wants to help people. This is no surprise considering she is a relationship counselor who works with a Charity. I have to say also that it is so lovely to read a book from a fellow Military wife!
To summarize my thoughts on this inspiring, enlightening and informative book, I would say if you are looking for a self-help book that is extremely useful and will better your life and the way you view it then please, read this book. It is an incredible read that is the perfect tool for anybody and so I would implore all of you lovely readers to read it! This incredible book gets Five Stars from me!
