The Skills You Need Guide to Life:
Looking After Yourself
Live a happier, healthier and more productive life.
One of the most important skills in life is taking care of yourself in body and mind. It is the foundation for all other skills and areas of personal development. If you do not take care of yourself, you will find it much harder to harness the power of your mind to develop, learn and achieve more in life.
However, advice about how to look after yourself physically and mentally is often hard to understand and may even be contradictory. This eBook, now in its second edition, with new and revised content, is designed to make life both easier and better. It takes a common-sense approach, using the scientific evidence to help you understand the options and learn to make the right decisions for you.
Readers should find that it helps them to develop habits that will lead to a healthy mind and body, providing an essential foundation for life.

The Skills You Need Guide to Life:
Living Well, Living Ethically
How to Live Your Best Life, Every Day.
Looking after your physical and mental health is important. It is, however, not enough. Maslow’s famous hierarchy of needs suggests that most of us need more than that. We need to know that we are living our ‘best life’: that we are doing all we can to lead a ‘good life’ that we will not regret later on.
This eBook helps you to live that life. It explains about the concepts of living well and ‘goodness’, together with how to develop your own ‘moral compass’. It uses the framework of Aristotle’s virtues to outline a ‘good life’. By considering each of the virtues in turn, it allows you to work on your weaknesses and understand where you need to improve—but also to celebrate your strengths. It also discusses some ways to put these ideas into practice, including through making your lifestyle more sustainable.
This is not a ‘to do’ list, nor an instruction manual. It is designed to help you think about the life you want to live—and how you can start to do that.

Our eBooks - No Nonsense Sales Policy
Forget everything you know (or have found out) about internet marketing tactics. We’re determined to be up front and honest with you.
You won’t find the usual pages of ‘hard-sell’ nonsense here. Our four selling principles are simple:
Most of the information in our eBooks is freely available on the website.
We believe the information we publish should be freely available to everybody, and it is – just browse our pages. We do, however, understand that, for convenience, it may be easier to get an eBook (like it may be more convenient to eat in a restaurant than cook your own meal). The convenience of an eBook means that you can print it, search it, read it on your kindle, tablet, laptop, smart-phone or other gadget while sitting on the beach or at the top of a mountain far away from any Wi-Fi, 4G or other networks.
The content in our eBooks is a little different from the website content. Our eBooks read more like a book (than a series of webpages) and there are no advertisements; they also contain some extra information.
Our eBooks have been professionally designed and published and all have ISBN numbers.
Our prices are always a great deal.
There is no special deal ending at midnight tonight, no special incentives because you’re the 10,000th person to read this and absolutely no chance of winning an iPad. Regardless of whether you decide to buy an eBook or not, we’re not going to send you emails every day reminding you to join our ‘club’ or buy more stuff. You can of course subscribe to our newsletter if you choose to do so.
There are no hidden extras and all taxes are included in your purchase.
We’re not in this to make lots of money.
We’re not going to be calling the Mercedes Benz dealer or booking a six week holiday to the Seychelles because you bought one of our eBooks. All profits go back into SkillsYouNeed enabling us to create more quality content that you, and everybody else, will have free access to. Simple!
There is no ‘no quibble money back guarantee’ and you won’t need to remember to cancel anything after 30 days.
If you decide to buy one of our eBooks then you have done so because you have found our online content useful and would like to have a more convenient version of it. If you haven’t found our content useful and can see no advantage of buying an eBook then don’t!
