Summary

“Straightforward and empathetic . . . Bell details what to expect in both physical and spiritual terms . . . as well as ways to find closure and cope with loss” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). 
 
As death approaches, both patient and family must cope with grief, pain, and seemingly unanswerable questions. A hospice nurse for more than a decade, Karen Whitley Bell has seen and learned much about these challenges and concerns. In Living at the End of Life, she reminds us that this difficult time also offers an opportunity to explore and rediscover the fuller, richer meaning of life. 
 
Bell has created a comprehensive, insightful guide to every aspect of hospice care and the final stages of life. She discusses the physical, emotional, and spiritual journey a dying person goes through; care-giving during this difficult period; closure, and loss and the lessons it teaches us. Through her warm yet knowledgeable voice, readers get firsthand accounts of experiences in hospice care, making Living at the End of Life accessible, reassuring, and indispensable.

    Cognitive overload is a byproduct of our ever-expanding information age. There’s only so much information the human brain can process in a day. Inability to focus, scattered thoughts, creative blocks, irritability and mental fatigue are common signs that you’ve reached your limit and it’s time to hit the refresh button. Not metaphorically, but literally. New research reveals that daydreaming refreshes tired neural networks, offering many rewards, such as:
    
    Creative incubation
    Reinventing self
    Memory consolidation
    Goal driven thought
    Future planning
    Memory retrieval 
    Contemplation and reflection
    
     
    This recording contains Alpha and Theta binaural beats to sooth your nerves, and set the stage for the ultimate daydream-meditation session.  For maximum brain entrainment benefits, listen with headphones. Completely free of spoken words or subliminal messages, Unplug includes two 30-minute trance-inducing tracks. The dreamy music is a gorgeous blend of lush harmonies combined with alpha and theta binaural beats to encourage deep relaxation and increase vivid imagery. As you listen, your mind will begin to float and drift. Pestering concerns are washed away. Fears vanish, while flashes of insight and imagery sparkle before your mind’s eye. At the end of 30 minutes, you’ll return feeling refreshed, revitalized and perhaps even your next big idea.

    Thousands Of Thoughts Run Through Our Minds Every Day, Forming An Inner Story Or Soundtrack That Controls Our Lives.
    Our internal voice can be critical, sabotaging our attempts to achieve the things we want. By tuning into and becoming more aware of the stories we are telling ourselves, we can free ourselves from the thoughts and beliefs that are holding us back.
    Alongside concepts, ideas and new perspectives, this book contains an eight-week practical programme for mental and emotional fitness. Through journalling, meditation and self enquiry we can begin to train our thoughts and mind to support us in the pursuit of our dreams, opening up to a fresh new outlook and appreciation for life as it is rather than life as we feel it should be.
