Summary

Are you struggling to motivate yourself to start the day, to work on a project, or maintain a healthy habit? Do you think that happiness is hard earned and reserved only for the "chosen ones"? 
This book will show you that happiness is close by and available to everyone. It will show you how to not take life too seriously and still be excellent in all you want or have to do. 
Read the book and learn how to motivate yourself by practicing self-gamification — a unique self-help approach to implementing game design elements into your life. 
Master three skill sets to be successful in your self-motivational game design, your projects, and your life: 
1. See yourself, the world around you, and your thought processes non-judgmentally, as an anthropologist would do. 
2. Identify your dreams and goals, and take action, one small and effortless step at a time, the kaizen way. 
3. Apply gamification, that is see and treat whatever you are up to as a game: design, play, and improve your (life) games, and learn to appreciate every step on the way by giving yourself points, badges, stars, and other small symbolic rewards. 
Answering the questions and completing the various exercises in the book will allow you to practice the three skill sets of self-gamification as you go along. 
Apply anthropology, kaizen, and gamification together to practice self-gamification, a unique approach that will help you turn happiness into a lifestyle.

    About 30 percent of hospice patients report a “visitation” by someone who is not there, a phenomenon known in end-of-life care as a deathbed vision. These visions can be of dead friends or family members and occur on average three days before death. Strikingly, individuals from wildly diverse geographic regions and religions—from New York to Japan to Moldova to Papua New Guinea—report similar visions. Appearances of our dead during serious illness, crises, or bereavement are as old as the historical record. But in recent years, we have tended to explain them in either the fantastical terms of the supernatural or the reductive terms of neuroscience.This book is about how, when, and why our dead visit us. Allan Kellehear—a medical sociologist and expert on death, dying, and palliative care—has gathered data and conducted studies on these experiences across cultures. He also draws on the long-neglected work of early anthropologists who developed cultural explanations about why the dead visit. Deathbed visions conform to the rituals that underpin basic social relations and expectations—customs of greeting, support, exchange, gift-giving, and vigils—because the dead must communicate with us in a social language that we recognize. Kellehear emphasizes the personal consequences for those who encounter these visions, revealing their significance for how the dying person makes meaning of their experiences. Providing vital understanding of a widespread yet mysterious phenomenon, Visitors at the End of Life offers insights for palliative care professionals, researchers, and the bereaved.

    Discover Mayo Clinic’s first-ever weight-loss diet, and the last diet you’ll ever need! 
    Bogus “Mayo Clinic diets”—based on everything from cabbage soup to grapefruit to bacon—have been circulating for decades. These diets have no connection to Mayo Clinic, but their popularity told us that people are hungry for a diet based on Mayo’s research and clinical experience. So, here it is— for real—The Mayo Clinic Diet. 
    In our work with literally thousands of patients every week over many years, we’ve identified the leading habits of people who maintain a healthy weight, and the habits of those who don’t. 
    We’ve boiled this research down to five simple habits to help you take off the extra weight—and five habits to break so that you can keep it from coming back. 
    Plus, we’ve made it easy. You don’t have to sit down and read The Mayo Clinic Diet cover to cover. Instead, use this step-by-step program to lose weight the same way you gained it—one day at a time. Because what works is keeping it simple! 
    •	In Part 1—“Lose It!” is a two-week quick start for losing 6 to 10 pounds in a safe and healthy way. That’s real results, real fast!•	In Part 2—“Live It!” helps you continue losing 1 to 2 pounds a week until you reach your goal. Then, learn to maintain your healthy weight for life.•	In Part 3—“All the Extra Stuff!” contains meal planners, recipes, tips on overcoming challenges and much more to help you along the way. 
    The Mayo Clinic Diet puts you in charge of reshaping your body and your lifestyle by adopting healthy habits and breaking unhealthy ones. This book offers a plan for a sustainable lifestyle, not just a diet. Discover better health through better weight management by following The Mayo Clinic Diet.
