The Rules of Love A Personal Code for Happier, More Fulfilling Relationships

The Rules of Love A Personal Code for Happier, More Fulfilling Relationships

Author: Richard Templar Format: Paperback Release Date: 19/11/2015

Love matters. Whether it’s the romantic kind or the emotional bond between you and family or friends. Indeed latest research suggests that those who love and are loved are significantly more likely to be alive in 10 years time than those without love in their lives. Love makes us happy, and the happier we are, the longer it seems we tend to live.But it isn’t always easy to love and be loved. Love is also complicated. Relationships are invariably complex and they need to be attended to, nurtured, worked at, and invested in. It’s all too easy to neglect relationships – often without realising it – and this benign neglect leaves you one day wondering why this special relationship has crumbled, unravelled, waned or lost its sparkle. Forming good relationships isn’t easy either. Same sex relationships can be tricky enough (mothers and daughters, brothers and brothers) but when it’s the opposite sex – especially boyfriend/girlfriend) you have the added complication that the other person is wired completely differently and may see things in completely different ways.

How to Lose Weight Without Being Miserable

Author: Richard Templar Format: Paperback Release Date: 28/04/2018

According to a recent Gallup poll an amazing 13 million people are on a diet at any one time, and the dieting industry is worth more than GBP2billion. But many of these dieters fail to keep off the weight they've lost and a majority just give up. What most of them need to grasp is that the key to successful dieting is actually in your head, not in your stomach and that fad, crash diets rarely have the long-term effects they're after. This book is not a diet, it's not a crazy calorie-counting and food-weighing regime, it's just a set of simple principles that you can apply to your life to help you lose a few pounds and, perhaps most importantly, keep them off for good. With his inimitable blend of originality, wisdom, common sense and straight talking, Richard Templar takes you through 100 clever, cunningly simple and pain-free ways to lose a little weight and consume less energy than you expend. It's easy to follow, requires no special equipment or adherence to complex rules, and helps you to find ways to consume fewer calories without asking you to suffer miserably whilst those around merrily eat all the things you're missing. All you really need is the resolve and determination; this book will help you with the strategies.
