Speak Your Truth

Speak Your Truth

Author: Fearne Cotton Format: Hardback Release Date: 07/01/2021

THE INSPIRING SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'Fearne Cotton is a tireless seeker of the truth, and a wonderful communicator of sanity, hope, and (most refreshingly of all) reality. This is, simply put, a beautiful book.' Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love and Big Magic 'During a time where misinformation is spreading faster than ever and people are finding it hard to keep it real, Fearne shows us the power of living in our truth. She has a magical way of making us feel understood through her compelling storytelling, while showing us a path to a more authentic life.' Vex King, author of Good Vibes, Good Life 'This book is going to help a lot of people.' Philippa Perry, author of The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read 'Loved it - without judgement, but with a cheeky wink of wisdom, Fearne gives you the tools that she's learned on her own journey.' Skin, Skunk Anansie 'We need truth talkers more than we ever have right now. Wild, bold, connected truth talkers. Fearne takes our hand and shows us how to be one by treading the wild, vulnerable path first.' Sarah Wilson, author of First, We Make the Beast Beautiful Fearne Cotton's voice is familiar to millions, whether that's through television, radio or on her hugely successful Happy Place podcast. Her voice is her career, her livelihood and the way she communicates with her audience and her loved ones. So, when Fearne's doctor told her she was at risk of needing a throat operation followed by two weeks of being unable to speak, she found herself facing a period of unexpected contemplation. As she considered what silence would mean, Fearne began to think about other times her voice had gone unheard - as a young woman, as 'just the talent', as the foil to louder, more dominant figures. She found herself wondering, at what point do we internalise this message, and start silencing ourselves? When do we swallow down our authentic words to become pleasers and compromisers at the cost of our own happiness or wellbeing? Speak Your Truth dives into all the ways we learn to stay quiet for the wrong reasons, and explores how to find your voice, assert yourself and speak out with confidence. Brave, vulnerable and deeply personal, Speak Your Truth shares Fearne's compelling story and helps you to shape your own.

From the bestselling author of HAPPY and the HAPPY PLACE PODCAST THE FOLLOW UP TO THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER, HAPPY: FINDING JOY IN EVERY DAY AND LETTING GO OF PERFECT 'Calm for me is less about thought and much more about feeling. It is a stillness that allows my lungs to expand like hot air balloons. It is an acceptance of the noise around me. It is a magic alchemy that might last a second or a whole day, where I feel relaxed yet aware; still yet dynamic; open yet protected . . . ' *** In today's always-on world, for many of us it seems impossible to relax, take time out or mute the encircling 'noise'. It is easy to feel trapped in this frenzied state of mind: we are surrounded by negative stories in the press, weighed down by pressures from work, family life or school and subject to constant scrutiny under the all-seeing eye of social media. As a result, mental health illnesses are on the rise in every age group, and more of us than ever before yearn for silence, peace and calm. CALM is Fearne's mission to find the simple things that can inch us away from stress and over to the good stuff. Including expert advice, conversations with wise friends from all walks of life, easy ideas to try, activities to complete - and the little things that have made a difference to her own, sometimes-bumpy life - this book is a friendly reminder that Calm is a place that exists in us all, we just have to find our way back to it.
