              Glide is the story of what happened when serial-achiever Lisa Forrest (Olympian, TV and radio broadcaster, author, actor, wife, mother) took time out to answer a question that had been bugging her for years: Why, no matter what she achieved, was she never enough for herself? What... Lisa discovered was that she'd misunderstood the lessons of her youth - and traded 'getting on her own side' for the exact opposite. She also discovered that it's 'the exact opposite' that drives much of the illness, burn-out and mental health issues today. Combining wisdom from a broad range of sources - the women who ran Lisa's first swimming club to the latest scientifically backed research in fields such as performance coaching, positive psychology and contemplative neuroscience - Glide offers remarkably honest and calm insights into navigating the perils of modern living from a woman who has experienced it all.

              A love song to self-compassion: here's a book for anyone who needs to silence the harsh voice inside their own head.' Richard Glover, bestselling author of Flesh Wounds It's my hope that by the end of this book I will have convinced you that a combination of mindfulness, self-com...passion and compassion is all you need to get on your own side - and to help others get on theirs. And when we can all do that, we'll glide through life's challenges. Glide is the story of what happened when serial-achiever Lisa Forrest (Olympian, TV and radio broadcaster, author, actor, wife, mother) took time out to answer a question that had been weighing her down for years: Why, no matter what she achieved, was she never enough for herself? Lisa discovered that the get-tough lessons from her years in elite sport were the source of her problem - in fact, they are the source of much of the illness, burnout and mental health challenges we all face today. More surprising is the antidote: self-compassion. Could it be the super-power we've all been looking for? Drawing on the wisdom of the women who ran Lisa's first swimming club through to contemplative neuroscience, Glide offers remarkably honest and calm insights into navigating the perils of modern living from a woman who has experienced it all. 'In a cluttered, busy, stressful world Glide is a window to finding the space that exists within us - where the clutter falls away, where the negativity transforms, where the chaos is calmed.' Tracey Holmes, sports presenter, journalist, TV and radio broadcaster
