              The bestselling author of How to Escape from Prison, prisoner-turned-psychologist Paul Wood on developing the mental fitness to take on life's challenges Getting and staying mentally fit, just like getting and maintaining a high level of physical fitness, involves hard work, effo...rt, and consistency. Our level of mental fitness determines how effectively we can flourish through adversity, realise our potential, and be happier with our lives - regardless of what the universe has in store. We all know about mental stress (or we think we do). We've definitely all experienced it, and none of us like it. Yet this is not a threat to be avoided. Mental stress is perfectly analogous to physical stress: it is the mind's way of telling us that what we are attempting to perform is challenging our resource. This is a catalyst for growth, and a sign we are pursuing our potential. When we experience stress, we have a choice: we can heed that signal and give up - after all, we're meant to stay in our psychic comfort zone all the time, right? - or we can recognise the discomfort we are feeling is simply nature's way of enabling us to rise to the occasion. In Mental Fitness you will learn how to: Increase your mental fitness, just as you would increase your physical fitness Get closer to your potential by working proactively to maintain your mental fitness Experience the right level of stress (this is what makes us get fitter) Cope effectively for longer before you get fatigued or exhausted (it doesn't mean you don't feel the struggle) Pay attention to the indicators of fatigue to avoid burnout and unnecessary misery

              A book on how to break free from prison A powerful lesson in personal change As an 18-year-old, Dr Paul Wood was completely off the rails. He wasn't coping with the impending death of his mother, he was dependent on drugs, and was an unemployed high-school dropout committing crim...es to feed his habit. Two days after his mother died he lost control when his then drug dealer attempted to assault him. He then spent 11 years in some of New Zealand's toughest prisons. But after a series of remarkable events, including a enlightening encounter with a criminal safe-cracker, Paul became the first person in New Zealand to progress through undergraduate studies to attain a bachelor's and master's degree in prison, and was the first person to begin a doctorate while still incarcerated. In this awe-inspiring book, Dr Paul Wood shares his life of crime, his time behind bars and his pathway to freedom. How to Escape from Prison is about survival, self-control, education, and using adversity to your advantage. It is a book about how to identify your own personal prison, and the five steps to freedom Paul has developed for his programme called What's Your Prison? Through his own experience behind bars, Paul became aware of the fundamental issues people face when trying to create change. He says that 85% of the decisionswe make every day are made while on auto-pilot. You can either arrive at yourdeath-bed on autopilot or you can make conscious changes to your life. His academic study in the fields of human behaviour, development and industrial and organisational psychology led him to establish a way of thinking about who we are as individuals and our capacity to overcome our greatest challenges. Part memoir, part guide on how to escape from prison, this is a incredible, gripping read about a man who reached the depths of overwhelming despair, to the heights of true freedom.
