Insomnia usually appears in the presence of at least one other disorder. Particularly common co-occurring conditions include major depression, generalized anxiety, attention deficit/hyperactivity in children, and chronic pain. In sleep clinics, insomnia patients with co-occurring psychological disorders outnumber those with only insomnia two-to-one (National Institutes of Health), yet there are no books currently available to help those with insomnia comorbid with another mental health condition. Quiet Your Mind and Get to Sleep offers solutions to this sizeable population in a practical, step-by-step manner that simulates the experience of visiting a sleep therapist. This program in this workbook is based on a proven-effective cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) treatment program created by coauthor Colleen Carney. Readers will learn new skills for dealing with insomnia and complete simple worksheets and assignments that will help them evaluate their insomnia as well as their comorbid condition. Chapters address insomnia and depression, insomnia and anxiety (including generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and other specific types of anxiety), and insomnia and chronic pain.

When a career-ending injury left elite athlete and professional football player Lewis Howes out of work and living on his sister’s couch, he decided he needed to make a change for the better. He started by reaching out to people he admired, searching for mentors, and applying his past coaches’ advice from sports to life off the field. Lewis did more than bounce back: He built a multimillion-dollar online business and is now a sought-after business coach, speaker, and podcast host. In The School of Greatness, Howes shares the essential tips and habits he gathered in interviewing “the greats” on his wildly popular podcast of the same name. In discussion with people like Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson and Pencils of Promise CEO Adam Braun, Howes figured out that greatness is unearthed and cultivated from within. The masters of greatness are not successful because they got lucky or are innately more talented, but because they applied specific habits and tools to embrace and overcome adversity in their lives. A framework for personal development, The School of Greatness gives you the tools, knowledge, and actionable resources you need to reach your potential. Howes anchors each chapter with a specific lesson he culled from his greatness “professors” and his own experiences to teach you how to create a vision, develop hustle, and use dedication, mindfulness, joy, and love to reach goals. His lessons and practical exercises prove that anyone is capable of achieving success and that we can all strive for greatness in our everyday lives.
