Australia's most trusted home cook is celebrating a fresher approach to eating. These days we're bombarded with so many messages about what to eat more of and what to eat less of and what to give up altogether, it can all get a little confusing and, let's face it, overwhelming. When there are so many passing fads and extreme diets out there, it's a relief to turn to a voice of reason, Australia's bestselling and most trusted cook, Donna Hay, for a realistic, sustainable and more balanced approach to fresher, healthier eating. Donna says: 'If there's one thing I've learned about myself, it's that I'm happiest when life is balanced. It rings true in all areas- work and play, friends and family, and, for me especially, food. Diets have never been my thing, I don't like the idea of anyone being on one! But I do love the way food can make me feel, uplifting me with energy, nourishing me with cosy goodness, or treating me with a little sweetness. LIFE IN BALANCE is about embracing food and all its benefits. Each chapter, from breakfast to baking, has simple recipes enriched with nature's superfoods - think leafy greens, bright fresh berries, creamy nuts and nourishing grains. Plus, I've profiled all my power pantry staples for you, like chia seeds, coconut sugar and raw cacao. Let this book help you find your own perfect balance, while enjoying every bite.' In a gorgeous new user-friendly square paperback format, featuring tactile paper stock and stunning photography, Donna packs in a wealth of ideas and information that you can trust, and flavours and tastes that will inspire you. From new ideas for power dinners to tempting grills, from super-charged breakfasts to low-carb options, LIFE IN BALANCE is full of super-satisfying recipes - nourishing, virtuous and delicious. And because we all need the occasional treat, there's also a few yummy better-for-you sweets. The only kind of diet that works, after all, is the balanced diet - the one you can sustain long term. And when your life is in balance, you feel great and it shows - from the inside out.

Magazine articles, talk shows, and commercials advise us that our happiness and well-being rest on striking a balance between work and family. It goes unsaid, however, that the advice is based on an outmoded and unrealistic ideal. This provocative volume challenges the notion often offered in support of neo-liberal agendas that paid work (employment) and unpaid work (caregiving and housework) are separate and competing spheres, rather than overlapping aspects of a single existence. Alternative approaches to integrating work and family must be taken into account if we hope to build truly equitable family and childcare policies.

The Key to Living in Balance

One of the greatest spiritual teachers of the twentieth century will help you learn how to live in the present moment in Awareness: The Key to Living in Balance. Underlying all meditation techniques, including martial arts—and in fact underlying all great athletic performances—is a quality of being awake and present to the moment, a quality that Osho calls awareness. Once we can identify and understand what this quality of awareness is, we have the key to self-mastery in virtually every area of our lives. According to great masters like Lao Tzu or Buddha, most of us move through our lives like sleepwalkers. Never really present in what we are doing, never fully alert to our environment, and not even aware of what motivates us to do and say the things we do. At the same time, all of us have experienced moments of awareness—or awakening, to use another—in extraordinary circumstances. On the road, in a sudden and unexpected accident, time seems to stop and one is suddenly aware of every movement, every sound, every thought. Or in moments that touch us deeply—welcoming a new baby into the world for the first time, or being with someone at the moment of death. Awareness, says Osho, is the key to being self-directed, centered, and free in every aspect of our lives. In this book, Osho teaches how to live life more attentively, mindfully, and meditatively, with love, caring and consciousness. Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people—along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha—who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

Are you working more but enjoying it less? Are you searching for greater fulfillment, significance, and meaning? Are you simply looking for a better sense of balance in your life? If you have identified with any of these statements you are not alone. Many of us experience an absence of personal significance in our lives; we have a sense that something is "horribly out of whack." But, there is hope. We can have successful, rewarding careers and still experience richly textured, fulfilled personal lives. This work examines the confusion and myth of life balance, offers a new paradigm of balance, and illuminates a path for busy professionals and managers to follow to achieve real balance and deeper meaning in their lives. Drawing from business theory, existing and original research, and the authors' own consulting experiences, A Life in Balance is an engaging, thoughtful, and readable guide that will help readers unfold and create their own balance experience.

The collection includes poems such as a tribute to Franklin Delano Roosevelt which was placed in the archives of the United Nations as well as in the FDR Presidential Library at Hyde Park. This poem started a correspondence between Mr. Goldstein and Eleanor Roosevelt which spanned more than a decade.

As our world grows increasingly more complex and stressful, developing our capacity for dynamic balance in our lives, work, and relationships becomes vital. Based on the ancient wisdom traditions and the insights of indigenous cultures throughout our world, Living in Balance reveals that in each moment, we have the capacity to be mindful of whether our thoughts and actions are moving toward harmony and balance, or away from it. Through this awareness we can make a conscious choice to continue on the path we are on, or to change our attitude and direction. By encouraging experimentation with the myriad of principles and practices offered, the authors empower the reader to determine which of those are most resonant and meaningful, and can be woven into the fabric of daily life.Living in Balance is not merely a strongly hyped, motivational book for people seeking to achieve greater success, power, health, or better self­ image in their lives. Instead it offers a rare synthesis of ancient wisdom traditions with cutting ­edge research on peak human performance that points toward mindfulness as being truly the key to living in balance.Out of print since 2004, this revised and expanded edition features 4 new chapters. Foreword by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
