Mental Training for Fitness and Sports by Jose Silva+ +

Jose Silva’s Guide to Mental Training for Fitness and Sports by Jose Silva, Ed Bernd Jr.
Requirements: .ePUB, .PDF reader, 1.2 Mb
Overview: Research has shown conclusively that when you practice mentally – at the correct level of mind – you will gain almost as much benefit as when you practice physically. When you combine physical and mental practice, your results are far greater. Now the world’s Number One mind training program will show you how. Whether you are a pro, a weekend warrior, of a fitness fanatic, this book is for you.
You’ve seen athletes do it in all sports:
Members of the Olympic bobsled team just before their run, eyes closed, their bodies swaying back and forth as they visualize the run
Professional basketball players mimicking the free throw, picturing it mentally, before actually taking the ball and shooting it
The pro golf champion on the tee visualizing his drive.
Research has shown conclusively that when you practice mentally – at the correct level of mind – you will gain almost as much benefit as you will when you practice physically. And when you combine both physical and mental practice, your results are far greater.
Silva graduates report they have been able to:
Learn what they need to know, faster and easier.
Train their bodies to perform better by visualizing at the correct level of mind
Improve their intuition and anticipation so that they do the right thing at the right time more often, automatically
Manage pain, and recover from injuries faster
Program themselves for success

The Quest for Mental Health by Ian Dowbiggin

The Quest for Mental Health: A Tale of Science, Medicine, Scandal, Sorrow, and Mass Society by Ian Dowbiggin
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.5 Mb
Overview: This is the story of one of the most far-reaching human endeavors in history: the quest for mental well-being. From its origins in the eighteenth century to its wide scope in the early twenty-first, this search for emotional health and welfare has cost billions. In the name of mental health, millions around the world have been tranquilized, institutionalized, psycho-analyzed, sterilized, lobotomized, and even euthanized. Yet at the dawn of the new millennium, reported rates of depression and anxiety are unprecedentedly high. Drawing on years of field research, Ian Dowbiggin argues that if the quest for emotional well-being has reached a crisis point in the twenty-first century, it is because mass society is enveloped by cultures of therapism and consumerism, which increasingly advocate bureaucratic and managerial approaches to health and welfare. Over time, stake-holders such as governments, educators, drug companies, the media, the insurance industry, the courts, the helping professions, and a public whose taste for treatment seems insatiable have transformed the campaign to achieve mental health into a movement that has come to mean all things to virtually all people. As Dowbiggin shows, unless systemic changes take place, the quest for mental health is likely to make populations more miserable before they become happier.
