'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-compassion 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
