Your One Wild and Precious Life : Reimagine your mid-life self and face the future with joy Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


A unique whole-life plan for navigating these ever-changing times and living a happy, productive and successful lifeCentennials.

Millennials. Gen X'ers. Baby boomers. Traditionalists. We are in an era that loves a label at a time when how we actually live has never been more fluid. Unlike previous generations, we no longer expect to leave education forever in our early twenties; to be ready for the mortgage and 2.4 children by the time we hit thirty; to remain in one career till retirement; to give up on love or adventure or intellectual challenge as we age.

It's exciting, liberating . . . and also, unsettling. Drawing on fascinating psychological research on how we are affected by these ever-shifting goalposts The Complete Life is a radical new perspective on making the best of our lives.

Distinguished psychologist Maureen Gaffney applies a unique full life approach to navigating these complicated times.

In The Complete Life she:- explores how our past, present and future are inextricably linked and how they influence each other in surprising and complex ways;- explains what motivates us to grow and develop and be at our best at every age and stage;- suggests how we can sustain our most important relationships and also manage the key elements of our lives - learning, working, mental and physical wellbeing - in every decade. The Complete Life is full of lively examples and concrete strategies.

It is an inspirational, timely and essential manual for 21st-century living by the renowned author of the Number One bestseller, Flourishing.
