New Year, Same You

What is it about the term ‘wellness’ that sets your teeth on edge? Do you really need someone to come in and help you declutter? Can you truly practice mindful meditation on the train to work every morning? If the answer to all these questions is a resounding ‘no’, then take heart, you’re not alone.

What is life without struggle? Everyone knows it’s impossible to float through life on a fluffy pillow of happiness; it just isn’t like that. As Alan Coren once said, ‘To have a grievance is to have a purpose in life.’ Hear hear! This book is for those who look at life from a different angle, not wearing rose-tinted glasses with their glass half full, but for life’s realists: the folk who believe one should never go to bed angry … much better to stay awake and plot your revenge.

In New Year, Same You you’ll find lots of laugh-out-loud humour to brighten your day (or not). Filled with words from the wise, this is the perfect book for grumps everywhere, after all, why make one person unhappy when, with a little more thought and effort, you could spread misery to the entire family?

    Это вредные советы для всех, кто устал от призывов стать лучше: медитировать по дороге на работу, заниматься йогой, правильно питаться.
    Забавно, но через пару глав становится скучно.

    Don’t think of yourself as being fat: think of yourself as being hard to kidnap.

    A couple were talking one evening. ‘Darling,’ said the husband, ‘I’m so sorry about my bad moods. I shouldn’t take out my anger and frustration on you. I don’t know how you manage to stay so calm around me.’

    ‘I always go and clean the toilet when that happens,’ she replied.

    ‘And that helps?’

    ‘Yes, because I use your toothbrush.’
