Abstract or Description

We all love comfort - but, psychologically, it can be a real trap, holding you back and keeping you stuck in dead-end situations. Using the principles of Rational Emotive Therapy, this book helps people deal with discomfort in life, with advice on how to get things done, achieve goals and overcome inertia. The book covers the problems of those who take a masochistic approach to life's frustrations, and those who use "quick fixes" such as alcohol and drugs. It discusses how to overcome emotional problems which can result when things don't go to plan, such as anger, depression and self-pity. Topics include: The many faces of the comfort trap dealing with urges and feelings of deprivation tolerating unpleasant feelings dealing with impatience and boredom overcoming procrastination developing persistence dealing with the discomfort of change
