The Awesome Power of Sleep How Sleep Super-Charges Your Teenage Brain

Author: Nicola Morgan Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/01/2021

The essential guide to sleep from award-winning teenage well-being expert Nicola Morgan, author of bestselling Blame My Brain, The Teenage Guide to Stress and The Teenage Guide to Friends. Late nights, addictive technology and minds racing with exam stress and friendship worries: it's no wonder the teenage stereotype is tired eyes and sleeping through the weekend. Just like adults, teenagers are sleeping less now than ever before, yet sleep is crucial to our health and well-being. Internationally renowned expert on the teenage brain, Nicola Morgan, tackles this essential subject - asking why teenagers so desperately need a good night's sleep, exploring what a lack of sleep does to their developing brains, and explaining how to have the best sleep possible. Authoritative, accessible and informed by the latest scientific evidence, Nicola Morgan writes a fascinating and helpful guide for both teenagers and adults alike.

Exam Attack

Author: Nicola Morgan Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 08/10/2020

A practical, positive, utterly sensible guide for exam students, for the best chance of success. Exams are stressful and most people don't love them! This book can't remove all your exam nerves and, anyway, a certain level of stress can help you perform well. Instead this book aims to help you avoid bad stress and have the greatest chance of doing your best when exams arrive. It will give you the tools to control your body and mind during this challenging phase. And the tools will help you at many other stressful times of life. Exam Attack covers a huge range of learning techniques. You'll find advice on food (and how to cope when you lose your appetite), sleep, panic, revision, getting help, managing screens and social media. And there's up-to-date advice on note-taking and learning. One of the core principles in this book is that our mental and physical health, or 'wellbeing', affects how we perform. It isn't a luxury or optional extra: it affects every aspect of life.

Body Brilliant A Teenage Guide to a Positive Body Image

Body Brilliant A Teenage Guide to a Positive Body Image

Author: Nicola Morgan Format: Electronic book text Release Date: 11/07/2019

Written by teenage expert, Nicola Morgan, 'Body Brilliant' will help teenagers to develop or retain a positive body image. We're all bombarded with information and images - through the media and our peers - about being too big, too small, being cool, being popular or having the 'right' kind of clothes. This book addresses the body issues that nearly everyone worries about at some point in their lives and gives practical and mindful solutions to work through worries, using real-life examples, quotes and anecdotes from young adults interviewed especially for this book. 'Body Brilliant' explores psychological pressures that make us see our bodies in certain ways, positively or negatively, as well as considering how adolescent body changes, gender identity and gender expectations, sexuality and sexual orientation affect self-image, and looks at issues such as body dysmorphia and eating disorders. 'Body Brilliant' also encourages you to think about how you view differences in others and understand that variety is a brilliant thing. And that being yourself is much better than being just like everyone else. Learn to celebrate the differences that make every body brilliant!
