Bounce- Overcoming Adversity, Building Resilience and Finding Joy


ounce your way to happiness and joy

From the best-selling author of Mid-Life Career RescueStress Less and How to Find Your Passion and Purpose: a powerful, inspiring, and practical book about boosting resilience, overcoming obstacles and moving forward after life’s inevitable setbacks.

Are you feeling flat? Despondent? Stressed or lacking energy? If so, you’ve come to the right place. It’s time to turn up the volume and get your vitality back.

Bounce offers short, sound-bites of stand-alone readings designed to help you cultivate resilience and awareness amid the challenges of daily living.

Gently, conversationally, and with humor, Bounce: Overcoming Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy offers strategies for seeing and thinking differently. For many people, the approach is nothing less than transformational.

More than a collection of thoughts for the day, Bounce: Overcoming Adversity, Building Resilience and Finding Joy offers a progressive program of holistic–mental, emotional, physical and spiritual–study, guiding you through essential concepts, themes, and practices on the path to well-being, joy, and happiness.

The teachings are gently humorous, sometimes challenging, occasionally provocative, but always compassionate and kind, and, seemingly infinitely wise.

Bestselling author, award-winning artist, holistic psychologist creativity expert Cassandra Gaisford (BCA, Dip Psych) shares strategies that have worked for her personally through many of her own life challenges, and for her clients in her professional work as a holistic psychologist and self-empowerment coach.

Bounce: Overcoming Adversity, Building Resilience and Finding Joy features the most essential and stirring passages from Gaisford’s previous books, exploring topics such as meditation, mindfulness, positive health behaviors, and working with fear, depression, anxiety, and other painful emotions.

Bounce expands upon her previous books in that it encourages a more playful approach to the seriousness of life and the ever-present stressors we all face.

Through the course of this book, you will learn practical, creative and simple methods for heightening awareness and overcoming habitual patterns that block happiness and joy and hold you back.

Amongst the many benefits you’ll reap after reading this book, you’ll learn:

  • How to find strength in the face of adversity
  • How to build your courage muscles easily
  • How to fire up your determination to live a life of passion, love, and joy
  • How to gain the happiness advantage and master the art of absolute success

Gaisford’s hope is that next time you are faced with a setback or face adversity one simple word will come to mind: ‘Bounce.’ And then, having been reminded that bouncing back from setbacks in a lively manner is the test of your power, that you will then go quickly into resilience mode and apply the strategies you have learned in this book.

If when next faced with a challenge your default thoughts are ‘bounce’, and ‘how can I bounce?’ then this book is a success.

Are you ready to bounce?
