Build your mental fitness with THE MIND WORKOUT by Mark Freeman, published today!

It's well known that if you want to keep your body fit, you must do some regular exercise. But when it comes to our mental health, few of us take the time to maintain and improve it. Luckily today Piatkus publish THE MIND WORKOUT by Mark Freeman, a ground-breaking new method for improving your mental health and fitness in just Twenty Steps.

Developed as a result of Mark Freeman's own recovery from mental illness, THE MIND WORKOUT: TWENTY STEPS TO IMPROVE YOUR MENTAL HEALTH AND TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE combines mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). It outlines twenty easy-to-follow steps you can take to free yourself from the ways of thinking and behaving that cause mental health challenges in your life - from cutting out the compulsions that cause uncertainty, anxiety and distress to relieving stress and distraction.

THE MIND WORKOUT is the key to making the switch from a frenetic, anxiety-driven life to one that's based on your core values. It will leave you feeling mentally stronger, fitter and better equipped to navigate the complexities of everyday life.

THE MIND WORKOUT is also published in audiobook.

US rights to the book recently sold at auction to Carole Desanti at Penguin, who will publish in a new edition in 2018. Other rights are sold in German, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic and Serbian.
