Shopping addiction is a raging phenomenon among developed countries and has been studied over and over. Sociologists say it´s a female drive in an attempt to explain the differences in shopping behavior between men and women. It was said that the same obsession of men over sports can be linked to the way women go crazy at Black Friday sales or at mall openings. In the evolution of man, the male species are known to be hunters while women have always been the gatherers, or the ones who are in charge of finding things for their offspring. It is quite a reductionist perspective and is still widely debated, but one thing´s for sure: shopping will keep women enchanted for years to come. This behavior is not exactly exclusive to women, though, because when you consider the purchases of gadgets, large-screen TVs, and high-end cars, the tendency of men to make expensive purchases is surely noticeable. However, this is limited to a targeted section of the market. Women, on the other hand, will shop whenever, wherever, and whatever! This is because men consider shopping merely a purchase of specific merchandise while for women, it´s a whole different world altogether. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Millian Quinteros.

Everyone wants to live a life full of meaning, purpose, and success. Yet, you clutter your mind with limiting thoughts of can´t do this, can´t do that, it´s too high, too far, too great to achieve. Divided into two sections, "Subliminal Affirmations" and "Laws of Attraction Guide"; this audiobook will show that your subconscious is the most powerful tool to help alter your life in a positive manner. Negative thoughts are like weeds that grow all the time without any nurturing, since it´s human nature to think of negative consequences. On the other hand, positive thoughts about health, love, wealth, success are hard to come by, and like everything worth fighting for in this life, they require a lot of nurture and care. The audiobook plans to give you exactly what you need: the means to stay positive through constant affirmations designed to help improve oneself, change bad behaviour, or channel the universe to attract good things in your life. Call it meditation or even self-hypnosis, but the principles stated in the audiobook actually work. It is proven that repetitive constructive affirmations attract positive energies in your life, and that desire is the first step towards achievement. Packed with subliminal affirmations, the audiobook shows that in order to attract opportunities that will improve your health, love life, or even wealth, all you need are few minutes a day to shift your mind through positive affirmations. You can choose to repeat them loud and proud, or they can be repeated in your mind during idle times such as while commuting or even while taking a shower. Think positive, be confident and change your life now by taking action and downloading this audiobook. Don´t be a pessimist and navigate away. You can´t achieve any success if your mindset is constantly plagued by negativity. Download this audiobook and improve your life! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan Smith.

Addictions are things you need to deal with right away, or else you´ll end up being eaten by your bad habits; and when you want to get out of their strong hold, you can no longer do anything because it is already too late. For you to effectively stop your addictions, the most important thing you have to do before anything else is to learn what addiction really is. By doing this, it´ll be easier for you to determine if what you are experiencing right now is truly an addiction or just a simple inclination to do things. By definition, addiction is a kind of condition that takes place when a person ingests a certain substance (e.g. cocaine, alcohol, nicotine) or engages in a particular activity (e.g. shopping, gambling, sex) that can give pleasure; but the continued use or act of which can become compulsive and interfere with one´s ordinary responsibilities in life, such as health, work, or relationships. Users are usually not aware that their behavior is out of control and is starting to cause problems for themselves and the people around them. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alicia Rose.

The holiday season often brings unwelcome guests - stress and depression. And it´s no wonder. The holidays present a dizzying array of demands - parties, shopping, baking, cleaning, and entertaining, to name just a few. Feeling down during the holidays can be tough, especially since you seem so out of step with the world. Everyone else seems to be beaming, rosy cheeked, bursting with holiday spirit. You´re feeling wretched and exhausted. Holidays are supposed to be a time of joy and celebration, but for many people, they are anything but. Depression may occur at any time of the year, but the stress and anxiety of the holiday season, especially during the months of November and December (and, to a lesser extent, just before Valentine´s Day), may cause even those who are usually content to experience loneliness and a lack of fulfillment. According to one 2015 American study of patients treated by emergency psychiatric services during the Christmas season, the most common stressors were feelings of loneliness and being without a family. 1.
