Some stuff about breathing

"id=FFF""Deep Survival",  Laurence Gonzales and "Extreme Fear", Jeff Wise are both great books about survival and survival mechanisms. They combine great research, real life examples and excellent story telling to create very readable books. Both describe FFF in some detail, however Extreme Fear is a book about nothing but FFF. A very comprehensive work and includes many every day examples alongside the more extreme ones.

The Human Illusion

"The Fifth Discipline", Peter Senge covers many issues about perception and how it affects human endeavour, success and performance. If you like this, you may also enjoy "The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook" which discusses practical applications.

Be Grateful Every Day

Martin Seligman, Et al "Positive Psychology Progress: Empirical Validation of Interventions" was research done in 2005 exploring a number of interventions and their impact on wellbeing, happiness, and depression. The intervention with by far the greatest impact was a daily practice of identifying three things you are grateful for and why. It increased happiness and wellbeing, it reduced depression and the impacts lasted for six months following the study. It's also one of the most powerful ways I know of creating a sense of progress.
