Book: “365 Ways to Beat Stress: How to Relax and Find Perfect Calm” by Adam Gordon (ed), Watkins Media Ltd., 2019.

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Book available April 16, 2019

There are a few sections to this book: Mornings, Dealing with Stress and Emotions, Positive Change, Mind and Spirit, Body, The Peaceful Home, Work, People, Creativity and Play, and Evenings.

There are common-sense and yet new ways of dealing with stress. This book is full of good ideas from drawing insight from your dreams to thinking how you can give joy to one person today as you walk to singing in the showers.

I recommend this book to those who would like to give a thoughtful gift. It can be used daily as an inspiration to what to do with your life to destress. It is well thought out and worth it.

Book: “How to Stay Sane in a Crazy World” by Sophia Stuart

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

This book is an exercise of love by the author. The author had been battling cancer. She set upon doing something positive and loving for herself. She used her photographs as inspiration for beauty and reminders of what can be done to take care of oneself while one was battling a disease.

 

There are three parts of the book. They are in the format of “mornings, afternoons, and evenings.” The morning inspiration section contain short one liners indicating what you can do for yourself like “Dream about far-off lands.” The afternoon perspiration section has a bit more text about tips such as a “Secret Sisterhood.” And finally the last section on evenings exhalation deals with what you can do while battling an illness such as dealing with burnout and making your own kindness kit.

 

I believe this book would find a good place on a coffee table so that people can peruse the various sections of the book. Otherwise, it might be a thoughtful gift to give to other people who are facing illness and disease. It might help them recover because it reminds people of the good things in life.

 

I was not financially compensated for this post. I received the book from Hay House for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
