About the Author

As a yoga teacher, Amber Polo loves to teach people to relax; As a librarian, she loves interesting research projects; As a writer, she loves to write; As a traveler, she packs more guidebooks than underwear – and still gets lost "Relaxing the Writer: Guidebook to the Writer’s High" brings together all her loves. Amber’s fiction has been called quirky and profound. She has published short stories, two novels, and won the Story Circle Network ’08 LifeWriting Competition. Her yoga teacher training is in Integral Yoga, the program Dean Ornish used to develop his Program for Reversing Heart Disease and a method proven to teach recognition of tension and the techniques to release it. Her relaxation audios "Relaxation; One Breath at a Time," "Relaxing the Writer Relaxation", & "Relaxing the Writers Hand Meditation" have won praise as accessible, not too woo-woo, relaxation instruction.

More About the Author

A love of books drew Amber Polo into a career as a librarian. A greater love turned her into a writer. Best known for her The Shapeshifters' Library series, an urban fantasy filled with books, librarians and dogs, and a library everyone will love.

Sample her writing and see why Midwest Book Review called her work "quirky" and "profound" (is that profoundly quirky or quirkily profound?)After living in seven states, she happily calls a small town in Arizona home.

Yoga teacher and writer, Amber Polo, provides a variety of useful tips for writers to remain healthy. This book is a godsend for writers, who spend their days indoors seated at a computer. Polo says, "relaxation can be learned" and she includes a range of relaxation methods that are easy to understand and implement. By becoming more relaxed, writers can also increase their connection to their creative source and enhance productivity. Relaxing the Writer is an excellent resource for writers and other professionals, whose jobs require long hours of sitting at a computer.

I enjoyed this book very much and recommend it to all writers and anyone who spends hours sitting in front of a computer. There are exercises you can do at your desk, breathing exercises, Yoga, aromatherapy, ideas for mental stress and physical tension, and my favorite, section IV--Exploring Other Attractions, which includes three categories: active, meditative and sensual artistic. Loved it!

Writing can be tough work both mentally and physically. As someone who spends 8 to 10 hours a day writing or doing other work at my computer, I was happy to learn some new techniques for easing stress on mind and body. The hand stretches are especially helpful. Recommended for writers or anyone else who spends long hours at the computer.

"Relaxing The Writer" is one of the best books out there today for writers (and others) who need specific and beneficial guidelines to relaxing not only your hands but body and mind as well. Ms. Polo's guidelines are precise and easily followed, and can be done any time, any where. Laced with a bit of humor, too, this is a "Must Have", and I'd recommend it to anyone!

Format: Paperback
Stretching, self-massage, hydration, and meditation are just some of the easy-to-perform, rejuvenating methods suggested to the reader in this helpful book. Author Amber Polo explains and guides readers to a holistic, gentle approach to physical and spiritual refreshment after they've spent long sessions at the keyboard.

Coax yourself away from the writing station and spend some quality time getting your body and mind back in sync. "Relaxing the Writer" will show you how.

Format: Paperback
If you are spending more time with your computer than you should, reading Amber Polo's "Relalxing the Writer, Guidebook to the Writer's High" is a must. As you already know but often forget, we need to do desk stretches, hand stretches, rolling & passive stretches, and even some good breathing exercises and this book will walk you through all these and many other good suggestion as to how to stay healthy while doing what you must do on your computer. I keep this book on my desk as a reminder to take some time to treat myself and my body to good healthy (and simple) exercises.
