Top Customer Reviews
Each chapter is about making one significant change in your life, which the author recommends you do over a period of 30 days. (There are 12 chapters total, so theoretically you could go through the whole book in a year.) For example, you will decide on your "absolute yeses" and "absolute nos," you will practice eliminating clutter, you will do self esteem exercises, etc. I only bought the book three weeks ago, but have been making some of the changes on my own timetable. For example, a list of absolute yeses and nos has been very helpful in stress management!
I feel like some of her suggestions are unrealistic for some people. However, I do recommend this book to anyone who has a stressful job (or stressful life in general), because I think there is something in it for everyone.
What did she not include IMO? I think you have to address some heavier stuff: self-care is more than just being nicer (easier) to yourself (hiring a maid, learning to say "No" to jerks, reducing your to-do list or telling your mate you'd feel sexier if he did more housework). Good luck on that one.
What about living right? Living a life of integrity produces great benefits and deep self-esteem. Learning mastery, particularly self-mastery by actually working at something over time, brings an unshakable confidence that can't be matched by 'positive thinking' or repeating affirmations in the mirror. Just a thought.
Having said that, the CD is worth the money.
