Getting My Bounce Back

How I Got Fit, Healthier, and Happier (And You Can, Too)

By Carolee Belkin Walker, Carolee Walker

#1 Amazon New Release ─ Female, fit and fifty

Exercise is not optional: You don’t have to run a marathon to be fit and healthy or suffer through a triathlon that includes a half-mile swim in the ocean. But you do need an exercise habit. Especially as we age, exercise is not optional. Yet unless we had been athletes as kids or young adults, and few of us were, we do not know how to find our edge. Learning how to carve out time to meet our fitness needs or to push ourselves physically and mentally is one of the greatest challenges to aging well.

Finding the inspiration to exercise: Inspired by her highly popular blog “Be the Dog”, Carolee Belkin Walker's Getting My Bounce Back is a relatable story of what it’s like to be a successful professional woman encountering all things fitness for the first time. Even if readers have never put on a pair of running shoes or tried again and again to get a fitness habit, they’ll relate to the highs and lows of Walker’s journey to the back of the pack and ultimately stumbling on a path to resilience and well-being.

Happier more confident woman: You could fit two of Walker inside what her body looked like in February 2014. But it is the powerful sense of confidence and resilience that’s had the greatest impact on Walker and inspires others. This book is about Walker digging in, discovering who she is, and seeing how far she can push herself to be strong, fit, healthy, and most important, resilient. Her writing is full of humorous situations as she decides to be an active participant in life and not take the setbacks, or herself, too seriously.

Benefits of reading Getting My Bounce Back:

  • Learn how to make time for exercise
  • Get inspired to get fit
  • Learn how you can be more confident and happier

Postcards to the Universe

By

Have you ever wanted a way to bend the ear of the Universe – that is, the loving energy behind all creation? Yes, that Universe, the one that renders absolute and perfect manifestation. Know that the Universe hears what is in your heart. It hears exactly what you want for your greatest life. In Postcards to the Universe: A Global Movement for Manifestation, artist-photographer Melisa Caprio offers a way to combine art, love and manifestation that will lead you to everything your heart desires. It is a self-help personal development/spirituality book with a strong visual component. Postcards to the Universe is a visual jewel. Lush with imaginative images and poignant with heartfelt words, this beautiful book is already igniting a creative fire in manifesters everywhere. This is creative visualization with the power of intention times three. In Postcards to the Universe readers envision an inspired and fulfilled life. Through photography, art collages and written messages, Postcards to the Universe beckons the Universe to listen to our deepest desires. It is collaboration between Caprio and the beautiful souls who contributed to this project through her popular blog, postcardstotheuniverse.com, weekly internet radio show at 12radio.com and interactive webinars. We all wish. We are already good at wishing before we blow out the candles on our first birthday cake. We are wishing when we pull on a wishbone. We are wishing when we throw coins in a fountain. But then the wish is gone, rarely thought of again, if ever. And we go back to our daily lives – stress, strain and struggle. We nestle back into our comfort zones, which may not really all that comfortable. Too often we don’t stop to even ask the question that leads to our heart’s desire: But if you had the Universe’s ear, where you could harness your own power, reach your full potential and tap into your deepest creativity, what then? Wouldn’t you ask? People have found it works “because you are literally telling the Universe that you are serious this time,” Caprio says. “You’re ready, really ready, to begin the process of receiving your deepest desires” Postcards to the Universe is your conduit to success. Postcards to the Universe, A Global Movement for Manifestation is not just a beautiful fine art book but an ongoing project and movement. Postcards to the Universe empowers people to get clear and creative about living an inspired life. Though art and photography, we get to see peoples' desires manifest. Caprio photographs each postcard as she receives it. She intuits by each person’s specific manifestation how she is going to photograph their postcard. Caprio is inspired by helping people get creative and collaborate with her to push this movement forward. She asks the Universe to send her postcards. Each postcard is transformed into its own powerful intention. Already this project has taken law of attraction to a whole new level. Now, the book promises to take it even higher. It is visual. It is tactile. It brims with heartfelt desire. It’s in deep conversation with the Universe. The wishes inside are infused with the energy and spirit of the contributors of this book. The book itself vibrates at a higher level.

Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety

By

A Guidebook for Parents Navigating the New Teen Years

Learn about the “New Teen” and what it means for parenting tactics: Kids are growing up with nearly unlimited access to social media and the world wide web. Starting as early as eight years old, children are exposed to information, thought, and emotion that they are developmentally unprepared to process. As a result, saving the typical “teen parenting” tactics for thirteen-year-olds is now years too late.

Urgent advice for parents of teens: Dr. John Duffy’s parenting book is a new and necessary guide because it addresses this hidden phenomenon of the changing teenage brain. Dr. Duffy, a nationally recognized expert in parenting for nearly twenty-five years, seeks to be a guide for parents raising children who are growing up quickly and, as a result, dealing with unresolved adolescent issues that can lead to anxiety and depression.

Understand the unprecedented psychological suffering in our young people and why it is occurring: A shift has taken place in how and when children develop. Because of the exposure they face, kids are emotionally overwhelmed at a young age, and therefore, are often continuing to search for a sense of self well into their twenties. However, Dr. Duffy also expresses the good that comes with these challenges, such as the sense of justice instilled in teenagers starting at a young age.

Readers of Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety will:

  • Sort through the overwhelming circumstances of today’s teens and better understand the changing landscape of adolescence
  • Come away with a revised, conscious parenting plan more suited to addressing the current needs of the New Teen
  • Discover the joy in parenting again by reclaiming the role of your teen’s ally, guide, and consultant

If you enjoyed parenting books such as The Yes BrainHow to Raise an AdultThe Deepest Well, and The Conscious Parent, then Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety should be next on your list!

A craving for quick fixes: When the recession turned her life upside down, Stephanie Krikorian had to reinvent her life…and fast. She started ghostwriting self-help books for women. Between writing and researching she realized that everywhere she looked there was AFOG. Another fu*king opportunity for growth. Soon she wasn’t just writing each book; she was living them! This was the start of a ten-year zen bender of dieting, dating, journaling, meditating, and Marie-Kondo-ing on a quest for that ultimate self-help high.

Fifty and fabulous: Stephanie Krikorian spent her forties trying all of the dating hacks to find love and respect, all of the diets to build self-esteem in a new body, and all of the spiritual guidance to become centered through self-care. On the brink of turning fifty she realized that being better wasn’t what she craved; it was something else altogether.

How to love yourself: Zen Bender is the story of one woman’s journey to radical acceptance and self-love, with some questionable advice along the way.
