Kiss Me, I'm Single

An Ode to the Solo Life

By Amanda Ford
Note: This is NOT a book for single women on how to find a man/ it is a guide for women who want to find their truest selves and celebrate them. As the author of the daily meditation book for teenage girls, Be True to Yourself, Amanda Ford's message of fierce individuality and even stronger identity has grown up with her audience. In her new book Kiss Me, I'm Single, Ford exhorts single women not to get lost in the pressure to be in a relationship (single women's mantra: Any relationship will do ) and not to lose themselves in a relationship. The bottom line is that the most important relationship they can have is with themselves. True love is an inside job and begins with you. It is a basic fact of life that in order to be truly happy and fulfilled with another person, you must be truly happy and fulfilled on your own first. A good relationship can enhance life for sure, but it cannot take what is just "okay" and turn in into perfect. In Kiss Me, I'm Single Amanda Ford urges readers: "Get off your derrieres and get to work on yourself. Go inward and be relentless in your search. Discover what is in you that you must do in order to bring joy into your own life." Refreshingly honest, ruefully witty and wise, Ford has also dug deep down and done the work she recommends. From her soulsearching sojourn, Amanda Ford brings back news that will empower all young women: "Love has nothing to do with another person/ it is a condition of your own heart."

Meditations and Reflections to Help End Codependence      

“In 200 short, straightforward daily lessons illustrating the many forms that detachment can take in one’s life. Casey’s latest is an easy reference guide for those seeking recovery or peace.”—Publishers Weekly

Do you ever feel like you might be giving other people too much power over your mood? Do you find yourself feeling immobilized by expectations and demands? The cure for facing codependence, says Karen Casey, is detachment.

Control your life by letting go. When we remove codependent behavior from our lives, we discover a life of balance and freedom.

What is codependency and detachment? Inside, you’ll find gems of insight for every stage of your codependence recovery journey. Through 200 recovery meditations and reflections, Casey explores how to set boundaries, control emotions, face attachment issues in adults, and more.

Make Every Move a Meditation

By

Grow by Using Exercise as Meditation

Praise for her past work includes “A great narrative on how moving your body can actually transform your brain! ”—Richard C. Davis PhD, BCN, Psychologist and Brain Trainer

#1 New Release in Sports Health & Safety, Cycling, Sports Psychology, and Walking

In Make Every Move a Meditation, learn how to find freedom using the mind-body connection as you transform movement into a powerful practice of mindful movement.

Exercise can be meditation. What do you think of when you hear the word meditation? A quiet room filled with monks? An Instagram influencer? What about moving meditation? Yoga? Tai Chi? For too long, meditation in books has focused on specific periods of meditation, rather than mediation through fitness or daily activities. What if lifting weights, dancing with your love, or walking across a room counted? What if you could use exercise as meditation? What if you could make every move a meditation?

Connect with the present moment in each movement. In Make Every Move a Meditation, award-winning author, meditation leader, and mental health advocate Nita Sweeney shows readers that fitness can be mindfulness. She teaches readers how to bring meditation and mindfulness into any activity by incorporating centuries-old techniques. Studies show that both exercise and meditation reduce anxiety, stabilize blood pressure, improve mood and cognition, and lead to a deeper self-relationship and wisdom. Movement is medicine, and meditation is medicine. Let’s combine the two with exercise as meditation.

Inside Make Every Move a Meditation, you’ll learn to:

  • Turn exercise into a meditation tool and use exercise as meditation
  • Make any activity, even walking through the house, a mindful practice
  • Enjoy the benefits of meditation while getting fit

If you like meditation books and best sellers such as Think Like a Monk, Practicing Mindfulness, or Breath, you’ll love Make Every Move a Meditation.
