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.

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.

Enjoy Financial Freedom and Discover the Money Management Rules for More Money Now

The author of More Money Now, Nicole Victoria, is a CEO, money coach, and financial literacy advocate. She didn’t grow up with wealth. But she learned the secrets to financial freedom and now specializes in helping 20 and 30 something women effortlessly manage their money and build bank accounts that never stop growing.

Money isn’t everything, but everything takes money. Maybe you have debt (hellooo student loans + credit cards). You feel like you’ll always be playing catch up. Maybe you’ve tried to get help before, tried to budget, followed traditional advice… but it just doesn’t work for you. You’re stressed and overwhelmed, feeling stuck because you don’t know where things went wrong.

The bad news first. The advice that worked for our parents doesn’t work for us. Times have changed. The average person in their 20s has racked up $23,872 in debt, and this number jumps to $62,658 in their 30s. And it gets worse:

  • 79% who budget fail
  • 54% live from paycheck-to-paycheck
  • 80% of Americans are in debt 
  • 40% could not handle a $400 unexpected expense
  • 64% don’t have enough money to retire

Now, the good news. Maybe for you, money has always seemed complicated. Maybe you believe that because you’re not good with math, you couldn’t be good with money. But, to be good with money and build wealth, you don’t need to be good at math, you don’t need to be born rich, and you don’t need a 6 figure salary.

Inside this book learn the money management rules that enabled Nicole to:

  • Pay off her $40,000 of debt in 18 months
  • Pay for her wedding in cash
  • Save her first $100k by 25
  • Buy her dream home
  • Feel financially stable enough for kids
  • Build $500k net worth in her 20s
  • Grow her net worth to over $1M at 30

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 Tibetan, Cycling, Sports & Outdoors Reference, 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.
