66 Day Journal

Achieve Your Goals in 66 Days

“As a professional athlete, I know the power of a well-planned routine, but what I love about the 66 Day Journal is the combination of success and fulfilment.”  —Flavio Simonetti, professional athlete and Founder/CEO “Coach Carter App”

This daily guided journal by cutting-edge speaker and bestselling author Matthew Mockridge serves as a “training partner” to help you create and firmly integrate healthy habits and routines into your everyday life.

Create new habits―and stick with them. Routines can be hard to establish. Often, our goals require us to make difficult changes in our daily lives. But, we can make those changes and commit to a consistent routine. As readers of the 66 Day Journal will learn, it is through maintaining regular healthy habits that true passion for a healthy lifestyle emerges.

Ask quality questions, have a quality life. If we aren’t asking ourselves the important questions―“What am I proud of? What could I have done better?”―then maintaining healthy habits is harder than ever. This guided journal walks us through the difficult questions we should be asking ourselves every day. The carefully constructed questions combine mindfulness, positive psychology, and proven strategies for increased productivity to help you stay on track.

Dive into Matthew Mockridge’s 66 Day Journal and learn how to:

  • Simplify overwhelming “marathon” goals into 66 achievable mini goals
  • Set a goal using the SMART theory (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-bound)
  • Visualize where you want to be and work to get there

If you’ve enjoyed titles such as Getting to Good90 Day Cycle to New Habits Journal, or Hello New Me, then you’ll love Matthew Mockridge’s 66 Day Journal: A Guided Journal for Creating New Habits.

Postcards to the Universe

Connect with the Universe and Your Own Deepest Desires

“Read the book and you will believe that you can change your life. Do the exercises and you will change your life.” —Dr. Elisa Robyn, PHD in psychology and author of The Way of the Well and Pirate Wisdom.

Open a conversation with the world around you. We have the ability to be in open communication with the Universe, the loving energy behind all creation. But do we listen to what the Universe has to say? Do we use our own voices to speak back? Artist-photographer, popular radio host, and blogger Melisa Caprio helps us enter into deep conversation with the Universe through combining creative visualization with the power of intention.

Identify the desires of your heart. Too often we are so caught up in daily life that we don’t stop and ask ourselves what we truly desire. While it is tempting to stay in our comfort zone, our heart longs for more than the mundane. It desires manifestation. Caprio is here to foster that state of mindfulness and spirituality through photography, postcard art, written messages, and affirmations from others who are living their greatest desires.

Harness your own spiritual power. Creators, mystics, artists, and spiritualists will find representation and inspiration in this book. Likewise, those who have been putting their dreams on hold or who are dissatisfied with the status quo will find this book to be a visual guide to attaining the creativity they long for in their lives. Each of us possesses the power to bend the ear of the Universe and share what it is we want most.

  • Put mind over matter and pursue your deepest desires
  • Form an active and poignant relationship with the Universe
  • Reach your full potential and feel empowered to live an inspired and successful life

If books such as The Universe Has Your BackBecoming Supernatural, and Mind to Matter have spoken to you, then you’ll love Melisa Caprio’s Postcards to the Universe.

A Bright Clean Mind

Explore the Connection Between Diet and Creativity

…discover how to wake up your life force by embracing a more connected way of living and eating.” ―Elise Marie Collins, author of Super Ager

#1 New Release in Art Instruction

Go vegan for a better life and world. If we can employ our imagination to create worlds from scratch, we can surely use our imaginative power to envision a new way of seeing ourselves in relation to the animals we eat. On the other side of this brain transformation is a lifestyle that is ideal for our own health and emotional well-being and is much more environmentally sustainable.

You can find vegan food everywhere. When people ask how author and certified vegan lifestyle coach Camille DeAngelis feels satisfied on a vegan diet, she thinks of the moment in James and the Giant Peach when the Grasshopper and the Centipede fret that they have nothing to eat until James points out that they're traveling inside an enormous piece of fruit. There is plenty, Camille reminds us in A Bright Clean Mind, a self-help motivational book for artists and creatives. Everything we could ever want to eat, and more, is all around us.

Improve your workflow. Camille believes that creative hobbies and habits reinvigorate one's primary work. But she knits, sews, embroiders, and bakes for the pleasure of it, too. Her productivity and brain power have been remarkable since going vegan in 2012, and even more importantly, she no longer feels any of the frustration or uncertainty artists tend to accept as part of the creative process.

A Bright Clean Mind is perfect for every creative suffering from brain fog. Discover:

  • The effect your diet may be having on your creativity and mood
  • Examples of how going vegan is giving yourself brain food
  • Ways to incorporate a vegan diet into your busy life

If you liked Brain FoodBreaking the Habit of Being Yourself, or Grain Brain, you’ll love A Bright Clean Mind.

The Restaurant Diet

By

Eating Out Can Be Healthy Too

The ultimate guide for dining out guilt-free. The Restaurant Diet, now in its second edition, offers a diet plan that takes pressure off dieters who don’t always have time for healthy cooking. Using his easy-to-follow plan, author Fred Bollaci lost 150 pounds—and kept them off.

The secret to a plan you can maintain. Fred Bollaci grew up in an Italian family. When his parents divorced he developed eating compulsions. He tried every fad diet and every new food recipe book, but failed to find a lasting solution. With the help of his doctor, a nutritionist, a trainer, and a psychologist, he was able to devise a four-phase diet and exercise plan―that worked! In this book Fred reveals the real secret: it’s about why one overeats in the first place. Fred shares how to tackle emotional issues that lead to compulsive overeating through an integrated spiritual approach.

Why integrating spirituality is so important. After a “near death” experience and “spiritual awakening,” Fred learned to like and eventually love himself enough to get his priorities straight, lose a ton of weight, eat better, exercise, and adopt an attitude of gratitude for his miraculous second chance. He has discovered his life’s purpose, found true happiness and contentment, improved every area of his life, and lives a life he never could have imagined. Fred has helped coach and inspire hundreds of clients to lose thousands of pounds with his compassionate approach. He looks great, feels great, and can enjoy a healthy gourmet lifestyle wherever he is. If he can become his best self, then you can too.

Tips in The Restaurant Diet include how to:

  • Read a menu
  • Ask key questions of the restaurant staff
  • Integrate a spiritual component into your diet and exercise plan

Readers who have tried books like Keto Meal Prep by FlavCityKeto Restaurant Favorites or Eat What You Love will appreciate the tips and advice in The Restaurant Diet, 2nd Edition.

Make sure you’re putting the right things on your list, not just lists of tasks but those things you truly want to do that will nourish your soul that ensure you have a good day, everyday.

Make lists work for you. Anyone can make a list. But can that list make you a calmer, more mindful, super productive and less stressed version of yourself? It’s easy to become overwhelmed by to-do’s, bucket lists and goals. The secret to success is not just about what you put on your list, but what you intentionally leave off. Less is more. Leading with intention and how you’d like your life to feel is key.

  • Tap into your own productivity style to get more done
  • Curate your list making to best serve the lifestyle you want to lead

Sex After Grief

By

#1 New Release in Sacred Sexuality, Winner of the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA) Writing Award in Service/Self-Help ─ Reclaim Your Sexuality After Loss

An Honest Approach to Hard Questions: Sex is complicated at the best of times—but when we’re overcome by grief, it’s especially mysterious and confusing. How do we nurture ourselves as sexual beings when we’re grieving the death of a partner? Why does taking care of ourselves sexually matter at a time when we’d rather hide under the covers and wail? How do we know when it’s time to open ourselves to the sexual phase of a new relationship? And how do we do it?

A Grief Book like No Other: Sex after Grief is the first book to address sex and grief together and treat sex as a normal, positive, life-affirming part of emerging from such a difficult time. Joan Price, the top expert on senior sex, draws on her own experiences as a widow since 2008, when she lost the love of her life to cancer. She shares her raw grief journey, sexual reawakening (and the many stumbles along the way), and attempts to dip back into dating, along with excellent advice on handling each step.

Recovery on Your Own Timeline, in Your Own Way: As Price says, there’s no right or wrong method or timeline for bringing our sexuality back into into our lives, whether it’s with our own hands, a friend with benefits, a hook-up, a new companion, or any combination. Sex After Grief includes a variety of people’s personal stories from folks of all genders and orientations. Some jumped into sex quickly. Some took years. Some withdrew from sexual possibility. No one was wrong, and no choice is defective or shameful.

Sex After Grief includes:

  • Inspiring tales of how different people brought sex back into their lives after the loss of their spouse or partner
  • Guidelines for dating again and getting sexual with a new person
  • Reasons that solo sex is healthy and can be the path to feeling sexual again
  • Advice from therapists, grief counselors, and sex coaches
  • Self-help takeaways for creating an action plan

Readers of Modern LossThe Grief Recovery Handbook and Second Firsts will grow from and appreciate Sex After Grief.

Searching for That Self-Help High

Yahoo Finance Best Business Books of 2019 and #1 New Release in Yoga, Zen Philosophy, and Humor

Craving a quick fix. 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 freaking 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.

A Self-confidence book for women. For anyone tired of promises to change everything in just thirty days, this book is a breath of fresh air. Zen Bender is the story of one woman's journey to radical acceptance, with some questionable advice along the way. A witty, moving, insightful story, the woman behind bestselling celebrity self-help books shares her story of being hooked on the self-help fix for a decade before learning that all the self-help in the world won't help you trust your gut.

Readers who enjoyed self-confidence books for women like The Universe Has Your BackThe Self-Love Experiment, or The Gifts of Imperfection; will love Zen Bender: A Decade-Long Enthusiastic Quest to Fix Everything (That Was Never Broken).

Decompress Your Stress

Anxious Art is for readers and doodlers seeking relief from anxiety and stress through meditative, creative processes.

What if we took our stress and used it to create art that brings us peace?

A 2016 study at Drexel university that examined the effects of creative activity on reducing levels of the stress hormone cortisol discovered that “45 minutes of art making…resulted in statistically significant lowering of cortisol levels.” We all know cortisol is the stress hormone, so grab a pen or pencil and let the meditations and writing prompts in this mindfulness journal take you on a calming journey to a healthier, happier mind.

T.S. Eliot once said, “Anxiety is the handmaiden of creativity,” but if he had this creative journal during times of worry, he surely would have said creativity was the handmaiden to peace. With this friendly, calming companion, you will find that you are much more present in the here and now.

A unique guided journal that will calm and inspire: When used as self-expression, creativity can allow us to take part in what psychologists call “sublimation,” or the transformation of negative or socially unacceptable impulses into socially acceptable or even beautiful creations. Anxious Art offers inventive prompts, art projects, and affirmations to inspire artistic activities that distract from feelings of distress and anxiety. As you experience this transformative guided journal, you will work with:

  • Lyrical affirmations that build self-confidence and reduce fear
  • Therapeutic writing exercises that root you in the present and spark joy
  • Doodling that calms your emotions
  • Guided breathing exercises that bring you into the present moment

Running Can Be the Best Therapy for Depression

“Nita's brave, honest book imparts hard-won lessons on using running to combat depression.” ―Scott Douglas, contributing writer for Runner's World and author of Running Is My Therapy

#1 Best Seller in Running & Jogging, Exercise & Fitness, Depression, and Bipolar Disorder

An unforgettable story of tenacity, running therapy, beating depression, and the companionship of a dog. The Dog Writers Association of America awarded Nita Sweeney a Maxwell Medallion for excellence in writing about the Human/Animal Bond for her memoir.

Running is my therapy. Before she discovered running therapy, Nita Sweeney was 49 years-old, chronically depressed, occasionally manic, and unable to jog for more than 60 seconds at a time. Using running, Nita discovered an inner strength she didn’t know she possessed, and with the help of her canine companion, she found herself on the way to completing her first marathon. In her memoir, Sweeney shares how she overcame emotional and physical challenges to finish the race and come back from the brink.

It's the best therapy for depression. Anyone who has struggled with depression knows the ways the mind can defeat you. However, it is possible to transform yourself with the power of running. You may learn that you can endure more than you think, and that there’s no other depression therapy quite like pavement beneath your feet.

Depression Hates a Moving Target is a witty and poignant story of rediscovery. Whether you’re born to run or just looking for rebirth:

  • Be inspired by the powerful story of one woman―and her dog
  • Cheer on Nita as she endures the challenges of a marathon and a mind in turmoil
  • Discover the power of running to overcome obstacles and boost your mental health

Rediscover Love and Desire after Sexual Assault

Readers of The Body Keeps the ScoreThe Deepest Well and Trauma Stewardship should read Want: Recovering Desire after Sexual Assault.

Have the courage to heal. We know, increasingly, how common and devastating sexual violence is for women, but we don’t always talk about how survivors can recover from the trauma and return to desire, sexuality, trust, and pleasure. Want is the story of how Julie Peters did just that—and how you can, too.

Move past the fog of trauma.  In the years after the assault, Julie was in what she calls the fog of trauma: the colorless, tasteless experience of barely getting through the day. No one—not counsellors, support groups, or other survivors—could give her any advice about how to find the desire that could bring her back to joy, intimacy, and connection. She had to make it up on her own. In Want, Julie tells the story of getting from the devastation of trauma to living a full life in eight sometimes challenging, often bumbling, and occasionally delightful steps.

Experience hope, healing and recovery. We have plenty of stories about the helplessness, frustration, and vengeful feelings that can follow trauma. Culturally, we have started a conversation about these experiences, and we’re all confused about what this all means for our relationships with each other. We need stories of hope, healing, and recovery. Survivors of assault, if you've been thinking to yourself, "I thought it was just me," Julie is here to show you that you are not alone. Your loved ones may not know how to support you, but they can learn more about your experiences and how to walk alongside you through this book, just as you can learn how to recover from the trauma you've experienced. Want offers a window into one person’s experience of recovery—plus the happy ending we all need to know is possible after trauma.

#1 New Release in Eating Disorders ─ Winning My Battle With Eating Disorders

Finding My FULL: This is my journey from starving to letting myself be FULL–physically & emotionally. What is living a FULL life? Having anorexia, bulimia, or vacillating between the two, you are trying to achieve an empty feeling through starvation or purging. Living a FULL life is a life where you aren’t starving anymore―starving for acceptance and love from others and yourself. It’s a life where you are feeding your mind and soul with good thoughts and foods. A life without your eating disorder.

Victim of the eating disorder monster: Imagine waking in a hospital bed to find your frail, pale arm punctured by an IV transferring fluids and nutrients into your weak, stiff body. What happened? You’re an adult, age twenty-six, and you just had a seizure precipitated by your chronic, secretive, decades-long struggle with unacknowledged eating disorders. You have no friends and no normal young-adult experiences. Living FULL is written by Danielle Sherman-Lazar, a woman who passed through the eating disorder crucible to recovery, sharing the most intimate and shameful details of her mental illness. Living FULL is Danielle's story.

Hidden out of shame: Eating disorders in young adults are hardly talked about, but are pervasive. Eating disorders are kept hidden out of shame. A groundbreaking 2012 study published in the International Journal of Eating Disorders found that about 13 percent of women over age 50 exhibit eating disorder symptoms.

Journey to recovery: Living FULL chronicles the author's step-by-step descent into the full-blown eating disorder nightmare and her path to recovery. Recovery comes from the Maudsley Approach, a regimen of supervised controlled eating or refeeding by out-patient helpers that eventually can result in recovery.
