    More New-Age Spirituality Than Practical Tips

    I like the basic idea of this book, which is to slow down and be more aware of the daily things in life that we can appreciate and enjoy, as well as things we can do in order to live more fully in the present. There are a few good ideas, such as appreciating the diversity of the weather instead of seeing it as a nuisance, de-cluttering with generosity, and passing on family traditions whether it be an heirloom, stories, or recipes.

    However, dominating the book is a new-age spirituality theme with an emphasis on finding one's path through exercises in self-awareness, meditation, visualization, quotes from Buddha, etc. I was hoping for more practical things for everyday life but this is clearly a book written from an Eastern religion perspective and was more of a distraction for me than helpful. The ideas that aren't centered around the new-age theme are basic common sense things most of us would think of already and nothing extraordinary. Some of the 1,001 tips are nothing more than obscure quotes that don't give practical application to the the book's theme of living in the moment.

    Overall, this book was a disappointment and wasn't what I expected based on the publisher's description of it. Anyone into new-age, Eastern religion spirituality will probably like the content. I am not, and therefore, didn't.

    I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
