Overview

Overview

Everyone experiences those days—or weeks or months or years—when it seems like nothing is going right. When things in our relationships, careers, finances, environment, and even our bodies aren't going as planned (and when it comes to our bodies, things never seem to go as planned!), our emotions follow. How can we get back that inner peace we so desire?
With her signature wit, Karen Scalf Linamen helps women put it all into perspective. She shows how to feel alive and vibrant despite our circumstances. With hilarious true stories and plain-sense practicality, this book is just what women need when life seems to be falling apart at the seams. After all, life on this planet is bound to make us crazy, but, as Karen says, some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints.

Read an Excerpt

EXCERPT FROM CATALOG
You remember how I mentioned all the stuff muscles do? I said they give us strength, determine our paths, get us going, keep us on track, and even help us change our worlds. There's something else they do for us. When we find ourselves flat on our faces in a dark place, muscles get us back on our feet, moving toward an exit, and reaching for the switch that makes the world illuminated and bright once again. And the next time the light goes out at the end of one of your tunnels, a well-toned sense of peace, hope, and joy can do the very same thing. In the following chapters, we're going to talk about ten ways we can stretch, flex, and tone our peace, hope, and joy. Every day. Rain or shine. Even when it's dark outside. Especially when it's dark outside. Life is too short and too rich for anything less. After all, you and I've got places to go, things to do, people to love, life to live, and dances to dance. Who wants to stay home in bed because of a little inclement weather? The bad news is that sometimes skies are gray. The good news is that you and I don't run on solar power. Whether we realize it or not, we really do have the moxie we need to hone the moves that will help us get the most mileage and joy out of our lives. Even if we do look like C3PO when we belly dance.
