Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Perfect balance, as Wilson (Instant Calm) describes it, is just what everyone needs—a high level of motivation, a sense of peace, and the ability to make purposeful choices. Here, the self-help guru and developer of The Calm Way™ offers techniques for creating that balance. He introduces readers to an image of their roles and responsibilities—a pie chart dividing work between social activities and physical against spiritual. After presenting case studies of imbalanced lives and how they can shift, Wilson leads readers in exercises, encouraging writing in the book or in a journal, to help them determine their own balanced state and take steps toward achieving it. Exercises involve the imagination and the creative side of the mind, but the descriptions are careful and logical. Upon completion of the book, readers will have a sense of where their perfect balance is, how to maintain it, and how to establish life priorities. Sure to be popular in self-help sections; recommended for larger public libraries.
