Staying healthy goes beyond medical treatment. Finding time to be grateful and mindful focuses one's attention on the present without any judgement. This helpful accessible book, with a variety of poses and writing prompts, draws the busy mama and others, no matter the age, to take the needed time to "stop and smell the roses" along life's busy path. Julie's warm and personal way of addressing the division felt between reality and self care was heartwarming. She values that health is wealth. Peace and self realization allows for inner strength to face daily challenges. This well written book allows one to begin to discover self now...in the present.

We know that modern motherhood's expectations leave us drained. That's the undercurrent of every woman's magazine, while also instructing us how to make pinterest-worthy crafts for our kids' parties, decorate the cutest cupcakes, and simultaneously shed 10 pounds. If you're tired of being tired, this book's message can be a lifeline: "It is not acceptable to sacrifice your self-care in the face of busyness." The author reminds us that self-care is not buying a new purse or binge-watching Netflix, but actively mothering ourselves - giving ourselves the care we so readily give to everyone else in our lives. As someone who is easily overwhelmed by personal growth books that prescribe a complete overhaul of one aspect of your life, ignoring the fact that you can't put the rest of your life on hold, it is reassuring that each practice is small. She tells us to try them all, in any order, and keep only the things that work for us - refreshing. The book focuses on yoga and ayurveda - breaking them down into bite-size, understandable pieces - a relaxing t-shaped twist to help digestion but also encourage ourselves to 'do' less, tracking water consumption for a week and noting how it makes us feel - and also links these physical practices to our emotional well-being. There are writing prompts to help us recall our motivations, values, and what excites us. Need more patience? There's a yoga pose to help build it. For those already overwhelmed with their to-do lists (all of us), the author encourages with stories from her own life - working full-time, writing, teaching yoga, and mothering small children. "Something had to give, so I gave to myself." My mind-shift started on page 3, as I questioned whether I could add new ideas and habits to a life already full (with work, dishes, and the guilt of not-cute-enough cupcakes). "These...practices don't take time; they give you time." Oh. Maybe I will put down the magazine and try that yoga pose.

As a working woman (but non-mama), I find that even I put myself on the back burner at work, with friends, and with loved ones. This book helped me to refocus, rethink, and reenergize my self care practices, and know that it’s okay to put myself first. I loved the easy to understand yoga poses and the writing exercises that made me dig deeper into what goals I wanted to focus on this year. This book will make you laugh, feel connected to other busy humans, and creates space for reflection which is so important this day and age. If you’re looking for a way to be healthier and kick start your journey into taking care of yourself, then this book is definitely for you!
