Review: 99 Essential Weight Loss Blogposts

99 Essential Weight Loss Blogs: So You Can Start, Stick to It, Keep It Off99 Essential Weight Loss Blogs: So You Can Start, Stick to It, Keep It Off by Kenneth Schwarz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I was originally going to rate this book a three out of five, because it is much the same as any other weight loss book. The general ideas are the same, but this book focus is on your mental state as you lose the weight. Which for most people may be the key to actually losing weight.

The reason I changed it, is because, without really realizing it, until I went to write this review (super long after I read it because I got sick) and realized that subconsciously I took in more than I thought I did.

I’ve been implementing many of these strategies (in slightly varied ways, that work better for me) into my routine over the past few weeks and I’ve noticed a difference already.

Review: The 20/20 Diet

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I don’t quite know why I thought I may like this book, even though I’m not a fan of Dr. Phil.

Nothing special about this book. Same old ‘eat healthy, exercise’ routine. I honestly think diets are a waste of time. Right mind set, determination and healthy eating and exercise are all you need. Not the carb diets, not the juice fast diets, and not even Dr. Phil’s 20 ‘good’ foods diet.

Just plain old eating right, and keeping fit.

Review: The Anxiety Survival Guide

I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I wish a book as easy to read as this, with as much information regarding anxiety existed when I was in school.

There isn’t much more I can say about this book besides that anyone, regardless of age, is dealing with anxiety they need to read this book.

Review: Mindful Parenting for ADHD

Growing up ADHD had such a negative stigma attached to it. Kids would tease; “That’s the boy with ADHD”, as if it was a contagious disease. While I’ve personally never had to deal with ADHD, I do know about compulsion disorders and mental illness, which are often viewed with the same stigma.

This book is a simple easy way to explain ADHD to parents regardless of whether or not they have children who have been diagnosed.

It provides tools for parents and makes communicating with children with ADHD easier.

Great read.

Review: Consciousness Archaeology

Consciousness Archaeology
Consciousness Archaeology by Maximus Freeman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received Maximus Freeman’s Consciousness Archaeology for free through GoodReads FirstReads.

The whole concept of the book is to expose Freeman’s personal journey to self-enlightenment and peace. I love the ideas and methods that he has found and included in the book. Many of the steps on the path to peace are things that I will incorporate into my life.

The only thing I wasn’t a huge fan of was the way the question and answers were written, seamed a little odd to me.

Overall; a must read. Short, but to the point and meaningful.
