On Your Inner Light
usually review fitness books, but Turn On Your Inner Light
is no ordinary fitness book, focusing on pumping up the muscles
or trimming down the fat. This is about how physical fitness caters
to the mind and soul as much as to the body.
you ever been afraid? Author Debbie Eisenstadt Mandel offers an
exercise regime for fear. Have you ever felt pain? There's a fitness
plan for that, too. Ever been too busy to exercise? You guessed
it, there's a special plan just for you. Need patience? Want intimacy?
Been through trauma? Want to love yourself more? There is a fitness
plan specially designed for each of these and dozens more situations.
fitness plan includes mind/body prescriptions that focus on such
non-fitness solutions as eliminating clutter, diet, breathing, mental
images and outside activities. Each prescription is followed by
a meditation to reach into the soul. Finally, a series of physical
exercises follows, including detailed explanations with diagrams.
book is imaginative and well-written, and even inspiring in a number
of places - definitely a success for this first-time author. Even
if a reader does not follow the fitness regime, the introductions
to each fitness plan make for good self-help reading. The text is
punctuated with subtly humorous cartoons, making the reading more
is the missing link in your personal development plan, then Turn
On Your Inner Light might be the missing book in your collection.
