by Jeannette McCallum
It’s an attractive book physically – text printed clearly on quality paper, font size chosen to be read easily.
The content is ordered into brief sections – a single line quotation, a paragraph, a page or two at most, so it’s easily digested. This is a book that can be picked up, a thought or observation absorbed in a spare moment in a busy life.
The author, who has a Wellness practice where she gives natural therapy treatments, teaches yoga, and offers workshops in associated therapies, has collected pieces of wisdom from throughout the ages and shares it in the form of inspirational quotes and brief instruction.
Wisdom from ancient masters such as Lao Tzu and Plato to contemporary figures like Sophie Loren and Steve Jobs sit comfortably on the pages.
Sections included are – beginnings, self-study, attitudes, branching out, the big picture, values and boundaries, stumbling blocks, illness, understand your body, nurture your body, healing, mind and spirit.
Simple techniques are given to combat life’s unideal feelings – worry, fear, anger, sadness, tension – and to improve symptoms of bodily disharmony including poor eyesight and digestion.
This book may well prove to be a starting place for those who wish to better understand themselves – body, mind, and spirit.
The text is largely jargon-free, but those with some life experience will gain more from it. Wellbeing From Within would make a good gift for a middle-aged friend.
