You Can Heal Your Life – Book Review

Louise Hays ‘You can heal your life’ is a self-help book thats quite hard hitting and has a ‘straight to the point’ format but is easy to understand. It clearly explains the theory behind each task and doesn’t put any time scale on task completion. It’s also good for having a read through before re-reading to take part in the tasks. The affirmations can be long so it would help to write them down as you go, so that you can read them when you feel like you need to distract yourself or feel like you need the support. Although this book is hard hitting, it does feel positive and has a gentle undertone. You really get a feel for Louise’s compassion and desire to help. I would highly recommend it for anyone who is struggling with self-esteem, confidence or self-image as it has a lot of reflective work.

The Magic – Book Review

The Magic by Rhonda Byrne is a light hearted, fun and enlightening book that will make you feel upbeat and positive. Like a good deep tissue massage – it will knead out those negative habits and give you the tools you need to be more positive and feel happier. I particularly recommend this book to anyone who feels they are ‘stuck in a rut’ or feel lost in life – whether its work, love, self-image or whatever this book can help shake you out of negative though patterns and give you that boost you need to take that big step towards the things you want or use it as the ‘sign’ that you’ve been waiting for!
