Turning to a book for advice is an inexpensive and potentially life-changing alternative for those who wish to create and maintain harmony, and reading is a relaxing pastime that offers a much-needed respite from the demands of everyday life.
Pitt Meadows, BC (Vocus/PRWEB) March 22, 2011
Meeting. Dentist appointment. Work. Oil change. Email to reply to. Phone call to make. Dog food to buy. Laundry to wash. Oh, and find something to eat, take a shower and throw on something presentable – the in-laws are coming over tonight. For many of us, a typical day entails all those things and more. Ironically, the more overwhelmed we become, the less we’re likely to successfully accomplish, so to increase productivity it’s more effective to stop, take a breath, and do less. Enjoy a moment of silence. Here to guide you to higher levels of serenity and peace is Finding the Balance: Insight to Understanding Life’s Lessons (published by Balboa Press), the comforting new lifestyle guide by Shelley L. Hallmark.
Massages, yoga classes and vacations all require time and money, precious commodities in an overscheduled, financially uncertain world. Turning to a book for advice is an inexpensive and potentially life-changing alternative for those who wish to create and maintain harmony, and reading is a relaxing pastime that offers a much-needed respite from the demands of everyday life.
The key to success is choosing the right book, one that is versatile, encouraging and written by a credible source. Finding the Balance fits the bill with all-encompassing advice that Hallmark delivers in an upbeat, conversational style. She draws upon the wisdom gleaned from her mentors, extensive research in the field of self help and her own personal experiences in 14 succinct chapters that cover a spectrum of emotions, good and bad, and final chapters empower readers with the ability to determine their weaknesses and recognize what triggers negativity for them.
Hallmark doesn’t offer empty promises or instant results. She’s realistic about the desire and determination required to banish negativity and cope with manipulation, discrimination and resistance from others. The journey might not always be easy, but the rewards are immeasurable.
“My only intent with this book is to open others to look within themselves, learn how to create positive change, and pass this gift on to the people in their lives,” Hallmark says. “If everyone was to live their life positively, think of how much change the human race could make.” Do your part – ignite your inner spark and let it shine for all to see; pay the positive energy forward. The journey starts in Finding the Balance.
