I'm grateful for the information presented, but too much time was devoted to Mindfulness / yoga exercises. Also did not like being spoken to like I am a child.
Patronizing style with a number of claims thrown in it made it hard to completely listen to it. Nearly Nothing resonated. Only the importance of sleep.
Claims get anecdotal reference. Acupuncture and footreflex get serious treatment.
I blindly bougth great courses with intersting titles. No more. This was a waste of a credit and my time.
Good and very helpful information, but I dif not apreciate the presentation of yoga throughout the course. A bit too much of Yoga for me.
The book is a lot of meditation. Telling yourself how to feel happier and more energetic. In addition to the reliance of meditation the bulk of the book is narration of what to think about and how to feel as it guides your meditation in real time meaning that even if you do think that meditation is rewarding (I don't) you can't follow the instructions unless you are in a quiet and safe place. Listening while commuting or doing chores are right out. I gave up after a few hours. I wanted a book on nutrition, fitness and lifestyle. This is just a bunch of guided meditation and empty promises. Even if you do think that this is useful (I don't) the writer never backs up claims with science. It is all based on anecdote and personal experience if anything.
It was so blatantly slanted toward women.
Knowledge and Decisions by Thomas Sowell.
Her narrative underscored the book's obvious gynocentrism.
Some interesting breathing techniques, such as Breath of Fire.
I rarely regret money spent on books, but, I did this time.
