Publisher's Summary

The CrossFit superstar and author of the best-selling The Badass Body Diet is back with a day-by-day guide designed to encourage habit change through fun, dynamic daily tasks challenging your mind, body, and spirit.

Christmas Abbott knows the importance of a badass lifestyle - physically, mentally, and spiritually. The key is balance: using essential daily practices for the mind, body, and soul. The Badass Life is her monthlong program based on building positive daily habits, to help you achieve a higher quality of life and a heightened sense of self-worth.

It takes 30 days to break a bad habit and 30 days to create a good one. Christmas provides a daily challenge for your mental, physical, and spiritual awareness to help you develop positive thinking and successful behavior and boost your brainpower. Each day is centered around a specific "action theme", such as "Eliminate Excuses", "Lean on Mentors", and "Feel Sexy, Be Sexy". Christmas shows you how to create a better blueprint for your daily habits to maximize their beneficial effects and includes suggestions for healthy eating, fun puzzles, life questions, and brain teasers to get you thinking in new directions. Christmas also emphasizes the need for daily spiritual wellness and gives you ideas for practicing intended acts of connection, such as helping a complete stranger unconditionally, setting specific intentions, and recording what you appreciate about yourself.

No matter your level of health well-being, The Badass Life will help you channel the power of the mind-body-spirit connection to become your best self in every way.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Narration ruined it

I wish I could get a refund and buy the hard copy. The content is good and has solid steps and could be easy program to follow. If I could stand listening to the fake laughs and over pronunciation.

Narration Stale

I loved Christmas's voice in the beginning, and I really wished she narrated the whole book! The Narrator sounded very fake and made the book hard to listen to.

Best book I have read in a long time...

Would you consider the audio edition of The Badass Life to be better than the print version?

Audio is good as a supplement to book. Book has spots to work on the process.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Badass Life?

When I realized that I can be a bad ass even though I am 64 years old.

What does Christmas Abbott and Kate Rudd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Christmas's personal experience and how she has lived the process.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Get ready to be a badass, for ages 10 to infinity.

Christmas puts this information together very well

There are not many new concepts in this book, but they are organized well.

Eh

Honestly, it didn’t keep my attention. Couldn’t finish the book :( I am not sure if it was the subject matter or the way it was being read but I just couldn’t listen.

Good content, awful narration

While this audiobook contains some interesting ideas and useful action steps, I feel like I’m dying inside listening to the robotic narrator. Hoping at least one person reads this review and saves themselves by just buying the book to read. The intro that Christmas narrates herself is awesome! Wish I could say the same about the rest...

What a Kick ass book.

This book was very inspirational and motivational! It hits every staple on how to achieve the “badass” life we all so desperately want and deserve! As well as so many helpful lists, tips, charts, and journal topics! Hands down this was a great one for me! Especially in this very hard few years I have been going though. I believe this is a must read for all women of all ages! It’s helps build confidence and gives you all the resources to do so.

Very Disappointed

I really wish I could’ve gotten more from this book. The narrator sounded like a really bad call-center recording and if I heard the words “such as” one more time I was going to lose it. I quit listening at Chapter 7, wishing Christmas had read it herself. Very disappointed.

Useful

I found the narration rather robotic and monotone so only having to listen to it for about 10 minutes a day was a relief. Some great stuff in there and working the written exercises every day really establishes the messages and gives the listener a chance to take ownership of the changes and challenges. There was quite a bit that I’d heard or read before so, I’ve held back on 5 stars.

Transformative

So much info in this book & so well put together.

I was on a similar downward spiral as Christmas and since I turned 30 have been on a journey of self improvement. So I knew a lot of the techniques and philosophies already and man do they work. Great to have a reminder though and another perspective and also lots of new stuff I hadn’t come across.

It really helps me to listen to books by inspirational people and Christmas is truly motivational. I will finally get around to making a vision board and Christmas is going on it.

So many people tell me I take things too far - eg healthy eating, reading about parenting but I have never agreed and now learnt from this that healthy obsessions are kick ass and what make success! (As long as they don’t become unhealthy).

I’m really getting into fitness and loving how strong and powerful I feel, it really does change your life.

I just wish Christmas narrated her own books.
