Your Wake Up Calls

Wake Up to the Joy of You: 52 Meditations and Practices for a Calmer, Happier Life – Agapi Stassinopoulos (Harmony Books)

If you wander into most decent sized book stores, online bookseller or library you’re likely to be confronted by at least a large shelf, if not an entire section of books that fall into the general category of self-help. At the end of the day that heading is a bit of a misnomer since it is the book you select that walks you through the process of helping you through whatever difficulty it is that you seek to address.

People spend an outsized amount of time, energy and money seeking out answers to their issues. Agapi Stassinopoulos, sister of Arianna Huffington, is one of the more prolific authors in this category and her latest effort is; Wake Up to the Joy of You: 52 Meditations and Practices for a Calmer, Happier Life.

Most of the issues people are confronted with fall into a couple of basic categories; relationships, money childhood, self esteem and self-doubt. We all have a tendency to carry around an immense amount of weight; the stuff we have collected over time that we just quite seem to let go of. Stassinopolous offers some helpful guidance on how to drop some of that baggage and move forward with your life.

Set up in the form of a year’s worth of weekly, specific, meditations that are designed to help you over the hump. Some of these things may not fit what you are looking for help with, but you can generally move through the process at your own pace.
