4 out of 5 stars.
I would like to thank Beyond Words Publishing for a free ARC of this book in exchange for an open and honest review.
Being someone who has always strongly believed in the energy we gain from our surroundings, sights, smells, sounds, memories – I loved this book.
From the initial introduction on what body intelligence is and our ‘mind, body and spirit’ approach to things, through to the different occasions focusing our body’s energies on improving us, it was a great read.
Each chapter is a different ‘energy situation’ I guess you could say. It includes an example of someone in that situation, what they did to remedy it as well as some great guidance on how the reader could also benefit from similar actions. I did find myself looking forward to the “try this” moments within ‘Body Intelligence’.
The layout was a little clunky and blocky for me and so was a bit slow to read at times. I’m more of a ‘wide open spaces’ type. It probably is a personal choice though. But it did make it come across as some pretty heavy reading. Though, saying that, I did still gain advice and guidance so it’s not such a bad thing.
Would I recommend this book to others? Yes I would. I’m very much one for trying to improve your mood, life and health through changing how you look at a situation and react to something. I always seek the positive in both good and bad experiences. And I feel this book has some really good advice as to why this works. Don’t go for the energy drinks, sugary foods or expensive gimmicks. Just focus on how the situation makes you feel and turn your energy from draining to collecting.
Would I buy this book for myself? Yes I would. I can see myself turning to specific chapters all the time to help me find a better mindset and improve where I’m finding myself.
In summary: This is a terrific little text book on helping you learn about the energy we all have and how to benefit from it.
Until next time,
