{ GET IT NOW }

a year of living kindly bookBeing kind is something most of us do when it’s easy and when it suits us. Being kind when we don’t feel like it, or when all of our buttons are being pushed, is hard. But that’s also when it’s most needed; that’s when it can defuse anger and even violence, when it can restore civility in our personal and virtual interactions. Kindness has the power to profoundly change our relationships with other people and with ourselves. It can, in fact, change the world.

In this book, Donna Cameron shares her experience committing to 365 days of practicing kindness. She presents compelling research into the myriad benefits of kindness, including health, wealth, longevity, improved relationships, and personal and business success. She explores what a kind life entails, and what gets in the way of it. And she provides practical and experiential suggestions for how each of us can strengthen our kindness muscle so choosing a life of kindness becomes ever easier and more natural. An inspiring, practical guide that can help any reader make a commitment to kindness, A Year of Living Kindly shines a light on how we can create a better, safer, and more just world―and how you can be part of that transformation.

{ GET IT NOW }

color draw collage bookAn expressive art therapy workbook to help cope with everyday stressors in a fun and enjoyable way. This is such a fun way to relax and do something fun outside of work and chores and other things that we “have” to do.

Self-help, stress management, and coloring all come together to create an interactive and therapeutic journal. This book offers practical skills in a fun-to-follow format. Readers will enjoy creating relaxing pieces of art while learning the knowledge necessary to change their reaction to stress. While creating art, readers will be looking at situations in their life with a new approach. They will be creating tangible images to help clarify their thoughts and emotions.

Based on proven, practiced art therapy techniques, as well as the author’s experience working with stressed inpatients and outpatients dealing with various medical issues, Jill’s primary focus as a counselor is to help these people to learn how to help themselves by teaching practical coping skills to help change their lifestyle.

In the trend of adult coloring books, this goes above and beyond—all of the art therapy directives included in Color, Draw, Collage have been used by her patients in group or individual art therapy. The theories and suggestions discussed have been used in weekly lectures and individual discussions for years. Art therapy gets to the root of the problem much faster than verbal therapy alone. When people actually see their thoughts and feelings in front of them, on paper, it has a profound effect. The effect is lasting because there is an image present to remind them of the thought and the desire to change.
