“COACH YOURSELF TO HEALTH and happiness” urges the author. He knows what he is talking about: A UK bodybuilding champion in 1991, his body obsession led to drug dependency. To break the habit, he studied healing arts such as philosophy, yoga, nutrition, psychology and coaching.
So if you feel like you have been drifting for months, vaguely hoping for a different life and wanting something to change but without doing anything, then The Pocket Life Coach is what you need to push yourself in the right direction, to think about where you want to go in life.
The book includes topics ranging from stress management, time management and goal setting to menu planning, wellbeing and creativity. This workbook is your tool, your very own life coach to help you rediscover the healthiest, most productive, positive and creative you.
Chapman has managed broken the whole process down into little steps. So not only is the whole concept not too daunting, but it makes you feel that you really are beginning to change your life day by day.
I would recommend this book to anyone with a few months’ stable recovery under their belt who finds them self stuck and unsure where to take their new life.
