COLOR YOUR LIFE WITH GOOD THOUGHTS by Margaret Ann Lembo

Coloring is a wonderful way to unplug and release stress. Color these pages as a meditative practice and to increase positive thoughts.

In Color Your Life with Good Thoughts, bestselling author Margaret Ann Lembo presents an array of personally chosen images and matches them up with corresponding good thoughts based on the meaning of the image. For example, the affirmations that appear with flower illustrations are based on the aromatherapy benefits of that particular flower’s essential oil, and the messages appearing alongside the images of animals relate to that specific animal as a totem or ally.

As you color in the illustrations and the positive phrases, repeat the good thoughts aloud or in your head to help transform your life into one of peace, joy, happiness, good health, and abundance.

You can color your life with positive thoughts and design your own reality!

Margaret Ann Lembo is the owner of The Crystal Garden, a spiritual center in Palm Beach County, Florida. For close to thirty years, she has led workshops and classes around the country. Margaret Ann is highly renowned for her dedication to helping people focus on mindfulness and positive thought. She is the author of Chakra Awakening; Color Your Life with Crystals; The Essential Guide to Crystals, Minerals, and Stones; and The Essential Guide to Aromatherapy and Vibrational Healing. She has four oracle decks that focus on the power of positive thought, and her audio CDs (guided meditations and more) are distributed internationally.

INVEST IN YOURSELF WITH EXERCISE: TACTICS TO BUILD THE EXERCISE HABIT AND ENRICH & ENERGIZE YOUR WORKOUTS by Susan Smith Jones

Modern living has channeled the average person in the USA and the UK into an increasingly sedentary existence. We human beings, however, were designed and built for movement, and our bodies have not adapted well to this reduced level of activity.

Yes, what we put into our bodies with nutrition is of utmost importance, but how we move our bodies is equally as important. If you do exercise regularly, you may have to cope with lack of enthusiasm at one time or another. How can you stay motivated to workout? “Just do it” was one of Nike’s rallying slogans of the late ‘90s, but sometimes it can be tough to live up to. Sooner or later, a lack of motivation, boredom or burnout will enter the picture.

Invest in Yourself with Exercise is the perfect book if you want to make transformative changes in your level of fitness, reshape your body, say good-bye to excess fat, make your workouts enjoyable and rewarding and see results quickly. Susan’s well-designed physical fitness program can add years of fulfillment, vibrant health and peace of mind to your life.

“In the pages of this informative and uplifting book, you’ll learn from Susan:

  • the importance of exercise for overall high-level wellness
  • how to get the most from your workouts and stay motivated to exercise
  • tips to prevent exercise boredom, burnout and injury
  • the best exercises to look younger, bolster energy and lose weight
  • surefire ways to fight excess fat by mastering your metabolism
  • why prayer-walking enhances mental and spiritual health
  • how to turn dreams into reality—the power of choice and commitment

Plus so much more. As Susan told me often in our training sessions, ‘An investment in yourself and in your health is the best investment you can make.’ This book will inspire, motivate and empower you, too.”

—David Craddock, MA, BA

THE CHIMP DIET: WHAT OUR BODIES WERE DESIGNED TO EAT by Scott Joseph

Chimp Food_web coverIf we mimic the healthy diet of our closest living relatives, chimpanzees—who are almost 99% like us and live virtually disease free—could we live disease free, too? Our digestive systems are nearly identical to that of chimps, so it only makes sense that we should be eating more like them. Wild chimps generally don’t have heart attacks, strokes, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, headaches, ADD, depression, or any of the thousands of other illnesses and diseases (including obesity) that we suffer from today. The biggest difference between chimps and humans is that they are healthy . . . and we are NOT!

“When it comes to my well-being, I trust chimpanzees more than I trust doctors, scientists, and governments.”—Scott Joseph

Scott Joseph is an avid cyclist, scuba diver, water skier, wakeboarder, musician, and snowboarder with a passion for healthy, natural living. He is the Founder and President of Chimp Food, Inc., located in Davie, Florida. Scott follows a vegetarian/vegan/nutritarian diet, but mostly considers himself a Chimpatarian (a term he personally coined). He resides in Pembroke Pines, Florida.
