Okay, this is seriously one of the most exciting book reviews I have ever done! Ever since Anastasia (the positive body-image guru and all-around awesome boss lady of anastasiaamour.com) sent Inside Out my way to review I have been giddy with such utter delight and keeping it a secret was almost painful! Fan-girl freaking out aside (Anastasia is just so amazing!), this book has potential life changing powers in it – no joke! Actually, let me rephrase that – Inside Out is a way for you to tap into your own life changing potential and to fully become and own your awesome, self-loving soul! Inside Out provides a source of practical guidance in the form of a 14 day program/guide that will help you to transform your negative, self-hate into positive, fierce self-confidence. Sound to good to be true? Well, it’s not! The 14 day approach is well-rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which takes steady and ongoing progressive behavioral changes to create lasting change. I’m a firm believer in CBT and I say this with full conviction because I know the self-hate place, and I know the cycle of self-loathing. I’ve battled with depression, anxiety, forms of self-harm (Excoriation/Dermatillomania). And thanks in large part to CBT I’m in a much, much better place now. Inside Out would’ve been a fantastic guide when I was at my lowest. It’s helpful, practical, and very self-affirming. Anastasia provides an upbeat tone, and it feels like She is talking to you as you read and work through the exercises. She provides endless encouragement and it’s almost like having a totally awesome personal cheerleader motivating you to own your own excellence! Inside Out is a book that will appeal to so many women since it’s the kind that not only gets you through those rough times, it provides you with the groundwork to keep building a stronger, healthier, happier YOU!
Now for the goodies – I have a very special discount code for my readers! Inside Out comes out on November 14th and if you go to anastasiaamour.com/insideout and enter the code LAWHIMSY15 you’ll get %15 off your order of either the book or the PDF version (which can be printed out if you’d like) of Inside Out! How great is that!!
I am eager for November 14th so I can get my hands on a physical copy of Inside Out just so that I can make notes, highlight bits, and just reference the goodness out of it. I also can’t wait to share it since there are several people I’d love to recommend or even gift it to, because it is such a source of inspiration. If you or anyone you know is struggling with negative self-talk, self loathing, or any form of self-hate please give Inside Out a read and don’t be afraid to ask for help. It’s out there and YOU deserve to feel wonderful about yourself because YOU are amazing!
