The Gurus' Guide to Serenity
A Me-time Menu of Celebrity Stress ReducersBook - 2006 | 1st Collins pbk. ed.
An indispensable guide to creating "me time" in your life, revealed by celebrities' favorite gurus. For the first time here are the secrets behind the gurus' wisdom for happier, better living--from fitness to meditation to skin care.
The mid-life crisis, the family crisis, the career crisis, the relationship crisis--everything nowadays seems to be a crisis. We are in a time of fast-paced overachieving, leaving us too overwhelmed, overstressed, and overextended to enjoy the simplest details that make us truly happy. Cooking, baths, facials, painting, planting, and deep breathing are overlooked, yet they may very well be the saviors of our sanity. Celebrities have the means to find these pleasures, though--Marisa Tomei has her yoga and her guru Sat Jivan and Salma Hayek is invigorated by regular reflexology massages. But what do you do to save your sanity? In this accessible, fully illustrated guide, you can learn the celebrities' secrets to finding "me time," told by the gurus who encourage them to take respite from the insanity of daily living. Learn about Susan Lucci's perfect bath remedy; Goldie Hawn's favorite way to meditate; Christie Brinkley's secrets to gardening; and Shannon Elizabeth's beautiful Feng Shui house. Instead of buying dozens of self help books and women's magazines, you can find anything and everything you need to help you de-stress - and feel like a celebrity - in The Gurus' Guide To Serenity.
