About the Book

This is a book about joy and how to get it and keep it in our lives. It is all simpler than we are making it out to be, meaning living in our bodies. It’s the small steps we take, day in and day out, that make a huge difference. That’s what creates lasting change and transformation at any age. We just need to take them. Presented here are real-life stories of people who use motivational techniques, such as focused breathing and stretching on the foam roller, that help them move more easily and allow them to feel better in their bodies and ultimately connect to the joy in their lives.
