This book outlines the ten most powerful, life-enhancing behaviours that Martha Beck has found in years of research and practice. Clearly explained, with thought-provoking case studies from her life design practice, together with her trademark wit, The Joy Diet provides straightforward instructions for incorporating these behaviours into everyday life. By encouraging you to add the ten 'ingredients' of stillness, compassion, truth, desire, creativity, risk, play, treats, gratitude and rest to your daily routine, The Joy Diet shows you how to change the course of your life. In turn they will be empowered to find purpose, overcome obstacles, heal wounds and build dreams.
