#1 The Fitness Mindset by Brian Keane

The Fitness Mindset by Brian Keane
Who recommended this book?
This was recommended by Koen van Emden from Home Fitness Journey.

Overcoming insecurity for me was all about getting in shape. A few years ago, I was feeling insecure about my weight. In short, I was eating a lot of junk food, and working out wasn’t on top of my to-do list.

Then I read; ‘The Fitness Mindset’ – by Brian Keane. This book helped me to adopt a ‘fitness mindset.’ Changing my mindset has helped me to change my behavior.

After reading the book, I slowly started to; eat the right foods, workout more consistently, and build better habits in general. So the book was the starting point of my fitness journey.

Don’t get me wrong. The book doesn’t provide a quick fix. Although The Fitness Mindset can help a lot to change your view on health and fitness, which in turn has helped me to overcome my self-doubt and feel confident again.

Learn about the Soul Structure and how you can use it to be aware of yourself and to perform to the best of your ability without negativity or rejection. See the traps and avoid them.

Eventually, I had all the intellectual answers. I tried desperately to apply this knowledge in my professional and family lives. I pointed the error of my ways to those who sought my counsel. Many were glad to receive my advice, but those closest to me had deaf ears. My pain and anger climaxed into a massive breakdown. I was dying. I, myself was droming in ‘The Rejection Syndrome.’ But now, I am back.

Who recommended this book?
This was recommended by Brenda Knight from Mango Publishing.

Depression and anxiety are topics that can be uncomfortable to talk about, but that doesn’t mean they should be avoided. If anything, it means we need to be more aware and have more conversations about them. With the help of her adorable illustrations, art blogger Kate Allan (known through her remarkably popular Tumblr blog as The Latest Kate) urges us to be mindful of our mentality.

Allan, who suffers from anxiety and depression herself, understands what it’s like to deal with feelings that are difficult to fight through. In this book, she provides the personal kind of encouragement that she herself needs to hear. These encouraging words, along with writing prompts, can help readers sort through and express their feelings. Kate Allan’s creative journal meets us where we are―in the midst of the feelings that say we’re not enough, we can’t handle this life, we won’t make it. Her whimsical art and simple words lift trampled spirits and combat thoughts that lead us to believe our weirdness makes us weak. Young and old, we are encouraged to love ourselves exactly as we are.

When you have anxiety of depression, you can feel deeply alone. You can feel like you’re the only person on the planet who’s struggling with weird worries (which won’t go away), who can’t go grocery shopping without getting sweaty and panicked, who fears everything.

When we feel this way, one of the greatest gifts we can receive is knowing that there’s someone out there walking a similar path, someone who understands the sorrow, the struggles, the symptoms, the hardships. Someone we can relate to, someone who shares their story, with vulnerability and without filters.

With You Can Do All Things, Kate Allan has given us such a gift. In You Can Do All Things, Kate shares her struggles with anxiety and depression, which started when she was just a child. Through her honest words, uplifting illustrations, and actionable suggestions, Kate also encourages us to keep trying and to keep going.
