Your Hidden Riches by Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood
Your Hidden Riches – Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood
Do you have any rituals you consistently practice in your daily life?
Janet Bray Attwood and her husband Chris argue that they are the secret to uncovering your hidden riches and creating a life of meaning and purpose in their latest book, Your Hidden Riches.
I was fortunate enough to receive a complimentary copy of the book through the Blogging for Books program and that’s why I’m blogging about it today 🙂
I chose this book, because I personally believe that my exercise ritual is a very big part of what helps me run a successful business. Believe….or am obsessed you might say, as I did just create a whole interview series on the topic!
However, that’s the only REAL, consistent ritual I have had in my life and with the New Year on the horizon I thought this book would be a great fit.
How did it measure up to my expectations?
While I found the book to be a little over the top or “woo-wooy” at times, there were enough practical tips to keep me reading. I’ve been really trying to focus on slowing down in my own life , living in the moment, and creating a life of meaning and purpose.
After reading Janet and Chris’s book, I’ve definitely bought into the fact the rituals beyond my exercise routine can lead to a more fulfilling life.
This revelation definitely made me wonder what things were like in a simpler time and the true value of many of the rituals we no longer think are relevant in our daily lives. It was interesting to think that earlier generations were actually more advanced in this way!
The book includes rituals to target the following areas:
-Diet, Health, and Beauty
-Closer Family Bonds
There is definitely a ritual for everyone!
One of my favorite parts of the book was definitely the Appendix, which makes it easy to find different rituals that were discussed throughout the book. I haven’t really has a chance to test the rituals out just yet, so I can’t attest to the true power of these rituals. However, I am excited to try them.
Throughout the book you’ll find links to several websites. Some are useful, many are just a ploy to get you to buy another program. I guess I can’t fault the Attwoods as this is pretty common practice these days. Unfortunately, looking at some of these sites and getting on their e-mail list proved annoying as it felt very salesy. I’m sure it resonates with some people, but it was a turn off for me.
All in all, I would recommend the book if you are looking to see how adding rituals and routines can impact your day-to-day life in subtle ways that ultimately can help you create a life of meaning and purpose.
If you’re not into woo-woo books, however, you might not enjoy this one.
