Currently working this as I recover from a serious illness and medical injury. It is helping me navigate a difficult time in my life where I am struggling daily. I am grateful to have this workbook to help me find peace, joy, and realize everything will pass.
This is a lovely workbook that hits all the marks for me as a self-help and personal development tool. It's calming visuals and separate sections for different needs is genius and well thought out. Highly recommend.
I love this! It was beautifully written and really made me think about things in order to find peace! It’s though provoking. Highly recommend!
Beautifully illustrated. really calming, and a gorgeous book. Highly recommend.
Thank you to the publisher and to NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This nifty book is well designed and user friendly, with lots of helpful exercises to help you find some peace. This has been very thoughtfully put together, and while I haven't tried all the exercises yet, the ones I've tried have been rewarding (not mentioning which I've tried, don't want to influence anyone else's choices). Will this book cure your every ill? Probably not, but it will help you connect to some of that sweet, elusive peace we all crave.
I thought this book was brilliant and really helpful, I would definitely recommend it. I liked how interactive it was in helping me.
Thank you NetGalley for my complimentary copy in return for my honest review.
I loved how this journal was set up. There’s different ways to work through this book. I’ve chosen straight through and I’m glad I did.
This is a really beautiful book aesthetically - the cover and page design are beautiful and the illustrations are fantastic. The information and prompts were organized and laid out very well and flowed between sections excellently. With that being said - this isn't exactly different than any of the other dozens of mindfulness workbooks saturating the market currently. What really sets it apart is the aesthetic design, and the sections being broken up by states of mindfulness, rather than focusing on daily or weekly tasks. Overall, it would make a nice addition to a self-care routine, and would fit anyone who needs help managing their stress or emotions.
As I truly enjoyed 2 previous workbooks from "Find Your...", I had really high hopes for "Find Your Peace". Unfortunately, this book feels incoherent and all over the place. The exercises seem quite random, despite being organised in themed sections. It's almost like Kiky Ely decided to combine buzzword practices of mindfulness, Ikigai and manifesting, and decided they'll work together... somehow? But they truly don't.
I think what made this workbook hard to interact with, were the visualisation and meditation exercises that don't work as well when they're solely text-based. This type of content works way better with audio format.
Nevertheless, "Find Your Peace" is still visually beautiful workbook and I loved the colours and the overall design.
Loved this! Definitely helps you to better realize and overcome the stress that the outside world brings to your life.
A great little mindfulness workbook that would probably be best purchased as a physical copy so you can highlight, take notes, and fill in activities. The artwork throughout is whimsical and very zen. Unlike other mindfulness workbooks I have completed which were divided into weekly activities, this one is separated into five states of mindfulness: Moving, Thinking, Knowing, Doing, and Dreaming. While it's not a long-term solution to remaining stress-free and less anxious, it does remind the reader to stay present in the current moment. I think the design and illustrations are the highlight of the book!
Thanks to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group-Wellfleet Press for the ARC.
The concepts and practices presented in this book are good, but probably better suited to folks who are looking to start their journey with mindfulness or who don't plan on using mindfulness tools to confront serious mental health issues. There were a few exercise that I quite enjoyed, but some felt a little too hokey for my taste. That being said, everyone is different so the wide variety allows this book to appeal to a wider audience. The biggest downside to this book was that I felt there was a lack of depth to some of the activities. They felt very surface level.
The Find Your Peace Workbook is a true gem that provides information on how to improve your physical and mental health. This workbook is divided into 5 different sections: moving, thinking, knowing, doing, and dreaming. As explained by the author, there is no “right way” to move through this workbook. Within each of the 5 sections of the workbook, there are exercises to complete. Some of the exercises in the moving section included the following: connecting to your body, mirror movements, stretching and there are many more. The book was beautiful, with colorful illustrations and lettering. I highly recommend this workbook. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the advance review copy in exchange for my honest review.
I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I had a hard time getting into this book, but once I did, I ended up enjoying it.
Find Your Peace by Kiki Ely is a workbook that took me by surprise. Mindfulness is such a big part of leading a better way of life, and now that I've found this book it has made that next step in my life that much easier to work on.
The workbook is divided into five sections, each focusing on different steps and stages regarding out mind and body. It outlines Moving, Thinking, Knowing, Doing, and Dreaming. The book has six examples, but not limited to, of how you could use the book. Two examples could be focusing on a certain section or working with a group.
I love the calm feeling of the pages, nothing to loud or distracting. There are sections for you to fill out and write down answers to questions.
I would recommend this book.
Thank you to Quarto Publishing Group – Wellfleet Press and Netgalley for an eARC of this book to read and review
This was a very interesting book to read I found parts of it very intriguing and I liked what you was teaching throughout but I feel like some of it was lacking and the layout felt unnatural. The pink colour into the book felt forced and usually walk back to not really my thing on this one felt like it was baby steps all the way through which kind of felt patronising
Thank you to Netgalley and Quarto Publishing Group - Wellfleet Press, for the ARC.
The book is visually beautiful. It focuses on grounding and mindfull techniques. I really enjoyed it utilizing some of them. I definitely recommend it for people who are interested in improving mindfulness and awareness.
I have read and gone through lots of books in this series/in this style now - and they are all fab, and I get a lot from them.
This book really focusses on mindfulness, and grounding and just getting into your body. All things that are important - however not entirely up my street - I still enjoyed it though.
Absolutely beautiful content that instantly makes you feel at peace.
So much so that a digital version doesn't seem to do it justice. I will be going out and buying physical copies of these books so I can really commit to the exercises and really see the illustrations etc.
Would highly recommend this book for anyone who is looking to take carw of themselves mentally. Its a great book for those moments where you really just need to take time out for yourself
Thank you Net Galley for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review
This is a truly lovely workbook both in terms of appearance and content.
It is a wonderful and practical introduction to mindfulness.
It is divided into sections on moving, thinking, knowing, doing and dreaming and includes many exercises to be completed in terms of physical, mental and written tasks.
The choice is entirely up to the reader whether to work through chronologically or choose certain tasks.
I found the variety of exercises wonderful and on the whole useful. I only really struggled with the part of having a conversation with myself in the mirror, but that's maybe just me that finds that hard!
The fact that it is a workbook to be completed makes it an interactive experience which I really enjoyed. I should point out I had a digital copy to review so could not compete the pages themselves but worked alongside with a notebook which was absolutely fine.
The illustrations were perhaps my favourite thing in the workbook, they are genuinely gorgeous.
Overall I would recommend this workbook to anyone who practices mindfulness or who wants to be guided into starting.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with a digital ARC through Netgalley in order that I provide an honest review.
