How to edit the unnecessary and excessive from your life to create a healthier, happier you.
Get Real is a guide to self-awareness and self-acceptance for anyone who is exhausted, confused - or just bored - and wants to learn how to embrace their strengths, accept their imperfections and authentically edit their way to a happier, healthier life.
Get Real will help you...
Know yourself: understand your goals, limits and relationships
Grow yourself: nurture your worth, confidence and dreams
Show yourself: dare to be real and trust your instincts
Slow yourself: choose peace and joy over competition and drama
In order to write a happier story, you need to take control and become the editor of your most important work - YOU! Get Real will allow you to identify what you want more or less of in your life, who you need more or less of in your social circle, and the mental and physical health tools that will benefit you most. It will remind you that it is your choice whether you say yes or no, talk loudly or listen quietly, engage with your extroverted or introverted side, or deviate from what is expected of you.
Throughout the book, Sarah Ivens elevates her research and ideas with the personal, painful lessons she has had to learn about herself - how she finally accepted it wasn't her fault her birth father abandoned her when she was a child; empowered herself to stop feeling guilty when her body wouldn't stay pregnant; worked hard to find the lessons in failing friendships, and why she turned down a $1million job offer because she knew money and attention wouldn't make her truly happy or be good for her mental health.
This, along with many more self-healing techniques, facts and actionable advice, is why Get Real will allow you to be you - because everyone else really is taken!
