Do you feel unhappy with the life you lead? Are you stuck in the wrong job or relationship, the same old cycles, and in need of a better balance? Or perhaps you feel you’re doing ok, but only ok. Something’s missing. If so, it’s time to let Jody Shield into your life.
Jody is well known to London’s highest fliers as the must-see consultant on health and wellbeing. Having worked in advertising for ten years – and reached burnout in her own life – she is now committed to helping others overcome stress, anxiety and the fear of change. Jody helps her clients find the true core of their problems, and lasting solutions.
Now Jody is sharing her pioneering techniques in her first book. LifeTonic offers an alternative path to finding what you need to live to your full potential.
Jody guides you carefully through her powerful self-help tools and ‘tonics’ to help you overcome negativity and fear. You will learn how meditation – easily integrated into your daily life – can change the way you think, even if you’ve never tried it before.
Reading LifeTonic is an empowering experience; a combination of mindfulness, meditation and healing that delves deep to discover where you want to be, and what’s stopping you getting there. This is a book which has the power to give you energy and purpose.
Jody says: “I want to bring modern healing and remedies to people feeling stuck and heavy in life. I’m excited because I get to go on the journey with my reader and help them create a brighter, richer and more exciting future. My intention is to help awaken and light up everyone who reads the book, so they really love their life.”
