Joy Fixes for Weary Parents (New World Library, 2017) helps parents cultivate joy by making peace with life and identity changes, feeling grateful, doing what they love, staying grounded, and consciously feeding their most important relationships.
Many parents struggle with depression, anxiety, overwhelm, restlessness, or guilt. After having kids, couples often argue more or grow apart. Parents may have a hard time coping with fading friendships, financial pressures, changes in health, lack of sleep, lack of time for themselves, children’s behavior, or other challenges.
Joy Fixes helps parents build joy, or a deep down sense of peace and contentment, through daily experiences, relationships, perspectives, and habits. Whether parents are developing awesome relationships with loved ones, being good to themselves, or goofing off, being purposeful about joy has a huge effect on their quality of life.
Joy Fixes helps parents:
- notice and savor the joy, love, and grace around them;
- visualize what they want their lives and identities to be like
- be inspired to nurture themselves, forgive themselves, love themselves, laugh at themselves, and reward themselves;
- use mindfulness to stay in their “higher selves” or their “second consciousness;”
- deepen intuition; and
- strengthen relationships
