Book Details

Simple, Effective Stress Reducing Tools for Work/Life Balance

“Life is a race marked by a start and a finish. It is what we learn during the race, and how we apply it, that determines whether our participation has had particular value. If we learn from each success, and each failure, and improve ourselves through this process, then, at the end, we will have fulfilled our potential and performed well.”
– Ferdinand Anton Ernst Porsche, Austrian technical automobile designer and automaker-entrepreneur

Heart disease is the #1 killer of women—and yet, the deeper causes are often overlooked or dismissed. Linda Penkala’s own momentous experience with heart disease led her to create the Wise Heart Health program. Drawing on a vast wealth of knowledge from her experience as a massage therapist, Linda generously shares the life lessons she has learned from helping clients to sink joyfully into relaxation on the massage table. She also shares powerful analogies from her years of riding racehorses, illuminating parallels between an extraordinarily demanding sport and the dangerous pace and speed of women’s lives. With holistic suggestions for self-care ranging from essential oils to simple techniques to enhance deep sleep, Linda’s balanced approach will leave you feeling positive and hopeful. If you’re ready to become educated and empowered to enhance your quality of life, this book is the compass you need to navigate the rocky terrain of modern life and arrive at the garden of tranquility and inner peace.
