How meditation can help you find your happiest weight: a book review

By Amy Height.

Weight loss is not something we generally associate with slowing down; at least, I didn’t until quite recently. While I disagree with many that weight loss and weight maintenance needs to be difficult, I’ve always thought about it as being dependent on movement and effort. I knew that it doesn’t have to be challenging, but I hadn’t quite wrapped my head around the idea that it could be accomplished by slowing down.

Then I read Tiffany Cruikshank’s Meditate Your Weight.

Oh boy. Was I wrong.

Let me preface this by saying that I’m a huge neuroscience geek: I find brain and biopsychology and the physical mechanisms by which we feel, experience and act to be entirely fascinating. Combine these with holistic wellness and practical lifestyle suggestions for feeling your best? Where has this book been all my life?? I write about it here to share with you an awesome, interesting resource, whether you’re looking to change your weight, feel better in your body, calm the hell down or anything in between.
