Sometimes managing stress and achieving a healthy balance in life isn't as simple as the familiar adage wants us to think: “If life throws you lemons, make lemonade.” Everyone needs a cache of tools at their disposal to combat those times when life becomes overwhelming. This new wellness book from Dion Lucas does just that. Learn about how time for yourself, adequate rest, and even having someone to talk to can help you live better, live happier, and to STOP RUNNING AWAY from challenges and stress. Hopefully, after reading this book, you will have the tools to be able to enjoy life more fully and to BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED.
