Only Nuns Change Habits Overnight by Karen Scalf Linamen
I like instant change. In fact, friends who know me well can vouch that when I want change, I usually grab some scissors and start cutting on my hair. Reading Karen Scalf Linamen's book, Only Nuns Change Habits Overnight, makes more sense than grabbing the scissors. This little book should be read with a pen in hand so you can underline, jot notes to yourself, and smiley faces. Linamen knows how to encourage. Of course, we've all heard her common sense advice, probably more than once, but there's something about her voice, her tone, that makes us want to succeed this time.
This book is the perfect New Year's gift to yourself. Linamen's 52 ideas can work no matter what you want to change. Only Nuns Change Habits Overnight is easy to read, and a fun one.
Only Nuns Change Habits Overnight
Every woman longs for change in some area of her life. Unfortunately, fear, fatigue, adversity, heartbreak, past failures, and even the choices of other people get in the way and make lasting change seem out of reach. Having been there herself, Karen Linamen knows exactly how to take readers from where they are to where they want to be.
In Only Nuns Change Habits Overnight, she examines 52 powerful actions readers can apply to any change they long to embrace. Her insights apply to career, finances, personal health and fitness, relationships, faith—in fact, every facet of a woman’s life. Blending laugh-out-loud humor and sage advice, Linamen shows readers the link between dissatisfaction and transformation, how to remodel habits, the little-known truth about procrastination, how to generate the energy they need to pursue the life they desire, how to benefit from options and resources they never dreamed they had, and much, much more!
