Living Healthy in the Real World: The Book!

It’s here at last. I’ve finally completed writing and editing my book (and re-writing, and re-editing, and more re-writing and re-editing after it was peer-reviewed), it’s been converted to PDF, and it is available for purchase – just in time for the holidays 🙂

What it is: Healthy Living How-To: Building Health and Happiness in All Areas of Life is a 123-page e-book, written by me.

Healthy Living How-To

What it’s all about: I wrote this book to cover health in all areas of life. Physical health (nutrition and fitness) is important, but it is not the only kind of health that we should be working to improve! My intention with this book was to show how we can live a healthy, happy lifestyle without too much fuss or hassle.

The layout: The book is divided up into eleven sections and covers a variety of different ways that we can improve health in our lives. Some of the sections are inspired by a couple of the mini-series that I’ve written here at Living Healthy, but the majority of it is entirely new.  The sections are as follows:

– Introduction (about the book and my personal journey toward living healthy);

– Learning How to Budget (financial advice from first-hand experience);

– Guide to Grocery Shopping (tips for shopping, reading nutrition labels, and the best grocery options out there);

– Cooking Tutorial (personal experiences, basic advice, and how to get comfortable cooking healthier fare in your own kitchen);

– Recipe Favourites (healthy, easy, delicious, and budget-friendly recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner);

– Lessons on Cleaning and Organizing (advice for how to keep your home a healthy, happy environment);

– Enjoying Exercise (identifying the best type of exercise for you and how to incorporate exercise into your lifestyle);

– Travelling How-To (what first-timers should know about travel, the type of travel to suit your personality, and things to remember when you’re away from home);

– Getting Back to Nature (treating the environment well, trying out camping and getting to know yourself a little bit better);

– Putting it All Together (how to meld every aspect of your life together so that you can live healthy and happy in all areas of life);

– Resources and Suggested Reading (a few recommended blogs, such as The Great Fitness Experiment and Fit to the Finish, as well as excellent healthy living books that you can benefit from).

Who can benefit from it: Everyone can make good use of this book! It is especially helpful for anyone starting out on a new journey, whether it’s buying your first home, going travelling, or getting in touch with nature. With the holidays just around the corner, you can get this book as a gift for a young person in your life 🙂

Price: $10.00. I’ve done some research and it seems as though the going price for e-books is $10.00 on Amazon. I think it’s a reasonable price (less than $1 per 10 pages).

    Congrats on finishing your book! That is a lot of writing. If you haven’t, you should consider having it for sale on Amazon for the Kindle. I don’t think it cost anything to have an ebook for sale on Amazon, just that you might have to do something with the file format.
