This summer we will be sharing information about a great new book for teenage girls - called GirlForce: A Way of Life For Young Women by Nikki Goldstein. Are you a teenage girl or is there a special teen girl in your life? I think most of us remember all the difficult things about being a teen girl.
Would you have enjoyed a book that helped you understand why you were so different from other girls and how to deal with those differences? I would have enjoyed that. I was 6'1 before I turned 13 and had braces throughout my teen years - those were just the most obvious things I dealt with in my teens. What did you deal with while you were a teen?
About GirlForce: A Way of Life For Young Women
Author Nikki Goldstein has worked as a beauty editor for over ten years, and wanted to develop a way to counter the negative images and messages she often found in the media. Nikki discovered Ayurveda (pronounced ‘eye-ur-veed-dah”)after a long illness, and during her recovery a friend suggested looking yoga and meditation. At first a skeptic, Nikki found that she was becoming and feeling stronger and her stress levels were down. Most of all, she was learning about her body and what it needed to feel great. Nikki wants to spread the word about the power of being in tune with your inner self, and to inspire girls to celebrate themselves just the way they are. Empower your body, mind and sprit with GirlForce, and the world is yours for the taking.
Based on the ancient Indian system known as Ayurveda (pronounced "eye-ur-vee-dah"), everyone has a unique body type made up of the elements Air, Fire and Earth which give you your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual characteristics. Each body type has different needs and desires in order to feel balanced. This is not a diet or weight loss book, but a way of feeling great about yourself, for who you are. GirlForce offers practical, wise and balanced tools to improve health, well-being, body image and relationships.
