The Zen Holiday Gift Guide – Gifts For Those That Love to Transcend…
I have been following the wisdom of TinyBuddha.com for some time now, and was thrilled when I saw this book!
Tiny Buddha’s 365 Days of Tiny Love Challenges is a simple guide to help readers pursue happy, connected lives and bring greater love into the world.
Each week begins with an inspirational message written by members of the TinyBuddha.com online community, followed by seven days of short challenges that focus on self-love, giving and receiving love in relationships and friendships, and spreading love in the world, such as:
- Write a list of three things you appreciate about yourself and place it somewhere in your home where you’ll frequently see it throughout the day
- Compliment someone who serves you in some way (for example, a waiter, barista, or bus driver) on how well they do their job
- Keep an eye out for someone who looks sad—a friend, coworker, or even stranger—and say something that might make them laugh or smile.
By using the book each day throughout the year, readers will learn to develop closer bonds in relationships, let go of anger and bitterness, better understand themselves and their loved ones, and turn strangers into friends.

We have all been given the gift of breathing. The Daily Breath is geared toward using this blessing in all its magnificent ways.
Scott Morofsky, author of Wellativity: In-Powering Wellness Through Communication, emphasizes in his second book that your physical health, spiritual connection, mental clarity, and overall well-being are just some of the areas in which you’ll receive great benefits when you read this book daily.
The text constantly brings you back to conscious breathing through the use of several techniques. Practical breathing exercises, references to life experiences, prayer, fitness tips, and recovery applications are at the core of these pages.
Most people will agree that their breathing is often less than full and easy. This damaging condition, to a large degree, has been embedded within us. However, The Daily Breath provides a method for us to easily recondition our breathing by simply reading the passages on a regular basis. This ultimately improves our oxygen levels, which support all functions in our bodies.
With absolute certainty you will transform your life one breath at a time! So Breathe It.
