Fit for Joy: The Healing Power of Being You

Fit for Joy: The Healing Power of Being You by Valeria Teles
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is about healing and health in a holistic pursuit: treating both body and mind. The book is broken into three main categories with a two-part conclusion and aims to inspire readers via a reflective journal approach from the author’s perspective of their own life. Each short reflection and small anecdote connect to the larger tapestry of what Valeria coins “the healing power of being you.” It’s an impressive work for the author given her traumatic past and is a testament to the power of what her book possesses.

As a personal side-note, I had the opportunity to Skype with Valeria the other day as an interview for her podcast. She focuses and truly embraces holistic health and positive self image. These terms aren’t just hashtags or marketing slang for her but rather something she truly engages and supports.

What you’ll find in this book is a voice to connect with. To laugh with. Cry with. Endure with. Whether or not this book impacts you is based on the condition of your heart when you read it. Whether or not this book changes you…even more so. But what about teaching you? This book is about fitness, but it is about joy ever the more so. It is about finding the fit by embracing and growing the joy. So, if you are looking for a book to radically change your health, this book can be it…if you let it.
