My Review:

Self help and inspirational books are not normally my style. I find that most of the advice in most self help books does not apply to me or is given in such an uppity manner that I don’t follow just to spite the author. This is not the case with Victoria Moran’s Living a Charmed Life. She gives advice in such a friendly and engaging manner that it is difficult to disregard her.

There is so much useful advice in Living a Charmed Life that I think anyone can find something that can apply to them. For me, it was raw foods. It was only a small passage and easy to overlook but not for me. After I read it, I had the most intense craving for a good salad. At midnight this is most inconvenient. I decided to try the Live Till Five approach for a few weeks. So far, it has been great. I feel more energetic and healthier. I also am not getting hungry so often. I had never thought of a raw diet as something that would work for me but I now realize it might be perfect. I might do it full time. I am going to Borders to get some recipe books today.  I also followed Moran’s advice about progressively waking up earlier. So far, it has not been working so well. I got up at 12pm today. So sad. I might have to work on this a little more. Maybe get a louder alarm clock. Of course, some of the tips in Living a Charmed Life will not work for me. Such as giving up caffeine. I would be a walking zombie without three or four cups of coffee a day. I don’t even want to think of the terrible headache I would get if I tried to stop.

Living a Charmed Life is a wonderful self-help book for women that can be useful to any woman. I can guarantee that almost every woman will find something that can be useful for them.
