Spotlight: 150 Brilliant Ideas to keep Young Minds Fit & Fine by Neeraa Maini Srivastav

Greetings People !
I am glad these days we are talking about a lot of issues openly. May it be body shaming or mental health or abuse. All issues need to be discussed, increase awareness about it and maybe find a permanent solution to it.

Here is Author Neeraa's 4th book about 'wellness' for the young minds:



Blurb:

In a world with increasing stress, lifestyle imbalance, new age challenges and health hazards, 'wellness' is the new God everyone's seeking. While adults have infinite choices and options to course-correct paths, the young adults, though have increasing incidences of mental and physical health challenges, have little or almost no aids to holistic health and wellness. With increasing juvenile obesity and depression hitting the teens, there is a dire need to address the same. 

The book is based on addressing just that in a contemporary, light-hearted fashion. Split into 3 sections: Mind, Body and Spirit, the book offers truths in each category that seed the idea of wellness in a fun and engaging way. What better than a ready reckoner for young adults to get by their highly stressful daily lives in a more meaningful, healthier and stimulating manner. A companion of sorts, the book aims at delivering well-being to the troubled young souls. "The reason why this book is close to my heart is because as a Life Skills Coach, I work extensively with teens as well as tweens. Doing so requires an understanding of their Mind, Body, Spirit. This is the area in which this wonderful book serves an important purpose. It offers an integrated, holistic approach to every aspect of young peoples' Wellness issues. Neera is an author whom I admire greatly. 

This exhaustive book is a much- needed compendium of critical information. I have no doubt it will meet huge success." - Ms Neelam Kumar (Life Skills Coach and Author)
