It’s time to Get up! My second book is finally published and I can’t believe it’s finally here!
It’s been two years of writing and re-writing. Editing, and editing again, and I’ve loved every minute of it while I worked alongside David Newton and Lisa Borden from Borden Communications and The Akira Concept. Get Up is a true collaboration.
The teenage years are full of wonder and excitement. They are also full of uncomfortable growth and an incredible amount of change that can leave us feeling lost and alone. This is why we collaborated to write Get Up – a book filled with meaningful short stories, emotional lessons, functional exercises, and mentor memos to help us “get up” and thrive.
I have opened my “vault” of stories from my very own school of life. While Movement Therapist, David Newton, has created perfectly paired exercises to follow.
So many of the questions we have as youth are answered and explored in Get Up. It is a fun, simple, yet thought-provoking read.
There are also over 60 mentors who have contributed thoughtful advice to the reader reflecting on what advice they would give to their teenage self. Nothing preachy, very inspiring, and even “instagrammable”! Watch out for future blogs!
Although Get Up isn’t a journal, each chapter has a special space for notes, reminding the reader to “connect the thoughts”.
Get Up is recommended for ages 11 and up.
Life may bring challenges, but the Get Up reader will quickly learn that they are not alone – that they can get through and that they will “get up.”
A Few Thoughts To Share…
“Each story can be related to any teen across the globe with a nod, a smile, and an appreciation of what resiliency really is.” Sharon Neiss Arbess.
“Stories affect us physically, which leads us to encourage the reader to Get Up! and do something physical after reading, therefore making the story more impactful and meaningful.” David Newton (@davidnewtonWellness)
“Filled with fun, wise, and therapeutic advice, brought to life through anecdotes, ways to keep moving, and meaningful thoughts from mentors, Get Up is like a warm hug offering easy and appealing ways to help youth to make better decisions, improve sense of self-worth, and feel good in today’s world.” Lisa Borden (@LisaBorden)
