Title: The Joy Plan
Author: Kaia Roman
As a mother, a wife, and a businesswoman, Kaia Roman always had a plan. But when her biggest plan, the business she co-founded, collapsed, Kaia found herself crushed by depression. And what felt even worse was that, with a husband and two kids relying on her to get out of bed, she didn’t have a plan to move forward.
Determined to turn her life around and put her ingrained habits of stress and anxiety behind her, Kaia decided to put everything else on hold and dedicate thirty days to the singular pursuit of joy. The results were astonishing—and lasted much longer than the initial month-long project.
In this uplifting and eye-opening memoir, Kaia uses her business savvy to create a concrete Joy Plan get back on her feet fast. Using scientific research on hormones, neurotransmitters, and mindfulness, along with the daily dedication to creating a more joyful existence, Kaia teaches readers how to move past temporary happiness and succeed in creating joy that lasts.
Complete with advice, exercises, and key takeaways, The Joy Plan is Kaia’s step-by-step guide to how she, and everyone else, can ditch the negative and plan for the joy in their lives.
Received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review
I tend to avoid books like this, and admittedly it was because I thought they might be silly or preachy, and that was likely the cynic in me that doesn’t want to trust.
This book, in which Kaia Roman so eloquently and truthfully shares some of the struggles she has gone through in life, and how she decided to change her outlook made me realize how much I need to change myself.
The Joy Plan is something that excites me, and is something I look forward to trying for myself. I am so grateful to be given the opportunity to read this book that has inspired me so. I would recommend it to anyone who is ready and willing to let joy into their lives.
