“Keep the mantra alive – baby steps are your golden ticket to lasting change.” ~Julie Reisler
So often, after finishing an enlightening book, I feel overwhelmed. I usuallly have a hard time deciding where to begin with my next, big step, or which new tool to use first.
The tagline for the book I’ve most recently read is “A Course in Miraculous Self-Discovery,” and that could not be more accurate.
In Get a PhD in You, by Julie Reisler, there are Q&A sections, pages to journal about what you just read, and activities to get up and complete as you work your way through the book. So, instead of reading through the full book, then deciding where to take action first, you are taking action while you read.
It Came at the Perfect Time
This is so much more than just a book.
Focusing on myself (emotionally and in my time-management) is one of my major focuses for 2017. So, I truly feel that this book came to me at the perfect time.
Each section of the book highlights an area that I feel is important for me to improve upon this year. Now that I have read the book in its entirety, I am so excited to go back through at the pace it was intended. I’d like to really focus on releasing my fears, re-framing my language to use positive words and dig into affirmations.
I’d also like to examine my relationship with food. It’s time for me to truly learn to view food as nourishment for my body, not as comfort.
The Author is Relatable
Julie is the type of woman who I strive to be. I feel like, by writing this book, she has handed me the manual to make it happen!
What I love about the way that Julie writes is her pure honesty. Throughout the book, she shares personal stories about her own struggles. Her struggles were primarily with food and her weight, divorce and feelings of inadequacy.
Each story is shared in such a way that even if you have never experienced what she is discussing, it relates completely to something else that you may have been through.
I’m a Better Person for Reading It
This book is written in a way that made me a better person simply for having read it. To go back and actively apply the tools provided to my own life will undoubtedly help me to become a genuinely more positive, helpful and contributing member of society.

Get a PhD in You is an enjoyable read at the same time as it forces you to take a hard look at yourself to make improvements. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to better understand herself, or for a guide to get them through as they work toward their goals.
