Book Description

April 7 1998
In Joan Lunden's Healthy Living, Joan shares her discovery of the mind-body connection and explains how an understanding this connection can help to promote better health -- physically and emotionally -- and create a feeling of overall satisfaction in life.

Joan Lunden explains, "Not that long ago I was unfit, unhealthy, and not at all happy about it.  Now I feel as alive and energetic as I ever have. Each of us can make a choice to turn our lives around."

Lunden talks about the difference between wanting one's life to change and actually taking action to make it happen. Readers will learn how to ride the waves of change instead of becoming overwhelmed by them. They will find out how to become witnesses to their own lives, able to take honest looks at themselves. They'll learn how their attitudes and outlooks have tremendous effects on how their bodies function and on how they react to the world around them.

Product Details


Product Description

From Amazon

Joan Lunden, familiar to all as a cohost of Good Morning America and author of Joan Lunden's Healthy Cooking, shares her lessons about feeling great in a stressed-out world. Using her own life as an example, Lunden emphasizes the necessity of eating right, exercising, and learning to relax in order to lead a happier life. Lunden knows stress: she went through a very public divorce while battling her weight and trying to balance her career with her home life, which includes raising her three independent-minded daughters.

This picture-laden book shows a new, trim, contented Lunden, and she doles out the sage guidance that got her there--things she's learned from the people in her life, including her mother, Deepak Chopra, her personal trainer, GMA's Nancy Snyderman, and meditation master Jon Kabat-Zinn.

This book is more for the novice who wants to lead a healthier lifestyle than for those already immersed in a workout program and knowledgeable about healthy diets. Occasionally the advice may seem a little sparse, and the methods pricey(Lunden and coauthor Laura Morton train for an expedition to the Grand Tetons by working out an exclusive New York gym), but Lunden's perky tone ("Tan fat looks better than white fat") can't help but inspire even the least-motivated of individuals to get off the couch and try to live a fuller life. --Jenny Brown

5.0 out of 5 stars So inspirational Jan. 30 2000
By Barbara
Format:Paperback
I have always admired Joan Lunden and followed her on GMA since the birth of her first child. She seemed to be pregnant everytime I was. First my daughter than son than another daughter were born around the same time as her children. I was going through a very low point in my life when I picked up her book in the library. I finished it in a day. I felt so uplifted and have been trying for a long time to make changes in my life also. I am just 50 and it's so hard to find the courage to do things different. My life has been in turmoil for about 5 years now and I have just started to get into inspirational readings and tapes. This book hit such a nerve and I am going to as a result of this read her other books. One of my things was getting back in shape and loosing 20 lbs that has been bothering me for years. I have confirmed my feelings of her being now my hero. I will not climb the titans but I sure will reach my goal of just feeling better about my self. Thank you Joan I have given birth with you, cried with you, laughed with you and this book makes me feel so good about my self again. Barbara

5.0 out of 5 stars Found the tapes inspirational and a great reminder! April 22 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
The information on the tapes is presented in a manner that is easy to listen to as I walk. I listened to the tapes for the first time at home and now I take them out with me as I walk. The reminders that are presented throughout the tapes are great! She does a great job of wrapping interesting stories around some basic facts which stress the importance of total fitness. I recommend it to anyone that wants to get focused on some basic approaches to a better life.

1.0 out of 5 stars Narcassitic Drivel Jan. 29 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
I have always been a fan of Joan Lunden, but this tape is nothing more than narcissistic musing of her path to growth supported by The Golden Gate Spa and a high dollar fitness club in New York
The tape contributed no new or practical knowledge which one could make use of on their own path to growth.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Really Great Read...and a Keeper!!! Oct. 26 2008
By Zhenya - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I recently had an opportunity to hear Joan Lunden deliver the keynote speech for the New Jersey Governor's Conference for Women held in Atlantic City. Her message was quite inspirational and real. Yes, she is a well-known national figure, however, she has experienced all of the trials and tribulations that everyday people like myself endure. After that, I obtained a copy of this book and found it to resonate the same sentiments I heard from the speakers' podium in February. Who doesn't want to be uplifted? Who doesn't want to feel inspired? Who doesn't want to take one step in a positive direction to change their life...and then another...and then another? If you have that goal in mind for yourself, I then suggest you read this book! Thanks, Joan.
