This book, You First; Journal Your Way to Your Best Life, by Lea Michele, is presented in four sections: You, Ambition, Relationships, and Happiness. Each section has three parts, set up with open ended questions designed to let you explore the sections. There are lots of blank pages (with lines) for you to write in.
Perhaps if I was younger this book would have more impact for me. But, I am 61 years old, and much of this stuff is just unrelatable for me.
I found the first part, with emphasis on fitness, diet/nutrition, rather boring, as I'm just not into listing all the foods I eat over a couple of weeks time. Nor am I interested in journaling my exercise routine for weeks. Being on a fixed income, I am unable to really purchase the best of foods for myself. Being disabled, I am unable to exercise to any great degree. So, the first part of the book was left essentially blank.
It may be a worthwhile book for people in their 20's and 30's, but if you're senior, I would say don't waste your time.
The questions asked did not really inspire me to write a whole page of answers.
I think a blank journal is more worthwhile, for me, at least.
There is a half dust-jacket on the book... taking it off reveals a nicely designed front cover sans the author's face-shot, making it seem more like a personal journal.
If you feel a need to map out your life and its possibilities, then this book may benefit you.
I received this book from Blogging for Books, in exchange for an honest review.
