No matter how you feel right now, Ariane Resnick believes you CAN feel better

“From the science behind gratitude to breathing exercises, this book is a valuable tool for all who seek better health.” —Terry Wahls, MD, author of The Wahls Protocol

Resnick spent half a decade seriously sick. Upon returning to health, she resolved to help others do the same. How to Be Well When You’re Not is a guide to facilitating the healing capabilities of your body. It’s all about the wellness mindset: the belief that you can feel better. When you believe you have the power to recover, you feel less stressed. You experience a sense of hope. You operate from a vantage point that your entire life cannot be summed up by your illness, that there is far more to you. And, according to research, your chances of recovery increase.

This is a comprehensive guide for anyone who would like a boost in attitude and well-being. Whether you’re dealing with a chronic illness, occasional discomfort, or feeling the effects of aging, Resnick provides emotional coping strategies, writing exercises, physical practices, and soothing, restorative recipes to help you thrive. These are the tools to find hope and happiness despite physical challenges.

great work from Ariane Resnick! She has a unique way of pulling from her

while still informative for the most knowledgeable of health care
