by Allie Hudson

The Mindset Accountability Journal: 40 Days to a New You  by Allie Hudson

The Mindset Accountability Journal: 40 Days to a New You by Allie Hudson is currently on tour with Reading Addiction Book Tours. The tour stops here today for my review and an excerpt. Please be sure to visit the other tour stops as well.


Description
Are you stuck in a life you want to be different, but have no idea where to start?
The Mindset Accountability Journal will jump-start you to a life you can enjoy living every day. By establishing incremental daily habits, you will embark on a path to gratitude, self-growth, and fulfillment. This journal will help you:
- Discover who you were meant to be
- Shift your focus to what is good and wonderful in your life
- Create an attitude of mindset growth
You will never regret taking charge of your life and living with gratitude. The journey is rewarding and challenging. It takes only 30 minutes each day to make progress with your future, one day at a time.
A portion of the book's proceeds will support BridgeHope, whose efforts enable survivors of exploitation and trafficking to THRIVE!


Excerpt
Tips for Journaling
Write EVERY DAY, even if it is just a small response or a quick idea. Go back and refine ideas that you want to expand on later.
Write in the morning before your mind is filled with the daily distractions.
Write slowly at a speed that gives you time to think as you write.
Choose a writing utensil that is easy to write with and that you like to use.
Look back and read some of your previous entries and continue or refine some of your writings.
Use the things you learn about yourself from your journal to change your daily life.

Praise for the Book
“… this is a good-looking journal, written by a writer who cares about the happiness and well-being of her readers. The beauty of this book is the genuine enthusiasm and positive attitude emanating from the author. Her signature of caring, her profound belief in the potential of her readers, and the sense of dignity in her writing will certainly lead readers to personal success if they follow this attractive and well-laid- out journal for forty days.” ~ Surfs Up Writers’ Bookshelves

My Review
I received this book in return for an honest review.


By Lynda Dickson
The Mindset Accountability Journal is described as “a 40-day journey to becoming your truest self by achieving a Mindset of Gratitude”. You will be asked to commit to spending 30 minutes “every day for the next 40 days focusing on and developing your inner person” and, further, to “use the things you learn about yourself from your journal to change your daily life.”
This journal has a gorgeous cover, which is reason enough to buy it! Each day there is space to write down five things that you are grateful for, followed by daily encouragement, a reminder to read for thirty minutes, space to write one takeaway from your reading, an inspirational quote by a famous person, and space to write an action for mindset change. In addition, the author provides a little extra encouragement every 10 days and finishes with a list of suggested resources for your daily mindset and accountability reading.
There are a few minor editing errors, which are not really acceptable given the small amount of writing therein. The most glaring error is that, in the introduction, the author asks us to read for 15 minutes each day, while the journal itself asks us to read for at least 30 minutes each day.
Nevertheless, today is a great day to start the rest of your life. So, what are you waiting for?

About the Author
Allie Hudson
Allie Hudson grew up in LaGrange, Ohio, and attended Moody Bible Institute, studying education. In 1991, she married Larry Sellers, who passed away of a heart attack in May 2009. In 2010, she married Michael Hudson who passed away of cancer just three years later. In January 2012, Allie lost her corporate job of 20 years because of downsizing in the newspaper business. Throughout this five-year period of three major losses, the only way she survived was to focus on God and trust that He had a plan for her life. After struggling to maintain a daily consistent practice of growth and gratitude, she began a 40-day challenge to practice gratitude and personal growth. That journey taught her the need to help other people develop a daily practice of thankfulness and inspired her to share The Mindset Accountability Journal with the world.

Hi, I'm Fyp,

My Review


By Lynda Dickson
The cute rhyming text introduces us to Fyp (short for “Finding Your Path”), a boy who is about to start school. He shares his reassuring message with his young readers that starting school is nothing to worry about. He shows them how to prepare for their first day, what they’ll need to take with them, what they’ll learn, the games they’ll play, how the day is structured, and even how to interact with teachers and other children.
The author has a degree in psychology, and it sure shows. She imbues this book with constant reassurances and positive messages to give young children the confidence they need to try something new.
Full of bright and colourful illustrations throughout, this book is sure to appeal to your little ones. What a great start to their school life!

Description
Here, you’ll learn all about intermittent fasting, get insights as to how you can get started and how to go about the practice. This resource will teach you all about shifting your mindset to achieve a healthier body by pursuing a shift, not simply in the types of food that you eat but the time at which you consume them.
With intermittent fasting, do know that it’s more about shifting your eating patterns. And because there are no strict rules as to which food to eat and avoid, it’s something that you can easily integrate into your lifestyle and sustain over a longer course of time.
For now, I advise you to read and learn more about it. Establish a strong foundation as to what the concept is and then work your way towards developing a practice that’s most suited to your lifestyle.

Excerpt
Introduction: What to Expect from This Book
Are you one of those people who’s had it with unreliable and unrealistic diet trends? Maybe it’s time to shift your focus towards something that’s actually healthier for your body and more sustainable to boot.
In line with this, I’d like to thank you for downloading this book entitled Intermittent Fasting: An Overview - What You Need to Know About Efficient and Effective Time-Managed Eating Habits.
Here, you’ll learn all about intermittent fasting, get insights as to how you can get started and how to go about the practice. This resource will teach you all about shifting your mindset to achieve a healthier body by pursuing a shift, not simply in the types of food that you eat but the time at which you consume them.

Given that there’s no one perfect method for everyone, you have the chance to customize your plan based on what you need, what you can do for now, and how much exercise you can fit into your current schedule. Over time, you can alter your intermittent fasting habits but there’s no pressure to hurry.
I hope you learn a lot from this overview and that you’re influenced and encouraged to give intermittent fasting a try.
