The Art Of Creativity By Susie Pearl

The Art Of Creativity ‘The Art Of Creativity’ is the latest book by self help coach Susie Pearl.

After 20 years working with some of the most creative people on the planet, writer and business coach Susie Pearl has unearthed the habits of highly creative people and takes you on a journey to unlock your own inner stream of creativity. Over the course of this easy-to-follow guide, you will learn to take risks with your inner artist, ignore critics, release blocks and get into daily creative habits in order to build better projects, ideas and artistic collaborations, and unearth creative solutions and innovations.

One of my resolutions for this year was to write and complete a story. I’ve written 2 completed stories that unfortunately came to nothing and my desktop is littered with starts, middles and ends of ideas that transpired to nothing.

This helpful book which was a short and quirky read, was filled to the brim offering advice and insights on how to improve your creativity, harnessing it through mind mapping, journaling and meditation as well the simply basic needs of a healthy diet and good sleep.

I found this book to be a really useful tool and came at the right for me, as I’m struggling with my own writing, not the idea creation side but the finding time to right and the stepping out of my comfort zone and approaching people looking for feedback.

Sue helps address these issues in a friendly and relatable manner, offering guidance with useful exercises that encourages the reader to flex their creativity minds and to take a step further with their life desires. The book also includes useful tools and apps, that will help the reader with mind mapping, journaling and I found myself throughout the book noting down app names to use.

This vibrant book was a great information outlet and I think it will also be one that I’ll regularly be returning to for reference. With facts, exercises and achievable goals, ‘The Art of Creativity’ is a fantastic motivational tool for people who want to embark on a new project and are uncertain as to where to begin.

You can buy ‘The Art Of Creativity’ from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.

In How to Grow Up, she dispenses all the emotional and practical advice you need to negotiate a difficult decade.

Daisy Buchanan is a columnist and features writers for ‘The Guardian’ newspaper and her witty anecdotes about her life and her journey has resulted in the release of her self book, ‘How To Be A Grown Up’.

When it comes to self help and lifestyle bibles, our bookshelves are bursting with them as every week a new one comes offering inspiration and advice, they are the type of books that I don’t really bother with, as I’m kinda from the school of thinking, of making it up as I go along. Although last year, I did read Vicky Pattison’s book and I found it quite informative and useful, as I read it at a changing point in my life so some of the tips were beneficial.

I read this book over the Christmas period and with its bright pink cover, this book brightens up any bookcase.

The book is divided into chapters with stories and tips ranging from how to be confident, how to handles various emotions as well as deal with relationships with friends and partners. With each tip, there is a story from Daisy’s life, how she dealt with the problem, what she has learnt from it and tips for going forward.

Daisy’s tales of drama, with life, emotions and issues, provides comfort to us all, and provide us with the reassurance that we’re not alone with our problems in life. One useful tip that I did discover that after so many years on this planet, that I’m been washing my hair wrong for years, so that was quite an eye opener.

I found this book to a witty and frank collection of stories, that tell honestly of life experiences. Wise and fun, ‘How To Be A Grown Up’ is a heartening narrative, that provides supports that no matter the social or personal drama in life, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

You can pre-order How to Be a Grown Up from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 6th April 2017.
