The Simply Self-Wonderful Inner Workout Book

by Judy Slater


The longest relationship you will have in your life is the one with yourself. And at this point in your life, you may have a deep yearning for something better. You want to feel Simply Self-Wonderful, perhaps not all the time, but at least most of the time, and to know ways to get back to being Simply Self-Wonderful so you can live and flourish in the life you create for yourself.

Self-love isn’t always easy. There is no self-love destination. It’s an ongoing journey you take with yourself. Self-love doesn’t demand perfection; it encourages you to take one step at a time. It begins with the Self. That’s why the word Self is repeated in every attribute. That’s why there is a hyphen between the attribute and the Self. They are connected and inseparable if you want to truly flourish, love yourself, and your life.

In The Simply Self-Wonderful Inner Workout Book, you can learn to love yourself wholly through the 33 Self-Wonderfuls and 32 Self-Woundings. Each Self-Wonderful is the gift of being uniquely you that shines, and each Self-Wounding can be transformed into a gift of love.

With over 500 practices, The Simply Self-Wonderful Inner Workout Book offers you a chance to go deeper into learning to love all aspects of the Simply Self-Wonderful YOU!

Each Self-Wonderful and Self-Wounding has a unique mandala to color, expanded definitions, affirmations, quotes, and activities in five focus areas known as MEPSS: Mental, Emotional, Physical, Social, and Spiritual. With The Simply Self-Wonderful Inner Workout Book you will join a myriad of others who yearn for a better self, a better life, a better world to love with all their hearts, and celebrate being Simply Self-Wonderful.

a valuable read

This book is a very interesting and fulfilling guide to have near at any time. It is a book to embark on the journey of discovering our true self. One of the chapters I enjoyed the most was the part about Self-doubt and all the truths that come with that and why it is important to knock it down. The author talks about being just your fears that manifest in order to protect ourselves from humiliation and loss and keep us safe. Really helpful to put names and know what that means to be able to work on that.

Very good book to work on oneself, it is a personal workshop with a lot of points to discuss and activities to do to get better.


Interesting and fulfilling guide

The Simply Self-Wonderful Inner Workout Book: Celebrating the gift of Being Uniquely You by Judy E. Slater is a really interesting self help book that I think everyone could find useful to read. There are times we all find ourselves unloveable but reading this is certainly a good idea.

The book contains a mix of practical exercises as well as insightful guidance. There are times you can also reflect. I ordered this as a kindle book but with the mandalas included every so often to colour, on hindsight I feel this book would be better in an actual book form, so that you can reflect on what you’ve read while colouring. It’s not quite like other self help books I’ve read but this one I liked even more. It’s written in a way that you can really understand, connect with and reflect on. I didn’t read in one sitting but in a few, as for me I can truly think and digest what I’ve read better when reading this style of book.

If you are finding life a little more challenging and needing to truly become at peace with yourself then please pick this up as I do think it would help. I certainly took some things away with me from reading.
