Self-Help Book Giveaway: Choose To Climb Series by Geraldine Mair

25th March 2020

This is a really difficult time for a lot of us across the country (and world) at the moment. Isolation can be the space we need in order to look at ourselves and what we need to do to get the best from life.

Qualified complementary therapist, Geraldine Mair, who also has diplomas in counselling and psychology has written three books within her Choose to Climb series. These books focus on showing you how to learn more about yourself and what you want, as well as how to deal with life challenges.

I have the first and second books from this series to giveaway to two lucky readers.

The first book Choose to Climb- Reaching Your Personal Summit* encourages you to look at life from a different perspective. It offers strategies to deal with various life challenges and includes inspiring affirmations and quotes.

The second book, Choose to Climb- Beyond Your Summit features further inspirational quotes and affirmations to encourage further personal development and growth.

This book delves deeper into your mind to look at your challenges and issues. It helps you to problem-solve and find ways to head in the direction you feel is best for your life.

These books are thankfully written in easy to understand language without some of the jargon you can get in other self-help books. It also has information laid out in small chunks so you can take it in and not feel overloaded.

The Giveaway

To win a set of these books, simply enter the form below. The competition ends 30 April 2020.

Entrants must be over the age of 18 and live in the UK. All entries will be checked and verified before two winners are randomly selected.

    It depends on what the changes are but I use the headspace app, I talk to my friends, I try to exercise and meditate every day. It is still hard dealing with challenges especially at the moment with the the Covid uncertainty. So important to take care of yourself

    The best that I can at the time. As health, energy, stamina, resilience can vary due to circumstances / situation. We all need some good times, good experiences, good memories, regular healthy food / refreshments, sufficient rest / sleep, peace / quiet, healthy endorphins, etc.

    Help, assistance, support, company, kindness of others can be beneficial. Try to look on the bright side, if possible. Though this is easier if Enviroment and those around me are calm, peaceful, positive, etc.
