Editorial Reviews

Most books on health and wellness tackle a single element: some trendy new diet or fitness craze. But Linden Schaffer's Living Well on the Road offers a much-needed, much healthier antidote: a completely holistic approach (and a very fun and approachable one) to driving more wellness into virtually every aspect of your life - from getting better sleep, eating more sensibly, getting moving, being more mindful, and injecting more health into every hour of your life, whether at work or on the road for business. This is a sane, 365-degree roadmap to getting on a healthier path, filled with easy tips, tools, expert advice and the medical evidence to make practical change. After four decades in the world of spa and wellness, like Linden, I have firmly come to realize that the answer to leading a more fulfilling, healthier life is not just one thing - but so many things. Schaffer writes with clarity, and her many years in the industry show that she truly understands what she is advocating. This is a fantastic book for anyone living a stressed out, digitally addicted life, that can't make healthier eating, sleeping and exercising a reality.
