BookReview - Shea Vaughn's Breakthrough

About the Book
Shea Vaughn, mother of actor Vince Vaughn, is a 25-year veteran of the fitness industry. As a fitness expert, professional trainer and wellness coach, Vaughn has become a spokeswoman for creating well-being at any age with her recently released book, Breakthrough: The 5 Living Principles to Defeat Stress, Look Great, and Find Total Well-Being (HCI Books).

What Vaughn discovered, from both fitness training and personal experience, is that women over 45 often feel like they are spinning their wheels and failing to live up to their own expectations. She says the problem is a lack of a mind-body connection, which can lead to depression, discouragement, disconnect, and deflation in body, mind, and heart.

In Breakthrough, Vaughn offers women her Five Living Principles within a self-styled East-meets-West lifestyle, wellness and exercise practice developed from her own life lessons, decades of training in many disciplines and influenced by eastern philosophy that is tailored to address specific issues facing women over 45.

“The Five Living Principles of Well-Being: Commitment, Perseverance, Self-Control, Integrity, and Love, are an inspirational force in helping me create a positive lifestyle with a healthy body and the supportive mental and emotional paradigm to deal with changing and demanding times,” says Vaughn. “One encourages the other and together they help you find balance, self-confidence and a personal state of well-being.”

Vaughn herself is no stranger to this phenomenon: a mother and entrepreneur, she has had similar personal challenges which led her to find a new way of living, including reconnecting her emotional health with her physical health and founding SheaNetics®, a revolutionary blend of ancient and contemporary values and movements that deliver a powerful mind-body experience. Followers of this practice get in shape, feel great and naturally make life-healthy choices.

From recipes for well-being to creating your safe space to “meditation in motion and thought”, Breakthrough offers a jumpstart for women looking to redefine their way of life in a sustainable way.

My Take on the Book
This book and the author offers five main principles that may seem simply but are really quite profound and will truly change your life if you embrace them. Though I do say that it is something that will change your life it is not something that is easy to enact or to embrace in one's life. I know this from first hand experience. In reading through this book I worked on the principles and will tell you that they are not easy, but the effort is definitely worth the effort. The book is inspiring and will encourage you to make positive changes in your life that will only make you a stronger and better person in the long run!
