AudioFile reviews You, Recharged by Polly Campbell- adding that Laura Jennings fits the bill in bringing Polly’s enthusiasm to life.
This absorbing audiobook addresses a lot of negative personal habits–poor eating, exercise avoidance, poor time management, to name a few–so it needs a narrator like Laura Jennings to hold it together with enthusiasm and a pleasing vocal style. Bad habits and rheumatoid arthritis were defeating author Polly Campbell. As a result, she felt chronically overwhelmed, a state of mind a lot of people will recognize. She describes how she steadily pulled herself together, focusing on replenishing the mental energy drained by repeated failure. Working on yourself doesn’t have to be a depleting experience, she says, showing how even small wins can be celebrated. Lifted by the narrator’s believable optimism, this hero’s journey is sure to inspire even those who have given up on living the best life possible.
How to Beat Fatigue (Mostly), Amp Up Your Energy (Usually), and Enjoy Life Again (Always)
Small Steps, Big Energy. Self-help books for women often encourage you to throw out the life you’re living and create a fresh start. You, Recharged isn’t about that. You don’t have to quit your mundane job, cut out cocktails, or sign off of social media to recharge. Instead, Polly Campbell’s inspirational book is about adding things in―good habits, practices, fun, people, activities, self-care strategies―that ignite your essential energy, the sustainable source that fires you up from within and keeps you going during the good and bad.
