The Badass Girl’s Guide: Uncommon Strategies to Outwit Predators is the one book criminal predators don’t want you to read! Filled with critical information about how to empower yourself to keep from becoming a crime statistic, this definitive, comprehensive guide contains facts and strategies not found in other personal security books.

This remarkable, edgy book reveals how predators select and groom their victims, and teaches women and girls how to “fail” the predator interview to avoid being targeted in the first place. It also provides clear instructions about how to use your personal bodily “weapons” to defend yourself in a confrontation, offering everything you need to know to stay safe, fight if you must, and navigate the criminal justice system if the worst happens.

This book leaves women and girls feeling more inspired, motivated, powerful, and confident about their ability to take care of themselves. If you read just one book on personal safety and self-defense in your lifetime, The Badass Girl’s Guide: Uncommon Strategies to Outwit Predators is the one for you!

The News is Alarming, But You Have More Power Than You Think!

If you watch the evening news, it can seem as if the world is being overrun by violence. And if you’re a woman or girl, you likely have already been victimized in some way or are vulnerable to criminal predators—at home, in the workplace and even in public areas.

Women and girls are generally raised to be nice to everyone. They’re taught to avoid being rude at all cost. To smile through awkward situations. To giggle when they feel uncomfortable rather than risk embarrassing someone who is just “playing” with them. To expect men to be their rescuers if they’re in danger.

How many times in your life have you ignored the blaring sirens from your intuition when someone was violating your boundaries? Or worried as the creepy guy from your dorm followed you to class? Or suffered through regular sexual harassment at work?

It’s a strange paradox—we spend so much of our lives being hyper-vigilant about potential danger, but become utterly helpless when we’re confronted with uncomfortable and even dangerous situations. We smile when someone pays us an inappropriate compliment at work. We roll our eyes when a man makes a crude joke or gesture. We stiffen but don’t necessarily move when someone brushes up against us.

Making “Nice” is Hurting You

Why? Why do we “make nice” when we’re treated with disrespect? Our instincts are correct, but we override them because our early training was so strong. Part of the reason is fear—that the situation will escalate if we object, that we’ll embarrass the other person or ourselves, or that the person we confront won’t like/love/employ us anymore. We’re also often clueless about how to respond. Then there’s the pervasive, personally-held belief that we can’t take care of ourselves, so we demure rather than react.

We feel helpless, which leads to a sense of hopelessness and powerlessness. Denial is also a huge factor; we deny what’s happening to us in favor of making excuses for the perpetrator: “He was just kidding.” “I’m just being overly sensitive.” “He didn’t mean it.” Or the ever popular, “Boys will be boys.” This unfortunate perspective lets predators off the hook when they behave badly.

It’s Time to Take Your Power Back!

If you’re tired of feeling afraid, of loathing and blaming yourself, of feeling too vulnerable, then take YOUR power back right now. Yes, right this very second! Recognize that you’re a powerful being and claim it!

It’s time for you to get indignant! It’s time to be as aggressive or rude as necessary to keep yourself safe and secure. It’s time to stop waiting for someone else to rescue you. Summon your inner badass and rescue yourself!

Wellness – Healing Hormones: How To Turn On Natural Chemicals to Reduce Stress

Healing HormonesHealing Hormones: How To Turn On Natural Chemicals to Reduce Stress
By Mark J Estren, PhD & Beverly A Potter, Phd
Publisher: Ronin Publishing
ISBN: 978-1579511678
ASIN: B00G1SRC2Y
Genre: Wellness
Formats Available For Review: Print (only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers) or pdf

Feeling stressed? Overwhelmed? About to jump out of your skin from pressures of everyday life? We all feel that way at times: ready to explode from everything going on—unrelenting demands, all the time. So we take medicines, see doctors, overeat, even use alcohol or drugs. Still the pressures mount. It’s unbearable! There must be a better way!

There is. Your body knows what to do. Your body makes healing hormones that fight stress, promoting calm and balance. Nitric oxide, dopamine, endorphins, serotonin and oxytocin will help you cope with the demands of living in our hectic modern world—if you let your body do its job!

Healing Hormones shows what you can do to help yourself without pills or supplements. It shows that stress is not what most people think—not something “out there.” Stress is a response to external events—positive or negative. Since stress is your reaction, you can learn to control runaway stress by encouraging your body to produce anti-stress chemicals that will keep you calmer and better balanced.

Healing Hormones shows how we create stress by reacting to what we think is happening around us—not what is really happening. We make our own reality—one much more stress-filled than it has to be. Since we make it, we can change it. Healing Hormones tells how. A wonderful counterbalance to the pressures urging us to take more medicines and look outside ourselves for health, Healing Hormones explains how you can be healthier and happier—today and every day. Includes the quiz: “Is My Doctor a Healer?”
