The Joy of Living by Barry Shore! How to slay stress and be happy!

Happy Monday Everyone!!

Today I’m so excited to bring you news of this book ‘The Joy of Living’, which is due to be published May 11th 2021. It’s an interactive guide to stress relief and happiness. Just the thing for Mental Health Awareness Month. And yes, we are reviewing this, so do pop back regularly to check it out.

“The JOY of Living”


JOY is that special quality that makes one healthier, wealthier, and wiser. And who doesn’t want that? But a joyful outlook is a tough thing to muster in the post-pandemic age of economic decline and social unrest.  

Fortunately, a new book is bringing hope and timely actionable advice people can use to better their lives in the post-COVID era.


“The Joy of Living” is your passport to being healthier, wealthier, and happier in a time of unease and misgiving.

Part journal, part memoir, part activity book, it’s a timely guide to slay stress, beat burnout, and cope with life, post-pandemic

Author Barry Shore reveals 11 strategies that you can use to slay stress and be happy….no matter the circumstance. Imagine standing up in the morning fully healthy and in the hospital, that evening completely paralyzed; and not from a car accident or a spinal injury, but from a rare disease.

You’ll join the journey as Barry moves from paralysis to now swimming 2 miles per day, 6 days a week. All with a SMILE.

“The Joy of Living” is a MUST read after the COVID crazy year we all endured. 

The best part about this book (besides Barry’s awe-inspiring story) is that it is interactive.

In this book, he spreads not only joy but also strategies to manifest it and use it for personal wellness and professional success.

This book will make you smile, it will make you think, and it will change your outlook on life.

He does this with a special joie de vivre and this book is the embodiment of that spirit. You’ll learn much…JOY is that special quality that makes one Healthier Wealthier and Wiser. And who doesn’t want that! This is a good book by a good guy.”
