Book Review: Stop, Drop, and Wiggle by Gaia Shawna Morrissette
by Gaia Shawna Morrissette
2014: Balboa Press: Hay House. 103 pages $28.95
Pulling from her own experience, Gaia Morrissette offers detailed seven steps to lift yourself out of depression by wiggling. Can't be bummed if you're giggling and wiggling is the philosophy.
Step 1: STOP!
The beginning asks that you check in with your emotions. How are you? Really.
Step 2: OBSERVE
What's the universe telling you? The messages are there if you look for them.
Step 3: DROP
Take control of your feelings. They belong to you, not the other way around.
Step 4: WIGGLE!
Shake it baby!
Step 5: GRATITUDE
Find something to be grateful for. This exercise will help you feel better, no matter what.
Step 6: LOVE
List those things that make your life worth living.
Step 7 SHIT or get off the pot
Time to put it all into action.
The rest is simple but not necessarily easy: practice practice practice.
It is absolutely impossible to stay bummed out if you're wiggling your tush, as my grandma used to call it. Try it.
