Enter To Win: Wellness Kit Including Yoga Mat, Candles, Journal, And More Along With $100 Gift Card

The last year taught many of us an important lesson: taking care of your wellness and health is vital to your life—your health is more important than anything else. Many of us believe that the condition of our health is determined by how we look or how much we weigh, or that being healthy only consists of eating well and exercising regularly. In times like these, we might even think that the condition of being in good health is merely the absence of sickness.

However, wellness goes far beyond that. It goes beyond our physical health and extends well into mental, emotional, and spiritual health as well. Your body, mind, and spirit are all connected, and not taking care of one can be just as harmful as not taking care of the others. Well, we have Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, Dondeena Bradley Ph.D, and Sonia Satra, founder and CEO of Moticise, teaming up with Bookstr for a Mega-Wellness Giveaway this month.

Yoga, meditation, hydration, and mindfulness are all things that can help you to ensure that you’re living a life of wellness, and will help to benefit both your mind and body.

So, to help you make 2021 the year of health, we have teamed up with three wellness authors and speakers with a giveaway to help you make your health a top priority this year!

    • Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum’s Heart Book
    • Dondeena Bradley’s Living Full Circle

About the Books

Heart Book: Every Woman’s Guide to a Heart-Healthy Life

Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women in the United States. As a cardiologist with specializations in preventative cardiology and women’s heart disease, Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum has dedicated her career to empowering women to keep their hearts, and themselves, healthy. She has observed that patients who seem to be at the peak of their lives are also often at the peak of their stress levels. Instead of enjoying better health and happiness, and reaping the rewards of career and family achievements, many of the women who come to see her suffer from chest pain, palpitations, and other alarming symptoms. Often, the cause is lifestyle-related, calling for a holistic approach that transcends medical intervention alone.


The regimen Dr. Steinbaum developed has transformed thousands of lives and is now available to every woman in Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum’s Heart Book.


Living Full Circle: Simple Ancient Rituals for Modern Life

In Living Full Circle, Bradley translates time-tested and proven healing remedies into practical tools for taking care of yourself. Guiding you through the vast landscape of health and wellness, Bradley focuses on traditional methods and applies them to today’s modern world. These classic and simple techniques will ultimately enable you to rejuvenate your daily rituals, ground and reconnect with all five of your senses, and improve your overall well-being.
