"Improve Your Wellness Quotient in 28 Days: A 4 Week Wellness Program" is designed to help you achieve optimal health one day at a time. Lakshmi Narayani's work makes self-improvement something anyone can work at without making major changes to their lives. There are 28 different Wellness Enablers that help with your physical fitness, psychological health, emotional fulfillment and spiritual satisfaction. At the end of the text, there are weekly and monthly scorecards for marking down each day's Wellness Enabler with room for comments. There is also an additional 28 days of Wellness Enabler included which could easily allow you to extend your Wellness Program further.

I smiled as I read this book. I had expected this would be exactly like the usual wellness prescriptions but that was not at all the case with "Improve Your Wellness Quotient". The Wellness Enablers are fun and, for the most part, easily accomplished. Narayani's presentation of each enabler is inspirational and open-ended. There is never the sense that the author is telling you to do something a certain way; instead, there is more of a gentle nudge showing you how you can expand or improve your life, health and wellness. While some suggestions may be more appealing than others (I, for one, shudder at the thought of de-cluttering), there are so many simple and practical things to promote wellness, such as an hour spent in a park, coffee with a friend or playing with your pet. Who knew wellness could be so much fun?
