"Going to a new place breaks you out of your rut and forces
you to use new parts of your brain. It makes it easier to interrupt
old, bad, ingrained patterns. If you're in a stuck spot in your
life, go alone to someplace you've never been. You will meet the
'new you' there.' (Jane Fendelman, Counsellor, Phoenix, USA)
yoga teacher wrote this book. She's a very cool lady. I think the
concept of this book is very cool as well. Kitchen Yoga is a revolutionary
off-the-mat yoga regime for people who can't always attend class.
The 24 fully illustrated, easy to follow yoga poses are designed
for young people and older adults, alike; for the retired and the
active; for experienced yogis and tentative beginners. As the author
explains, 'With Kitchen Yoga you can increase flexibility, mobility
and strength by taking advantage of spare moments in the one place
we spend time in daily -- the kitchen. And
for travelers on the go, you can use the 24 Kitchen Yoga Travel

Practice forgiveness. Let go of the past. You can't change it, so
release your emotional baggage, and if you need to have a good cry.
Welcome the tears. Tears are your allies and your safety valve.
There's nothing like a good cry to make you feel better and bring
you back into the present moment. For my money, tears are the fountain
of youth, they open the heart, release facial tension, and help
to peel back the years.
Eyewitness Travel Japan is the guide that the Cruise West line recommends
to accompany their spectacular cruises around Japan.
This book bills itself as 'the guide that shows you what others
only tell you' and it delivers. Oh my goodness, the collection of
lovely photographs are both informative and enticing. From sections
on Tea Ceremonies to the history of the island of Hokkaido to what
to expect in Japanese food halls, DK Eyewitness Travel Japan carefully
prepares you for a culture and history very different from your
own. The maps provided have been improved over earlier editions
(even includes a Tokyo subway system map) and there are more hotels
and restaurants included this time. This is a very classy publication!

statistics for sexual assaults in Japan are very low, and any unwanted
propositions from men can usually be shaken off with a simple no.

a problem, and increasing evidence suggests that sex crimes tend
to go unreported or unprosecuted in Japan. Thus, women are best
advised to take due care everywhere they go and with whom they associate.
