Lots of people are tired of living a life based on comparison, competition, lack, and fear. They want to feel better, but don’t know how.
Kate Eckman, accomplished entrepreneur, elite athlete, mindfulness expert, and Columbia University-certified executive coach, used to be like lots of people. On the surface, Kate was a success and a high-level performer. But deep down, her life was full of less-tangible roadblocks — excess mental and emotional weight, deep-seated insecurity, self-judgment, and overwhelming stress and anxiety. It took a massive wake-up call to change the way she looked at herself and her life. She dove headfirst into finding the keys to generating a sense of self-worth and contentment from within.
In her debut book, THE FULL SPIRIT WORKOUT: A 10-Step System to Shed Your Self-Doubt, Strengthen Your Spiritual Core, and Create a Fun & Fulfilling Life (New World Library, April 27th, 2021), Kate Eckman shares the inner fitness regimen that saved and fundamentally transformed her life. Rooted in neuroscience, positive psychology, and whole-person coaching techniques, her results-driven plan focuses on building spiritual and emotional muscles to feel confident and complete—regardless of others’ expectations, approval, or criticism—and achieve incredible feats or whatever readers truly want.
“When we allow our self-worth to be defined by people and sources outside ourselves, we can never have enough or be enough,” says Kate, speaking from experience. “Imagine a life that isn’t about how to ‘get this’ or ‘do that,’ but instead about being the person who naturally attracts all that your heart desires. You just have to believe how powerful you are! Increased performance and resilience, more meaningful relationships, newfound confidence and well-being, true fulfillment, and fun are available to you when you get your spirit in shape.”
In THE FULL SPIRIT WORKOUT, Kate details the spiritual fitness principles and daily exercises that she applies in her coaching practice with business leaders and professional athletes, as well as relies on in her own life. Based on rigorous research and multifaceted training, her regimen demands a genuine commitment to change. But it’s far from grueling—Kate builds in creativity, flexibility, and delight so that each “rep” feels less like work and more like play. Designed for high-achievers in business and sports, and anyone seeking a more meaningful and rewarding life, her 10-step plan incorporates a mind-body-spirit approach. Step by step, day by day, readers will learn how to:
• Stretch their comfort zones, which Kate defines as “an arbitrary boundary that we create in our minds based on fear,” and stop struggling and self-sabotaging their chances at true fulfillment.
• Lift themselves up, starting with redefining others’ standards to feel beautiful (or handsome) from the inside out—even if they don’t (yet) feel confident or comfortable in their own bodies.
• Feel the burn, which takes the courage to dig deep and uncover the false, limiting beliefs that are holding them back and embrace challenging relationships, breakups and all, as tools for growth.
• Strengthen their core confidence, a crucial step that involves creating new, empowering beliefs, exploring core values, practicing self-forgiveness…and much more!
By following THE FULL SPIRIT WORKOUT, readers will become more emotionally resilient and maintain their equilibrium, develop positive self-talk habits, increase feelings of well-being, allow abundance to come into their lives and put their unique gifts to use, get off the treadmill and cool down by cultivating small, meaningful moments of mindfulness and stillness throughout the day.
