An indispensable guide to creating ? time?n your life, revealed by celebrities' favourite gurus. From fitness to meditation to skin care, for the first time here are the secrets behind the gurus' wisdom for happier, better living

The mid–life crisis, the career crisis, the relationship crisis – everything nowadays seems to be a crisis. We are in a time of fast–paced overachieving, leaving us too overwhelmed, overstressed and overextended to enjoy the simplest details that make us truly happy. Cooking, baths, facials, painting, planting, and deep breathing are overlooked, yet they may very well be the saviours of our sanity. Celebrities have the means to find these pleasures, though – Marisa Tomei has her yoga and her guru Sat Jivan, and Salma Hayek is invigorated by regular reflexology massages. But what do you do to save your sanity? In this accessible, fully illustrated guide, you can learn the celebrities?ecrets to finding ? time, told by the gurus who encourage them to take respite from the insanity of daily living. Learn Susan Lucci's perfect bath remedy; Goldie Hawn's favourite way to meditate; Christie Brinkley's secrets to gardening; and Shannon Elizabeth's beautiful feng shui house.

About the Author:

Co-writer Laurel House is the West Coast editor for Fit magazine and Fit Yoga magazine as well as a freelance writer for several health and wellness publications. She is the author of The Gurus' Guide to Serenity and lives in Los Angeles.



Sharon House (left) is a partner in a well-known public relations firm. Her clients have included such stars as Jane Fonda, fitness guru Kathy Kaehler, and Whole Foods Markets. She and her husband have three children and live in Los Angeles.

From Publishers Weekly:

For everyday folks who don't know how to relax, here's a collection of suggestions from professional spa owners, therapists, chefs and others who provide services to Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Richie and other celebrities. The authors, a mother/daughter team of "Hollywood insiders" (Laurel's the West Coast editor of Fit magazine; Sharon is a publicist), examine how celebrities and their gurus transform their homes into the perfect places to soak in bathtubs, perform or receive spa treatments such as facials, practice yoga, meditate, cook healthy food, make art and crafts, knit, garden and exercise. Thankfully, readers need not own a Beverly Hills mansion (or boast a Tinseltown pocketbook) to follow their recommendations. For example, spa and pool designer Tag Galyean, who has created oases at some top American luxury spa resorts, contributes simple and inexpensive recipes for morning and nighttime baths requiring basic oils like rosemary and lavender. Manhattan's Glow Spa, where Ivana Trump is a regular, provides formulas for a Virgin Gorda Mango Body Polish and Chocolate Fondue Facial Mask. Readers seeking to hear celebrities' direct thoughts on stress-reducing techniques will be disappointed; the authors mainly just list stars who indulge in various relaxing practices. But the guru advice is so detailed and practical, it makes up for the lack of actual celebrity input. B&w photos.
