“In my work as a speaker and seminar leader, I observed that many people reported being on auto-pilot and ‘going through the motions’ at work,” explains Deri Latimer. “Their habits seemed to have induced a kind of ‘sleep’ that was holding them back from engaging fully in their work (and life).  I wrote this book to provide a toolkit to help people shift out of negative emotion when it is getting in their way, and to create positive emotion in situations when it would be useful for them to have as a resource.” 

Details of the launch: 

Saturday October 8, 2:00 pm
Grant Park in the Atrium
McNally Robinson Booksellers Grant Park
1120 Grant Ave.
Winnipeg, Manitoba
R3M 2A6 

Acclaim for the book:

“WARNING. This energizing book by Deri Latimer is not meant for bedtime reading because it will wake you up as you get energized and inspired. The book offers a mental, emotional, and physical message and massage to enhance your well-being. In our busy lives, most of us are mindless of our emotions and habits as we carry on day after day in familiar yet detrimental ruts. Deri’s book provides needed guidance to pause, get out of a rut, and move into a new groove.”

David Zinger
Author, ‘Zengage’, ‘Assorted Zingers’ 

“Deri Latimer has the innate ability to capture the essence of emotions and place them into words. Wake Up To Your Habits will help many, many people find inner peace in life’s most difficult moments. Through Deri’s insightful and introspective articulation, anyone who reads this book will feel challenged and empowered to live a better life – every day.”

“While there are many books about the mind-body connection, Deri’s positive energy, humor, compassion and belief in people’s potential offer a different way to go about making this connection.  Deri goes beyond the message that the way we think and feel affects our behaviour, and offers tools to shift our thinking and recognize the stories behind our emotions so that we can make more conscious and more positive choices about where we go from here. Not only does the book include simple and insightful questions that offer a different way to tell our stories, but the photographs depicting the range of emotions are vibrant and poignant reminders of how they look on us.”
