Bloomington, Indiana, UNITED STATES

SYDNEY, Feb. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With every new year comes a renewed focus on self-improvement, health, and the value of instituting positive change. Success coach and speaker Donna Portland illuminates the importance of strengthened mind-spirit-body connection and how it can be gained through deliberate changes - large and small - in her breakthrough guide, “Positive Habits Get Results.”   A straightforward look at how well-chosen lifestyle changes lead to transformations and an improved sense of purpose, this book is geared toward readers looking for a fresh perspective on life.


In her 50s, Portland summoned the courage to walk away from an unfulfilling existence and begin a journey toward finding new meaning in her life. Now a master Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) coach, hypnotherapist and speaker who helps clients reach their aspirations and dreams, she compiled lessons personally learned in this compelling lifestyle guide. Interweaving her personal story with a visible step-by-step plan, “Positive Habits Get Results” empowers readers to take back their energy and change their daily habits to achieve the results they want. 


Addressing several aspects of physicality including the importance of maintaining a regular sleep routine, good hydration, diet and exercise, plus incorporating consistent meditation and relaxation techniques, and eliminating other (unhealthy) habits that steal energy, Portland dives in on the benefits of an attitude of gratitude, a mastering of the mind and improved time management. The steps are presented in a clear and concise manner so the reader can easily and instantaneously put into action the suggestions and go forward with a healthier and more fulfilling approach to life.


“The message and advice presented in this book is to make viable plans, take actionable steps—one after the other—and build on your success,” says Portland “It is my hope that this book assists anyone who is looking for ways to feel better and improve their life—one step at a time.”


Designed for anyone who feels stuck or left searching for answers on how to find true joy, “Positive Habits Get Results” is a simple guide focused on transforming lives through consistent actions to achieve true wellness and build personal confidence. Portland’s inspiring words will encourage readers to set themselves up to achieve great results that last.
