Publisher's Summary

National Best Seller

"Stomach stress gurgles are no match for this spinning rolodex of chill pills." (Neil Pasricha, number one best-selling author of The Book of Awesome and The Happiness Equation)

Life is stressful as f--k. But it doesn’t have to be.

It’s no wonder you can’t calm down: your to-do list is as long as your arm, your bank balance keeps dropping, you feel guilty for not calling your parents more often and there always seems to be a big deadline to meet at work. You need a serious breather - but you can barely find time to shower, let alone to exercise or meditate.

 In Let That Sh*t Go, Kate Petriw and Nina Purewal share the wisdom they’ve gained though decades of practising and teaching others to find peace of mind no matter how busy they are. Learn to put your life in perspective, take each day one step at a time and steal moments of calm amid the chaos. And remember: it’s not worth holding onto that sh*t.

Life-changing

After a devastating break-up w/ my life partner, I was feeling lost and overwhelmed with a range of emotions. So I decided to start listening to audiobooks/podcasts.

The word self-love was bouncing around in my head ever since my sister told me that I need to learn to love myself more. At first, I was appalled by my sister’s advice. What do you mean I don’t love myself? Of course I do!

But then I listened to this book and a rude awakening occurred to me. I actually do not have a firm grasp of what self-love truly means. I’ve been neglecting myself. Been holding myself up to a ridiculous standard to the point of exhaustion. I’ve been harboring pain. I’ve been stretching myself thin trying to take care of everyone but me! The list goes on. It was then that I realized that if I want to be truly happy, I NEED TO CHANGE. This book gave me the tools I needed to get started. My biggest regret is that I didn’t find this book sooner. I am forever changed by it and very grateful. Thank you!

Just OK

This book has some good beginners guide points to mindfulness. As someone who has practiced mindfulness physically and mentally for the last decade this book is not for me. It’s very basic and sometimes their research is inaccurate. Furthermore, the narration isn’t bad but it’s an awkward blend of cheesy and self-righteous.

I hate to say it but I rolled my eyes throughout the first half of the book and then couldn’t listen anymore.

It’s just not my flavour!

It’s okay

It’s a good book for mindfulness beginners as it has all the advice you need to get you started. However, I didn’t feel like I learned something new from it, but it was a good reminder to reinforce all that I’ve learned in the past. Is easy to listen and I enjoy it nevertheless.

Disappointed, would not recommend for men.

Started out great, but then....Very female-heavy referencing to situations. I lost interest early, and anytime I attempted to give repeated chances I became frustrated with its one-sidedness.

The book to get you though the pandemic

I first read this masterpiece when it when it was released in paperback. It was the mental health healing book I had been searching for since losing my parents decades ago.

When the Audio book was released in January 2020, I immediately grabbed a copy in Audible, not realizing it would become my new mental health and mindfulness companion through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Nina and Kate are able to provide actionable ways to overcome our anxieties and depression that are rooted deep. I personally liked how real they are and the engaging language used to convey their messages.

I have recommended this book to so many and will continue to do for years to come. The audio book is even that much more intimate, getting to hear it straight from each author’s own voice.

Bravo!

Shallow and unhelpful

The title of this book is very misleading as it comes across as something that will be real, no BS advice for adults but the narrator sounds like a kindergarten teacher and the way it is written is very immature. She calls people “negative Nancy’s and positive Peggy’s” in a way like she is explaining feelings to a 3 year old. The chapters and topics never really have any depth to the advice, it’s very unhelpful and never really gets to the root of any of the issues. I should have done my research because the author comes across as if she is just giving advice she has heard or read about in magazines vs actually using experience or research to discuss the topic. I couldn’t finish it because the narrators voice is so annoying. There are a lot more books out there that are way more helpful. This was a waste of an audible credit.

Canadians teachingAmericans about stress yeah righ

guys. these two brilliant women who live in Canada with 1/8th the gun violence and 1/16th the rat race are going to train us on reducing our stress. If you want a good self-help book, stick to Tony Robbins. if you want to reduce your stress, increase your mindfulness or be more aware of stressful emotions, read anything by the Dalai lama.

after attempting some strategies in this book, I have appreciated the value. still think Dalai lama books are a good compliment to this book

This really helped!

I read this going through a break up and dark time mentally and it helped me so much get back on track, practicing mindfulness is an amazing tool. I feel so much better and I am not as hard on myself anymore whether I have good or bad days! Let that shit go!

Good info with annoying delivery

The information is good. I have no issue with curse words but they come across very forced in the delivery here. That along with the author trying to use “cool lingo” throughout the book. A bit distracting and annoying which is a shame because there are numerous highlights throughout the book.

A sigh of relief

although some of this sounds pretty basic, I cannot be reminded enough that some things are out of my control. If you need to reset your perspective and need a jumping point this is a great start.

Meh

Pretty elementary ideas, but an effective springboard for the subject. Obnoxious narration really takes away from content. I could get past the accents, but speeding up playback to 1.3 made it bearable.
