Praise For The Book

“I was so enthralled by this book that I wrote this note to the author –

Early Sunday morning reading (finishing) of your book has compelled me to pop you a wee note.

I love it, or it’s excellent, doesn’t really cut it – and feels a tad platitudinous. What I’m actually feeling is – wow, you’ve created something really special here.

I mean, we’ve all read countless self-help, positive thinking tomes, many of which are good, but often they’re quite a chore to read. Your book really bounces.

I particularly like how relatable every page is (those of our vintage have lived every one of these pages), you don’t need to read from page one. Just open it at any page, or flick back and forward for more gold.

It’s a real gem, Nicole. Brilliant work!!”


“It was a joy to pick up this lively-looking book…and feel its weight and size in my hands.

First random openings were enticing, with welcoming titles and images.

The writing is as from a friend, offering gentle and wise advice, even in typically sensitive areas of our human nature.

I love that this book is authentic to its title and concept, in that it takes only a minute of reading to glean inspiration and solace. This is a book I can read for minutes or hours, every day or some days, and certainly time and again.”

Susan Blond

“Such a refreshing book with wonderful ideas on how we can make the most of our busy lives, day by day. And a great coffee table book as well, always getting positive comments from our house guests!”

The tone is both realistic and very encouraging and the book itself is beautiful to pour over again and again. I have marked many pages to reread and underlined quotes to remember. Highly recommend it!!!”
Christina Clark

“This book is bursting with personality and is simply put, absolute fun. A bold and colorful array of imagery (it’s my new coffee table book) and sentiments— I’ve never felt so relaxed and empowered at the same time. Some of the passages hit me like fireworks. As a busy professional with way too much to do and little time to even think, I am always searching in vain for that little something that can rebalance me. Believe it or not, this is now my go-to stress buster. This book made me rethink the value of time and how a busy day can turn into a serene one, in ‘just a minute.’”

I loved the fact that you can read small sections whenever you feel you need an uplift from shopping lists, mountains of chores, work or just need a minute to yourself, it makes you sit down and think of yourself and other people. I can say this because I have used the book in this way, how good is that! I bought the book for three of my friends all with very different daily routines and they all loved it.”
