adita lang Miami Moms blog Favorite Things Gift Guide

“I folded laundry, made breakfast, dropped my kids to school, filled my car with gas, and am now sitting to write this passage to you….. all before 8 a.m. This is life for me and I know it is for many of you too. We have two choices: we can either dwell on being overworked or we can ramp up our SuperPowers to make each day better than ever!

SuperPowers are in all of us but they need the right set of ingredients to stay nurtured and strong, if not they are left to fizzle down to a mere speckle of a dream, leaving us drained and feeling “maxed out” and “overwhelmed.” You see, SuperPowers are not only for your favorite crime fighting SuperHero, they are within each and every woman who multi-tasks and does so much more.”

Give the gift of Adita Lang’s NEW book – SuperPowers, a Busy Woman’s Guide to a Health and Happiness.  Within each of you lies an array of powers and Adita teaches you how to tap into them with great easy recipes, efficient workouts, relaxation rituals, and fun things to smile about, all designed to make you shine your brightest and best every day. These are true SuperPowers.
