At a time when it’s commonplace to reject emotions and honour thoughts, Get Conscious explores why it’s time to stop overthinking, how to do it, and why awareness is the true key to happiness.

In ancient times, most people believed that if you traveled far enough to the edge of the world, you would fall off. This was a mirage that limited their lives. Today, the mirage that we all live by is the idea that ‘I will be happy when…’

I will be happy when I am married!
I will be happy when I leave my job!
I will be happy when I am rich!
I will be happy when I am on holidays!

This belief leads to us over-thinking and over-analysing all the ways that we might be happier at some point in the future. But what if happiness is the wrong aim? What if happiness is like the horizon: an imaginary line that seems real until we start to chase it?

In this book, Ali Walker shows that instead of seeking happiness in the future, we can all practise awareness in each moment. This is how we train ourselves to generate calming, positive and uplifting thoughts and emotions. Drawing on the author’s research in psychology, and her work with clients, Get Conscious breaks down the four elements of self-awareness, and provides strategies for mastering each:

  • Feel: Honor all emotions
  • Think: Choose positive thoughts
  • Sense: Trust the messages of your body
  • Act: Go with the flow of life and love Includes case studies, rituals, exercises and activities to help you tune into your inner being and let self-awareness guide you to genuine happiness.
Get Conscious moves us out of overthinking and into awareness. It is the transformation of a lifetime.

Life changing!


It's been many years since I've read a book and I'm so pleased this was the one I chose. It is the kick start I needed to start to understand myself as a means of becoming a better me. I was so excited when I started reading Get Conscious that I told many people close to me that they could read it when I finished, but I have grown so fond of my book that I shall be keeping it to myself and gifting copies to my loved ones as I think it's a book that can be read and re read, I love it.
