    How to Be Witty and Come Up with the Right Things to Say Instantly!
     
    Surely you've encountered (or even know) that one particular individual in your life who seems to be able to pull "something witty to say" at the drop of a hat that knocks everyone's socks off - by generating the perfect responses for the perfect moment, cracking unexpected jokes making people laugh, or bantering witty one-liner comments with their endless repertoire of repartees.
     
    So who is this Mr./Ms. Witty? You're scratching your head dumbfounded, yet in impressive awe...how in the world do they do it, and deep down secretly wanting to be like them.
     
    Who doesn't, right? Who wouldn't love to be admired, respected, and worshipped for their charming clever wit? Yet, it's much more than that. By being witty, you can always come up with the right things to say, at the right time in expressing yourself clearly, concisely, and convincingly at an instant with few short words (no more, no less) that establishes more authority, credibility, and trust.
     
    That's the power of having a razor-sharp wit! If the pen is mightier than the sword, then the wit is sharper than the knife. However, let's be honest, being witty doesn't always come naturally, especially for those who are less creative and more logical-prone. The good news is, your wit is like your muscle, and like any muscle, it can be trained and built up...all without needing to memorize any line by knowing a few structures and formulas to guide how to generate your responses.
     
    Within "Instant Wit":
     
    * How to use this "twister technique" to prepare yourself on what you should say, when the exact moment occurs for your quick comeback.
     
    * How to strengthen your creative wit to banter witty one-liners with another person, for good fun or quick laugh.
     
    * How to cut down any opponent with your razor-sharp wit, so they won't dare mess with you ever again.
     
    * How to take whatever response you get and absorb it, to think of and respond back with the appropriate words.
     
    * How to use your clever wit to think fast on your feet during tough situation, to handle it properly for the best outcome.
     
    * Plus, custom practical "how-to" strategies, techniques, applications and exercises to improve your wittiness.
     
    ...and much more.
     
    Don't be dim-witted...be quick-witted. Become the king/queen of your wit by developing a razor-sharp wit to be reckon with. Respect the wit!

    Skin brushing can make you feel amazing - right from the first session!
     
    (If you do it right)
     
    Dry skin brushing (aka body brushing) is an old naturopathic technique that you can do even when not feeling great. It simply involves brushing the body all over with a firm brush. Why? Because it makes you look and feel absolutely amazing!It works as a detox by stimulating the lymphatic and blood systems, boosting metabolism, and improving elimination through the skin - the body's largest organ. The lymph gets sluggish when we don't move much, as it relies on muscles to move its contents.
     
    Done incorrectly, any detox can make you feel awful - the side-effects can be pretty rough. This book shows you how to detox by using skin brushing without unpleasant side-effects. You will feel good from Day One. By Day Ten you will have established a new health habit that you can build on.
     
    A Unique New Method Of Dry Skin Brushing

This new method has been tried, tested, and refined by the author, experienced aromatherapist and health coach Mia Campbell.

    Why Do You Need This Book?
     
    Here is the author's own experience:
     
    "I was suffering from a few health problems, including chronic fatigue syndrome, and took up skin brushing as part of a regime to improve my health. I gave up caffeine at the same time. The result was a headache so bad that I wanted to die! I gave up skin brushing and the health drive and sloped back to bed. I hadn't realized that taking up new health habits should be done gradually, one at a time, or you can be overwhelmed by the effects of the detox. After I trained in aromatherapy and massage I understood more about detoxing. I learned about manual lymphatic drainage and wondered why most articles that explain how to do skin brushing differed so much from the way that manual lymphatic drainage therapists work. Over a period of time - and experimentation on my [willing!] clients - I devised my own method of skin brushing. It stimulates the lymphatic system without overloading it so makes you feel wonderful while detoxing, which is pretty rare."
     
    Check With Your Physician
     
    As always, do check with a physician or other health professional before embarking on a new regimen that can affect your health.
