The Every-Year Itch

Do life differently

Kirsten de Bouter Shillam


You must have felt the Itch. The urge to change gear, shift focus to your true talents, learn, travel, have an adventure. But somehow it hasn’t happened.

While you’re spending your life ticking boxes, following regulations and expectations and ignoring your itch to do things differently, your incredible personal resources, dreams and plans remain untapped and dormant.

But you are more capable than you think. Much more is possible than you dare to believe.

This book invites you on a journey: scratch your every-year itch and discover an inexhaustible well of energy and lifelong development.

Do try this at home!


I really enjoyed this book literally from the first page. Each chapter was the perfect length and packed a punch. She didn’t ramble on and on like some self-help books. I definitely learned some things out of this one. Thank you for the opportunity to read and review this book. “Reflect and act.”


This is the perfect book for the new year! If you’re ready for a change, check out this book. It came at the perfect time in my life.


The perfect book for those of us heading into a new stage of life (or a New Year!) The Every-Year Itch is an accessible self-help book about simple ways to change your life for the better. With easy to follow advice, I enjoyed this book and feel like it helped me tremendously!
