4 Awesome Books I’ve Read Recently
I don’t know what it is, but all I have been feeling like doing lately is crawling into bed under my warm blanket and reading a book. It could be the cooler weather, or the fact that my boyfriend seems to have passed on his cold to me, but there is nothing else I would rather be doing. And so, in the name of extreme self care (in honour of the fourth book on this list) I am listening to my body and doing just that.
Here are four books that have been residing on my nightstand of late:
1. SUPER RICH: A GUIDE TO HAVING IT ALL BY RUSSELL SIMMONS
He may be mega rich in dollars, but Russell Simmons has his priorities right. The hip hop mogul tells us all about why focusing on material wealth is not the key to lasting happiness, and shares strategies on how to get past perceived obstacles in order to live a life that is rich with love, friendship, compassion, purpose. When you are super rich, money is merely a by-product.
2. SPIRIT JUNKIE BY GABRIELLE BERNSTEIN
Part memoir, part guide, Gabby Bernstein show us how to transform our lives by making happiness a constant theme. Gabby shares lessons from her own life and teaches us how we can tap into our inner guides in order to create lasting happiness no matter what our external circumstances are. If you’re struggling to find peace in any sort of relationship, I highly recommend this book.
3. YOU CAN CREATE AN EXCEPTIONAL LIFE BY LOUISE HAY AND CHERYL RICHARDSON
I loved this book so much that I have dog-eared almost every page. It’s kind of like listening in on intimate conversations between Louise and Cheryl – two of my favourite teachers and leaders when it comes to using our thoughts to create our lives. Most of all, this book empowers us to really take control of the state of our lives and create something that is totally in alignment with what we really desire.
4. THE ART OF EXTREME SELF CARE BY CHERYL RICHARDSON
I am reading this book at the moment, and it really could not have arrived in the post at a better time. I have been exerting myself a little more than I would like lately, and I’ve come to realise that I need to create boundaries and put certain systems in place in order to relieve some of my workload. The Art Of Extreme Self Care takes this to a whole ‘nother level, giving us permission to disappoint people, say no to things, be sensitive, and put ourselves first at all times – in loving and respectful ways, of course.
