Books I Recommend Most Often.

Here is a short list of books that have changed my life.

 

DARING GREATLY: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

written by Brene Brown

 

THE FIVE MINUTE JOURNAL: A Happier You in 5 minutes a Day

written by Intelligent Change

THE CROSSROADS OF SHOULD AND MUST: Find and Follow Your Passion

written by Elle Luna

DARLING, YOU CAN'T DO BOTH: And Other Noise To Ignore On Your Way Up

written by: Janet Kestin & Nancy Vonk

RADICAL ACCEPTANCE: Embracing Your Life With The Heart Of A Buddha

written by: Tara Brach

Even if you're not religious or particularly spiritual, you may find that this book and the thoughts presented may help you live a more calm and present life.  Many of the topics and ideas Brach presents are similar to Mindful Self-Compassion.  I've been a student of MSC and would whole-heartedly recommend a mindfulness class to anyone.  Essentially, practicing mediation or mindfulness without judgement is hard to do in this world, but daring to do it, will make you stronger when it comes to dealing with difficult emotions, and situations.  The practice of meditation and mindfulness has changed my life greatly.
