What would your day look like if you gave yourself an extra 15 minutes in the morning? 20 minutes?
Perhaps early mornings aren’t for you, for a long time they weren’t for me either. However, after two weeks of setting my alarm 15 minutes earlier, I completely shifted the way I approached my day. Did I ever hit the snooze button? Absolutely. But most days I dedicated those first 15 minutes to reading passages from the following attached literature. The result was a more positive outlook and a calmer mind.
The books selected and shared in this post are intended to help uplift the reader and provide simple practices for sustaining inner peace.
Carving out time for self-care and wellness is often a challenge and that’s why I chose these books in particular. These reads are not necessarily intended to be read in just one sitting.
I especially recommend Pema Chodron’s “When Things Fall Apart” and Thich Nhat Hanh’s “Peace is Every Step”. I often refer back to these two gems.
Please feel free to share any recommendations of your own or let me know if you give any of these books a chance. Are you up for the 15 minute challenge?
