Reading is one of the most underrated activities. It can open your imagination, expand your horizons, and inspire you to take actions you may not have considered previously. Some of the world’s most successful world leaders and businesspeople spend an hour a day reading…including Obama! So if a president or CEO has time to do some reading, you can as well!
When coaching clients, I get to the heart of what you’re passionate about, what you’re committed to, and self-care is high up on that list to making your dream life and business come to fruition. SOO take even 10-15 minutes a day to be present, read a little and have some “me” time! I leave you with my top 5 end of summer reading list...
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck
By Mark Manson
I already liked this book just from the title. Not giving a f*ck is really at the core of pursuing your dreams, playing full out, and really having it all.
The Untethered Soul
By Michael Singer
Part woo-woo but also a read that literally describes what every human experiences. I personally had so many breakthroughs reading this book including realizing that the only limitations in my life were ones that I created. That life that I wanted would materialize once I got out of my own way. I can't stress enough that this is one of my all-time favorites!
By Donna Tart
A riveting story about a boy’s journey following an accident that takes the life of his mother. I’m a New Yorker who lived through 9/11 and this appreciation the author’s incredible skill in making you feel like you’re in the city experiencing everything while it’s taking place. Plus it’s a Pulitzer winner…can’t go wrong.
The Universe Has Your Back
By Gabrielle Bernstein
This book is the sh*t whenever you’re doubting everything that’s happening to you. Gabby’s words, meditations, and exercises get you back in line, focused, and reconnected to the universe. Every time I begin to question outcomes, I read a few pages, take on a few meditations and I’m back!
Mating in Captivity
By Esther Perel
I had to throw in a relationship suggestion and Esther Perel is purely genius. One of the most important places I coach are relationships because let’s be honest, if we don’t have beautiful relationships in our lives, what do we have?? Read this one if you’re in a relationship or not- it puts the reality and expectations of modern day relationships in perspective.
