Habit Changers

Upon picking up Habit Changers, I did not have many expectations. I was intrigued by the concept of life-altering mantras and since I am a yoga fanatic, mindfulness has already been a concept that is near and dear to my heart.

M.J Ryan does a fantastic job of keeping things simple. She states that some of the biggest obstacles in our lives tend to deal with our own perspectives and how we respond to certain situations. Her tips are not extensive and drawn out. Instead, they are simple and straight to the point- which I absolutely love.

In essence, I keep this book right on my night stand and I pick it up any time I need a mental refresher. Our lives progress very rapidly and while we should enjoy our time, we should also be mindful of the way that we continue each day. With concepts such as happiness, change, risk taking, worrying, etc., there are bound to be parts that most people can relate to!

Start the New Year out Right

I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday season! Where did 2016 go? How is it a new year already?!

This past year has been a real whirlwind. I’ve ┬áhad my good times, I’ve had my bad times and I had moments that I wish I could re-live forever! I even created a new endeavor- I want to travel to all 50 states during my lifetime. I have completed the entire east coast thus far and I’m planning some trips out west for the new year.

Throughout the year, I have realized that time keeps progressing, but we have to make sure that we make the most of it. We only have one life, why not live to our fullest? This means getting rid of grudges, avoiding negative thoughts and staying away from people and ideals that simply do not serve us.

It’s about time we free our minds and quit worrying so much. While I am not a fan of New Years resolutions, I am a fan of working towards our better selves on a daily basis. This does not have to come around solely on January 1st!

Here’s to love, laughter and positivity!

Life on the Edge

I have to say, Life on the Edge is one of the most thought provoking books that I have read in a while. I typically like to pick up nonfiction pieces that are geared towards self-improvement, but I figured that I would try something new this time around. At first glance, it seems as if the book may be difficult due to the discussion of quantum physics and biology. However, the information is rather interesting and very easy to read. As a whole, there is a precise explanation on the entirety of the world and how science plays a huge role in the development of overall life. Certain events that have taken place thus far have a significant impact on the way that human beings live and specific behaviors may be related to some of the negative instances.

This book is highly recommended for those people who are interested in science, but they seem to be intimidated by all of the nuances that are often seen. The authors break down the concepts in a clear and concise manner without facilitating confusing mechanisms. Furthermore, there is an allowance to get a better feel for the world and how science advances have progressed in a proper manner. If you are looking for something different, this is the book for you. Give it a try!

20 Things We’d Tell our TwentySomething Selves: Book Review!

This is the kind of book that you wish you had when you start your early 20s. Filled with motivation and inspiration, the information and stories that are presented are nicely created and you feel as if you are speaking with a friend!

The advice that is found is very grace-filled and the reminders that are seen remind us that we are still growing. In essence, even after we get out of our 20s, most people still do not have everything figured out. There are many people who spend so much of their time worrying that they truly forget to live.

With just two years of my 20s left, I have taken the advice to heart and I remember to count my blessings each day. Give this book a try! You will not regret it!
