“Me Vs. Brain” is a book that will leave you feeling uplifted, understood, and eager to revisit its pages. Hayley Morris has crafted a masterpiece that combines humor, relatability, and empathy. It serves as a reminder that our overthinking brains and intrusive thoughts are a part of what makes us human, and that we can navigate them with grace and self-compassion. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone seeking a delightful and transformative reading experience.

This outstanding book serves as a comprehensive guide to keeping cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, as well as cancer, at bay. Attia doesn’t hold back as he delves into practical techniques and a broader framework that can truly transform our lives.

“4,000 Weeks, Time Management For Mortals” by Oliver Burkeman is not your typical self-help book—and that’s a good thing! Get ready to have your perspective flipped upside down and your priorities realigned. This book isn’t about offering cheap “time hacks” or trying to squeeze more of the same old bullshit into your already packed schedule. Nope, it takes a more philosophical approach—one that might make you a tad uncomfortable, but trust me, it’s worth it.
Burkeman fearlessly delves into two profound truths that we often shy away from. First, he reminds us that our time on this Earth is limited to around 4,000 short weeks. It’s a stark reminder that we can’t possibly accomplish every single thing we dream of; And that’s okay. Embracing this truth sets us free from the never-ending pressure to do it all.
Picture this: recent scientific research reveals that spending even just twenty minutes a day in nature has incredible benefits for our physical and mental well-being.

We humans, we need that connection with the natural world, and when we don’t get it, we pay a hefty price.
If you’re seeking a book that will challenge your perspectives, spark curiosity, and ignite meaningful conversations, “Stolen Focus” is the one for you.
I’ve delved into my fair share of books on this topic, but let me tell you, Hari brings a fresh perspective to the table. One aspect that really caught my attention was his exploration of the benefits of mind wandering. You know those moments when your thoughts wander off into their own little universe? Turns out, it’s not such a bad thing after all. Hari delves into the beauty of letting our minds roam free and the creativity that can emerge from those precious moments of mental meandering.
Let me introduce you to the brilliance that is Antonio Neves and his book, “Stop Living On Autopilot.” It’s a game-changer when it comes to helping you snap out of that mindless autopilot mode and start living with purpose. What sets this book apart is its sheer simplicity and laser-like focus. It’s not about overwhelming yourself with deep dives into your entire life; instead, Neves invites you to reflect on the past 30 days and ask yourself some thought-provoking questions.
I. Loved. This. Book.
“Enchantment” by May was like a gift from the universe, arriving just when I needed it most. It’s incredible how this book validated every single thing I was feeling deep inside.

She fearlessly shares her own struggles—the ups and downs of work, the complexities of family, and the lingering effects of this wild pandemic we’re all trying to navigate. It’s as if she sees right through the overwhelming rush that engulfs us as the world tries to regain its balance. But she offers us something different—a way of living that breaks free from the chaos. I could go on, and that’s why I fully intent on reviewing this book at a later date!
In “Built To Move,” Kelly and Juliet unveil their brilliant concept of “The 10 Essential Habits to Help you Move Freely and Live Fully.” Now, this is not your typical fitness guide, my friends. No, no. The Starretts bring a whole new perspective to the table—one that’s all about mobilizations, rather than just mere stretching or exercising. And what I adore most about “Built To Move” is that it caters to every type of physical activity and capability level out there. It truly encompasses all of us on this beautiful journey.
