My weekends and evenings have been filled to the brim lately.
It seems that everything is happening all at once and right now.
And that I’m barely keeping up.
So, last weekend I took time out to spend some of my evening browsing at a local bookstore.
It was quiet. My pace slowed down. And I was able to pick up a new book.
When I left, I felt like I could breathe just a little easier.
- Reading for as little as 6 minutes slows heart rates and eases tension.
- Reading is 300% better at reducing stress than walking.
As we start this new month, take time to quiet yourself, slow down, and make space to read.
Our May reading challenge is to read a New York Times Bestseller. This is the book I picked up to start. ⬇️
Here are some additional bestsellers I’ve loved:
- The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave (40 weeks on the list)
- Lessons In Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus (23 weeks on the list)
- The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid (93 weeks on the list)
- The Only Survivors by Megan Miranda (new to the list this week)
