Every last Thursday of the month, I will share 3 things that are bringing me and/or my clients freedom in their lives. I know you’re busy and your inbox is crowded so my goal is to keep these emails quick and quality. Here are the 3 things for this week:
1. This podcast episode: Don’t Accentuate the Positive from The Happiness Lab.
Positive thoughts lead to positive outcomes, right? Well, sometimes things don’t go as planned and when that happens we can feel blindsided. This episode shares the wisdom of people like Olympic Gold Medalist, Micheal Phelps, on how we can use our thinking to prepare us for success when we’re thrown a curve-ball.
2. This journal: Zen as F*ck: A Journal for Practicing the Mindful Art of Not Giving a Sh*t by Monica Sweeney. $8.99 on Amazon.
Journaling is a research-based tool for overcoming depression, anxiety, overwhelm, and more. Yet, when we try to practice journaling we often find ourselves just staring at a blank page not knowing where to begin. I’m a huge fan of journals with prompts for this reason. I love this Amazon best-seller because it’s fun and it’s practical. The pages are small and the prompts are insightful.
3. This book: Atomic Habits by James Clear. $16.20 for Hardcover on Amazon.
This book has hands-down changed my life. James Clear brilliantly lays out how to form habits that stick. If you’re not sure you have time to read the whole book, here is an article that outlines the key concept of his philosophy: Identity-Based Habits: How to Actually Stick to Your Goals this Year.
That’s all for now! Please feel free to email me anytime with questions or suggestions for this newsletter.
