I am always thankful to read a good book. So I am going to add a new feature to Sharing Thanks. Every month I am going to share what books I'm reading! These selections are books I fell in love with over the month. They either provided me with inspiration, comedy, or wild imagination. I love reading while I'm soaking in a hot bath. I also love to read while I am waiting. I am happier waiting if I have a good book. It turns down time in to a learning time for me!
This month I loved reading, "10% Happier" by ABC Nightline reporter Dan Harris.Don't we all want to be at least 10% Happier. This is a great read as Dan Harris has interviewed many self-help gurus over the years like Eckart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, and even the Dalai Lama. I enjoyed reading about how Dan Harris started practicing meditation. He has some great instructions in the appendix of his book about beginning a basic mindfulness meditation practice, as well as how to do walking meditation, and compassion meditation. I enjoyed trying some of his exercises. I attend a weekly library meditation group in our town, and it may be the most relaxing hour of my week. It energizes my positive thinking.
If you are looking for a good laugh , I recommend Mindy Kaling's hysterical ,"Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?"
