Looking for new books to bring about peace, more mindfulness, inspiration, and possibly change the trajectory of your life?
These 8 excellent reads promoting a more peaceful life have all of these characteristics and more. And they’re each only between $8-$15!
I have personally read each of these books and can attest to their meaningful thought provoking powers:
1. Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
“It’s no wonder that The Power of Now has sold over 2 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over 30 foreign languages. Much more than simple principles and platitudes, the book takes readers on an inspiring spiritual journey to find their true and deepest self and reach the ultimate in personal growth and spirituality: the discovery of truth and light.” -Amazon
2. A Year of Positive Thinking by Cyndie Spiegel
“Yes, you can change your life by changing your thoughts. In A Year of Positive Thinking, you’ll transform your mindset and motivate positive life changes one thought, one day, and one year at a time.” -Amazon
3. Learned Optimism by Martin EP Seligman
“Offering many simple techniques, Dr. Seligman explains how to break an “I—give-up” habit, develop a more constructive explanatory style for interpreting your behavior, and experience the benefits of a more positive interior dialogue. These skills can help break up depression, boost your immune system, better develop your potential, and make you happier.” -Amazon
4. Your True Home by Thich Nhat Hanh
“Bringing the energy of true presence into our lives really does change things for the better—and all it takes is a little training. This treasury of 365 gems of daily wisdom from one of the most beloved Buddhist teachers of our age is a help and support for anyone who wants to train to meet every moment of life with 100 percent attention.
Thich Nhat Hanh shows how practicing mindfulness can transform every area of our lives—and how its benefits radiate beyond us to affect others and the whole, larger world.” -Amazon
5. The Resilience Factor by Karen Reivich and Andrew Shatte
“Resilience is a crucial ingredient–perhaps the crucial ingredient–to a happy, healthy life. More than anything else, it’s what determines how high we rise above what threatens to wear us down, from battling an illness, to bolstering a marriage, to carrying on after a national crisis.
Everyone needs resilience, and now two expert psychologists share seven proven techniques for enhancing our capacity to weather even the cruelest setbacks.” -Amazon
6. The Gift of Imperfection by Brene Brown
“When our embarrassments and fears lie, we often listen to them anyway. They thwart our gratitude, acceptance, and compassion—our goodness. They insist, “I am not worthy.” But we are worthy—of self-discovery, personal growth, and boundless love.
With Brené Brown’s game-changing New York Times bestseller The Gifts of Imperfection we find courage to overcome paralyzing fear and self-consciousness, strengthening our connection to the world.” -Amazon
7. The Untethered Soul by Michael A. Singer
“What would it be like to free yourself from limitations and soar beyond your boundaries? What can you do each day to discover inner peace and serenity? The Untethered Soul offers simple yet profound answers to these questions.” -Amazon
8. Things Might Go Terribly, Horribly Wrong by Kelly G. Wilson
“You don’t need a book to tell you this much: Sometimes things fall apart, crack open, and miss the mark. You can plan and strategize and keep your eye on the horizon, watching for trouble. And nothing you can do will protect you from the fact that things might, when you least expect it, go terribly, horribly wrong.
If you’re anxious about this, it’s not like you don’t have a reason. If you’re very anxious about this, you’re certainly not alone. In fact, even if your whole life feels like it’s about anxiety, your story is a lot more common that you might imagine.” -Amazon
