Live your best life. Sounds easy. Sounds complicated. It seems trendy at the moment to “live in the moment”, to live with authenticity, or to be present in our day-to-day lives. But why? Shouldn’t we always live like that? If we are always living for the next big thing; the promotion, the vacation, the relationship – we never truly enjoy the everyday small occurrences that can just as easily put a smile on our face or the faces of those we love.
This month’s display is called Live Your Best Life and we have curated a collection of books covering topics to reset your thinking in a positive way. Taking the time to develop new habits and routines, such as daily mediation, yoga, and gratitude can vastly improve our mindset over time. These habits, as well as decluttering items you no longer use or need, have been proven to relieve stress, reframe your thinking and can lead to a more positive outlook on life.
While many of these titles will be available on display in the library lobby, there are additional titles available on Overdrive in both audiobook and eBook format. There are also titles like Simplicity: An Uncomplicated Guide to Being Successful and Achieving Your Full Potential by Richard Gerver available through Books 24×7.
The most important thing to remember is don’t let others determine what your best life is. Find what habits work for you and what routines fit into your lifestyle. What works for one person might not work for someone else. So take some time to focus on Living Your Best Life this month; and start creating healthier habits for the days, months and years ahead.
