“To feel hope you don‘t need to be in a great situation You just need to understand that things will change Hope is available for allYou don‘t need to deny the reality of the present in order to have hope you just need to know the future is uncertain and life contains dark and light we can have our feet right here where we are while our minds hear another octave we can be half inside the present half inside the future half in Kansas half in oz”

Areader2 This is about the song Somewhere over the Rainbow, how it is a song of hope! 3w

This collection of wise and encouraging notes on life really does what it says on the box! I came to this after reading and loving and HUGGING Haig‘s novel The Midnight Library and have found here a nonfiction parallel, perfect to have around in times of need.

A book like this is what we need from time to time to gently remind us to keep going.

"The best thing about rock bottom is the rock part. You discover the solid bit of you. The bit that can't be broken down further. The thing that you might sentimentally call a soul. At our lowest we find the solid ground of our foundation. And we can build ourselves anew."

I picked this up in the store on a whim, and fell in love. Each section is a warm reminder to take care.

I miss Gladstones Library and the lovely Littens I spent the last weekend with. And I miss a fire at night and somebody bringing me tea. 😁 #retreathangover

When the author was younger he suffered from depression and this book is a collection of thoughts, meditations and quotes that help keep him 'afloat'. It is a short self help type book that would make a good gift for anyone going through rough times. They were several memorable lines that I will try to live by...including “Get a routine baggy enough to live in.“ I gave it 4/5 stars.

I went into this with low expectations. I thought it would be full of hollow quotes but I loved it. I listened to it while walking the dog & it honestly felt like I was calling a best friend/therapist/life coach. It is full of perspective, advice, and shared experiences. I highly recommend it to anyone suffering with anxiety, depression &/or panic attacks. It really is a comforting book to listen to.

Oh how I love this sweet, yet deep book! The perfect anecdote for a worried mind. I love Matt Haig, though I have read Reasons to Stay Alive yet. So many of these tiny little “chapters” are frame-able.

Desha What a beautiful picture...very comforting! ☺️♥️📚 5mo

This book is like a warm hug or like having hot chocolate in front of a fireplace on a cold winter night.
I liked the play list that Matt Haig has shared. The book can be read a bit at a time and savoured.

I haven‘t actually read any Matt Haig NF (I‘ve read The Midnight Library) and I really think that I need to.

This book is a collection of thoughts and quotes that Matt has collected over the years. I know a few a Littens have already posted the Pizza quote but I love it! The other quote really resonated right now for me too.

I read this from Libby and it would definitely be better as a hard copy so that you can dip into it when needed.

Caroline2 Yeah, I‘ve loved Matt Haig‘s nf books. Esp Reasons to stay alive. It‘s part self help but mainly a memoir of his own breakdown. It‘s so good. 👍 (edited) 6mo
squirrelbrain I definitely need to try one of his other books @caroline2 6mo

I‘m still afraid to read The Midnight Library (will it live up to the hype?) so am going with this instead.

My title: Zen and the Art of Being

THE COMFORT BOOK is Haig‘s life raft: it‘s a collection of notes, lists, and stories written over a span of several years that originally served as gentle reminders to Haig‘s future self that things are not always as dark as they may seem - incorporating a diverse array of sources from across the world, history, science, and his own experiences.

The sky isn‘t more beautiful because if you have perfect skin. Music doesn‘t sound more perfect if you have a six pack. Dogs aren‘t better company if you‘re famous. Pizza tastes good regardless of your job title. The best of life exists beyond the things we are encouraged to crave.

This book is like being wrapped up in a warm blanket with a cup of hot chocolate.

Full disclosure. I love Matt Haig. I think he‘s an awesome human. I love how open and honest he is about his mental health. How he inspires others to do the same. I love his simple outlook on life.
So yes, I loved this book of quotes, essays, the odd recipe, playlists etc. It‘s a book to dip in and out of, to gift a friend having a bad day, week, year. As someone who has suffered panic attacks since my teens, I found this helpful & quite lovely.
