Wowza! This book was an unexpected combination of a deep dove into moving out of burnout and the underlying societal systems that drive us into it. A very thorough exploration of patriarchy and it‘s effects on modern day women.

Turn tedious tasks into meaningful rituals. Bring joy to something you don‘t enjoy doing. Each time you complain find something to be grateful about in the situation. Give yourself permission to fail when you try something new. Don‘t try to power through, work for a set amount of time & then take a break. Aim for residual results, not linear results.

“Getting clear on what done looks like doesn‘t just help you finish, it helps you get started.”

The Comfort Book | Matt Haig

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A friend lent me this book, but I ended up buying my own copy because I can see myself finding comfort in its pages during difficult times (and wanting to loan or gift it to others). It‘s packed with short passages that draw from topics like poetry, philosophy, science, history, and personal essays, all aiming to remind us there is always hope. I wanted to savor this book slowly, reading only a bit at a time to let the words digest.

Meh. Maybe not for me.

Feelings shouldn‘t be judged as either good or bad. Feelings are emotional energy; they are not personality traits.

I have a little bit of resistance to Beene Brown for not better reason than so many people like her, but I enjoyed this and thought there were some interesting insights here.

jimfields3 Your reason resonates with me, too! I find Brown thought-provoking, and this is in my TBR pile. Thanks for your feedback! (edited) 1w
EvieBee Hmm. Same reason I haven‘t read her yet! Seems like a good place to start! 1w

Richard gives examples of what his patients go through with their depression and psychoanalyze them. He explains causes of depression and explains what therapy he gives them. He teaches coping strategies and shows people what they can‘t see due to their depression. He also includes lessons from his own depression. He evaluates treatment. He shows what kinds of thoughts lead to or worsen depression and how to change them. Good book.

It was a bit difficult for me to rate this book because there are some really interesting stories and lessons in here, but I didn't enjoy it as much as the previous one of his I've read, and I also know how popular this one is, at least in Croatia. Nevertheless, I still think this is an interesting read and I understand why so many people love it. If you want some life lessons told in a kind and friendly manner, I highly recommend it. 📚📚🤗

Found this book through another book I was listening to…don‘t remember why 🤔🤔 Plus side, it‘s very short only 6 hours at regular speed. The info is pretty basic but maybe how Sincero presents it will resonate with you. A LOT of focus on manifesting if that‘s your jam.
