Books to read

It is crucial to stay at home those days. It is a tough time, and we, as humans, have to stay together, so our collective efforts, to stop and prevent Covid-19, pays off. To make good use of your time, I am suggesting three books to ready while you #StayHome. I have already enjoyed reading all those books, and I hope you all do too.

The happiness advantage

The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work

This book changed my perception of life and happiness. I am a believer, yet this book talks to my beliefs. I attended a seminar by the author “Shawn Achor,” and I can’t stress enough how smart and persuasive he is. You do not need to be successful to be happy. It is the other way around; happiness fuels success. I would recommend it to fuel your soul and mind.

The power of habit

The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

This is one of the classics that almost everybody recommends. The book describes the main features of a habit. How does it take form in our minds, simply, as the cue, the routine, and the reward. Using scientific facts and studies, the author delivers simple yet rich information on how to change your bad habits into good ones.

Big magic book

Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

This book by the fabulous Elizabeth Gilbert, the same author of the other top-selling book, “Eat, Pray, Love.” In this book, she challenges our creativity and what we can or can’t do. The book is like a story that turns your creativity mode on.

Those are my three favorite non-fictional books that I think will be good to read as you #StayAtHome. I have a longer list of books that I read. Please feel free to suggest your list of books, so we can all learn from each other.
