Slow

Simple Living for a Frantic World

by Brooke McAlary
Publisher: Sourcebooks

Free yourself from the frantic and embrace the joy of slow… 

After reading this book, you'll have an amazing list of ingredients that can help you create a meaningful life, too!" -The Minimalists Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus

"Finally, a slow living guide for the imperfect folks . . . Brooke McAlary's exuberant, honest words are a refreshing contribution to the slow living community. If you're seeking a simpler path, start here."-Erin Loechner, Blogger at DesignforMankind.com and author of Chasing Slow

Are you constantly striving to keep up with life's busy expectations? It's easy to feel consumed with the desire to "succeed" and "acquire", and miss the simple opportunities waiting for you to slow down: a walk in the forest, sharing laughter with family, a personal moment of gratitude… 

Once upon a time, it became clear to Brooke McAlary that the key to happiness was discovering a simpler, morefulfilling existence. She put the brakes on her stressful path, and reorganized her life to live outside the status-quo, emphasizing depth, connection and meaningful experiences. Alongside Brooke's affirming personal stories of breaking down and rising up, Slow provides practical advice and fascinating insights into the benefits and challenges of the slow life, such as:

-Decluttering to de-owning
-Messiness to mindfulness
-Asking why, to asking where to now?

Slow is an inspirational guide on creating a life filled with the things that really matter, and is meant for anyone seeking peace, meaning, and joy in their otherwise rapid lives. Slowly-of course.

The Five Thieves of Happiness

The Five Thieves of Happiness

by John Izzo
Publisher:

Stop Seeking Happiness; Just Get Out of Its Way!
 
Happiness is our natural state, for each of us and for humanity as a whole, argues John Izzo. But that happiness is being stolen by insidious mental patterns that he depicts as thieves: the thief of control, the thief of conceit, the thief of coveting, the thief of consumption, and the thief of comfort. He discovered these thieves as he sought the true source of happiness during a year-long sabbatical, walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain and living in the Andes of Peru. This thoughtful and inspiring book describes the disguises these thieves wear, the tools they use to break into our hearts, and how to lock them out once and for all. Izzo shows how these same thieves of personal happiness are destroying society as well. This book will help us all discover, develop, and defend the happiness that is our true nature while creating a world we all want to live in.

Resilience

Resilience

Hard-Won Wisdom for Living a Better Life

by Eric Greitens
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

In 2012, Eric Greitens unexpectedly heard from a former SEAL comrade, a brother-in-arms he hadn't seen in a decade. Zach Walker had been one of the toughest of the tough. But ever since he returned home from war to his young family in a small logging town, he'd been struggling. Without a sense of purpose, plagued by PTSD, and masking his pain with heavy drinking, he needed help. Zach and Eric started writing and talking nearly every day, as Eric set down his thoughts on what it takes to build resilience in our lives.
 
Eric's letters-drawing on both his own experience and wisdom from ancient and modern thinkers-are now gathered and edited into this timeless guidebook. Greitens shows how we can build purpose, confront pain, practice compassion, develop a vocation, find a mentor, create happiness, and much more. Resilience is an inspiring meditation for the warrior in each of us.
