“When the world forces you to stay inside, you go within.”
– Carolina King
Now that we are forced to stay inside, it’s a great time to catch up on reading! I don’t know about you, but reading has been my lifeline lately because it helps me keep the fear at bay. And that’s why I wanted to share with you books that have been life changing for me and that have helped me improve my life, and even myself as a parent. Maybe you will feel inspired to read one of these books!
Now, more than ever, is important to be intentional and mindful about the content you’re consuming, especially because we are being bombarded with a lot of fear and uncertainty about our future. It’s important to keep yourself healthy both physically and mentally, and some books are great for that.
What a better time than now to read books that will inspire you, that will uplift you and that will help you get through these rough times. Maybe they will even help you dream of a better future.
These books have been life changing for me personally, but they have also changed the lives of thousands of people around the world. I have no doubt they will touch you in many ways. My hope is that they are as positively impactful for you as they were for me.
I consider these books to be spiritually inclined, although not religious. However, these books are best for people who consider themselves open minded. I also added, at the end, a few parenting books that have helped me changed my parenting ways.
I do want to add that although parenting books are super helpful, it was the spiritual books and working on myself that made me an even more patient and loving parent. Once I figured out what triggered me, why I did some things the way I did, it was a lot easier to stop myself from yelling, to understand my children in a different way and most importantly, to coach them to be the best version of themselves.
When you can’t read: audible books
Once I became a parent, reading become quite challenging for me and that’s when I discovered audible books. I now consume most of my books this way because I can listen to them while cooking, cleaning, or doing some other chores. All these books on this list are available on audible format, I have them all. Ha!
15 Uplifting and Life-Changing Books to Read During a Quarantine or When Things Get Rough
Before you start reading any of these books, I want to share with you what I tell my husband (he’s not as on board with these topics as I am): take what resonates with you and what serves you, and ignore the rest. Some of the tips on these books may seem unreal to some, but does that matter if it’s making your life better? Nope. The worst that can happen is that you lost some time reading, and the best is that you will feel more fulfilled about your life.
Now it’s your turn, if you’ve read a book that impacted your life in a positive way, leave it in the comments! Someone else might find it useful.
