October Book Choice

It’s no surprise these past months have been really challenging for everyone. We’ve experienced all kind of situations; from having important plans cancelled, having our routine turned 180°, missing friends and family members or struggling with work or school, just to name a few. Change has been a constant variable in our day to day, no wonder why uncertainty around us has had the best of us at times. All of us have been tested in different ways, and we’ve prevailed, we’re here with a bunch of lessons learned, great number of memories that we’ll cherish for years and endurance that will stay with us forever. It’s been during these challenging times that I’ve had the chance to contemplate what really makes us happy and the role each of us play in achieving happiness.

Lately most of our conversations and meetings have to do with COVID-19, that is why this month’s reading was a no-brainer, our first book choice is The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living. This book is an easy read, a little guide full of advice and ideas that you can incorporate into your own life. Hope you enjoy the reading! 

Keep safe everyone.
