There are utter chaos and panic all around us. But the only possible way to pass difficult times like these is by maintaining positivity in the air all around (always remember, All Izz Well!). And the best way to do so is by reading motivational books as mentioned in Thinker Owl’s art and culture blog! All the bookworms out there, are you listening? So we bring you the list of 6 motivation books to uplift your “Mood O Meter” this Quarantine because let us face it: We all need a little extra motivation every once in a while (okay, probably more often than that!) Daring Greatly, by Brene Brown In your childhood days, you were probably taught that being vulnerable is, like, a bad thing? Well, guess what, apparently, it is not (surprised enough, go figure!) According to renowned author and researcher Brene Brown, in order to be brave, we must first be vulnerable. She wants to change the negative perception surrounding the highly misconstrue V-word and empower us to embrace that terrifying feeling in order to work toward your life goals! Practice some self-love, treat yourself once in a while, people! The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho How far can you go to pursue your dreams?! The story of the young shepherd boy who wished to travel the world in search of treasure but ends up discovering a vastly different type of riches than he initially imagined in the classic novel by renowned Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist will encourage you. It will motivate you to focus on the essential things in life that we missed out on in our usual life. Remember those times when we wanted to learn something new, an art, a new skill, or simply focus on self. But back then ‘time’ was something we allotted only to ‘important’ things, or what we felt were important as mentioned in Thinker Owl’s best art and culture blog! But now, how do we feel about your earlier priorities? Do they seem significant now? Stuck at home during Quarantine, we finally found the time to revisit old thoughts, habits, activities, and desires. Things finally came into perspective, and we should not let that go again (listen to your heart, always, folks!) The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo We all must have seen the Netflix series, now let’s read the book ( a pure gem!) Renowned author Marie Kondo is an absolute genius, and her book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” is full of life-altering hacks that you can apply not only to your cramped closet but also to your whole life (okay, we hear you!). Mind Hacking, by Jennifer Ferguson Have you ever felt like you literally cannot stop overthinking and overanalyzing every small incident and detail of your life ?! We all must have at some point in our life! And apparently, this is a bad thing according to the usual social norms! Shocking isn’t it? But fear not, Jennifer Ferguson is here to help through her book Mind Hacking, she will teach you how to recognize and break out of those bad habits, change your negative thoughts to positive ones, and build that absolutely necessary self-confidence to take on the world! Books can be considered as your best friends in every walk of your life! Do you know that satisfying feeling you get after you finish the last couple of pages of a really motivating book? You know, that sense of wonder, the goosebumps, the moment when your creativity seems to know no limits, and you imagine yourself facing all of your challenges – and succeeding ( adrenaline rush!). We feel that you should have that feeling more often!
