How to Stay Sane in a Crazy World Book Review


 About the Book
 Has it just been one of those days? Or months? Or years? I was once in a yoga class (a rare yoga class, I’ll admit), where the teacher had us all exhale again and again and again, until—as she put it—we’d let go of today, the last month and, by the end, “the whole of last year.” We all collapsed in very non-yogic giggling. But we knew what she meant. Exhale. Let it all go.     To exhale, I stop “doing Life” and start to wind down and engage in soothing rituals like lighting a candle.     And then I take to my bed.     Perhaps you need to do the same? . . .     Gather up your pillows and a box of Kleenex, a novel and some tea . . . sink back against those soft pillows and dream. It’s time to rest, rejuvenate, and appreciate just how glorious life really is.

My Review

This is a perfect book for fresh ideas. Short and simple the most any one page has is a paragraph with a unique picture. The book is split up between morning, afternoon, and evening. I enjoyed the pictures and I thought many of the ideas where creative if you need a "pick me up" or fresh perspective. I really loved the back of the book where the author puts some of her favorite books, movies, songs, etc. Also, I think the start of the book where the author talks about a diagnoses with cancer changes the viewpoint on the book and makes it more personable. I recommend if you want a small go to uplifting book.
