Little ways to be you at your best, right where you are.
From the can-do entrepreneur Claire Diaz-Ortiz, The Better Life is a motivational memoir about little changes that make all the difference.
In winsome style, Claire offers vignettes from her life to yours. A top-level Twitter employee, world traveler, author, non-profit founder, and mom, Claire tries to make the most of every moment. In The Better Life, she shares stories and insights about balance, productivity, self-care, and other essentials for rocking it at life every day.
Take some advice from Claire: Say yes. Say no. Quit something. Take your mornings seriously. Make your weekends count. Write more. Worry less. Travel. Pray. Pause. Rest. Know your limits. Do Hatchi Patchi. Don't beat yourself up. Be still. Be thankful. Be you, but your best.
Read this book, and start living the better life you've been meaning to.
I really enjoyed this book! It's small in size and packed with interesting anecdotes, full of positivity, motivating thoughts, and ideas. I read it in one sitting.
The chapters are all varying lengths - some just a page, others a bit longer. I think the idea of the book is that it is easy to pick up and read no matter how much time you have, and you will be inspired.
To give you an idea here are some of the topics in the contents in no particular order:
Set your Intentions
Live through the hurt
Be open to see
Stop beating yourself up
Practice makes perfect
Find Peace around you
Track Your days
Learn the art of hospitality
Remember it's just stuff
And many more! Claire is a very well connected, blessed young lady who has had the privilege of many worldwide experiences, adventures and connections. I found the style of writing very easy to read and likable. Her thoughts are well rounded and solid.
I would recommend this book - it would also make a great gift for someone too.
