These two books I read many years ago has shaped and molded how I live my life everyday still. They are not nonchalantly sugar coated; it might take you awhile to get through them, but it will enrich your life.
Ominvore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan.
If you find ourself outraged by unhealthy formulas in nail polish, be prepared to be equally outraged by food politics and chemically engineered food. My husband and I have been living in Michael Pollan’s world for the past five years. Many of you wanted to know how I stay so thin from the food pictures I had posted? Use this book as a dictum; incorporate his platitude to your life—it really works.
The Power of Now by Eckart Tolle.
Because the past has no power over you. It’s already been done. You worry about the future before it even happens and then you forget where you are in this very moment that matters the most. This book is nourishment to your spirits and healthy mind. To incorporate this book into my life it took me years— to stop imaginary mind chatters that often take me hostage and to finally learn and know what is now, what is present and what is real. I still have to step back and rewire my active mind—a pesky reality check that grounds me.
