With our days all starting to blend together and the unknown state of the world, it can be easy to slip into a slump. I have had my moments of feeling unmotivated and uninspired. We never really know what our future holds, and we are never really in control of what happens to us, but right now that feels magnified. Plans that we have made have been cancelled on us, routines that were working for us are now gone.
There is something about reading a book that always seems to help me with the kick in the pants inspiration I need to get back on track. You are forced to slow down a bit when you’re reading, press pause on the constant stream of media, and immerse yourself in something.
If you are looking for a new read, this list of books will give you some inspiration to be better and maybe give you a kick in the pants to get moving on your goals and dreams! Some of these are favorites of mine, and some are on my list to read!
