Summer is the perfect time to relax and recharge. Whether you’re lounging by the pool, taking a long walk on the beach, or just sitting on your porch for some peace and quiet, don’t forget to bring along a good book! Reading can be one of the most calming activities out there, and it can help you clear yourself from all of life’s stressors. Here are some books to read this summer that will help you relax and decompress.
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle This book has been around for years, but it’s still relevant today. It’s a great reminder that we should focus on the present moment instead of worrying about what might happen in the future. It encourages readers to meditate and practice mindfulness in order to stay connected with their true selves and gain clarity about their purpose in life. Recognised as one of the most significant spiritual books of recent years, The Power of Now is full of wisdom that will help you find inner peace and relaxation no matter where you are or what’s going on around you.
Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
If you’re feeling stuck or uninspired, this is the perfect book for you. It encourages readers to take risks, explore creativity, live courageously, and create something beautiful in the world — no matter how small it may seem at first. Filled with personal stories from Gilbert’s own life as well as inspiring quotes from other authors and thinkers throughout history, Big Magic will help you relax your mind and get creative, while still feeling motivated to make something great out of your summer days.
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Upby Marie Kondo
Whilst not necessarily a “relaxing” read, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up can certainly help you feel more relaxed once it’s finished and set your up for success for the year ahead! Kondo breaks down her famous “KonMari” method into easy-to-follow steps so that readers can declutter their homes quickly without getting overwhelmed or discouraged along the way. Not only does tidying up bring an immediate sense of calmness but it also helps create space for new possibilities in our lives so we can really make use of our summertime freedom!
Summer is a great time for relaxation — both physically and mentally — so make sure to pick up one (or all) of these books before hitting the beach this year! Each one offers something different but they all have one thing in common: they’ll help you detox from everyday stressors while finding inner peace throughout your summer adventures.
Grab your sunscreen, sunglasses, and don’t forget your favourite book. Happy reading!
