That Sounds Fun: The Joys of Being an Amateur, the Power of Falling in Love, and Why You Need a Hobby by Annie F. Downs
We know there are certain things we must have to survive--food, shelter, and safety to name a few. But there are also aspects of life that truly allow us to be joyful and fulfilled. For popular podcaster and bestselling author Annie F. Downs, fun is close to the top of that list. Few would argue that having fun doesn't enrich our lives, but so much gets in the way of prioritizing it. Tough days, busyness, and feelings that are hard to talk about keep us from the fun that's out there waiting to be found. With That Sounds Fun, Annie offers an irresistible invitation to understand the meaning of fun, to embrace it and chase it, and to figure out what, exactly, sounds fun to you--then do it! Exploring some research and sharing some thoughts behind why fun matters, she shows you how to find, experience, and multiply your fun. With her signature storytelling style and whimsical vulnerability, Annie is the friend we all need to guide us back to staying true to ourselves and finding the fun we need.

Living in the Moment: Don’t dwell on the past or worry about the future. Simply BE in the present with mindfulness meditations by Anna Black
Publisher: CICO Books
Most of us operate on auto-pilot much of the time, passing through the present moment with our mind either caught up in the past or straining toward the future. Through mindfulness meditation, an ancient Buddhist practice, Anna Black shows you how to intentionally pay attention to your daily experience. When we are not being mindful, we miss out on small moments that often are the most valuableâ€”be it a beautiful building that we pass on our journey to work, the taste and texture of lovingly prepared food, or the fact that we are needed by those we love the most. By being â€œmindlessâ€ we miss opportunities for personal growth by not being aware of our shortcomings or our inner strength, or by letting negative thoughts and emotions control us. In mindfulness meditation we pay attention to our ongoing experience whether it is pleasantâ€”such as appreciating a starry night sky; unpleasantâ€”a disagreement with a loved one; or neutralâ€”doing chores. We become aware of our habitual thoughts and behaviors and discover which are helpful and which are not. We learn to listen to the body and pick up warning signs of stress as well as tune in to our inner wisdom.
Stop Missing Your Life: How to be Deeply Present in an Un-Present World by Cory Muscara
Publisher: Da Capo Lifelong Books
What Tim Ferriss did for life design and Brene Brown did for vulnerability, Stop Missing Your Life will do for presence. In Stop Missing Your Life, mindfulness instructor Cory Muscara takes readers on a journey from "being present" to embodying "presence," helping peel back the layers that prevent us from being our full, honest, integrated selves in the world. Muscara explains that most of us are living on autopilot, often so guarded that we aren't experiencing the potential richness that life has to offer. Stop Missing Your Life reveals: How we build internal walls, which Muscara refers to as a "Pain Box," that both protect us and inhibit us from living a deeply connected and meaningful life A four-part FACE model (Focus, Allow, Curiosity, Embodiment) that helps chip away at the walls and find presence Why it's a risk to be our true selves in the world, and why safety (which does not mean comfort) is one of the missing ingredients to finding presence How we can make technology a part of our mindfulness practice--meditating with our devices, and also creating parameters around when and how we use technology Stop Missing Your Life ultimately teaches how we can create new behaviors, stop self-sabotaging our growth, and let go of the things that hold us back.
