Posted on June 05 2019
Hello, fellow bookworms!
Summer is here, and with it, the summer adventures can begin! However, for a book lover, every time of the year is time for adventures. The adventures we go on are written on the pages of the books we passionately read and enjoy. But, sometimes, the forever long reading lists come to an end, and we have a mini existential crisis because there isn’t anything left to read. Don’t worry though if you are there, because we have an amazing book recommendation for you this week! We are talking about the Tao Of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff.
Why should you read the Tao Of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff?
One of the most common struggles in this busy world is definitely stress and anxiety. Wherever you turn, you can see stressed out people running around like crazy, trying to achieve the unachievable. Even you, have experienced it on your own skin. Lying awake at night, not being able to stop thinking and worrying, or even losing your mind over a stressful day at work. We’ve all been there. However, no matter how much you think, re-think, overthink, worry, stress and obsess sometimes you can’t change anything – no matter what you do, or think, or feel.
Sometimes it is better to detach, and not take things as personally, and just observe, and exist. Of course, this is easier said than done. But, Taoists have spent their whole life, being taught to a different mindset, and a different type of life. They live their lives not worrying about the future, and without regrets for the past. They are now, here at this moment, and they observe the beauty of life. And although to life in such a freeing way, it took them a lifetime to learn, you can learn a bit of it too in the Tao of Pooh.
The Tao Of Pooh is a book that explains the depths of Taoist lessons in simple terms. Filled with valuable lessons, that will help you improve your way of life, the western Taoist Pooh will lead you on your journey to becoming a better self:
The main problem with this great obsession for saving time is very simple: you can't save time. You can only spend it. But you can spend it wisely or foolishly.
