My love for reading began at an early age. My mother helped foster it by bolstering me with endless books and magazines. As growing up, we enjoyed our time together by exploring the bookshelves at the library and bookstores. One of my fondest memories was our weekly visits to Barnes & Noble. We would often spend hours there, leaving with a smile and an armful of books!
My love for reading has deepened over the years and one of my favorite publishing companies, Simon & Schuster, always has the right book at the right time. Their sister company, Adams Media, has a vast selection of lifestyle books based on everything from relationships to parenting and mindfulness and self-care.

→ Take a break from social media. Social media is the ubiquitous thing that connects us all yet keeps us apart! While there’s nothing wrong with using social media, it doesn’t hurt to take a break from it every now and then.
→ Acknowledge and confront your negative thoughts.
→ Have you ever traveled by yourself? Solo traveling is liberating and life-changing! It is one of the best and easiest ways to help boost self-gratitude.
→ Work on being less picky.
→ Volunteer your time and services to a good cause.
→ Drop your “should” statements.
→ Check your self-criticism at the door.
→ Go for a peaceful walk. Going for a walk is one of my all-time favorite activities that I love. I don’t always have the time to go for a morning walk, but it provides a rewarding feeling whenever I do. I deem it nature’s therapy since I’m always at the most serene and peaceful state of mind when walking. It has been proven that going for walks can reduce stress and foster creativity.
