After a recommendation from my cousin-in-law, I picked up Practicing the Power of Now. She had said that it put things into perspective for her and really helped her out. So I was interested to see what this whole thing was about.
I’m happy to say that I agree with her assessment. The book is fairly short so it’s not overwhelming like other self-improvement books tend to be. It’s short, easy to read and to the point. It essentially explains how you should focus on experiencing the now because you can’t do anything about the past or the future. For someone who obsesses a tad, this is a good perspective to practice. Of course, that’s the key, isn’t it? Practicing it. I am hoping to give it a try over the next few weeks to actually test if there’s any improvement. I’m also interesting in picking up the original book, The Power of Now, but that may have to wait a bit. I have plenty of books on the nightstand to get to.
