2 books to make you feel good!

I’m not big on self-help books, but this week-end I found a new one that is really funny, and rediscovered an old time favourite. These books are the perfect books if you are looking for quick reads as they books that you can pick up, read a few pages, leave and come back to a few days later. They’ll give you a push in the back to get out there and do you!

The new one: Cours Toutoune, by Geneviève Gagnon: Unfortunately only available in French, this is a simple, colorful and super down to earth guide to running. Geneviève is super funny and lives by a simple philosophy: just get out there! Her tone is really encouraging while shattering all the excuses you might have for not exercising and taking care of yourself. Each page is a different tip so you can easily read a page once in a while when your motivation lowers and say goodbye to all those silly excuses!

The favourite: The Happiness Project, by Gretchen Rubin: This books hardly needs any introduction. For the little story, Gretchen decided to give herself a year to increase her happiness. This book is her tips, tricks and experiences with happiness. Each chapter tackles a different aspect of life and is filled with anecdotes, steps and ideas to make your life easier and ultimately make you a happier person. Her 10 rules are filled with common sense, yet are so relevant. I really recommend this book because there is something for everyone!
