2023 in Books [Jan-March]. 📚

Here are the books I’ve read so far for 2023. If you recall my “goals” post for this year, I wanted to read at least ONE book per month. Anything more was just an added bonus.

For the first three months I managed to at least read TWO books. Of course, January was the impressive month with FOUR books because you know #newyears.


January

March

Don’t Worry: 48 Lessons on Relieving Anxiety from a Zen Buddhist Monk by Shunmyo Masuno

A Monk’s Guide to a Clean House and Mind by Shoukei Matsumoto


If you missed some of my thoughts on a Monk’s Guide to a Clean House and Mind, check it out HERE.

If I HAD to pick, I would have to say so far this year my top favorite book was The Art of Simple Living: 100 Daily Practices from a Zen Buddhist Monk for a Lifetime of Calm and Joy by Shunmyo Masuno. Coming in a close second would be Matsumoto’s cleaning guide for the house and mind.

Something in me was called to reread Joshua Becker’s Things That Matter. It put a bit more things into perspective for me between the way in which I balance my family, work and personal life.

Hence me writing THIS blog post on a few ways I’ve been trying to create balance to recover [and avoid] burnout.

Remember, there are no quick fixes or magical solutions.
