The Purpose Handbook; Eloise Skinner

It’s Monday morning, 9am. How do you feel?

Imagine waking up to start another week. In a perfect world, how would you like to feel? Maybe you imagine feeling motivated and energized. Maybe you imagine starting your week with a sense of purpose, peace and intention.

The goal of this book is simple: to help you live with a sense of purpose. Part-manual, part-manifesto, this book is not a quick fix for happiness; it’s not a five-day plan promising a fast result. Instead, it’s a companion, your personal guide to navigating your own sense of purpose as it evolves throughout your life.

Struggle: the surprising truth, beauty and opportunity hidden in lifes sh*ttier moments; Grace Marshall

Struggling? You’re in the right place.

In a world that’s obsessed with fast hacks, quick wins, and Instagram-perfection (cue “Everything is Awesome”), struggle has become a taboo. A sign that something’s gone horribly wrong. But what if we’ve got it all wrong about getting it wrong?

What if struggle isn’t a battle to fight, a trap to avoid, or a sign of weakness? What if struggle is precisely where the magic happens – where we do our best, most important work?

Whether you’re wading in treacle, waiting for the storm to pass or just damn tired of the hustle, this thought-provoking exploration will shine a surprising new light on the truth, beauty and opportunity hidden in life’s shittier moments.

The Art of Enough; Becky Hall

Ever feel like you aren’t Enough? Overwhelmed by too many demands? Concerned about over-consumption and the climate crisis?

You’re not alone. The Art of Enough is the challenge of our age.

In a world full of pressure to be more, do more and consume more, this practical guidebook will help you find your own version of Enough. Enough is a springboard for self-belief, a healthy work pace and sustainable living, so you can move from striving to thriving.

Weaving together ideas, stories and practices, The Art of Enough offers seven ways to ease away from the pull of scarcity and excess, towards flourishing with Enough; finding the balance and boundaries we all need for ourselves and for our world.
