I have fallen out of the habit of posting on my blog during the week, as I do my Sunday YOP update. But there are so many interesting things I’ve been listening to and watching I thought I should create a separate post for them. 🙂
First up is an audio book called “The Procrastination Cure”, which came as a “2 books in 1” audio file. I’ve already listened to the 2nd book twice! It talks about stress and I honestly think this book is life changing! Both books have really made me understand how my brain works and how my thoughts and habits contributed to me having a breakdown a few years ago. They talk about things and it’s like the authors were a fly on the wall of my life! I suspect I will listen to it a few times more because there are some really valuable lessons in there for me and I have already started to put a few in place. The narrator is a bit robotic in tone so that’s unfortunate.
Have you ever had this experience with a book? Like the author wrote it with you in mind?
Audible have some free Sleep Meditations that I have been doing at bedtime each night. They also have some free bedtime stories which have no beginning, middle or end so it doesn’t matter if you fall asleep, I haven’t tried those but the meditations are working well.
A couple of Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast were very interesting this week. One with Bill Gates talking about his book about “How to avoid a climate disaster” and another they had Ethan Kross talking about the inner chatter we have going on in our heads. I definitely have a very loud inner voice so I found that interesting.
A friend recommended a 30 day yoga routine on YouTube which I have been doing each morning. It is keeping me engaged because each day is different and it isn’t too long.
Finally, a lady from the Guild mentioned a programme about Vikings presented by Scottish archeologists Neil Oliver, “Vikings“. Its not a new series but was being re-shown on BBC Four. I find Vikings so interesting and this is a much less violent way of knowing more about them than watching the TV drama by the same name.
