Technology has given us little time to focus on what truly matters—mindfulness. Is there a time in your day that you’re just still, unoccupied by music or television or your phone? It’s about time you step back, reconnect with yourself, and find your inner peace. On that note, there are a couple of books on meditation that will help you achieve the inner peace that you have been looking for all along.
1. Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness In Everyday Life by Thich Nhat Hanh
Thich Nhat Hanh manages to interconnect different concepts on deeply resonating levels. For instance, he notes that poverty is based on the wealth of others. With this, he beckons his readers to turn away from being too goal-driven to being a humanitarian. As a Buddhist monk who was exiled in France in 1966, Nhat Hanh’s advice ranges from the practical to the philosophical.
