I cannot tell you how much books have meant to me over the years as I've dealt with the various struggles and losses of life.  As an author, I can now let you know from personal experience how very much authors of books care about their readers and their lives.  Even if you can't or don't want to talk to anyone about your problem, never underestimate the power of books. They can be powerful teachers and comforting friends. Why not benefit from those who have walked the road before you? Here is a list of books that can help you find the happiness on the other side of the hit you’ve taken.

Starting a Meditation Practice

Taking time to quiet your mind and go within can be one of the best gifts we can give ourselves. Don’t have an hour a day to devote to yoga and meditation? That’s okay; you may be surprised by how little time it takes to make time for yourself to begin bouncing back by tapping into the power of a centered and connected mind. Check out these books on beginning a meditation practice.
