The writing style of these 365 meditations is so eloquent that you can actually feel your body relaxing…I also found myself nodding in agreement every other minute. It’s relatable, insightful, and, most of all, deeply spiritual. Who doesn’t want that? Thubten Chodron is a Buddhist nun who founded Sravasti Abbey, a monastery in Washington state, and her Awaken Every Day is the ideal guide to understanding our deeper thoughts, behaviours and actions. This Buddhist reflection of “inviting mindfulness and joy” carries a strong and successful message explaining how maintaining positivity, both towards yourself and others, is beneficial to balancing a healthy mental and emotional life.
