As some of you know, I've written for TinyBuddha.com in the past. Lori (the founder, for those unfamiliar with the site) has always been kind and helpful, so when she reached out to spread the word about her new book I was more than happy.
It's a nice coincidence too, because nearly every day I get emails from readers about self-love or relationship difficulties. For that reason I thought many of you would find this book very helpful.
It's truly a universal issue which so many could use guidance on, and the daily challenge-oriented structure of the book's wisdom serves as an incredibly practical guide to bringing more love into one's life- both self-love and love between people.
Here's a little about the book:
Tiny Buddha’s 365 Tiny Love Challenges
by Lori Deschene
From the founder of the popular online community TinyBuddha.com comes a daily inspirational guide of simple and creative challenges to help you actively spread love to those around you.
Tiny Buddha’s 365 Tiny Love Challenges is a simple guide to help readers pursue happy, connected lives and bring greater love into the world.
Each week begins with an inspirational message written by members of the TinyBuddha.com online community, followed by seven days of short challenges that focus on self-love, giving and receiving love in relationships and friendships, and spreading love in the world, such as:
- Write a list of three things you appreciate about yourself and place it somewhere in your home where you’ll frequently see it throughout the day
- Compliment someone who serves you in some way (for example, a waiter, barista, or bus driver) on how well they do their job
- Keep an eye out for someone who looks sad—a friend, coworker, or even stranger—and say something that might make them laugh or smile.
By using the book each day throughout the year, readers will learn to develop closer bonds in relationships, let go of anger and bitterness, better understand themselves and their loved ones, and turn strangers into friends.
