On Sunday it was ‘National Read A Book Day’. The idea of this day is that it is to encourage everyone to take a minute out of your day to enjoy reading a book. Reading can help improve memory, concentration and I personally use it as a stress reliever before bed.
Pleasure Pops can just bring about a sense of calm and joy. It’s whatever gives you a sense of well-being and contentment – even if just for a few minutes. This isn’t about exciting adrenaline pops or necessarily being on cloud nine, but calm and relaxing moments that just induce a sense of tranquillity and real contentedness e.g. a cup of tea under a blanket with a good book.
Please see below a few of my favourite books for you to give a go:
- Gut: The inside story of our body’s most underrated organ by Giulia Enders
- Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker
- Developing Resiliance by Michael Neenan
- The Little Big Things by Henry Fraser
