What to Read: Recs for a Slower Lifestyle

ON March 26, 2020
What to Read

Wondering how to spend your time these days? We asked our teachers what they were reading. Finding inspiring and positive content can help you strike a better mental balance when dealing with the exceptional circumstances we find ourselves in these days. There is a tendency toward information overwhelm and it is easy to get bogged down with anxiety producing new articles and social media. Balance those tendencies with some media that inspires, educates, or simply allows you to transport yourself.

Here’s a list of some books our instructors cracked open recently. What are you reading?
