This book will turn your pain into a tool, your trauma into power, and your problems into slightly better problems.

‘The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*CK’ written by Mark Manson, is one of the funniest, light hearted, yet enlightening self-help books I have read. I was hooked after only reading a few pages and his humour really made it such an easy read. Even Ben enjoyed it! Full of relatable, amusing and insightful stories, this book helps to guide you towards living a good life through a ‘counterintuitive approach’. Each chapter begins with a story that illustrates the lessons you’re about to read and these were probably my favourite parts in the book and something I looked forward to whenever I started a new chapter!

It was so freeing and honestly uplifts you so that you feel lighter to go and take on the world – something that I think many of us need. It’s so easy to get weighed down by everyday life, so if you’re feeling the pressure, feel as though you don’t know what to do or are being held back by limiting beliefs and regret – then this book is for you.

Why I love it:

  • It’s packed with humour while still full of educational text
  • All the stories are so relatable and engaging
  • It’s an uplifting book that will help you to put those limiting beliefs to bed
  • Backed by academic research, the lessons in this book are straight to the point and easy to read
  • It’s empowering yet confrontational
  • Most importantly – it’s a super addictive read!

What it covers:

  • Why positivity is over-rated
  • Why happiness might be your problem
  • The value of suffering
  • How your choices impact your life
  • Why failure can be a good thing
  • Why you should start saying ‘no’
  • The importance of simply not always giving a f***
  • How to choose what to give a f*** about

Why you should read it:

  • It will help you move past regret
  • It encourages you to love your flaws and do things anyway
  • It emphasises your values and teaches you how to give your energy to things that uplift you
  • Sometimes, when you’re stuck in a rut, you need to do something completely different to get you out of that rut. This book is a perfect example of that – it goes against everything you have ever heard!

Takeaways:

We suffer for the simple reason that suffering is biologically useful. It is nature’s preferred agent for inspiring change.

The true measurement of self-worth is not how a person feels about her positive experiences but rather how she feels about her negative experiences.

We don’t always control what happens to us. But we always control how we interpret what happens to us, as well as how we respond.

The more we choose to accept responsibility in our lives, the more power we will exercise over our lives.
