Mental Break

And so today begins spring break! To me, spring break is a time to step away from school and the stress that comes with it. Break is a time to reflect, relax, and get out of the 30 degree weather we’ve been having at Purdue and trade it in for 70 and sunny. I’m going to soak up ( much needed ) Vitamin D and spend quality time with my friends. With a week off for spring break that also means a week off from blogging. But don’t worry, I have a list of three books for you to check out. These are great no matter where you’re going or what you’re doing this spring break.

Whether you’re traveling, staying at home, relaxing or working, a good book on the beach or at the end of the day is something we can all appreciate. They can be entertaining, motivating, inspiring or simply a break from reality. I’ve chosen books that will hopefully rejuvenate and inspire your mind, that way you can come back from spring break feeling refreshed and ready to take on the end of the semester.

  1. Capture Your Style by Aimee Song – $12.00

Tools of Titans…is the perfect read for obsessives wanting to boost their new year productivity. —Financial Times.

What do these people do in the first sixty minutes of each morning? What do their workout routines look like, and why? What books have they gifted most to other people? What are the biggest wastes of time for novices in their field? What supplements do they take on a daily basis?” – all questions that are answered by successful icons in this book.

If you want to grow your mind, then open this one.

3. Ego is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday – $15.00

Are you getting in the way of your own success? Read this book to find out.

This is a book I want every athlete, aspiring leader, entrepreneur, thinker and doer to read. Ryan Holiday is one of the most promising young writers of his generation.” —George Raveling, Hall of Fame Basketball coach, Nike’s Director of International Basketball.

I see the toxic vanity of ego at play every day and it never ceases to amaze me how often it wrecks promising creative endeavors. Read this book before it wrecks you or the projects and people you love. Consider it as urgently as you do a proper workout regimen and eating right.  Ryan’s insights are priceless.” —Marc Ecko, founder of Ecko Unltd and Complex.

You can buy all three of these books at Amazon. Also, they are all available for free 2-day shipping if you sign up as a student for Amazon Prime (I’m doing a 6 month free trial – highly recommend).

Check out these reads and I’ll see you back here in a little over a week!
