Good Reads for a Mindset Shift

Here are a few good books that opened up my mind in different ways, whether it was in regards to how I view the current food system, my emotional health, or my overall outlook on life. See if any float your boat. 

The Alchemist:

This is an oldie but goody. It tells an inspiring story of finding one's purpose in life. 


Breakfast with Buddha: 

You don't necessarily have to be interested in Buddhism to enjoy this book, as it's actually very entertaining. It's a story of a man who has no interest in learning from an OG Buddhist, but thanks to his sister, he doesn't have much of a say in the matter. 


The Four Agreements:

If you don't read the book, here are the four agreements to take away...It does go into some ways to break old habits, but in a nutshell: 

1) Be impeccable with your word
2) Don't take anything personally
3) Don't make assumptions
4) Always do your best
