In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction by Gabor Mate
Addiction can be a taboo topic, but that just means we need to talk about it more. This might be the best book on addiction I've ever read. Mate writes about his experiences as a pschiatrist in such an honest, relatable way. He also humanizes his patients in a way that is both heartwarming and vitally important.
Think on These Things by Jidda Krishnamurti
This is the kind of book I wish they made me read in school. The amount of wisdom seeping from these pages is unbelievable. If you want to read something that will make you think, this book is for you.
I can't remember how I came across this site, but I'm glad I did. Their tagline is, "Building courage in kids and teens," and I find the site design to be beautiful.
How can you go wrong with beautiful mission and beautiful design?
Jeste-Thomas Wisdom Index
I learned about this wisdom questionnaire this week, and I found the results to be very interesting. I'm not sure if it's possible to boil how wise you are down into a simple survey, but it's still worth the two minutes it takes to fill it out.
I got a score of 4.57 out of 5.
I used the free trial a bit, but I ended up not paying for it because I prefer to listen to actual songs when I work. BUT...I know people who swear by this tool.
If you've ever had trouble focusing while getting work done, Brain.fm uses science-backed techniques to give you music that helps you focus for long periods of time. Worth a listen.
