Book 39 of Year 2017 – “Micro-Resilience” by Bonnie St. John and Allen P. Haines

Official Title – Micro-Resilience: Minor Shifts for Major Boosts in Focus, Drive, and Energy

Genre – Non Fiction

Book Length – 154 pages

Reading Time – 4.5 hours

Style/ Plot – Micro-resilience is a method of playing your A game by recharging your batteries as you go. It’s basically about making small adjustments.

What does that mean? Bonnie and Allen show the readers what Micro Resilience means by explaining 5 strategies that help us get back on track quickly and efficiently when we encounter forces that sap our energy.

I like the real life stories told which depict these 5 strategies in action. There are also tips given on how to implement these strategies to boost productivity.

Favourite Quote – “If we reduce the constant struggle against mental exhaustion, we can replace that exertion with fulfilling impulses like empathy, joy and creativity. We have the ability to address the challenges we face, envision a better life, set goals for the future and work toward those goals with grace and ease.

Recommendation – This book is great for anyone seeking ways to reduce the mental and physical toll of their daily activities at work, home, business and life in general. It provides practical guides and real life examples. My favourite technique was the deep belly breathing described as I could physically feel myself un-tense (I don’t know the appropriate word to use but you know what I mean).

Rating – 4.5/5
