Time to Unplug From The Internet With These Relaxing Activities

Autumn In Your Arms
Beauty Brite Disclosure
I’ve found myself constantly on the computer or on my phone, which makes it harder for me to fall asleep at night. In fact, my sleeping pattern has been so horrible that I’m falling asleep while I’m working. So, I decided it was about time I unplug from the Internet. Not all day or anything, but after a certain time I’ll fully log off and do some of these relaxing things.

New Books For Summer Reading

While the June weather in Chicago doesn’t seem to match up with typical summer, it’s here! Which means it’s time to pick out a couple of books that I plan on reading during my free time this summer. I spend a lot of time working, freelancing, and working on my blog that I neglect my books and being able to relax a little bit before I go to bed.

Not So Light Summer Reading List

Not So Light Summer Reading List-Books-Chasing the Merry-Go-Round by Kelly Bargabos---Sanity Lost and Found by Tarra Judson Stariell-Elevate by Joseph Dietsch

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

Books, books, and more books. Sounds pretty awesome to me. If I ever run out of books to read, I think I might die! LOL  Seriously, you know that fun riddle about what one or two or three things you’d take if you had to be stranded on a desert island? For me, I would have to have at least one book. Period, end of discussion. Books are essential for me.

I read all kinds, too. Fiction, non-fiction, horror/fantasy, memoir, biography, self-help, romance, history, political — you name a genre I’ve probably read something that falls within it. I’ve been reading a lot of fiction lately, some of which I’ve discussed on Beauty Brite in my articles. I’m itching to read the new Stephen King book, The Outsider, but haven’t started it yet.

I’ve recently read a few books that are non-fiction and that fall into the self-help genre. So, today I’m sharing this short list with readers, along with my thoughts on each.

Chasing The Merry Go Round by Kelly Bargabos — A fascinating look into the life of someone realizing the special needs a family member has and learning to provide them with the care they need.

Sanity Lost & Found by Tarra Judson Stariell — A true story of cult brainwashing and recovery, how to recognize one’s vulnerability to it as well as how to how to recover and heal from the experience. Forgiveness is a big theme in this book, both of ourselves and of others. I kept thinking of one person in particular while reading this book. She could definitely benefit from reading it as she has spent most of her life feeling victimized by the men in her life.

Elevate The Essential Guide To Life by Joseph Deitsch — Full of common-sense wisdom, this is one of the few self-help books I’ve read that I believe has the potential to really help. It not only explains why we do (or don’t) do things, but contains actionable steps to take to make your life your own and the best it can be. [read more]

Between Lost and Found: A Novel of Love in South Dakota

Beauty Brite Disclosure

The story of a far-gone city girl traveling to a new place–and discovering redemption, and herself, along the way–is by no means an original one. However, such a plot-line deserves some repetition. It’s satisfying, sweet, and serves as a more tangible example of the search for self that we all strive towards. So, knowing that the book Between Lost and Found (whose heroine, Janelle Marshall, finds love and closure while searching for her missing grandfather in a little South Dakota town called Mammoth Falls) would involve said plot-line, I was excited and pleased to read the story. Shelly Stratton’s book, Between Lost and Found, has all the pleasurable cliches of a typical find-yourself-novel–but none of the typical brattiness that also comes along with it.
