Life Is a Verb: 37 Days to Wake Up, Be Mindful and Live Intentionally

Life Is a Verb: 37 Days to Wake Up, Be Mindful and Live Intentionally by Patti Digh
Within these pages—enhanced by original artwork and wide, inviting margins ready to be written in—Digh identifies six core practices to jump-start a meaningful life: Say Yes, Trust Yourself, Slow Down, Be Generous, Speak Up, and Love More. Within this framework she supplies 37 edgy, funny, and literary life stories, each followed by a “do it now” 10-minute exercise as well as a practice to try for 37 days—and perhaps the rest of your life.

...how to live your life better - not necessarily more organized or efficient or more anything...The writing exercises are excellent, bite-sized, and spur you to much deeper consideration of the topics....funny, real, down-to-earth and extremely moving.

...a wonderful treat! Good exercises, stories, and examples. Reading it will help you appreciate just how much can be gained through living with intention. It’s also a lot of fun.
