Benefits of Reading About Adventure!

You don’t always have to read books on mindfulness to increase your overall happiness and life satisfaction. Reading others’ stories can give people insight and expand their horizons. A study in 2012 found that those who read about someone else’s “awe-inspiring” story had decreased stress, increased satisfaction, and volunteered more often! So, pick up an adventure book next time you are at the library. Here are some personal favorites: 

  • Tracks by Robyn Davidson
  • Ghost Rider: Travels On The Healing Road by Neil Peart
  • Tuk-Tuk To The Road by Antonia Bolingbroke-Kent
  • Lost City of the Monkey God by Douglas Preston
  • The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit by Michael Finkel 

Happy reading!
