Behind every powerful and magnetic woman is a stack of inspirational reading material. Though each reserves a personal favorite, there’s one title that stands out from bookshelf to bookshelf. The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle is not the average ’self-help’ instruction manual, but rather a belief system intended to guide day-to-day living.
Tolle’s philosophy is simple: live in the present moment with intention and awareness, instead of losing yourself to thoughts of the past or future. The Power of Now conveys that every minute spent worrying about the future or regretting the past is a minute lost. The present, the now, is what ultimately shapes our lives.
This philosophy feels especially poignant today as we strive to keep up with the pace of modern demands. Applying Tolle’s teaching and anchoring ourselves in the present can help us feel happier, less anxious and more fulfilled. Whether you’re actively seeking a healthy dose of inspiration or merely looking to supplement your existing wellness routine, The Power of Now is one of our timeless favorites.
