The Better Life
Thirty-something ways to improve your current life
From the person who got the pope to tweet, The Better Life is a motivational memoir about how little steps can mean big improvements.
In winsome prose, Claire Diaz-Ortiz coaches readers with vignettes from the common and uncommon corners of her life. A top-level Twitter employee, world traveler, author, and mom, Claire has had to work hard at intentionally steering her life. In The Better Life, she shares lessons, reflections, and life-hacks on the arts of balance, productivity, rest, and other essentials for rocking it at life every day.
Take some advice from Claire: Say yes. Say no. Quit something. Choose a word of the year. Read while waiting in line. Listen to audiobooks while sweeping. Take your mornings seriously. Make your weekends count. Write more. Worry less. Travel. Pray. Rest. Pause. Know your limits. Do Hatchi Patchi and don’t beat yourself up. Search for peace. Be still. Be thankful. Be you, but your best.
Read this book, and start living The Better Life you’ve been meaning to live.
