Audible Recommendation – Everything is F*cked: A book about Hope by Mark Manson

I have previously listened to The Subtle Art of not giving a fuck by Mark Manson so when I was looking at audio books to download ready for my holiday I decided to give another of his books ago. This time is was Everything is F*cked: A book about Hope by Mark Manson.

In Everthing Is F*cked, it looks at the flaws within each individual self to the endless problems taking place in the world. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. He challenges our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom—and even of hope itself.

The was the first book I read on holiday and I really enjoyed it. I really enjoy books that help me to question what’s going on in the world and especially ones that help me to open my mind up further.

The audio book in around 7 hours long which for myself it a good length for an audio book because sometimes if it is over the 10-12 hour mark by the end I am getting little bit bored and I am eagerly ready to move onto the next audio book.

Overall I would recommend giving this book a try.

 

Audible Recommendations – Can’t Hurt Me – David Goggins

I have been listening to quite a few audible books lately and therefore I have decided to share the ones with you that I have enjoyed. The audible book that I have enjoyed the most is “Can’t Hurt Me” by David Goggins.

For David Goggins, his childhood was surrounded by poverty, prejudice and physical abuse; but through self discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a U.S. Armed forces icon and one of the worlds top endurance athletes.

He reveals throughout the book that most of us only tap into 40% of our capabilities throughout our lives. He states that anyone can push past the pain to reach their full potential.

I really enjoyed this audio book and would recommend it to anyone. It is highly motivating and inspiring. The things that David Goggins has been able to achieve is outstanding and they are things that many people don’t even dream of doing as they seem impossible.

This audio book really motivated me and when it talked about the 40% rule it really made me think about what I could be possible and what I could achieve if I was able to access my full potential.

This book really is a must read.

 

Couch to 5K

I have recently made the decision to start to improve my health and fitness and therefore I decided to do this firstly by trying to complete the couch to 5k app.

I did my first run today which consists on a 5minute warm up walk; then 7 x 60second runs with 7x 90second walks in between and then a 5 minute cool down walk . The runs and walks are alternated all the way through and it total I did 8 minutes of running. over the 9 week program you increase your running time and decrease the walking time.

I have previously used a similar app quite a few years ago and decided to give it another go as it is really enjoyable and also achievable enough so it doesn’t make me feel out of my depth.

I decided to do my run today along the canal as it is quite a flat run and I enjoy being beside the water as it is quite relaxing.

I have 2 more runs of the same routine to complete this week before moving on the next stage next week.

I would highly recommend the One You Couch to 5k app.
