This book was great! Being born and raised in Pittsburgh, exposure/love for Mister Rogers‘ Neighborhood is as automatic as becoming a Steeler fan. That said, I learned so much about Fred Rogers and it‘s made me more appreciative of his great talents. And listening to the audiobook narrated by LeVar Burton from Reading Rainbow just added to my childhood nostalgia.

Listening this on audio and I‘ve learned so much. Like, Fred Rogers was red and green colorblind. Or that he‘d lived in Toronto which is where he first got in front of the camera in the way he did for Mister Rogers‘ Neighborhood. It‘s all been so interesting!

TheDaysGoBy @Addison_Reads I‘m really enjoying it so far. Also having LeVar Burton from Reading Rainbow read it has just added to the experience…and the childhood nostalgia I‘m getting 😂 5d

This book was everything I didn‘t know I needed. I‘ve recently realized some things I‘ve experienced are related to stress, and this book really gave me some great tools to hopefully - finally - get a real handle on my stress. I highly recommend to anyone who needs some help dealing with stress.

#TodayILearned that practicing a skill doesn‘t matter if you don‘t sleep because it‘s not the practice that makes you better but the sleep after you practiced.

One chapter to go with this one. I‘ve gotten so many great things to work on/think about!

3. My haircut next week. Just basically freshening it up and not doing anything crazy, but it makes me feel so great after!

Never have I taken so many notes on the first chapter of a #selfhelp book before, but everything just made so much sense! I learned about the stress response cycle, how to complete it, and what happens when you don‘t. I‘ve always heard stress can kill you, but I feel now I really understand the why behind it! Loving this so far!

Somehow I‘d made it through high school without reading this which is how I‘m only reading it now at 31. It was good! Took me a while to finish just because I‘ve had so much going on the last month, so that made it harder. I did really enjoy it though - the characters were great and the writing was superb

Such a fun giveaway and big congrats to @MatchlessMarie for your milestone!

My spooky plans this year are to go trick or treating with my nephews. One recently turned 2 and the other is almost 4. They‘re really into everything spooky - the 4 year old is being a ghost 😂 The whole family is looking forward to it because they‘re so excited

Listened to the audiobook at work. I found all of his tips very interesting/helpful. I‘m actually in the process of looking for a new PCP so that section was pretty helpful. I do think everyone should be more engaged in their health care and not just always go along with whatever their doctor says.

Quite a few Littens had recommended listening to this one, and I have to completely agree. I feel like this book was made to be listened to. It was so engaging, but I‘m also completely addicted to podcasts so this was right up my alley. Sadie was such a unique character and I enjoyed her so much. This was one of my most fun, engaging reads of the year. I zoomed through it

Just finished listening to the audiobook. This is between a pick and a so-so for me. Her story is incredible - I don‘t know how she lived through as many horrible things as she did. And her message to stand up and speak out - to take the steps to change Hollywood and the world was nice. There was something about the tone of the book that didn‘t always hit me the right way. It was an interesting listen but that opening song was crazy 😂

Finished this book in a #favoritereadingspot in my house. Overall, it was interesting and the characters were pretty likable. I honestly was a bit lost at the end as to what‘d happened in the incident in the past. Unique take on a ghost story but didn‘t wow me.

Not the traditional #selfhelpbook and I‘ve rec‘d this before, but it doesn‘t hurt to repeat. This book helps you hone your survival instincts - helping you tell the difference between those signals and unnecessary worry. Also provides tips for how to read people/know when they‘re trying to manipulate you. A must read
