As everyone is enjoying the festivities, are you silently smiling through your pain? If you are feeling the weight of always having to appear happy, pick up The Magic Mindset. Preeti Shenoy’s latest non-fiction title, by HarperCollins India, dismantles the old notion of practising consistent optimism, no matter what. Instead, it promotes a mindset that is largely built on the virtue of acceptance – one which acknowledges that the negative is an inevitable part of life, and therefore does not shy away from it. Shenoy lays down a few basic tenets to help cultivate a mindset that makes it easier to find our ‘happy place’ even when things do not go as planned. The bestselling writer supplements the text with interesting exercises that readers can practise themselves, making the book more engaging than the usual self-help title.
As the pandemic continues to take a toll on our physical and mental health, books like The Magic Mindset come as a comfort read – encouraging us to accept the uncertainty of the times, but also offering up the hope that eventually things will fall into place.
