A state of equilibrium in one’s life is far more valuable than we realize. Through his part-memoir, part self-help book, Shayamal Vallabhjee employs his knowledge of psychology and spirituality to help the reader attain a sense of balance in their life.
Breathe Believe Balance is a powerful concoction of the author’s anecdotes, textual references, personal development activities, and theories along with well-thought-out deductions.
I normally don’t read self-help books frequently. But sometimes a good one comes along and you can’t refute that they are actually quite helpful.
What worked for me and I’d suggest for you as well is that take a chapter at a time and absorb what the author has to say. It will definitely help clear your perceptions regarding certain facets of life.
Another thing I appreciate is that there are a lot of snippets that are highlighted in the entire book. And even various activities that you can do to get started towards bringing balance in your life. So when you’re in need of some introspection, just pick a random page.
Sometimes even reading a single page was a bit overwhelming for me, not in a bad way; just that there’s so much to think about. So give yourself and this book the time needed to work the magic.
One thing I didn’t LOVE reading about was the element of sports that was woven into certain sections. But that’s because I personally am not interested in sports.
On the whole, I surely see myself picking up this book to implement the tips/ prompts that the author provides.
