SRQ Book Club: Your Time to Thrive by Marina Khidekel and the Editors at Thrive Global

Arts & Culture

BY ROXANNE BAKER, BOOKSELLER AT BOOKSTORE1 SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY APR 2, 2021

The Mindfulness section at BookstoreOne Sarasota has seen an influx of new releases, all claiming how to re-start, re-new, etc. Yet Your Time to Thrive: End Burnout, Increase Well-Being, and Unlock Your Full Potential with the New Science of Microsteps has such a perfect baby step one size fits all approach that, if applied, can cure whatever ails you.

While each chapter focuses on different aspects of one’s life: Nutrition, Movement, and Creativity, just to name a few...a recurrent theme is joyously prevalent. Joyously since my unfortunate prediction came true, that 24/7 technology would become the bane of our existence. Your Time to Thrive corroborates this and better yet, Marina and her Thrive staff offer solutions to our false flopping claim that we can’t live without our devices. How to Thrive cleverly gathers numerous athletes (our hometown hero Tom Brady for one) and successful celebrities who are role models for device owners very capable of hitting Power Off.

Just one of the fantastic specifics is from Arianna Huffington, the original founder of Thrive. In the Purpose and Meaning chapter, Arianna uses a hurricane analogy, insisting that to find your strongest self, one needs to go inward (introspective or meditative equivalent) to the ‘eye’ of ourselves. With each chapter ending with a diary entry of someone’s microstep success story, this chapter’s cited power hack was a nightly journal entry that enabled the person to sleep better and be more at peace. In the six additional microsteps proffered as well, another doable idea is taking five minutes to list your core values, even posting them near your desk to remind you of what’s truly important. Even better, the fact that each chapter ends with an extra six introspective questions, further challenges the reader to take action.

Roxanne Baker is a Bookseller at BookStore1 Sarasota. Bookstore1Sarasota was opened in 2011 with one mission: to bring a high-quality independent bookstore to the Sarasota area. Their passion for the joy of books inspired them in the beginning and continues to drive them today.
