Design the Life You Love



I’m always looking for books that provide relevant information for life change and gratitude. I found a couple of fantastic books that would be a perfect gift for a person who is looking for more meaning in their life. Design The Life You Love by Ayse Birsel is a step-by-step guide to building a more meaningful future. The book provides a simple yet proven method of applying creative thinking and the design process to transform the thinking process. It is an inspiring book that is empowering and guides readers to create a better life. Design The Life You Love uses four simple steps to shift thinking to be more optimistic. The four stages include;

  • Taking the whole apart.
  • Forming a new point of view.
  • Putting it back together.
  • Giving it form.

The book is a wonderful way to stay in touch with your values and goals while maintaining balance in your life. This book is a fantastic tool to use to redesign your life to the life you want. The author Ayse Birsel hosts successful workshop and speaking engagements for large organizations such as Nike and Adobe. Her creative and interactive approach teaches others how to create a meaningful and fulfilling life. The book is a unique and interactive way to learn more about yourself and the way you think. I love the fact that it is interactive with questions, guidance, list and more. It is a wonderful guide that gives you the tools to create the life you want.

Instant Happy Journal

Another inspirational book gift idea is Instant Happy Journal by Karen Salmansohn. The journal is full of happiness prompts, motivational quotes, scientific studies and thought-provoking questions. The journal offers 365 days of inspiration, gratitude, and joy. The thought-provoking prompts encourage reflection and gratitude that produces more joy in life. I love the Journal because it is colorful, positive and thought-provoking. This is a fantastic way to journal your thoughts and feelings to create a life filled with gratitude and joy. I have kept a gratitude journal for several years but ended up getting burnt out trying to come up with different things to write about. I love this journal because the prompts offer direction and encourage reflection. The positive quotes are also very inspiring and helpful to create and live the life you deserve.

I love both of these books! If you are looking to give inspirational books this holiday season, I recommend Design The Life You Love and Instant Happy Journal. You can find both books to purchase on and Barnes &
