Welcome to the
Boho Berry Book Club

ABOUT THE BOOK CLUB

The Boho Berry Book Club is a meeting place to gather and talk about a different personal development book each month — and the ways it can make our lives more awesome off the page. Personal development topics can feel…well, personal, and we often can’t help but fall into the trap of taking ourselves too seriously. This group places a bright filter over those topics to make it all feel a little lighter. The Boho Berry Book Club is an opportunity to engage with self-help concepts and integrate them into our lives where it feels right, leave what doesn’t with zero guilt, and know that we have the backup and relief of a club of awesome, imperfect people figuring it out along with us. View each book, each week, each day as just a new experiment you’re conducting in living a happier life, and enjoy!

HOW IT WORKS:

A book is selected each month by poll (more on this later) and you’re free to read the book at your own pace. We want the book club to feel like a fun, light and inspiring extra in your life, not like homework!
A monthly spoiler post is provided for chat about the book throughout the month…to support everyone’s individual reading pace, we ask that specific, in-depth talk stays in the comments of this post.
A free-for-all post is provided each week for talk about other self-help books, podcasts, videos, blog posts and articles. We want the Boho Berry Book Club to be a space to share and get ideas for inspiring things to check out that you may not have come across on your own!
A shortcut to the discussion on our current or past books can be found by clicking the “Units” tab on the left side of the Boho Berry Book Club homepage.
Book Selection:
On the 1st of each month, a poll will go up in the group with possible selections for the next month’s book. You’ll have 3 days to vote for the book that you’d like us to read next, and then the winner will be announced. This gives everyone plenty of time to get the book before the next month starts.
Have fun!

THIS MONTH’S BOOK:

Rest by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang

Kristen, here!

Summer can feel like such an inherently busy time. If you have kids living with you, they’re likely not in school — must entertain! The sun is out — must get outside! It can be fun, but it can also be pretty exhausting. So I can’t say I’m super shocked that the Boho Berry Book Club voted for Alex Soojung-Kim Pang’s do-less manifesto Rest as our August book/summer rush antidote.

I was first introduced to Pang’s work on rest through his Masterclass in the Calm meditation app, where he explains not just why rest is so essential to overall wellbeing — but how it can make you more productive in the long-run. That wasn’t a foreign concept to me, but something about the way Pang laid it out resonated in a new way. I’m excited to go deeper (and hopefully integrate those lessons into my life a little more) along with the awesome group in the Boho Berry Book Club.

If you’re ready for a little summertime rest, I hope you’ll join us!
