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 (more on this later) and, much like an in-person book club, a meeting is set toward the end of the month for us to talk about it. However, it will be held in our virtual living room — the Boho Berry Book Club Facebook Group. • During the month, 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. • Monthly book club meetings will take place on the 25th of each month and consist of questions, quotes, and conversation-starters released in separate posts, where discussion about each prompt can take place in the comments section. • Starting on the 25th of each month you’re also encouraged to write your own posts sharing your thoughts and experiences of reading that month’s book. • Throughout the month some chat about the book is a given, but to avoid “spoilers” and to support everyone’s individual reading pace, we ask that specific, in-depth talk waits until the end of the month. Think of what you would or would not say to your real-life friends about a book that you were all reading at different speeds! When in doubt, wait to post until the 25th. • We’ll keep the conversation going before our main chats with a “spoiler thread” where you can share thoughts and intentions related to mind, body and spirit as you move through the book. We would love for you to share your experiences! • On the first of each month, a poll will go up in the Boho Berry Book Club Facebook 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.

THIS MONTH’S BOOK:
The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins
I’ve long been familiar with the five second rule in the context of safely eating a mozzarella stick I just dropped on the ground. But then Mel Robbins came on the scene two years ago with her book The 5 Second Rule, full of tips and insights on how 5 second decisions are already making huge impacts on all of our lives and how to use that to our advantage, and now 5 second increments have a totally different association for me. Well…maybe just an additional assocation. *Nom*
And during the month of February, the members of the Boho Berry Book Club will be reading this book together and seeing what changes can happen in their lives, one quick decision at a time!
Mel Robbins is on fire right now. She has a daytime talk show coming up in the fall, a second Audible-exclusive release coming out in early February (in addition to the EXCELLENT recording of The 5 Second Rule available there), and she just wrapped up #MindsetReset, a free daily series meant to help people jump start 2019 in the best possible head space.
Don’t you want to see what she’s all about? Join us in The Boho Berry Book Club to get a feel for Mel and read a book that I personally use lessons from just about every day.
