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:
Atomic Habits by James Clear
Habits are really just choices. Choices that we’ve put on auto-pilot that yield all sorts of results. The question is, are you happy with the results of those habits?
If the answer is a mixed bag for you, fear not. We’re going granular on our choices this month by reading Atomic Habits by James Clear in the Boho Berry Book Club!
The Atomic Habits website touts the book as “the most comprehensive guide on how to change your habits and get 1% better every day.” Sounds good to me!
I’m someone who seems to benefit the most long-term when I’m not trying to re-invent the wheel (see my blog post on a favorite habit-changing strategy here). So adding incremental change to the accountability of having a group to read along with? Sounds like a winning strategy! And we’d love for you to come join us.
