Managing my financial health seems to be more straightforward, than looking after my mental health. While numbers are my strength, learning how to manage my thoughts proves to be challenging. This abrupt disruption to my day-to-day life, from COVID-19, saw me spending a lot of time confronting my own thoughts. Furthermore, the numbers-driven approach in achieving financial freedom can be quite stressful at times.

As such, I picked up some really helpful books that helped me align my thoughts in a positive manner. There are 2 books by Haemin Sunim which I find the most helpful in managing my mental health. I will be sharing insights from these 2 books across 2 posts.

I hope these pointers would help someone in seeking peace within their minds.
