10 Best Books (and Audiobooks) to Read When You're Busy and Stressed
Is it me or am I somehow even busier during a pandemic than I was before? I know: I'm grateful. I am lucky to have my health. I am lucky to be employed. I am lucky to have amazing friends, steady WiFi for when I frequently Zoom with my friends, and a Postmates app that doesn't judge me as I order Jack in the Box for the 47,393 time that month. Even though I have all of that, I'm not afraid to admit this: I'm booked. I'm busy, and I am easily overwhelmed, so reading hasn't always been the first thing on my mind. In fact, the television has been better company than books these past few months. However, every couple of weeks, a book sneaks its way into my heart, and I realize how much I love sitting on my couch with a cup of hot cocoa and an open book in my hand. When you're feeling stressed, take a moment to breathe, ask for help if you need it, and read (or listen) to one of these 10 books.
