Wellbeing Wednesdays: How To Tackle Any Challenge With Ease

This is Wellbeing Wednesdays: a recurring series that will help you achieve your goals, whether it’s tackling mental health issues, focussing on your career, nurturing your relationships, health or self-development. In each part of the series, we introduce you to a book we believe will make you feel good from the inside out.

Every so often in our lives we all find ourselves feeling stuck in a situation or on a path too difficult to master. In reality, most situations can easily be changed with the right attitude and by focussing on our personal purpose or setting new goals. Get inspired to change your own path by reading the true and unique story of a girl who did exactly that…

Lara Prior-Palmer, the author of the book Rough Magic, found herself feeling a bit lost when all of her friends seemed to have solid plans for their lives but she didn’t. Then she discovered the derby, the toughest horse race in the world, and entered on a whim. Even though she quickly learned that contestants usually train for months in advance, Lara didn’t let that stop her. The inspiring tale should give you enough motivation to go after your own goals, even if you don’t know what the are yet…

“We read of sporting victories in the newspapers, but what about all we cannot see? It’s easy to forget the thudded moments of hopelessness involved in a journey, one’s deepest difficulties slowly made clear.”

Read Rough Magic as a reminder that life isn’t always easy, but you can do anything if you persevere. You will see that all the strength you need is inside of you, waiting to tackle any challenge you may face. You’ve got this!
