50 Things We All Take Too Seriously by Luke Harding @LukeHarding3 @AustinMacauley #50Things

Do you find yourself stressing out each and every day? Does it seem like it's one thing after another? Do you wish things could seem a bit easier and lighter? Well, look no further! 50 things We All Take Too Seriously will take you on a journey of relief. As you read, you will begin to realise how we make things seem a lot more stressful than they actually are. To put it bluntly, we are all guilty of TAKING THINGS TOO SERIOUSLY! This book will allow you to change the way you perceive stressful situations to make them not so stressful after all. If you are looking for a fun, light-hearted, yet thought-provoking read, then this is the book for you.

50 Things We All Take Too Seriously by Luke Harding was published by Austin Macauley on 30 May 2018. My thanks to the author who sent my copy for review.

This beautifully presented book is just 74 pages long and is 74 pages of complete wisdom. We often stress about the little things as well as the huge world events that we cannot change. Personally, I've found that it's the little things that bother me the most; those ignorant parents who block the road outside of my house as they park up to wait for their kids to come out of school; those people who stop in a shop doorway making me crash into them or even the fact that my cats will eat half a box of food and then all of a sudden decide that that very same food is unpalatable and I have to go out and buy more.

Of course I stress about the huge things too; the state of the world; the amount of wars and mindless violence that is happening; politics and the fact that people need to visit food banks.

Luke Harding has taken fifty things that affect the majority of us; that stress us out, and written a short piece about each of them. There's everything from 'the love life', 'class' and 'holding grudges', and his words are not only intelligent and perceptive, he's really funny too.

Whilst I don't think this book will change your world, it may help you to come to terms with how you look at things around you, and how you let those things affect your day to day life. It certainly made me think about what's important and what's really not worth getting worked up about.

I do have to mention the amazing illustrations in the book too. I don't know who did them, but they are incredible. Full colour and so powerful.

A self-help book with a difference. Thought provoking, funny and perceptive with stunning visual images.

Luke was born in Essex and now lives in London. Helping others is what makes him happiest. 
This is Luke’s debut book. 
It was inspired from his extensive research into the mind, body and spirit of humans. 
He wanted to make a profound change to the way he perceived the world. 
On his journey of self-awareness, he realised there was something that worked best for him. Simply not taking things too seriously, and so the book was born.
