Namaste at Home: Positive Thinking and Meditation During a Freakin' Pandemic


Loved it! 😍

A consistent reminder to find gratitude and peace during a global pandemic; this witty piece can make you both laugh and cry.

Sola Damon, a pseudonymous writer with a talent for walking the fine line between comedy and tragedy, has written a gorgeous memoir of the early days of the 2020 pandemic.

Namaste at Home: Positive Thinking and Meditation During a Freakin' Pandemic is a short read that serves as an inspiration for a healthier, more positive mindset that could last a lifetime.

The focus of the novel is on 27 days of isolation, and 27 words of Sanskrit meant to make the author and the reader find an introspective resolution to the outside turmoil that has been in the world since March of 2020. Whether you're looking for a spark of positivity in these dire times, trying to make sense of the negativity in your life, or simply a fan of yoga and meditation looking for your next inspiration, this book is for you.

Namaste at Home will make you question your purpose in life. Are you willing to let the negativity of the world influence your actions and thoughts, or can you learn to control your thoughts and focus on the light of positivity?

While reading this novel, I was unable to stop myself from writing down quotes that will continue to encourage my personal growth. Sola Damon wrote with such inspiring human empathy and dedication to the improvement of her own mental health that I couldn't help but be encouraged to take a look at my own attitude towards life during this pandemic.

This novel, despite appearing to be focused on a niche topic, is, in reality, a conversation that the majority of readers in today's world would benefit from having with themselves. When the world seems to be falling apart, we must turn to face ourselves and decide if our own minds are a friend or a foe.

Not only have I recommended it to other stressed students and workers affected by this pandemic, but I may also have to buy a hard copy for my own library.
