Jay Shetty’s book Think Like a Monk is a simple approach to mindfulness and how we can all apply it to our everyday lives. The only way to achieve the happiness we all dream of is to look inside ourselves. Meditation can help us get to know ourselves better, but it is especially useful in helping us overcome the emotions that tend to take hold when we are under pressure. Shetty says that we can all become monks, and that being a monk is in fact a state of mind. So, all we have to do is master the three phases of this journey, which are: let go, grow and serve.
