The time before bed can be one of the most special moments in the day where you can spend some time with yourself instead of fussing over the kids, friends, spouses, parents, or anyone else who demands your attention. Your time is undividedly your own and it should be one that relaxes and de-stresses you. If you enjoying reading, we have some recommendations for you:
1. Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
Trevor Noah, comedian and host of The Daily Show, walks you through his childhood in South Africa where he touches upon the awkwardness of growing up, racism before and after the apartheid, family dynamics, and more. It's a serious yet comedic read that will expose you to a new perspective, invite introversion while making you laugh at the same time.
2. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
This book is told from the prospective of three strong women who struggle with the dynamics of racism in the south during the 1960s. Specifically looking at the relationship between black maids and their respective white families, this book is more than just about race but also about perseverance, growing into your own voice, and self-empowerment.
3. Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
Switching it up, this book is a collection of poetry from Rupi Kaur about her life but is extremely relatable to most people. Talking about love, betrayal, and self-discovery, Kaur captures a broad range of emotions many of us experience through the motions of going through life. A short and fast read, it's one that is easy to crack open for a few minutes before feeling drowsy.
