This book written by Dr. Karen Reivich is one of the best when it comes to understanding how to be mentally tough. Dr. Reivich wrote this book based on her experiences in training the entire United States Military to be as mentally fit as they are physically fit – it doesn’t get tougher than that! She takes readers through cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, but it doesn’t read like a textbook, her writing is approachable and easy to relate to.
I found this book to be evidence-based but easy to apply to my everyday life. She also talks about “thinking traps” which are common patterns of unhelpful thinking habits that trap us in pessimism and how to break out of these traps.
