Most of the time, I prefer to face my fears, worries, and challenges head-on.
Running away from them feels good for a second, but is a bad strategy for the long-term.
But sometimes, when you’re facing a lot of problems, distracting yourself from them for a while can make you feel a lot better.
For hundreds of years, books have been a fantastic way to lose yourself in a fictional world where your problems don’t exist. Here are some books I recommend to help take your mind off of your daily worries:
- Pandora’s Star by Peter F. Hamilton (The Commonwealth Saga series)
- The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi (The Interdependency series)
- Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey (The Expanse series)
- Old Man’s War by John Scalzi (Old Man’s War series)
These are all in the genre of space opera. I discovered this genre a few years ago and I’ve become a huge fan. The stories are often on a grand scale, so you can easily immerse yourself in them.
