You may not be aware, but Lennox & Addington County manages a number of forests in Addington Highlands. One spot in particular, found in Flinton, is a particularly beautiful place to go for a stroll.

I don’t generally read a lot of self-help, but I do read a lot of non-fiction titles that just so happen to have lessons that can be applied to everyday life. The following are some books that are not technically self-help (except for one!) but will be helpful to the reader nonetheless!
