Sit back and lets the wellness sink in.

Life is busy, life is hectic, and life moves fast. In addition to exercising and drinking water to help balance the mind and body, there are several other resources to offer you motivation in the self-care and wellness departments.

Nourishing your brain with books that concentrate on wellbeing and healthy living is an essential gift for yourself. Becoming mindful and establishing wholesome rituals can help formulate new goals and values while providing you the resources for managing your feelings and emotions. Furthermore, mindful living may positively impact your relationships by encouraging self-awareness from your actions, words and daily habits.

With the myriad of wellness books available, I have selected five that offer a diverse range of tips and guidance.

The Sleep Revolution by Arianna Huffington: In The Sleep Revolution, Huffington shows how a lack of sleep compromises our health and decision-making, and cripples our personal and work lives. She discusses the science behind our dreams while addressing ways to achieve better and more healthful sleeping patterns.

The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking: CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, Wiking covers methods to achieve happiness the Danish way. Hygge covers mindfully selecting foods, effortlessly planning events, and overall living wholesomely. The book is filled with gorgeous photographs and illustrations making it a pleasant read on a Sunday afternoon.

You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero: This is THAT yellow book you see everywhere. Her words take you on a blissful journey of self-discovery and empowerment. Sincero will broach topics that will help the reader discover and overcome life barriers while learning methods to bolster one’s mind, belief system, and overall personal strength. In this book, you will re-learn and be reminded how authentically amazing you already are.

White Hot Truth by Danielle LaPorte: Like the title, LaPorte tells you how it is. There’s no BS and fluff in this text. Her guidance is rooted in her support for the reader’s ability to take action of their own spiritual intelligence and self-worth by recognizing past ways one tried to “perfect” themselves due to societal expectations. She encourages the reader to be their personal guru and to trust their instinct in this thing called life.

Deliciously Ella Every Day by Ella Woodward: In this brilliant cookbook, Woodward focuses on ‘making healthy living easy for busy people – no equipment, no complicated ingredients and lots of deliciousness using accessible ingredients, which means it’s all much more inexpensive.’ Sounds great, right? If you want easy, healthy and affordable home-made meals with a touch of mindfulness, then this is the cookbook for you!
