Books for all your Resolutions

It’s a brand new year, and that means that it’s time for New Year’s Resolutions! Studies show that these are 5 of the most popular resolutions that are made each year, and these are some books that can help you stick to them!

(1) Be less stressed

Stress is something that everyone deals with, whether it stems from work, family or any of the many pressures that we manage on a daily basis. The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking is a great book that delves deep into what makes Danish people “the happiest in the world”. He believes that it is the concept of “Hygge”, which is “an atmosphere and an experience. It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe." Learn how to deal with stress by incorporating Hygge into your life! Check it out at call number: 158.1 W64L

(2) Eat healthier

Any doctor will tell you that the food that you ingest has a direct correlation with your health. But with so many conflicting fads, diets and suggestions, how can we know what to eat? In How Not to Die, Dr. Michael Greger explains which foods to eat and which lifestyle changes to make to live longer. Check it out at call number: 613.2 G8615h

(3) Organize

Getting organized is a difficult task. Thankfully, we have cleaning consultant Marie Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Art of Tidying Up to give us pointers on how to declutter our homes and our lives! This book is filled with great, practical advice to guide anyone through the process of cleansing and dealing with the overwhelm that comes with it. Check it out at call number: 648 K8365L

(4) Manage money

Jen Sincero, bestselling author of self-help book You Are A Badass, returns with a book catered specifically to help with the seemingly-impossible task of making and managing wealth- You Are A Badass At Making Money. This book utilizes humor, accessible language and real-life examples to help “remove obstacles between yourself and the income of your dreams.”, according to New York Magazine!

(5) Exercise

We all want to exercise, but sometimes our bodies don’t get the memo. In Becoming a Supple Leopard 2nd Edition: The Ultimate Guide to Resolving Pain, Preventing Injury, and Optimizing Athletic Performance, Dr. Kelly Starrett explains the deeper principles that dictate how our bodies function, and how we can use those principles to our advantage to get fit and healthy! Check it out at call number: 613.71 St28b
