The New Year is an exciting time to take a step back and make some new goals for what you want to achieve in the upcoming year. We all have different aspects of our lives that we are looking to focus on – whether that is our physical health, mental health, or even our finances. We like to look at this time as a time full of promise, not dread, and these books have been instrumental in encouraging us to reach for the stars and jump head-first into the new year.
The Obesity Code by Dr. Jason Fung is a great book for anyone looking to educate themselves on the truth behind obesity, weight loss, and insulin resistance. It will open your eyes to the science behind why it is not just “calories in, calories out.”
One of my favorite books that aligns my mental health with my healing journey is Dr. Caroline Leaf’s Switch On Your Brain. By combining this thought process it brings a complete circle of healing and her insight is so helpful to getting out of negative thought patterns. With the New Year we often think of physical fitness, but this mental health approach is healing and growth on a new level.
One thing I rarely see people talking about is how pregnancy and birth put a ton of stress on the pelvic floor. After having my first baby, I experienced it first hand and knew I needed to work on relieving that stress and tension. Lauren Roxburg addresses and brings attention to this unmentionable topic in The Power Source which has been an amazing reference for myself to find healing!
This interactive journal made a big difference for me last year and something I plan to use again in 2020. It is a great way to start the New Year off strong and has helped me be more positive by prompting me to start every day with gratitude.
Reading is something I crave on a daily basis. While diving into a funny romance comedy or a chilling mystery is always enjoyable, I believe reading words of truth and encouragement are truly powerful to our mind, body, and soul. Brene Brown’s books encompass’ a truth that empowers me to own who I am in whatever season of life I’m in.
Before working for Dr. Cole, Grain Brain was my first exposure to natural health. I never knew how badly grains could affect our brain function and this book showed me the scary truth about wheat, carbs, sugar, and our health. Since reading this, I’ve been able to make healthy lifestyle changes to better support my brain and overall health.
I have some big goals for 2020 and one of those is taking even better control of my finances and making my money work for me. Jen Sincero’s book is fun to read, easy to understand, and helped me look at my finances and earning potential in a new light.
