Although these books aren’t necessarily food related, I do believe that taking good care of yourself in other ways does allow you to be a better, more competent eater. So this Fourth of July weekend, I hope you’ll practice taking better care of yourself. For me, that starts with taking a pause and finding ways to relax my body and mind. To do that, I’m planning on settling down with a good book – even if its only for a measly 15 minutes!!
Here are a few books I’ve been wanting to read but just haven’t made the time for:
I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book! But who doesn’t love discovering ways to make time for yourself… especially when that seems impossible to do!
As a retail shop owner, I’ve learned that sometimes its just as important to say no to an opportunity as it is to say yes to others. Another book I’ve heard great things about when it comes to setting priorities and finding time to breathe in between them.
I know I said that these books weren’t super food related, but I couldn’t resist adding this one to the list! Finding community and investing in relationships can be rejuvenating. Its also important to realize that food isn’t just about the nutrients… its deeply intertwined into our daily lives. This book looks at the importance of relationships built around the table and there are recipes. Recipes! A double win if you ask me.
Okay, so this book isn’t really one you read – instead you COLOR! Adult coloring books are all the rage and I can’t think of a better way to unwind! Have you tried coloring as a grown up yet?
Please note – we are HUGE fans of shopping local and have chosen to support a local Michigan based bookstore by sharing from their selection instead of Amazon. We would LOVE it if you considered purchasing from them or explore your own local bookstore for some of these finds!
