It’s Wednesday, and I’m here to introduce you to a new way to refresh your week as we hit the “hump” day. There’s nothing more soothing than finding a few hours to yourself away from anything work related. Here’s a simple one — replace your social app with a book, or a magazine. It’s time to get lost in the reading realm, girlfriend! It is something so simple, yet hard for some of us to find time to do.
I have been an avid reader since I was a kid, I’m part of that study, yeah. And while this continues until today (a bit less these last couple years), this year I decided to give myself a number of books to read and indulge in. I would love to join a book club even — I used to host one myself, they are fun! So today as part of our weekly “Self-Love Wednesday“, I encourage you to find something you want to read, and dive in!
Not the book holding type? Try an audiobook! I haven’t tried that option yet but when I do I’ll make sure to share my thoughts. If it works, why not? I’m all for the intimate reading experience. I love to hold and smell books. I’m also a note taker. Keeping things minimal? Try a Kindle + Kindle app. I have an older gen of Kindle and it’s perfect for on the go and it saves money! I am still a book buyer, that will never leave me.
Here’s what I’m reading this month:
I love magazines, it’s no brainer I founded my very own last year. As I get back to my roots and dive deeper into wellness, and nutrition, I thought it would be great to find a publication that reflects just that. I love Thoughtfully Magazine, and can’t wait for their newest issue to it stands. As for now, issue 08 is the first issue I purchased (digital) and fell in love with. It truly captured my lifestyle and introduced me to some great new practices, and products.
2. Crazy Love —
As I get closer to God and build our relationship, this book is the perfect read for understanding His love for us. It’s funny, I purchased this book 2 years ago and started a couple chapters then but never finished it. I am glad that it happened this way because the woman I was back then isn’t the same as today. Today I understand more, and this book means a lot more to me. Francis Chan does a great job sharing God’s love with us.
I’m not going to lie, the title definitely took me by surprise! If there were a pill to avoid death I’m sure everyone would be on it. Well, how about our health? Have you ever thought about what you’re eating and how it is affecting your body? Dr. Micheal Greger, M.D and leading expert in nutrition and whole foods plant-based eating. He does a great job at sharing science-backed information on how healing plants are, on what to avoid and incorporate into your daily meals. How Not To Die Cookbook is now available, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!
What are you reading?!?! Let me know, I’d love to check it out!
