New Reads

One of my new year’s resolutions is to read more! I used to love getting completely engrossed in a book, but I’ve realized that the busier I get, I have cut this out of my lifestyle.  I truly believe that reading makes you smarter, more curious, well rounded, grows your vocabulary, and opens your eyes to new ideas... The hard part is getting myself to stop what I'm doing and sit down to read. 

The past few weeks, I've loved unwinding at the end of the day by lighting a candle, turning on my diffuser, and sipping on some Sleepy Time tea while a read a good book.

I didn’t plan this, but the books I’ve been reading all fall into a different category of my life that I want to grow and/or improve; Spirituality, Health & Wellness, Career/Leadership, and Organization. These aren’t necessarily page turner books that you want to read cover-to-cover in one day, but I’ve enjoyed hopping around and reading these books simultaneously. 

Too Busy Not to Pray: I read this book every morning in January and absolutely loved it. If you’re looking to improve your prayer life or understand prayer in a deeper way, I would definitely recommend this book.  We are all so busy and it’s easy to feel that we don’t have time to pray but this book teaches us that our lives are actually too crazy to NOT have prayer as a part of our daily walk with God. 

The Honest Life: I absolutely love this book. It’s all about maintaining a clean diet and incorporating non-toxic products into your daily life.  I’m learning so much about hazardous chemicals that we come into contact with every day!  It’s scary but this book has been very helpful. 

The Millionaire Messenger:  This book is all about how to package your knowledge and advice (on any topic, in any industry) to help others succeed. It’s great for bloggers and people who have advice that they want to share with others!

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: Oh my gosh this book is so crazy!! One of my New Year’s resolutions is to be a cleaner, more organized person.  This book teaches you to use the KonMari method of tidying and decluttering your space. I've already thrown away so many things that I haven't been using but I still have a long way to go. So challenging but I definitely recommend it!!!

Are you guys into any good books? I want to hear! What do you love? Any recommendations?

Thanks for stopping by!
