Top 5 Books For Health + Happiness
It’s no secret that I’m a health nerd. I also really love reading, it’s one of my favorite ways to spend a Sunday morning. I always have a book or two on the go, usually one to teach me something and another fun book to read before bed (50 shades anyone?).
Here are my favorite books that inspire health & happiness. Hopefully you find them inspirational too!
Crazy, Sexy, Diet by Kris Carr
I recommend this book to everyone! Kris is living with cancer and she’s not only surviving, she’s made her life even better. She now made a career out of helping other women change their lives for the better. If you’re looking for a kick to get you started on your health journey, or need a new boost of inspiration, you need to put this book at the top of your reading list.
There’s More to Life Than This by Theresa Caputo
A couple years ago I bought this book for my mom, who’s a big fan of Teresa and her show ‘The Long Island Medium’. I thought it’d be a fun read, since Teresa’s personality is large than life. I was pleasantly surprised to find so much spiritual wisdom in the pages as well. No matter your religion Teresa gives some beautiful insights on what happens to our spirit after we pass on.
The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet by Joe Cross
Before you read this book I recommend watching ‘Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead’ on Netflix, and the recently released sequel. Joe lost tons of weight and changed his life by going on a juice cleanse. This book is full of great juice recipes and give you plans to reboot your health!
The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman
This book is a must read for everyone. Single, in a relationship, old, young, we can all take something from this book. I think it’s really important for us to take education about healthy relationships into our own hands and this is the first book on your reading list! I wrote a whole post on it here.
The Artists Way by Julia Cameron
This book is set up in a workbook style to help you discover your passion and creativity. It’s where I got the idea of writing morning pages from and it really helped me become more creative and discover my love of writing. I reccomend this for anyone that feels like they’re missing something in their life or need to express themselves in a new way.
Zoobiquity by Barbara Natterson-Horowitz M.D. and Kathryn Bowers
I absolutely loved this book and I bet the science nerd in you will too. In this book Dr. Natterson-Horowitz looks at how medical conditions are treated in the medical field and compares it to the veterinary field. It’s an amazing read that really opens your eyes to how similar we are to our animal friends.
