Master Self-Care With These 5 New Books

I'll admit it: even though I know full well that taking the time to practice self-care is super important for overall health and happiness, sometimes it just doesn't seem possible to incorporate new habits into days that already feel far too busy. But, I have learned that even tiny changes can make a big difference. Just think, with a minor adjustment here or a subtle shift there, in no time you could be feeling happier, healthier, and more in control of your own emotional well-being. Here at the library, we have many fantastic resources to help you do just that. Consider checking out one of these 5 new self-care books from your local library. You're worth the effort!

The Heart of Wellness

The Heart of Wellness shows you how to optimize the workings of the body and mind so that your true nature can be revealed. Presented in two parts, this book begins by exploring the nature of disease: the causative and risk factors, the role of diet, exercise, and medication, and how Eastern and Western medical practices can come together. A holistic practice is then outlined, based on the author's successful Heal Your Heart Free Your Soul program, that will guide you toward good health and better living.
