Books for Better Living in the New Year

It’s almost the new year and no matter how cliche it sounds, a new year is a new start. Every year I make resolutions that I have every intention of keeping, but somewhere around March I fall off track. I know I’m not alone in this, so I’m here to introduce you to Books for Better Living.

Books for Better Living is home to a community of best-selling authors, wellness experts and book lovers who are passionate about healthy living. They deliver exclusive interviews, practical tips, thoughtful reviews, personal stories and original essays inspired by the best books on health, food, fitness, diet, relationships, career, happiness and more.

My December book pick is Gabby Bernstein’s May Cause Miracles. With Gabby’s help I plan on sticking to every resolution.

  • Wake up the first time your alarm goes off.
  • Don’t be scared to try new things.
  • Eat healthier!
  • Live each day with gratitude.
  • Learn how to cook something that doesn’t require a microwave.
  • Make more of an effort to keep in touch with old friends.
  • Read books that can’t be found in the teen fiction aisle.

What are your resolutions? How do you plan on keeping them?

Books for Better Living is getting into the holiday spirit with Season of Surprises [S.O.S.], a month-long celebration of healthy living that includes book giveaways, exclusive excerpts and inspiring tips that will help you end 2012 with a healthy bang. Today’s surprise of the day (12/11) is 5 signed advanced copies of Gabby Bernstein’s May Cause Miracles.  Head over to Books for Better Living to enter to win and get a head start on happiness in 2013!

    You may have better luck with sticking with your goals if you make them a little more specific. Instead of saying “make more of an effort to keep in touch with old friends,” you could set a goal of sending two items of mail a month to various friends, or skyping one old friend a week. Mail items could be postcards, love letters, thank you notes, notes of encouragement, or whatever else you want! Personally, I love receiving handwritten cards and save them to read on rainy days or when I’m feeling down. This might not work for you, but I find specific goals very helpful when wondering where to start.
    Also, perhaps you could make a list of a few books you’d like to read this year. As far as books that aren’t YA, I suggest reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern or Every Last One by Anna Quindlen. I think both are amazing. Good luck with your resolutions and thanks for the book recommendation! :)
