Build Your Own Wellness Library

Wellness Library

 

These days, the amount of wellness related books out there competing for your eyeballs is staggering. Every book can be a rabbit hole leading towards another set of rabbit holes, and on and on…  So while this list of some of my favorite books is by no means be exhaustive, I do want to highlight a few books that I’ve found to be particularly eye opening, as well as a few that I return to over and over again.

Herewith 7 of my go-to reads grouped by “heart,” “mind,” and “body,” plus a bonus book:

Heart

  • The Omnivore’s Dilemma
    This book is an exquisitely organized exploration of my ‘Why?’ In exploring the food chains that sustain us, Michael Pollan asks questions that have profound political, economic, psychological and moral implications.
  • The Big Oyster: History on the Half Shell
    In his history of New York City (via the renowned oyster beds of the Hudson River), Mark Kurlansky raises interesting points about city planning, human impact on our environment and how we might live more sustainably. I’m hoping he’s working on one about water and Texas.
