Create Healthy Habits

Find A New Hobby

Build Better Relationships

Set Boundaries, Find Peace by Nedra Glover Tawwab

“Healthy boundaries. We all know we should have them–in order to achieve work/life balance, cope with toxic people, and enjoy rewarding relationships with partners, friends, and family. But what do “healthy boundaries” really mean–and how can we successfully express our needs, say “no,” and be assertive without offending others?”

Reduce Screen Time

How to Break Up with Your Phone by Catherine Price

“Catherine Price presents a practical, hands-on plan to break up, and then make up, with your phone. You’ll discover how phones and apps are designed to be addictive and how the time we spend on them damages our abilities to focus, think deeply, and form new memories.”

Tidy Up Your Home

Spark Joy by Marie Kondo

“Japanese decluttering guru Marie Kondo presents an illustrated guide to her acclaimed KonMari Method, with step-by-step folding illustrations for everything from shirts to socks, plus drawings of perfectly organized drawers and closets. She also provides advice on frequently asked questions, such as whether to keep “necessary” items that may not bring you joy.”
