At Live Well Holistic Health, we are great believers in reading books that inspire us to be better people, lead healthier lives, and help us reduce stress. Reading a good self-help book can inspire, often giving us a short cut towards achieving what might take us far more time if left to our own devices. Receiving insights from experts who have spent time researching and developing solid theories for living a better life is a way to help shed habits that are no longer working for you. Here are three self-help books that we feel are worth reading. Combine them with the supportive care you get at our Live Well Holistic Health clinic, and you will be well on your way to a more balanced and pleasurable way of living.
Clean: The Revolutionary Program to restore the body’s natural ability to heal itself
Dr. Alejandro Junger is a leading cardiologist and highly regarded leader in the field of integrative medicine. His solid foundation in the body/mind connection, personal experience, and in-depth research and application has led him to an exceptional healing protocol that has reversed countless problems in his patients and reading audience.
Dr. Junger believes that most ailments are the result of toxic build-up in our systems. From food to chemicals in our environment, modern life disrupts our natural functions. By changing our habits, we can reverse the damages incurred by poor or misguided menu choices and exposure to the impurities around us. By detoxifying our bodies using a whole food approach we not only will lose excess weight, but will gain greater mental clarity, boost energy levels, end chronic depression, and improve our lives in countless other ways.
The Power of Now
By now the name Echhard Tolle has become almost a household word. Tolle’s book is a clearly stated guide on how to live in the present moment, rather than in the past or projecting oneself into the future. Through his simple, powerful message, he allows us to reap the benefits of staying present and enjoying each moment as it comes. Learning how to remove negative emotions and thoughts is key to removing dis-ease, which is one of the precepts we emphasize at Live Well Holistic Health, seeing so many of our patients suffering from excess worry and tension.
First Things First
This book by Stephen R. Covey provides readers with an accessible way to focus on what is truly important in life. A practical guide to determining how to channel energy in a balance way when it comes to your personal and professional life, this is a practical manual on how to use your time and where to place your energy in order to achieve your goals. Eliminating stress by managing one’s time more effectively, evaluating what it is you really want to be doing, and thinking about why you are doing specific things in your life that may or may not be productive is the basis for a living an authentic and satisfying life.
