“The two books that come to mind that have really set themselves apart in the health/wellness realm are Radical Acceptance by Tara Brach and The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Douglas Carlton Abrams. Both of these books err on the side of mental, emotional, and spiritual development, balance and wellbeing, and have really shifted my lens of perspective, which trickles down into every other ‘health’ facet of my life.

“When it comes to a book that is always at the top of my stack, The Mindful Athlete: Secrets to Pure Performance by George Mumford is right there. So much of the work is within existing where you are with what you got…mindfulness is always the starting point of success.”

Jeremy Walton (Fitbit Local Chicago)

How to Eat, Move, and Be Healthy by Paul Chek — this book came out at a time in my career when I was really beginning to understand how complex the body is. Nothing is separated from the other. How we eat affects the way sleep, affects the way we move, affects the way we live, and so on. It’s through this book I was able to understand that the change in my life begins with the change in how I see my body, how I use my body, and how I better my body.”

    • The Alchemist: a classic that reminds us: we already have everything we need to be happy.”
  • Daring Greatly: a reminder that our openness, authenticity and vulnerability are our greatest strengths.”
