Whatever your route to wellness might be, the library has you covered! Here are just a few eBooks and audiobooks about wellness you can download right now and use at home with your library card:
Now is the perfect time to transform your living space into a cozy, well-arranged home! The term Hygge is defined as “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).” In this book, Author Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, explores what makes a happy, comfy home.
Dan Harris, ABC News anchor and author of the bestselling 10% Happier, returns with Jeff Warren and Carlye Adler for a further exploration of mediation and mindfulness for beginners. If you’ve ever wanted to start meditating and are unsure how, if you are unconvinced it works, or are even too embarrassed to begin, this is the book for you. Harris and company offer instructions, tips, and insights into the best ways to start a doable meditation routine, and why it is so important that you do!
“Beginners Daily Yoga consists of five gentle fifteen-minute yoga sessions devised to be used, one a day, in rotation. These sessions are ideal for those with little or no previous yoga experience. They allow you to practice yoga daily so you can experience many of the benefits of regular yoga practice without taking up too much time.”
You can still have a regular yoga routine with limited time and/or mobility! Chair yoga is a popular alternative to traditional yoga as it is just what it sounds like: exercise you can do sitting down. “From celebrity yoga instructor Kristin McGee comes this fun, accessible guide to 100 yoga poses and exercises that can be done in your chair and take just minutes a day.”
