    How to Break Up with Your Phone

    I have a phone problem. I’m constantly gazing at my phone, fondling it, and even if I pick it up for a second to look at one specific thing, I’m entranced by its glow and will get sucked in for another 15 minutes. Think of all that lost time! Plus, the blue light is definitely affecting my sleep patterns. Catherine Price’s 30-day plan to take back your life is irreverent, yet filled with concrete actions to help break the phone addiction and use your device more mindfully.

    Rise and Grind

    Daymond John is my favorite “shark” on the ABC show Shark Tank, and that’s because I love his advice. He tells entrepreneurs that persistence and hard work are at the heart of every successful business and even illustrated it in his own life, founding a clothing line as a young man that he hand-sewed between shifts at Red Lobster. The subtitle of his latest book is Outperform, Outwork, and Outhustle Your Way to a More Successful and Rewarding Life, and that’s exactly what I want to start doing in 2018. In addition to my day job, I want to work on my passion project on the side without getting burned out. Daymond shows readers how to squeeze every minute out of each day’s 24 hours.

    How Healing Works

    Navigating your own healthcare is important—and confusing. Dr. Wayne Jonas’s book lays out a new approach to dealing with injury, illness, and wellness, which is all about tapping into the mind-body connection that’s so often ignored at your general practitioner’s office. Dr. Jonas argues that we, not our doctors, are in control of our own well-being. This book helps readers change the way we think about and use health care and enables us to be more in control of our recovery and lasting wellness. It’s a fascinating and empowering read.
