She also has an e-book series called Built and Bendy that promotes strength training and flexibility, mindfulness, and leading your health goals from a positive place.

I might read too much, but when is reading a bad thing? I’m often asked for book recommendations, and even though I have book lists on my blog, I wanted to bless The/Thirty with some of my favorites. There are so many books that are worthwhile and wonderful, but this short list is a sample of books that have touched my life along the way.

You might think a wellness book list will include things about dieting, working out, and “clean” eating. In my own life, as well as what I see with my clients, so much of wellness is not just the familiar topics. Your relationships, your spirituality, and your mindset are just as important. The same goes for sleep and self-care practices, which are necessary for true wellness. Amazing things can happen when our thoughts align and our actions follow.

Look over these topics and titles, and see if anything speaks to you.
