168 Hours: You Have More Time than You Think by Laura Vanderham

  • InDependent Book Club choice to coincide with The MilSpo's Guide to Self-Care series topic "How to Manage your Time for Health and Happiness"
  • We are starved for time. We tell ourselves we'd like toaccomplish all kinds of goals. But then we give up because there just aren't enough hours to do it all. There has to be a better way...and Laura Vanderkam has found one. In "168 Hours", Vanderkam explains how you'll find it is possible to sleep eight hours a night, exercise five days a week, take piano lessons, and write a novel without giving up quality time for work, family, and other things that really matter.

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver

  • InDependent Book Club choice to coincide with The MilSpo's Guide to Self-Care series topic "Personal Strength: A Whole-Self Approach"
  • Author Barbara Kingsolver and her family abandoned the industrial-food pipeline to live a rural life—vowing that, for one year, they’d only buy food raised in their own neighborhood, grow it themselves, or learn to live without it. Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is an enthralling narrative that will open your eyes in a hundred new ways to an old truth: You are what you eat. Grab your hard copy or Kindle version here.

 

The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin

  • InDependent Book Club choice to coincide with The MilSpo's Guide to Self-Care series topic "How to Manage your Time for Health and Happiness"
  • Gretchen Rubin chronicles her adventures during the twelve months she spent test-driving the wisdom of the ages, current scientific research, and lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. Among other things, she found that novelty and challenge are powerful sources of happiness, that money can help buy happiness, when spent wisely, that outer order contributes to inner calm, and that the very smallest of changes can make the biggest difference. Get your hard copy or Kindle version here.
