This week I’m switching things up and having my friend and fellow self-help junkie, Jessica I. Lutz, share 5 books that have totally transformed her life.
I’m not going to lie, I was ridiculously excited to see what Jessica would share because she is an avid reader who happens to be interested in a lot of the same topics that I am. Believe me when I say her Instagram Feed (and Stories) is a treasure trove of resources and titles to add to your reading list.
So here you have it, folks, 5 books that changed Jessica’s life for the better and why.
Self-care is a conversation that I’ve been wanting to dive deep with and am thrilled to be talking about it with Monica Ballard, a massage therapist, reiki practitioner, yoga instructor, and fellow podcaster.
Monica shares about her her life and work, using her personal journey to inform her professional passions around radical self-care.
We start our conversation with several book recommendations in the self-help genre, then weave our way through the concept of radical self-care as it relates to authenticity, awareness, integrity, and integration, and, finally, end on one of the most beautiful stories about crocodiles and the Never-Not-Broken Goddess.
I found this entire conversation to be informative, thought-provoking, and profound and am truly excited to go back and listen again because of the nuggets of wisdom Monica shares throughout.
Unplug and give yourself the space to recharge, refresh, and reconnect with the things that matter most.
I shouldn’t admit to this publicly, but the picture above is as close to a self-portrait as one can get without actually being in the picture. I am queen of having three different devices in front of me — computer, phone, and tablet — while simultaneously trying to read a book. The only difference is, I don’t drink coffee while doing it.
(What? I don’t like coffee.)
My husband always jokes and offers to hand me his phone, or to grab our daughter’s tablet, so that I can have another screen to look at.
Not because I don’t appreciate being poked fun of. (I do.) But because it’s symptomatic of a much larger issue for me: a feeling of always needing to be on and connected.
