The New Year is upon us! I love the possibilities of a New Year, and a chance to start fresh. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite books to help you jump start your resolutions. I have personally read and/or owned all of these, so they are coming with my hearty recommendation.
For convenience, I’ve included Amazon links to each of the titles below. However, in many cases you should be able to locate these books at your local library if you wish!
This was my book club’s pick for December and what a great discussion it produced! You might recognize the author, Gretchen Rubin, because she wrote the bestseller The Happiness Project. Better than Before would be an excellent read no matter that your New Year’s Resolutions are. In this book, she uncovers the role habits have in our life – both good and bad. She shares how to develop habits that you want in your life, and how to protect them from self-sabotage. It was a very thought-provoking, yet easy read.
Chances are you’ve seen this title floating around: and for good reason, it’s a #1 New York Times Bestseller that’s easy to read, yet offers solid advice. I picked this book up myself last month and managed to read it in three sittings. There are a couple things that made this book different from other organizing books I’ve read: 1) Kondo claims that none of her clients have relapsed to disorganization (um… wow!) and 2) she advocates decluttering by category, not room.
