New Year, New You?

January 08, 2018 | by

So here we are, one week into the new year. Have you managed to keep any of your resolutions? As a serial resolution-breaker, I’ve given them up!

But, if you are the kind of person who hasn’t given up on self-improvement, here are a few fun titles to help you out.

Even the Stiffest People Can Do the Splits
A 4-Week Stretching Plan to Achieve Amazing Health
by Eiko (12/05/17)
9781635651782 | Rodale Books | RAI
Cloth | Price: $21.99

Fun fact: we did a splits challenge in the Vancouver office and spent a few minutes every day in our stretch-a-torium! As a notoriously un-flexible person, I noticed a huge improvement.

Practical Zen for Health, Wealth and Happiness
by EiJulian Daizan Skinner et al. (02/21/18)
9781848193901 | Singing Dragon | UTP
Paper| Price: $18.95

My husband took up meditation a few years ago, and it’s really changed his life. I keep meaning to join him in the habit, and maybe this is the year I go for it? A super-practical book like this one is bound to help!

Dutch Feast
by Wight, Emily (10/01/17) 
9781551526874 | Arsenal Pulp Press | UTP
Cloth | Price: $32.95

I think learning a new skill counts as an excellent resolution. Make this the year you master Dutch cuisine with help from hilarious and awesome Vancouver author Emily Wight!

Happy new year, everyone!
