Some books leave us free and some books make us free.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Reading has been proven to help reduce stress. During the academic year, students may forgo their love of reading due to hectic schedules. Winter break is a great opportunity to read something other than textbooks and articles. For ideas, visit NPR’s Book Concierge and Good Reads Best Books of 2019.
In addition, here are some of my favorite books:
- Self Help: I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t): Making the Journey from “What Will People Think?” to “I Am Enough” (Brene Brown)
- Motivational: Enjoy Every Sandwhich: Living Each Day as If It Were Your Last ( Lee Lipsenthal)
- Memoir: Born Bright: A Young Girl’s Journey from Nothing to Something in America (C. Nicole Mason)
- Suspense/Sci-Fi: Dark Matter (Blake Crouch)
- Creativity Workbook: Hand Lettering for Relaxation: An Inspirational Workbook for Creating Beautiful Lettered Art (Amy Latta)
Whether you choose to relax through reading or some other means, we encourage you to make self-care a priority! We look forward to connecting with you in third term.
