Friday Coffee & Bookish Speaks – Reading for your Health

A lot of book blogs that I subscribe to focus mainly on fiction. I think that’s great, I do that as well. Yet, I am concerned that we can get so wrapped up in fiction that we are not dealing with real life. I think a solution to this problem is… wait for it… reading.

Today I want to talk about reading books that better our health. This could include books about our diet, our emotions, relationships, mental health, there are too many to name.  I think you get my point. I think even if it is only once in a few months you pick a book that helps you in some area of your life.

My most recent read for health was the Empress With No Clothes – Conquering Self-Doubt to Embrace Success. The book was as pretentious as its title but nonetheless was a good book to help me with something I really struggle with. I struggle with self-doubt to the point it can be debilitating in some areas of my life. Especially in my writing.  So though there were things I did not like about it overall the book helped me to figure out some helpful perspectives in embracing success.

Reading for your health is important!

What do you read for health?

    I hardly ever review non-fiction, particularly autobiographys and memoirs. Good or bad I feel like I’m critiquing that person’s life or experience. While the same could be said about a work of fiction as said author puts time and dedication into it as well. Although non-fiction it feels different to me, perhaps it is more personal? When I do read non-ficton though it is usually either health {neurology related}, true crime or survivalist books

      I like your approach to memoirs and things. I agree. I do however enjoy a good book on health emotional, mental, or physical.
