Take Your Skincare to the Next Level with This Guide to K-Beauty

#1 New Release in Massage

Have you always longed for that fresh, glowing, no-makeup look? With this step-by-step guide, anyone can attain healthy skin with confidence. But Skincare for Your Soul takes it one step further―it guides you to a place where skincare is also self-care.

The skincare journey. As much as we’d like it to, glowing, clear skin doesn’t happen overnight. But there is beauty in the process―not just the results. Author Jude Chao links skincare to self-care culture, giving readers a practical guide to developing their ideal skincare routine and using it to help manage stress, anxiety, and depression. The Korean skincare routine invites us to look at our skincare not only as a way to reduce lines and wrinkles or clear up breakouts, but as a tool for developing our self-care habits.

Steady improvement is the goal. Photoshopped perfection is neither realistic nor is it a healthy goal. What matters is caring for our mental health and building our self-esteem by intentionally taking time each day to give our skin some love. But it starts with changing how we view skincare and developing a routine that fits our personal needs and goals, and Chao will help you do that. Dive into her book on K-beauty and discover:

  • An easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to skincare
  • A clear breakdown of skincare products (not brands), and pros and cons to help customize your routine
  • How skincare can be a reliable and effective mental health management tool
  • Tips for avoiding common types of exploitative and manipulative beauty marketing

The Food Revolution

The Saving Power of the Plant-Based Diet

A revolution in food-politics. When food activist John Robbins released an early version of this book in 1987, he took the first steps in launching the food revolution. His viewpoint and insight on the harms of America’s eating habits was a wake-up call for many. By bringing to our attention fundamental issues in our eating habits, such as our dependence on animal products, Robbins provokes our awareness and promotes change.

Making conscious food choices. It is obvious to us that what we eat affects our own bodies, but what we may not realize is that what we eat also affects our world. In fact, most of the foods that are bad for us (think: genetically modified products) also negatively impact our environment. By approaching our eating habits with intentionality, we benefit our own health and that of the world we live in.

The value of a plant-based diet. Robbins’ arguments for a plant-based diet are compelling and backed by over 20 years of work focused on the subject of conscious eating. Through exposing the dangers in our factory farming system, Robbins makes a definitive case for solely plant-based eating. This timely read on healthy eating will enlighten those curious about plant-based diets and fortify the mindsets of the already converted.

Read John Robbins’ book, The Food Revolution: How Your Diet Can Help Save Your Life and Our World, and discover…

  • The negative effects your current eating habits could be having on you
  • A powerful case for plant-based eating
  • Wisdom from one of the most frequently cited books of the food-politics revolution

If books such as We are the WeatherHow Not to Die31-Day Food Revolution, or Fast Food Genocide have interested you, then The Food Revolution is the next book for you!

You, Recharged

By

You Can Get Unstuck

When author and podcaster Polly Campbell got tired of her hoodie smelling like pizza and her days being clouded by midlife over-exhaustion, emotional burnout, and boredom, she decided to get off the couch and reclaim her core energy. But could this burned-out, chronically ill, middle-aged mother of a teen rediscover her vitality? Yes. And so can you.

Small Steps, Big Energy. Self-help books for women often encourage you to throw out the life you’re living and create a fresh start. You, Rechargedisn’t about that. You don’t have to quit your mundane job, cut out cocktails, or sign-off of social media to recharge. Instead, Polly Campbell’s inspirational book is about adding things in—good habits, practices, fun, people, activities, self-care strategies—that ignite your essential energy, the sustainable source that fires you up from within and keeps you going during the good and bad.

Meaning Ignites Power. When we align with the things that matter to us and allow the “why” to guide us, we are energized. Sure, there are challenges, setbacks, and plenty of things that piss us off, but they don’t have to deplete us. They don’t have to leave us mentally exhausted or take our power. Instead, our energy can be refocused and redirected into things that we value. You, Recharged will help you discover the small but meaningful ways you can feel happier, healthier, and more alive.

In this personal development book, find:

  • Easy-to-apply, practical strategies to ease stress, boost energy, and improve health and well-being
  • Short chapters, delivered in a relatable, conversational tone, with plenty of humor
  • Hope and inspiration, so you know that you can also create a meaningful, satisfying life no matter how stuck, lost, bored, and physically exhausted you feel

A Powerful and Poetic Call to Ecofeminism & Environmental Activism

“In this book Jean Bolen expresses the essence of our deep connection to and inseparability from trees.” —Alice Walker

This masterful work by internationally known author and speaker Jean Shinoda Bolen provides an insightful look into the fusion of ecological issues and global gender politics.

Of trees and women. This book on the importance of trees grew out of Bolen’s experience mourning the loss of a Monterey pine that was cut down in her neighborhood. That, combined with her practice of walking among tall trees, led to her deep connection with trees and an understanding of their many complexities. From their anatomy and physiology, to trees as archetypal and sacred symbols, Bolen expertly explores the dynamics of ecological activism spiritual activism and sacred feminism. And, she invites us to join the movement to save trees.

Stories of those making a difference. While there is still much work to be done to address environmental problems, there are many stories of individuals and organizations rising up to make a change and help save our planet. The words and stories that Bolen weaves throughout this book are both inspirational and down-to-earth, calling us to realize what is happening to not only our trees, but our people. By writing about both the work of organizations like Greenpeace and the UN Commission on the Status of Women, Bolen highlights her passions and shares her unique vision for the world.

We can train so that we move better, think more clearly, feel energetic, and even live more efficiently.

Practical Mindfulness

Learn Calmness, Contentment, and Coping Skills

Practical Mindfulness is the one book I recommend to my patients, even when they don’t believe they want to start meditating." ―Lisa Goldstein, MD―Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist

Master the nuts and bolts of meditation, without the crystals and granola. This book is a no-nonsense, no-incense training guide to the life-changing benefits of mindfulness.

Training exercises that work. Practical Mindfulness approaches mindfulness and meditation from a hands-on, how-to, irreverent perspective–appealing directly to smart readers curious about meditation. By applying Dr. Sazima’s training routines, learn to spend more time in real engagement with the world. Cultivate a deeper appreciation of experiences, from the everyday to the extraordinary, and live your life more fully, wisely, and joyfully.

A practical approach to finding “home.” We all search for that safe, comfortable feeling of peace of mind–our inner “home.” When we face challenges–economic crisis or a life-threatening health problem–we can realize with blinding clarity there is no sustainable outside solution. Those without a more developed interior awareness can suffer stress, anxiety, and depression. Our real home, a place we can always return to no matter what, is actually inside of us. We’re practically there.

Meditation training from an expert. Dr. Sazima is a board-certified psychiatrist, educator of family doctors-in-training at Stanford’s Family Medicine Residency, and experience meditator and meditation teacher. He is also a survivor of a rare bone cancer who used the powerful practice of meditation to navigate his medical crisis. Now, he is on a “pay it forward” mission to help us gain a practical understanding and mastery of mindful awareness, and to show us why and how meditation works.

Readers of books such as 10% HappierThe Untethered SoulWherever You Go, There You Are; or Buddha’s Brain, will love Practical Mindfulness.
