Another year is upon us and with each new year is a new beginning. It’s a time to hit the reset button on our lives, be it for personal improvement, fitness, or professional development. As you make your New Year’s resolutions, you can utilize our collection for resources to aid in keeping your 2021 goals.

A new year is your chance to get ahold of your finances. Happy Go Money: Spend Smart, Save Right, and Enjoy Life by Melissa Leong gives you a no-nonsense yet simplistic way to save money and pay down debt without it being too much of a strain on your life.

If you desire to tackle a new hobby or reacquaint yourself with an old one, you should read Craftfulness: Mend Yourself by Making Things by Rosemary Davidson. Keep your hands and mind busy with crafts, DIYs, and home projects while enjoying time at home this winter.

Health and fitness are popular New Year’s resolutions. Whether your goal is to exercise more or eat better, Family Fit Plan: A 30-day Wellness Transformation can help you and your family get healthier in 2021. This book covers nutrition, fitness, and establishing healthy habits to aid you on your health journey.

Caring for our mental health, in addition to physical health, is a priority for many this year. Freedom from Anxious Thoughts & Feelings: a Two Step Mindfulness Approach for Moving Beyond Fear & Worry by Scott Symington can help you cope with anxiety. Mindfulness: Where it Comes from and What it Means by Sarah Shaw introduces the Buddhist philosophy of “Mindfulness” and how it can be used as a means of increasing mental focus and reducing stress. The Healthy Deviant: A Rule Breaker’s Guide to Being Healthy in an Unhealthy World by Pilar Gerasimo offers up unconventional advice that challenges our preconceived notions of mental and physical wellbeing in order to thrive in an ever-changing world.

Perhaps your goal this year is to improve your work-life balance. #Chill: Turn Off Your Job and Turn on Your Life by Bryan E. Robinson will help you structure your time to enjoy your life outside the workplace.
