Books help keep resolutions—January 14, 2011
Happy New Year! As we say goodbye to 2010, many people set new goals or New Year’s resolutions. So I thought I would start out the New Year with a new me. Some of the resolutions people make are financial, health-related or for better overall well-being. Some of these goals can be hard to reach and to keep. This could be that we either set our goals too high or we don’t have enough information to help us reach our desired goal. I have pulled a few of the books that might help you reach your goals.
The library has many financial books, but these are a couple that I thought could be helpful. The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom by Suze Orman. Suze asks “Are you in control of your money-or is your money in control of you?” A One-Week Plan for a Lifetime of Financial Freedom: Life or Debt by Stacy Johnson. This book has a step-by-step program for eliminating debts forever. Or look for Cashproof Your Life by Thomas A Schweich, a book with a comprehensive, three-part plan for protecting yourself from financial disasters.
If you want to change your outlook on life, you might want to try these books. The Happiness Makeover by M.J. Ryan can give helpful instruction on how to teach yourself to be happy and enjoy every day. Take It From Me by Erin Brockovich tells of her personal struggles and how she pulled on her inner strength to achieve success. Change your life in 30 days by Rhonda Britten provides you with the tools you will need to make extraordinary changes in your life.
The last set of books that I want to share with you may help you reach that health goal that you want to achieve. Pilates Plus by Alan Herdman is designed for 50+ but can be used by anyone with somewhat limited mobility. Total Body Make Over by Bob Greene. This book is an accelerated program of exercise and nutrition for maximum results in minimum time. The library has a wide variety of books on health and exercise for all skill levels and age groups. Whatever your goals are for the New Year, we can help you achieve them. Start by setting the goal of exercising your library card!
