We know your to-do list is overflowing, but here’s a list of books to help you boost your energy level, be more content and focus on priorities:
• Take Time for Your Life by Cheryl Richardson. Prepare to do some self-assessments, such as “Pinpoint what’s draining you.” Beyond the fill-in-the-blank exercises, Richardson offers coaching for bringing your life’s priorities back into focus.
• The Exhaustion Cure by Laura Stack. Each chapter lists “energy bandits” and “energy boosters” to help you on all the major fronts—diet, nutrition, pacing, etc. You’ll like the scores of quick fixes in this book.
• Career Contentment by Jeffrey Garton. We don’t have much control over the big stuff—like global warming or unbearable colleagues. But Garton says we can have a “life is good” feeling on the job.
