Southern Charm and Etiquette.

This was an easy book to listen to as Reese reads it herself. She is about as southern as you get. Her book Whiskey in a Teacup reminds me of the value of traditions, family time, manners and teaching our children how to have conversations and respect for each other. You will find yourself reflecting on your own childhood traditions and, if you are like me, sad that you don’t do more.

She offers family games, recipes and stories that her southern family experienced in their community. Simple things like the art of getting dressed!!! Workout clothes are for working out and sweating…..then you change! I love this!  You will enjoy this book…plus some great southern recipes!

Rise and Shine – The Miracle Morning – Hal Elrod

This book will change your mornings/day for the better. Even if you think you have a pretty good morning routine, this book will level up your purpose for waking up everyday. You will learn about your level ten life.

Your Day will become SO much more productive, inspired and goal centered. Your mind will start to focus on your truth/goals and you be motivated to change the world. One day at a time. The trick is to stay accountable to yourself for 30 days.

It’s easy to get excited and start the first week. Then the weekend comes and you want to relax and sleep in, the next day you don’t complete your morning routine and then before you know it, it’s back to normal. You keep doing what you have done.

STOP!! Set your alarm. Use the steps and make a plan. A friend told me about this mediation app. I have not found anything this great until now. It’s wonderful for sleep, mediation, and focus. The sounds, voices and background are soothing and create a relaxed state in minutes. The name is Insight Timer. I listen to a lot of meditation resources. THIS IS AMAZING. It’s a free download on itunes….here’s a picture.

Enjoy your Mornings!

Creating Habits – The Easy Way

James Clear is my favorite author this month. He released a new book called Atomic Habits. The pre-sale sample was so great I recommended this before I even finished it! It was an easy read and I kept going back to reread sections over and over, it was extremely refreshing. He also creates a great news letter, Facebook and LinkedIn posts.  I am always impressed with the insights to healthy living. He offers great reminders to stay fit, sparking good habits and daily tips for self improvement.
