Books for wellbeing: 'Nourish: Mind, Body & Soul'



'Nourish: Mind, Body and Soul'

I once held a job at a well known book chain and spent many hours a day unpacking fresh books in their rightful places. When i wasn't lucky enough to be reliving my former years in teen fiction, i spent more time than allocated lingering around the self help aisles, fascinated by their bold claims to be life changing. Some of these books were spiritual, some religious and others written from personal experience. This is when i made my first wellbeing book purchase - 'The Little Book of Confidence'. With it's claims of confidence, i was sure the little book would be the catalyst in re-branding a happier, more confident version of myself. Fast forward a number of years, and it seems my habits haven't much changed. My latest purchase in the wellness category was Amber Rose, Holly Davidson & Sadie Frost's 'Nourish: Mind, Body & Soul'. A book after my own heart, addressing all the areas i feel passionate for, with gorgeous photography from the offset. It covers all the areas that contribute to a general sense of wellbeing - from the inside, out. 

The book is divided into three sections. The food section has wholesome ingredients and home cooking as a central focus. It is filled with nourishing recipes, some of which include Amber's own nostalgic family recipes, to healthy alternatives on classically indulgent food such as banana and coconut pancakes and chocolate mousse. Sadie then goes on to share her personal experiences with some holistic methods to better wellbeing which is so refreshing. This section covers yoga, meditation, personal health and tips on improving your surrounding environment for wellness, in detail. In the final part of the book Holly shares her personal story and takes a unique approach to explaining exercise by focusing on mindful thinking. She further covers the importance of exercise for general wellbeing, and includes a detailed four week exercise programme. To say i completely adore and recommend this book is an understatement. It's everything i hope a book on wellbeing to be - honest, informative and written from personal experience. Most of all, i admire that this book is honest. Three women speaking from the heart, passing on what they've learnt and sharing their inspirations.
