3 Books To Help You Build Your Happiest Self #NewYearsGoals

Change is hard. It's difficult to shift established patterns and routines even when they don't always serve us the way we'd hope. Despite this, the energy of change is ever present in our lives. We make New Year's resolutions, set goals for ourselves, make plans for our futures and so on. Change is demanded by existence for us to grow and adapt. Although change is hard, there are books that can help make the road to self-discovery just a little less mystifying.

3. YOKE

In Sanskrit, yoga means to "yoke." To yoke mind and body, movement and breath, light and dark, the good and the bad. This larger idea of "yoke" is what Jessamyn Stanley calls the yoga of the everyday--a yoga that is not just about perfecting your downward dog but about applying the hard lessons learned on the mat to the even harder daily project of living.

In a series of deeply honest, funny autobiographical essays, Jessamyn explores everything from imposter syndrome to cannabis to why it's a full-time job loving yourself, all through the lens of yoke. She calls out an American yoga complex that prefers debating the merits of cotton versus polyblend leggings rather than owning up to its overwhelming Whiteness.
