1000+ Little Things Happy Successful People Do Differently

By Marc & Angel Chernoff (Tarcher Perigree)

Other than its less-than-catchy title, this inspiring new handbook, by the New York Times bestselling authors of Getting Back to Happy (definitely catchier!), offers simple truths and easy insights to help readers get through the rough patches in life with grace, support and self-love. Organized in sections like “Happiness,” “Relationships,” “Productivity,” “Self-Love” and more, the overarching message is to be mindful, and find ways to appreciate and be grateful for all that you have, every day--with lots of inspiring tips along the way.

Dig Your Heels In

By Joan Kuhl (Berrett-Koehler)

“We cannot change what we are not aware of, and once we are aware, we cannot help but change.”-- Sheryl Sandberg, Lean In

This spirit of transformation underlies Dig Your Heels In, by Joan Kuhl, as she encourages women to build the careers they want by leading their companies toward positive change (think: equal pay and paid family leave). Kuhl shares advice on how to address sexism gracefully and combat self-limiting beliefs -- for example, how to reaffirm your self-worth amid Imposter Syndrome -- while advocating for workplace equality. Dig Your Heels In is a handbook for rising above an oppressive corporate culture -- and leaning into your natural leadership abilities.

Wild Beauty

By Jana Blankenship (Ten Speed Press)

We’ve been covering the lovely natural beauty brand Captain Blankenship, since it was launched by Jana Blankenship in 2009. Her new book, Wild Beauty, is a handy DIY guide to creating your own natural beauty products, by relying on organic ingredients that are not hard to source. This pretty tome makes it easy to harness the power of nature to help you find your natural beauty sweet spot--inside and out.
