Craving less screen time this summer? I've rounded up the 10 books I’m most excited about reading right now. Themes include body positivity, anti-diet, happiness & Health at Every Size. I also snuck in a few non-nutrition/wellness books for when your brain is in need of a change. Click here to take a look at the enlightening list.

May was a bit of a strange (read: emotional) month for me. My partner was away and the pace of my business was ebbing more than flowing. This space, albeit uncomfortable, forced me to take a closer look at the parts of my mood that I’m in control of. More specifically, the behaviors that were bringing me down.

One behavior that came to mind is the amount of time I’ve been spending in front of screens. My social media boundaries seem to be dissolving and (uncoincidentally) comparison trap spirals have become more common.

So this summer I’m setting the intention of swapping Insta-story watching with real people connecting and real book reading. Because my brain and relationships are in need of some (non-technological) nourishment.

If you too are hungry for less screen time, I invite you to join me. I’ve listed the 10 books I’m most excited about diving into this summer. (And I snuck in a couple non-nutrition/wellness related books at the end of this list just for fun!)
