The simple, powerful keys to optimal health and well-being.
We talk about these fundamentals ALL the time and this is my new favorite book on health. And, Tom Rath is one of my new favorite teachers.
His work is backed by a TON (!!!) of scientific research and he distills it all into very simple, fun, smart, practical tips we can apply *TODAY*! (My kind of guy.) Plus, you can tell he’s just a *really* good human. Super passionate, humble, hard-working, balanced and integrated while committed to making a huge difference in the world.
I HIGHLY recommend this book.
If you could only pick one book to optimize your health, you’d do very well to go with this one. It avoids the extremes of any one approach while integrating all the good stuff echoed among them. (Get a copy .)
As always, I’m excited to share some of my favorite Big Ideas so let’s jump straight in!
P.S. As I mentioned in our Note on another one of ’s books called Are You Fully Charged?, Tom also wrote one of our favorite children’s books called The Rechargeables. Basically Eat Move Sleep for kids. It’s genius. Emerson loves it and constantly talks about getting “recharged” as he eats, moves and sleeps. (The characters Poppy and Simon often hang out with us as well. :)
P.P.S. While we’re on the subject, other favorite children’s books include Your Fantastic Elastic Brain ( = neuroplasticity for kids—Emerson talks about his cerebellum, hippocampus, amygdala and pre-frontal cortex and I laugh as I type that) + a new fav: Obama’s Of Thee I Sing (a book he wrote for his daughters featuring American heroes—beautiful and inspiring). And, of course, The Little Engine that Could (“I think I can” is another one of E’s mantras) +Dr. Seuss’s The Places You’ll Go. hehe :)
