You really should be reading! Our Summer reading list

Self Enrichment

Long daylight hours mean more energy via our bio clocks thanks to higher serotonin levels and sunshine mood boosts. Take advantage and stay up late or start reading early to shape shift into your best self

  • How to Change Your Mind – Michael Pollan. Or really, anything Michael Pollan.
  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*#k – Mark Manson on positive thinking and dealing with modern day increases in stress + anxiety (what we’re all about!)

Herbs + Home

Perfect morning or evening mantra-style reads. Small daily doses reminding you to eat plants + soak up the solar rays + be an environmentally friendly goddess

  • Alkaline Herbal Medicine: Reverse Disease and Heal the Electric Body – Aqiyl Aniys. An exploration into human genetics – ‘diets centered on consumption of natural alkaline plant foods and ample exposure to the sun (heard!) support healthy gene expression’. If you nerd out on this like we do this is a must
  • A Zero Waste Life in Thirty Days – Anita Vandyke on reducing your waste by 80% in one month. Oh yeah, and did I mention Anita is a rocket scientist? Cheers to supporting what she calls an ‘eco-luxe’ lifestyle + boss babes

Non-Fiction

 Biographical, historical or cultural reading of real shit helps keep us grounded. Also, humans are fascinating.

  • Education – Tara Westover. An incredible true story that will help you to evoke real gratitude for your own life + upbringing
  • Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind – Yuval Noah Harari. Helping to explain us as humans to ourselves

Pure Entertainment (for the intelligent)

In the summer you need to relax + unwind, but there’s no need to sacrifice intelligent writing, vocabulary expansion and brain activation whilst reading captivating books. Never settle for less than your best mind. A few of our favorite reads (and re-reads) in the last month.

  • On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous – Ocean Vuong
  • The Parisian – Cultural immersion via literature. Beautiful reminder that across time + space we all have human emotions, dreams, desires. The writing style is almost lyrical in its beauty and I can guarantee you get some new vocabulary words.
  • Islands in the Stream – Ernest Hemingway. We had to throw in one classic lest we forget our past. Be forewarned – Hemingway makes you want to make cocktails starting around 1 p.m. but don’t worry, its summer….
