While sorting through all of my “stuff” preparing for my move, I realized how many books I have. My mom asked me if I really need all of them and the truth is there is important tidbits in all of them. So in between sorting through my personal collection (which is almost worthy of a Hoarders episode), here are some awesome resources that I would recommend adding to your personal collection.
The list is a mix of yoga, trauma, and self-care books, websites and such. Feel free to look through the list and use what resonates with you:)
