Books You NEED on Your Reading List

As a new year creeps up, these are the books you must read in 2022.

With a new year right around the corner, it’s time to think what you want to educate yourself about in 2022. Whether it be cooking and homemade remedies, art, culture, travel, personal growth or sustainable living, books offer a powerful insight into many aspects of life. 

Here at the Wellbeing Collective we believe reading is an important and integral part of living a healthy and happy life. We also believe that what you read is just as important. The books you read and information you consume should help to nourish you and assist you in growing into the strong, caring, confident and intelligent individual we know you are. 

Along with this belief, reading is also proven to have a range of benefits, including; improving life satisfaction, self-esteem and the ability to handle difficult circumstances. Reading also helps to reduce the feelings of stress, while reducing mental decline in older individuals. 

Now that you know all the benefits of reading, here are the books we think you should add to your reading list.
