Books that Can Help Solve the Holistic Puzzle

These titles are resources that help restore the work-life balance.

According to the 2021 Mind the Workplace report conducted by Mental Health America, 85% of survey respondents agreed that workplace stress affects their mental health. With increased pressures and a greater blurring of the lines between work and home, resources for managing stress in both places are needed more than ever.

While the topic of wellness is too complex to cover in a short article, I’m recommending some recent book titles that focus on three specific areas of the holistic well-being puzzle: organization, time management and setting healthy boundaries.

Joy at Work: Organizing Your Professional Life” was written by Marie Kondo, author of the bestselling “The Life- Changing Magic of Tidying Up,” with Scott Sonenshein, author of “Stretch: Unlock the Power of Less — and Achieve More Than You Ever Imagined.” It describes some negative effects of disorganization in the workplace and gives suggestions for tidying desks and offices. Strategies for reducing clutter in the areas of digital work, time, decision-making, teams and even meetings round out the helpful content.

In “Set-Boundaries, Find-Peace: A Guide to Reclaiming Yourself,” licensed practical therapist Nedra Glover Tawwab guides the reader through the process of understanding, setting and reinforcing healthy boundaries — not only in relationships and at work, but also in the realms of social media and technology.

These titles and many more are available in a variety of formats at
