With heat, holidays and humidity to contend with, why not relax and unwind with some meditative reads? If you like to keep it indoors, Total Yoga For You and Danielle Collins’ Face Yoga will ensure you’re covered from top to toe, while The Rock Balancer’s Guide is just asking to be taken out into the big wide world.
If you’re looking to get ahead with some personal development before the academic year kicks off again, The Art of Decision Making and Brian Mayne’s Self Mapping will help you look inside yourself and take the actions that need to be taken.
Finally, at the end of the month we’ll be bringing out our well-loved Every Day Matters diaries for 2020, so if you’re looking to get ahead on some organisation or tick off a few Christmas gifts early, now’s the time!
