La nueva ciencia de un arte olvidado (No Ficción)
James Nestor - 2020-05-26
Calificación de Goodreads
No matter what you eat, how much you exercise, how skinny or young or wise you are, none of it matters if you're not breathing properly. There is nothing more essential to our health and well-being than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat 25,000 times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences. Journalist James Nestor travels the world to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it. The answers aren't found in pulmonology labs, as we might expect, but in the muddy digs of ancient burial sites, secret Soviet facilities, New Jersey choir schools, and the smoggy streets of S�o Paulo. Nestor tracks down men and women exploring the hidden science behind ancient breathing practices like Pranayama, Sudarshan Kriya, and Tummo and teams up with pulmonary tinkerers to scientifically test long-held beliefs about how we breathe. Modern research is showing us that making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can jump-start athletic performance; rejuvenate internal organs; halt snoring, asthma, and autoimmune disease; and even straighten scoliotic spines. None of this should be possible, and yet it is. Drawing on thousands of years of medical texts and recent cutting-edge studies in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry, and human physiology, Breath turns the conventional wisdom of what we thought we knew about our most basic biological function on its head. You will never breathe the same again.

Love that one of our Thrivers, Emily Mias has discovered one of my favorite books, Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art by James Nestor. It came out in 2020, but the science and wisdom are timeless.      fuente

The Small Changes That Change Everything
BJ Fogg - 2020-01-01 (publicado por primera vez en 2019)
Calificación de Goodreads
The world’s leading expert on habit formation shows how you can have a happier, healthier life: by starting small. When it comes to change, tiny is mighty. Start with two pushups a day, not a two-hour workout; or five deep breaths each morning rather than an hour of meditation. In Tiny Habits, B.J. Fogg brings his experience coaching more than 40,000 people to help you lose weight, de-stress, sleep better, or achieve any goal of your choice.  You just need Fogg’s behavior formula: make it easy, make it fit your life, and make it rewarding. Whenever you get in your car, take one yoga breath. Smile.  Whenever you get in bed, turn off your phone. Give yourself a high five.  Change can be easy—once it starts, it grows.  Let B.J. Fogg show you exactly how.
Arianna Huffington
Tiny Habits by @bjfogg was published on the last day of 2019, but I’m going to call it the best book of 2020 (so far). At a time when there's a "painful gap between what people want and what they actually do,” it's a blueprint for changing our approach.      fuente

Discover how turning off screens for 24 hours each week can benefit your brain, body, and soul with 24/6 by Tiffany Shlain. This tech pioneer and filmmaker provides a blueprint for living in our 24/7 world by introducing a strategy called "Technology Shabbat," where screens are turned off for one day each week. Drawing from the ancient ritual of Shabbat, Shlain shares her personal experience, the neuroscience behind it, and the history of weekly rest. Through humor and wisdom, she provides a compelling case for why we need to bring back this ritual to rebalance ourselves and our society.

Discover the groundbreaking book that's an inspiring call to action for increasing empathy in a world that's experiencing an "empathy deficit."

Written with clarity and passion, this "wide-ranging practical guide to making the world better" (NPR) is a must-read for anyone ready to accept the challenge.
