Reintegration Reads: January 2016
Each month, the Center for Reintegration will pick a book that touches upon mental health and give a brief review of it on our blog. Read along with us as we enjoy memoirs, research findings, biographies, novels, and academic texts as they relate to mental well-being and reintegration for all. If you have any suggestions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy 2016 to our Reintegration community! For our January book pick this month we are reading Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin. This book looks at how we as humans develop habits; and what we can do to make them stick. It begins in a unique way to other texts that discuss habit formation; it begins by assisting the reader gain self-knowledge as to how they individually respond to expectations. The rest of the book provides strategies to help form good habits, tricks to detect when we are tempted to stop a good habit (or begin a bad one), and methods of defining ourselves by what we do everyday. It is an insightful read, and perfect for the start of the new year. Enjoy!
