As we dig our heels into the second month of 2021, I often find it tough to keep the energy and momentum that I had coming right out of a restful holiday season. One thing that always helps keep me focused until warmer days arrive is diving into a book that focuses on a particular aspect of productivity or organization.
A few members of our creative team decided to test this out together. We agreed we would followup with each other and share what we read in order to help keep that information in our brains and put it to good . And thus, the Posture Book Club was born.
Check out our selections below – additional recommendations are welcome!
