1. Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art
Author: by James Nestor
A New York Times BestsellerA Washington Post Notable Nonfiction Book of 2020 Named a Best Book of 2020 by NPR A fascinating scientific, cultural, spiritual and evolutionary history of the way humans breatheand how we’ve all been doing it wrong for a long, long time.
Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Big Magic and Eat Pray LoveNo 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 twenty-five thousand 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 So Paulo.
2. Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams
Author: by Matthew Walker PhD
Why We Sleep is an important and fascinating bookWalker taught me a lot about this basic activity that every person on Earth needs. I suspect his book will do the same for you. Bill Gates A New York Times bestseller and international sensation, this stimulating and important book (Financial Times) is a fascinating dive into the purpose and power of slumber.
With two appearances on CBS This Morning and Fresh Air’s most popular interview of 2017, Matthew Walker has made abundantly clear that sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why we suffer such devastating health consequences when it is absent.
Compared to the other basic drives in lifeeating, drinking, and reproducingthe purpose of sleep remains more elusive. Within the brain, sleep enriches a diversity of functions, including our ability to learn, memorize, and make logical decisions. It recalibrates our emotions, restocks our immune system, fine-tunes our metabolism, and regulates our appetite.
