How to Be Well
I don’t often cover health books here—there are so many, all filled with worthy but seemingly similar content. But Dr. Frank Lippman’s updated edition of How to Be Well caught my eye. “[A] manual of the essential skills that anyone can use to navigate safely and smoothly through the wild terrain of wellness today,” this one is so gorgeously designed that I genuinely wanted to keep looking at it. Lippman’s advice covers everything from bone broth to foam rollers to electromagnetic frequencies. A lot of what’s here is textbook health-service journalism fare, but also included is a list of healthy fats (think smoothies, tahini, Brussels sprouts with bacon), eight ways to “harness the power of dark to improve your sleep,” 10 baking-soda cleaning hacks and more. An index of basic protocols for common complaints and goals—brain fog, acne, weight loss, anxiety—is an especially nice way to close out this book.
