Joy is a fleeting emotion, but it’s possible to experience it regularly by cultivating “joy on demand.” The author explains how to find this emotion within yourself using a simple three-step process that trains your mind to naturally tend towards joy. He also emphasises the importance of practicing mindfulness, kindness and compassion every day. We could all use a little more of that in life, right?

Natural Beauty Skin Care

Natural skin care can bring out the best in your skin, yet many of today’s beauty products are laced with chemicals and toxic fillers. The author of Natural Beauty Skin Care says switch out store-bought brands with natural products. She explains how easy it is to get back to the basics and make your own luxurious face scrubs, hair masks, skin creams and even acne treatments. With holistic ingredients like coconut oil, aloe vera, honey and witch hazel, embrace a natural skin care routine that your grandmother would be proud of.

Spark Joy

Up to your eyeballs in household clutter? This illustrated manual is about the Japanese art of organising your house and tidying up. From diagrams depicting a great way to arrange your kitchen cabinets to how to properly fold and hang clothing, the author’s signature decluttering KonMari method will leave you and your home feeling lighter. Her mantra is to hold on to an item only if it “sparks joy” and makes you happy. Otherwise, get rid of it!

How to Be Alive

How to Be Alive

This book encourages people to live meaningful and fulfilling lives, which ultimately rest at the junction of feeling good and doing good. Although this practice relies heavily on your own personal values and passions, the author is there to guide you into a happier way of life in a way that contributes to the wellbeing of your community and ultimately helps the world.

Eat Fat, Get Thin

Eat Fat Get Thin

Contrary to what many mainstream dieting magazines and weight loss programs may say, all fat isn’t bad for you. In fact, eating a balanced diet containing fat is not only essential for certain body functions but it can attribute to proper weight loss, too. This book focuses on benefits of healthy fat, which is the kind found in avocados, coconuts, eggs, seeds and nuts. Inside the book are recipes, shopping lists, and even meal plans that teach you how to properly incorporate “good” fats into your meals. While you’re eating healthy, our team at SuperBee suggests going the extra mile and wrapping your new favorite snacks in reusable wax wraps or storing them in eco-friendly containers, too.
