Walking and "reading"

Updated: Apr 5, 2020

At a time like this, we turn to artists to remind us who we are and how to hold on. I've picked up a new habit that's good for the mind, body and soul.

Spending excessive amounts of time alone can be a real challenge on our mental health. Our normal, healthy lifestyle patterns or even our go-to distractions may not be available. Here are some book recommendations and how to listen

“The walking helps get me outside and discover parts of nearby neighbourhoods I never knew existed. Checking out all the kids' drawings in the windows reminds me that I'm not living in a real-life version of I am Legend."

Apps for Accessing Audiobooks

Libby - you can sign in with your library cards, put holds on books that aren't available and cruise the "what's available" section for popular, new titles. ITS FREE!

Audible - for $14/month you can pick one book of your choosing. The selection is superior to Libby and you can purchase for the retail price other books.
