How to Make Your Backyard Cozy for Winter
Redbook 2hrs ago
The secret to enjoying icy temps? Follow the Norwegian saying, "there is no bad weather, just bad clothes." As we head into the winter season of Covid-19, we are putting our own twist on the aphorism: "there is no bad weather, just bad decor." Embracing outside activities throughout the winter can help us stay positive (without testing positive) and upbeat. Re-think your outdoor spaces and make them cold-weather friendly with plush furniture, toasty accessories, and a trusty heat lamp (and don't overlook a portable pizza oven). Here, we share the furniture and accessories you'll want to create your own personal winter wonderland. Just remember to bring an extra coat!

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
