Redbook 2hrs ago
Dolly Parton—queen of country music, style icon, and wildly successful businesswoman—is well accustomed to sharing bits and pieces of what she's learned throughout the years since her humble beginnings in Tennessee. She may be known for her older, more classic songs like "Coat of Many Colors," "9 to 5," and "Jolene," but she's still gifting us with brand new music even after decades in the business. (Dolly even recorded and released a brand new song during the coronavirus pandemic!) Of course, music isn't the only field she excels in. Between her many movies, her one-of-a-kind Dollywood amusement park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and her amazing children's literacy organization (Dolly Parton's Imagination Library), Dolly's star power is totally undeniable.Thankfully, the 74-year-old is willing to share her secrets, and has spent plenty of time dishing out genius one-liners and words of wisdom. Whether she's doling out warnings about letting "living" get in the way of "life," or making hilarious jokes about the—ahem—artificial parts of her appearance, Dolly always seems to have the perfect piece of wisdom to impart on her many followers and fans. We'd all do well to heed her excellent advice! Here, we've rounded up the Queen of Country's most sage counsel.

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.
