Yes reads – shelfie inspiration
When you are a book worm, the opportunity to peer at somebody else’s bookshelves is akin to a teenage boys feelings about the magazines on the top shelf in a newsagents. It’s exciting stuff. So we were beside ourselves when the magnificent Sam Baker (of blog crush fame, The Pool) shared her shelfie.
Not only can you scope out her bookshelf in its full glory, but she also gives us her top 5 recommendations…all of which have already made it onto the yes reading list!
Yes Food – Making your food choices healthier
Team Year of the Yes have been working hard to eat healthily these last couple months, so we were delighted to discover Stylist’s list of small tweaks to make our eating habits healthier.
Some of them may surprise you (who knew that you shouldn’t actually drink water while you are eating) but if some quick wins can make a difference, then maybe it will leave room for the odd chocolate bar here and there..

yes to picking yourself up
We all have our low moments, and sometimes in those it can be hard to pick yourself up and remember exactly why you need to keep on saying yes.
This article from Huffington Post has some really great reminders of how to pick yourself and dust yourself off when you need it…so that you can keep on saying yes!
yes exercise – yoga
Half of team year of the yes (Emma) has had a long held interest in trying either pilates or yoga, that has been held back by the expectation that lack of flexibility would make it impossible.
This article from the Huffington Post really makes you think again about that, and many of the other preconceptions that you may have. So if you are considering taking it up, why not have a read of the article and then get yourself signed up to a class.

It doesn’t really matter if you have any desire at all to work in the career that they work in, you can always learn something along the way that will help you in your own career.

yes health – the last one
This one is on a bit more of a serious note, and it is something we keep harping on about. But it is so, so important.
Breast Cancer Now, a newly formed charity made up of Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Campaign, believe that if we act now we can stop any woman dying of breast cancer by 2050. They released a really poignant video that you have to watch. It will remind you how important it is to check yourself. And of course, if you can do spare some pennies for Breast Cancer Now to carry out their all important research.
