WELLTH: How I Learned to Build a Life Not a Résumé by Jason Wachob

As an avid reader, I am always on the lookout for a good book to read. I tend to change genre's frequently so I never get bored. I will read mysteries, romance, self-help, thrillers and so much more but those are the first types of books that I look for. 

I was recently sent WELLTH: How I Learned to Build a Life, Not a Résumé by Jason Wachob and I have to share with you how much I really enjoyed this book. WELLTH: How I Learned to Build a Life, Not a Résumé, is the first book by mindbodygreen.com founder Jason Wachob. This book redefines successful living while offering readers a new life currency to build on, one that is steeped in wellbeing—Wellth.

WELLTH: How I Learned to Build a Life, Not a Résumé by Jason WachobAbout WELLTH

“Many of us aren’t satisfied with just trying to accumulate the most money and toys. The good life is no longer just about the material—instead, it can be found in a lifestyle that is devoted to mental, physical, and emotional health. A wellthy existence is one in which happiness is attainable, health is paramount, and daily living is about abundance. It’s a life in which work is purposeful; friendships are deep and plentiful; and there’s a daily sense of richness or overflowing joy. But since there’s no one-size-fits-all definition for a wellthy existence, I hope this book will serve as a guide to help you embark on your own personal journey that is both unique and meaningful.”

WELLTH: How I Learned to Build a Life, Not a Résumé by Jason WachobEat. Move. Work. Believe. Explore. Breathe. Connect. Love. Heal. Thank. Ground. Live. Laugh.

These are the building blocks of Wellth. In this blend of memoir and prescriptive advice, Jason Wachob shows us all how to enjoy truly “wellthy” lives—lives that are deeply rich in every conceivable way.  Through his experience and personal story, as well as in exclusive material from popular expert contributors (including Dr. Frank Lipman, Dr. Lissa Rankin, Joe Cross, Charlie Knoles, Kathryn Budig, Dr. Aviva Romm, and Dr. Sue Johnson), we learn how we, too, can embrace this new movement, while exploring what we can do to make frequent deposits into our own “wellth” accounts. What’s your life worth to you?  Come and explore it.

WELLTH: How I Learned to Build a Life, Not a Résumé by Jason WachobMy thoughts on WELLTH

I think that it is very easy in our lives to get so busy that we never truly feel fulfilled. I know for years that I lived like I just needed one more thing and then my life would be complete. I never truly realized that my life was complete. I simply added to it as I grew older.

My blog is about living the good life and this is really what WELLTH is about. This quote explains it so well, “The good life is no longer just about the material – instead it can be in a lifestyle that is devoted to mental, physical, spiritual and emotional health.”

This explains so much about the book and indeed the life that I try to live. No longer am I solely focused on earning money for my family. I want to experience everything with my family and I want to live a peaceful, happy life. I want the same for my husband and kids. This comes from all of those things that Jason Wachob touches on in his book:

Mental: I take time out for myself. No work. No kids. Just me. I read books or do another hobby of mine.

Physical: I joined a gym with my family a few months ago and we all work out together. I have never felt better. I take yoga classes as well.

Spiritual: I make certain I connect spiritually with myself.

Emotional: Doing all of those things above make me feel so much more fulfulled than I ever have in my life. This is WELLTH.

If you feel something is missing in your life or if you have just learned that what you need to be fulfilled, this book is for you. Give it a read!
