World Book Day, Our Team’s best books!

Mar 2, 2020

We’re all quite avid readers here at goPhysio, often sharing our favourite reads, key messages and top tips from the books we’ve read. As the annual World Book Day arrives, some of our team share their favourite health & wellbeing themed books.

Jade from our Patient Services Team recommends The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod.

I’ve been practising the miracle morning for nearly 4 years now. I find starting my day this way makes it much more productive.


The basis of The Miracle Morning includes:

  • Silence
  • Affirmations
  • Visualisation
  • Exercise
  • Reading
  • Scribing

Highly recommend!

The Fitness Chef: Eat What You Like and Lose Weight Forever

No cheats, no stress healthy eating book that has an insight into all the ‘fad’ diets, detox teas, fasting methods. Not just recipes but information on food myths, macronutrients and exercise tips.

And something a bit more tongue and cheek….Keep F*cking Going

Not so much a book, but a journal to keep on track of anything health and fitness related. A realistic and current motivational tool to help you reach a target. Keeping healthy and fit can be hard and frustration is normal, hence the title!

Our Non-Clinical Director, Fiona, also has 2 book recommendations.

Her first is The 4 Pillar Plan by Dr Chatterjee. This book gives a wonderful overview of some really simple and easy to follow steps, split into 4 key pillars, to help improve every aspect of your life.

Her favourite book of all time is The Boy, the mole, the fox and the horse. Gorgeous illustrious, packed with inspiration, comfort and joy throughout, with messages which everyone can relate to.

Roz also picked The Boy, the mole, the fox and the horse. Roz said,

I love it because you can just pick it up and open it at any page, even if you have only got a few minutes, and read something that will make you instantly smile to yourself and feel happy.  In just a few words and with some beautiful sketches Charlie Mackesy manages to get across some very key messages that we can all relate to in some way.

Our Clinical Director, Paul, has chosen The Fear Bubble: Harness Fear and Live Without Limits, by Ant Middleton.

A great read to help harness one’s inner strength and banish any self limiting thoughts or behaviours and start living your best life from today – really useful mental strength tips that have helped with my marathon training!

Paul, Clinical Director
