This workbook, designed to help learn a more effective way to deal with the stress of daily life through mindfulness, is an excellent suggestion for women in their 20’s. Often this group hasn’t had the life experience or instruction from their parents on how to manage daily life or find enjoyment in their daily existence. These useful skills can be carried through a lifetime. The program was developed from my own triumph over anxiety and depression, and is based on proven psychology and the science of neuroplasticity – the ability of the brain to create new neural pathways and overcome past trauma.

I believe every woman, trying to conceive or not, should read this book to learn more about her menstrual cycle. This is the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) bible. No, I am not talking about the Rhythm Method. FAM is based on your individual body and menstrual cycle. Ms. Weschler explains how to use basal body temperature (your oral temperature upon waking), cervical mucus, and cervical position to determine if and when you are ovulating, a normal cycle, and when to be concerned.

Despite the title, the book is great for women in their twenties. Are you in your twenties and worried it’s ‘now or never’? The media loves to shame women who may have other interests than simply having a baby and to scare them with fear mongering statistics but the truth is that getting pregnant in your thirties and older is not only possible but highly probable. We offer 12 narratives from real women who had babies over 35 couples with the best coping advice, social science research, clear explanation of fertility facts, and Pregtiquette (the etiquette of trying to conceive and pregnancy).

I recommend this book for all readers because the protagonist is thirteen at the beginning of the story, and it’s a gritty, gripping thriller that will be sure to keep readers enthralled from the first page to the last. Set in the Texas Panhandle, it tackles the tough topics of family, friends, and how it can cost a young person to fall in with the wrong crowd. In this case, the main characters are young adults and female, so the perspective is more relatable to female readers.

Sexual health is important in your 20’s! 43% of all women experience sexual dysfunction at some point in their lives and 10-28% of reproductive-aged women have vulvodynia (Pukall, 2016). Treatment for painful sex conditions such as vaginismus, vulvodynia and dyspareunia can be expensive, as many are not covered by insurance, but there is a self-treatment option available for them. I wrote this book so women with these treatable sexual pain disorders no longer have to suffer, and they can do this in the privacy of their own home” says Heather Jeffcoat, Los Angeles-based physical therapist and owner of Femina Physical Therapy.

With so much food and body obsession in our culture this book is a breath of fresh air. It talks about the myth of using weight, BMI, and size to determine someone’s health.
