Dr Alecia Macrow runs a lifestyle-focused family practice called Thrive. A defining moment for her was the night she realised that she had it all; the job, the husband, and the family, but that she was too stressed out and anxious to truly appreciate it.
Now, she is an advocate for healthy living, practices gratitude for what she has, and wants to help other doctors do the same.
These are the top three books that inspired her to attend to her own health and wellbeing.
1. What the Fat by Grant Schofield et al
Professor Grant Schofield describes why it's time to swap the low fat, high-carb diet for one which is high in good fats and low in carbs.
2. Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker
An international bestseller, this book is written by a scientific expert, Professor Matthew Walker explores twenty years of cutting-edge research to solve the mystery of why sleep matters.
3. The Art of Frugal Hedonism by Annie Raser-Rowland
This book is a guide to spending less while enjoying life more.
“A little off track but this book was life-changing for me. It was such a departure from the rat race, and really made me examine what I was doing with my life!” Said Macrow.
