Top 5 reads of August 2021

Libraries have come a long way since they were first invented. During the Middle Ages, books were a valuable commodity and were therefore chained to the shelves. Today, books are not only more accessible but also more available. Digital libraries like Zendy have made it possible to browse millions of books, articles, and other manuscripts without having to step outside.

The plenitude of available resources can also be overwhelming in itself. For this reason, we keep coming back with a monthly list of top reads from Zendy Plus. This month’s series is packed with research, articles, and e-books about social issues, mental and physical well-being, the latest in orthodontic advancements, herbal medicine, and employee engagement.

Here are Zendy’s top 5 reads in August:

Read about Yoga

2. Yoga Journal (Magazine Issue)

Perhaps one of the reasons that yoga has become increasingly popular in our modern age is because its benefits are both physical and mental, allowing us to return to ourselves and bask in silence and harmony. This issue of Yoga Journal features many enlightening articles about different yoga poses for relaxation, tips for more effective meditation, and moves for better hip rotation. The issue also features a segment with the inspirational Dr Ingrid Yang who is using yoga to help COVID patients heal. By breathing with her patients in a rhythmic manner, Yang tries to counter the side effects of the predominant prescription for COVID-19 patients – isolation.
