10 Books For Recent College Grads

Here are the 10 best books for college graduates. If you are feeling stuck, starting a new work chapter in your life, following a business venture or entering the workforce after bypassing college, you can still find something valuable in these books. - Ali in Bloom

I’m thankful to work at the company I do for many reasons. One of them: they promote ongoing education and learning. Through a number of helpful, enthusiastic co-workers, I’ve gained a bunch of career, self-help and motivational book recommendations. After keeping my own list for the past year, I really felt it was time to share the 10 best books for college graduates, according to my co-workers (and don’t worry, I trust them). Honestly, though, these books seem helpful for a lot more than just recent college grads. If you’re feeling stuck in your career, starting a new work chapter in your life, heading out on your own to follow a business venture or simply entering the workforce for the first time while bypassing college, I think you’ll still find something valuable in these books … or at least one or two of them.

Meditation for Anxiety (Plus, a Free Guided Meditation Audio!)

Worry. Nervousness. Stress. The feeling that something is coming. Meditation for anxiety is here to help.

We’ve all been there. That sense of worry, nervousness, stress and the feeling that something is coming… but sometimes that small sense turns into something bigger: full-blown clinical anxiety, and it can eat away at you. Recent studies show that 41.6 percent of college students struggle with generalized anxiety disorder, and that number seems to only be growing. (1) I too have had my own struggles with anxiety throughout college and into my adult life. With years of experience working with private yoga clients and students, I have seen many people come to me for help with their anxiety. So, how do I help them and how do I keep my anxiety at bay? One word. Meditation.
