Hey folks! Jonathan Su here. I'm taking a week off from the podcast—everyone needs to take rest weeks, after all!—but I wanted to share something from my friends at Macmillan Publishers.

A lot of people listen to music and podcasts while they work out, but audiobooks are another great entertainment option for your fitness routine. This week, I'm sharing an excerpt from Pocket Therapy, from author and psychotherapist Sarah Crosby. Pocket Therapy is a book designed to help you answer: "Who am I? What does it mean to be yourself or authentic?"

In this segment, Sarah discusses a concept called self-talk. I wanted to share this segment in particular because negative self-talk can be a detriment to our fitness routines. If you want to hear more, you can find Pocket Therapy at your local bookstore, or online wherever you buy books.

I'll be back next week with an episode on massage guns. See you then!
