I would recommend 168 hours by Laura Vanderkam which is a great book on time management (and fun to read), as well as the books by Gretchen Rubin. They are both american authors, but not touchy feely, and actually full of practical helpful ideas to improve everyday life.
Delores, I like some of the ideas (but not all) on the intuitive eating movement. Will look forward to hearing what you think about it. If you enjoy that kind of thing, Bee Wilson's books on eating in a more balanced way are really great eg 'this is not a diet book' which is inspiring.
