For many of us, the myriad demands on our time, energy, and focus have become overwhelming. And no matter how we try to organize ourselves―whether with to-do lists, prioritization, or the latest productivity system―we always seem to find ourselves in situations where we sacrifice one essential priority to achieve another. But what if there was another way?
In The Holistic You: Integrating Your Family, Finances, Faith, Friendships, and Fitness, the popular authors and speakers Rabbi Daniel and Susan Lapin deliver an inspiring and practical discussion of how to become what English poet William Wordsworth called a “happy warrior”―one who confronts every daily challenge with joy and confidence. In the book, you’ll learn how to achieve greater success while living a more joyful, peaceful, and tranquil life by balancing and integrating all the different parts of your life.
The authors demonstrate how to implement their one-of-a-kind 5F system, incorporating faith, family, friendship, finance, and fitness. Instead of treating various areas of our lives as competitors, where energy and time devoted to one area necessarily takes from another, Rabbi Lapin and Susan show you how to arrange your life so that effort expended in each area supports the other areas as well.
The Holistic You offers insights and wisdom drawn from over 3,000 years of Jewish teachings and the couple’s own extensive experience working with people from a variety of backgrounds and religions.
An indispensable roadmap to living a fulfilled and balanced life in a world that often does its best to prevent just that, The Holistic You: Integrating Your Family, Finances, Faith, Friendships, and Fitness is perfect for anyone hoping to improve their ability to maintain a connection with what really matters in life.
Praise for The HOLISTIC YOU:
“All the wealth data indicates that to create sustainable wealth and a great life, the Whole You must be involved. In this latest stroke of genius Rabbi Daniel and Susan Lapin have written a readable, wisdom- packed, and applicable book for everyone. The Holistic You is definitely Dave Ramsey recommended.”
―Dave Ramsey, Bestselling Author
“Our lost and lonely society needs more books like this one. The Lapins have that rare talent for bridging the old and the new and making multidirectional connections that bring both clarity and insight. They effortlessly glide from familiar modern references to time-tested religious and philosophical writings, from laying out commonsense truths to nuanced exegesis on the ‘permanent principles’ of the Bible. And they make all of it accessible, practical and personal. Most importantly, their premise here is exactly right: if we want to live a fulfilling life, we must take a holistic approach to our lives. All of us were designed to enjoy the full potential of the life God’s given us, and this book offers some important guidance on how to do just that.”

“The truths Rabbi and Susan Lapin present in The Holistic You have the power to change your life. If you will give equal attention to all of the five F’s they discuss―family, finance, friendship, faith and fitness―your life will be balanced. Earlier in my life, I was focused on ministry―to the detriment of some of those other critical components. With God’s help, I began to see the whole picture and, over the years, have counseled leaders not to make the same mistake. Through stories, statistics and ancient Jewish wisdom, The Holistic You drives home the message that ignoring any one of these components is like trying to play baseball without a bat. The Lapins’ approach to holistic living makes sense and will add ‘life’ to your years.”
