5 Self-Help Books I Want To Read | Blogmas Day 22

5 Self-Help Books I Want To Read | Blogmas Day 22

Just 3 more days until Christmas! I’m so excited to just spend it relaxing, eating yummy food. And seeing the faces of my loved ones when I give them their presents. As I said a couple blog posts ago, I will no longer be focusing on beauty, you can check that out my reasonings why: I Don’t Longer Want To Be A Beauty Blogger Anymore. And today is the start of that shift into something that I’m more into. I’ve been watching and reading a lot of book recommendations and I really enjoy self-help videos. So I thought I would give books ago. There are thousands, probably millions of self-help books on the market. Some which are rated amazing, some which are probably a load of rubbish.

I have only read/listened to a couple books so far, Girl Boss and The Secret. Both very eye-opening and inspiring books. Girl Boss if you haven’t heard of it looks at the creator of Nasty Girl’s journey into creating and bossing an amazing clothing brand. The Secret focuses on the law of attraction, which is something I’ve been slightly practising but want to delve into more deeper in the coming months.

Reading is an amazing thing to grow as a person. There is so much information out there in books. It is so different than gathering bits of information from the internet. The author has poured their heart and knowledge into the books and is basically a mentor. So many successful people dedicate time to reading each day, each week. So this is something I really want to do in the new year.

You Are A Badass | Jen Sincero 

This book is about loving who you are, loving what you can’t change and how to be a general badass all the time. It’s apparently really inspirational but also straight to the point.

How to Win Friends and Influence People | Dale Carnegie

It probably sounds worse then what it seems. It’s about people. Understanding how they think, and how you can relate to them to get something from them. He talks about how to approach relationships and how to get the most of out them so you can progress.

The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k | Sarah Knight 

This book is about giving fewer fucks and redefining what really matters to you. Sarah talks about living your best life, putting your effort into things that really matter. And tbh, it’s a pretty looking book haha.

The Little Book of Mindfulness | Dr. Patrizia Collard

I really like the idea of spending time being mindful and this book does exactly that. It shows you simple ways to practice mindfulness, allowing you to be more peaceful. And with this being my last term of university I think a bit of mindfulness will be needed.

The Miracle Morning: The 6 Habits That Will Transform Your Life Before 8AM | Hal Elrod 

Sometimes I’m a morning person, sometimes I’m not. This book intends to teach you ‘life s.a.v.e.r.s’ which help you get more done and live a fab life. ‘If you dedicate one minute to each step in the morning you’ll start achieving your goals’. Reviews actually say people are happy to wake up in the morning, so I’m definitely wanting to give this a read.

So there we have it. The 5 self-help books (there are many more) that I want to read in the upcoming year. If you have read any books like the ones above please let me know your opinion in the comments below. Also, don’t forget to check out some of my previous blogmas posts >>Winter Skincare Routine<< and >>50 Things To Do At Christmas Time<<.

    I’ve asked for Girlboss for Christmas and I’m really hoping I get it, so many people rave about that one! I haven’t actually heard of any of these other than how to win friends and influence people, my mum has read that and she said it was really helpful for her!

    I have every single book written by Sarah Knight and she is literally my life guru at the moment haha Aparft from The Life-Changing Magic… I also have ‘Get Your Sh*t Together’ and ‘You Do You’ and I swaer by them. They’re not just self-help books, as these normally bore me after a while, they’re written in such a funny and engaging way, I love every page of it!

    I live for self help books! There are a few here that I haven’t heard of that you can bet I will be picking up soon

    I’ve seen so many of these books absolutely everywhere, and while I don’t normally read this type of book, I’ve heard such good things about them and I am so tempted to pick a couple of them up this year! 🙊 The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving A F*ck is definitely at the top of my list, and I’m still yet to read #GirlBoss, and I feel like the only girl in the world that hasn’t read it.. 😂🤷🏼‍♀️
