You guys, reading has always been something I’ve enjoyed but readers high always gets the best of me. Do you know what a reader’s high is or do you call it something else? It’s where you read a book and then you get so hung up on the ending that you can’t immediately jump into another book.
It wasn’t until I went soul searching though that I got into self-care books. For the past year, I’ve really been working on creating a routine for myself and building something more for myself and my family.
With all of the creative outlets that I do, I think it’s important to read books that make you feel normal and help you push through the hard times.
I’m going to share with you the TOP 5 books that I have read in the last year that have really helped me in some way.
- Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollins – I think there are a lot of girls out there that will say that Rachel Hollis is their spirit animal. Seriously, she is so inspiring with her realism. I also recommend Girl, Stop Apologizing.
- The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins – This rule is life-changing. That’s right, I said it. It truly has helped me do some pretty big things that I haven’t wanted to do. It calms my nerves and allows me to go in clear-minded and level headed.
- It’s Your Ship by D. Michael Abrashoff – OK, I didn’t want to read this book, I was forced to read it at work as a part of a New Leader Onboarding but I will say I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would.
It really teaches you how to lead and team and build a relationship with your team and how to get them to trust you and support you.
- UnTamed by Glennon Doyle – This book will help you quit your excuses and live life the way that YOU want to live it rather than how you think others want you to live it.
- Atomic Habits by James Clear – This book talks about the tangible tips and habits that you can learn to pick up to help you go after the things that you really want in life.
Now that I’ve shared mine, I want to hear yours? What are your top self-improvement or leadership books? How have they helped shape who you are or helped you choose your path?
