Sometimes, all we need is just a little boost to help along the way.
Personally, when I feel down, I recourse to self-help books.
Reading self-help books helps with self-improvement, charisma, and confidence.
However, with so many self-books out there, you might find it difficult to know which ones are the best right now.
Worry no more, I am here to help.
From my experience, these are 3 self-help books that will change your life.
3. Ask a manager
“How to navigate clueless colleagues, lunch-stealing bosses and the rest of your life at work.”
Social loneliness is growing each year.
In this digital age, people find it hard to switch off and be with themselves.
Whether you’re surrounded by people or live by yourself, but get a niggling feeling every so often, this book will make you feel less alone.
The book is invaluable as it helps you understand that:
- It’s okay to be alone.
- It’s okay to want better relationships.
- It’s okay to cut ties with people who are toxic.
- It’s okay not to be okay.
2. The Nature Fix
“Why nature makes us happier, healthier and more creative.”
Sometimes, we all need to step back and reconnect – not just with our loved ones but the world in its rawest form.
In this book, the journalist, Florence Williams, shares the science behind how nature affects our brains and bodies.
This book serves simple but effective steps, such as observing nature more on your daily commute, which can often make people feel much calmer and happier.
If you’re a bit down, physically or mentally, and need a little push to remind you of the magic and wonder in the world, this book is an excellent read.
1. How To Be Alone
“If you want to, and even if you don’t.”
On average, we spend around a third of our life at work.
It is a true statistic and unfortunately, many of us would rather not know about!
So, why would we not want to make that time as stress-free as possible?
This book will teach you how to get and keep a job, as well as how to be a good co-worker, boss, and a good human being, at work and in general.
The book boasts practical advice that stems from the author’s knowledge of how businesses and professional relationships work.
Plus, the book packs a lot of common sense, empathy and plenty of humour.
A must-read, no matter where you are in your career!
Whether it is career progression, relationships advice, lifestyle suggestions, or how to make sure your finances are in order, investing in self-help books is always worth it.
