As always, my goal is to inspire you to live a beautiful life, inside and out. These are my favorite books that have made a major impact on my self-love and wellness journey.
Yoga Girl by Rachel Brathen
I love Rachel’s outlook on health, wellness, and self-love. She talks SO much about feeling comfortable in your body and shares how she’s found peace with food and exercise.
The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle
If you struggle with anxiety this is a must-read! Reading this book helped shift my perspective and let go of a lot of anger and resentment. TYSM Eckhart for making my soul feel 10X lighter and brighter.
The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night at a Time by Arianna Huffington
This is a book that I’ve talked about in the past and will continue to talk about for the rest of my days because it literally changed my life. If you want to be healthier, happier and have skin that’s glowy AF, read this!
Favorite quote: “By helping us keep the world in perspective, sleep gives us a chance to refocus on the essence of who we are. And in that place of connection, it is easier for the fears and concerns of the world to drop away.”
12 Rules for Life: An Anditote to Chaos by Jordan B. Peterson
It’s all about taking responsibility and just owning your shit! Ya know? LOTS of good life advice in this one.
Favorite quote: “If you have a friend whose friendship you wouldn’t recommend to your sister, or your father, or your son, why would you have such a friend for yourself?”
UNTRUE: Why Nearly Everything We Believe About Women, Lust, and Infidelity Is Wrong and How the New Science Can Set Us Free by Wednesday Martin
The Skinny Confidential Him and Her podcast is to thank for this one! Wednesday, the author, was on the show and she is SUCH a boss bitch. It’s super informative, witty, and hella empowering.
Favorite quote: “It’s logical horizon that we start thinking about female-centered sex and sexuality, focusing on women’s desire, women’s pleasure and privilege.”
So Sad Today: Personal Essays by Melissa Broder
As someone who lives with depression and anxiety, I related to SO much of what Melissa had to say. She is brutally honest and this book had me laughing, crying and cringing. I loved the chapter where she talks about breakups and the steps it takes to REALLY move on.
Favorite quote: “Why can’t people just be kind to one another? But what I really meant was, why can’t I be kind to myself?”
