Three Books That Changed My Life

When I was younger, I was a huge fan of reading.  Then, growing up happened and soon enough I couldn’t remember the last time I’d read a book for leisure.  These days, reading is a part of my self-care routine, and it’s my favourite way to wind down before I go to sleep at night.  I wanted to share with you my top three favourite books that have changed the way I think and feel about myself and my body – I hope that you choose one of these books to read yourself, so that you can start seeing the changes too.

#1 – You Are Enough

Cassie Mendoza-Jones writes in a way that is easy to follow, and totally relateable.  Her first book, You Are Enough, helped me to learn self-acceptance, and to stop comparing myself to others.  It’s also a great book for overcoming perfectionism, something the author herself understands.

it's-all-good

#2 – It’s All Good

Filled with practical tips, affirmations, meditations, energetic tools and more, It’s All Good guides us to surrender, tune into trust, and ultimately achieve the peace of mind that comes from knowing we are always supported.

I highly recommend purchasing both of Cassie’s books, It’s All Good & You Are Enough, because they complement each other so well.

#3 – Daring Greatly

If you haven’t heard of Brene Brown’s work, you’re in for a treat.  Her uncanny ability to make anyone feel understood combined with her blunt sense of humour makes for a winning book.  In Daring Greatly, Brene talks about the importance of vulnerability, and how shame impacts us on a personal and societal level.  Brene gives you permission to be fully, unapologetically, vulnerable you.

I would love to know your thoughts once you’ve read these books! They have absolutely changed the way I view myself, and the way I live my life.

Enjoy!
