There's a stigma which surrounds self-help books, which makes people think they're only for those who are at an all time low and are desperate to improve their lives. However, these books are there for anyone who fancies picking them up, and I don't know of a single person who does not want to improve who they are. Today I wanted to share 3 self-help books which have stuck with me - that's right, that can actually help (and it also does not mean I'm pathetic for looking to printed words for help, it means I wanted something useful to read). 

  1. Don't Sweat the Small Stuff by Richard Carlson - This book helps to put things into perspective. One thing which has stuck with me  since reading this is if something is not going matter in a years time, it probably doesn't matter all that much now. When something trivial play on my mind, I now try to consider whether it will bother me in a year, usually that answer is no, and I begin to feel at ease once more. Another thing this book speaks about is that you will never complete your to-do list and in some way that's comforting. This book is full of other little gems which remind you some things just aren't worth the worry.
  2. He's Just Not That Into You by Greg Behrendt & Liz Tuccillo - There have been far too many times I have found myself investing in a guy who is blatantly not interested or worth my time and energy. This book simply helps to figure out these harsh realities that your friends might not tell you, which allows you to move on, and find people who are worth your time. It's to the point, and both harsh and empowering to read.
  3. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo - If you want a big clear out, this is the book to read. This will make you want to get rid of most of your stuff, and make you realise how much of your stuff is just collecting dust, alongside this, you will begin to appreciate the things which bring you joy. This book also talks about how to store things, and how to create a space which you love. I got rid of so much stuff which just cluttered my room after reading this, and I'm so much happier with my space now.
