I know a lot of people think that self help books are pretty lame but I actually kind of love them. I am totally a believer in keeping your mind healthy and reinforcing positive thoughts so I love a good inspirational book. My friend Bree got this book a while ago written by our favorite super model, Miranda Kerr, called Treasure Yourself. It is a book about keeping your mind and body healthy and she basically just shares tips on how she keeps her skin healthy, body fit, and mind positive. And at the end she gives a whole list of affirmations that she lives by. In the book Miranda says she will pick out an affirmation before she goes to bed and say in her mind so when she wakes up that is the first thing she thinks about and she tries to live by that affirmation throughout the day. I absolutely loved the idea and so I made my own little jar with a lot of her affirmations as well as quotes from LDS conference talks and of course, my favorite pinterest quotes.
This is what the book looks like and you can buy it here
I also bought this book before I went to Fiji a couple summers ago. I was going to be gone for a couple months and knew I would get homesick and I actually really loved this book for my trip.
**The 5 love languages: I don’t know that this would be classified as self-help but it is really great because it explains how a person’s love language is how they show love to someone else and how for that individual to feel loved, they need to also be loved in their own love language. Mine is quality time and physical touch.. so basically for me to “feel loved” someone would have to, as the book says, show it by using those languages and if I were dating someone whose love language was words of affirmation, I would have to show my love that way.. etc.
**If You Have to Cry Go Outside: This book is by Kelly Cutrone (one of my most favorite public figures) and she tells about how she gained her success. Its kind of a girl power book haha and it makes you want to just go out and accomplish all your goals and dreams.
I have all of my favorite quotes and thoughts from millions of books, talks, articles, pinterest, etc. and so I basically typed them up and put them in this jar and I try to read one every night before bed. I still need to finish typing and cutting the rest.. I have so many. But, I love it because it keeps me healthy and motivated.
