Lately, we’ve been experiencing information overload and consistent bad news, so scrolling through social media isn’t the best way to relax and unwind after a stressful day. Reading can help you relieve stress and escape from the anxieties of the real world. Some self-help books feel hard to read, they’re either too practical or too spiritual, and forcing yourself to focus will be more exhausting than relaxing. 


We’ve found five entertaining books that you can add to your self-care ritual! They’re inspiring, fun to read, and will help you improve your life. These books are written as if the author is right next to you, guiding you and cheering you on. Remember to choose the right book for you, one that you can benefit from, and apply what you read to your life. Reading can make you happier and healthier!


The pandemic has reminded us of what is truly important in life, which is also the foundation of a minimalist lifestyle. This book shares how to find happiness in simplicity, and use minimalism to improve your health and relationships. If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed lately, this book can help you eliminate unnecessary commitments and stress from your life, as well as bring more joy by celebrating the small things.


Self-care books can be cheesy, but this relatable read offers a refreshing and engaging experience.

Written by a psychotherapist, who is also a New York Times best-selling author, this book is for those who are curious about giving therapy a go.

The book demystifies therapy, de-stigmatises mental health and humanises therapists in a witty and wonderful way.


Although this book is written for those who live in the US, the financial wellness advice from most chapters can be helpful for everyone and applied everywhere.
