One of my biggest essentials in building my dream life is to keep learning every single day! Staying on a path of learning new things, perspectives and ways of viewing the world and myself. Every day I try to prioritize reading at least 10 pages in a book of interest to improve myself in different ways.
Here you will find the books I would recommend the most when it comes to growing as a person, getting to know yourself better, expanding your horizon and getting aligned with yourself.
This is one of the best books I have ever read! And one I would wish for everybody to read! Honestly, this was the last one left in my collection before getting new books because the front page didn’t really speak to me. It fooled me for sure!
After reading it, I was amazed! A must-read for anyone, but especially those who deal with depression and anxiety or know someone who is! So needed to read in our society today! I would love it if this book were a free prescription for everyone going through dark times!
'How To Do The Work'
Using the latest scientific research and healing modalities, Dr LePera shares her manifesto for self-healing as well as a the guide to re-inventing yourself for a better life.
The first step is in recognising how childhood experiences and trauma can keep us stuck in self-sabotaging behaviours (codependency, emotional immaturity, and trauma bonds) which can lead to an unfulfilling life if left unchecked. Next, Dr LePera equips us with the support and tools to break free and reclaim and recreate our lives.
This book may just give you a new outlook on how to approach mental wellness and self-care — highly recommended!
As the name suggests, the book is all about small changes in your daily activities or the little things that are part of your habit. However, it’s also atomic in the way that it can have a huge impact on your life.
You may uncover simple life hacks and find out exactly why they matter so much by learning about the psychology and neuroscience behind these tricks. Afterwards, you’ll find that it becomes easier to stay productive and motivated — without even making drastic changes to your life!
I cannot recommend this enough because not only these little habits can help you with your career or professional life, it can also revolutionize your relationships and overall outlook on life!

'The Happiness Trap'
Have you heard of the term “psychological trap”? According to research, happiness can be one such trap, where we are stuck inside a vicious cycle of endlessly pursuing happiness — the more we pursue it, the more happiness is out of our reach.

And even if you do not experience any of the symptoms mentioned above, this book is still a must-read, so that you can avoid this trap altogether!
