8 of the top self-help books every woman should read to empower herself

Male Escort Melbourne – 15 April 2022



Self-help books are no longer the dull, drab works that say the same thing in different ways over and over across the pages. In recent times, quite a few great ones have been published from which you can take away a thing or two of essence. 



That said, there are some amazing best-selling books in the self-help genre that are especially helpful to women and you should definitely take out some time to read them. Keep in mind, you can always do what I do, with no time to stop and read, I listen to audiobooks quite often while driving. Here are my top picks:



    1. Katie Sturino’s Body Talk

Kate Sturino has laid it all bare when it comes to toxic beauty standards for women. She’s an advocate of body positivity and tells ways in which you can unlearn everything wrong that women think or are made to believe that’s self-deprecating. If you’re someone that has always faced difficulty in accepting their body with its beauties as well as perceived ‘flaws’, then this book is for you.



    2. Tarana Burke’s and Brené Brown’s You Are Your Best Thing

Though this is not your typical self-help book, it definitely delivers substance beyond one. An anthology with contributions from a diverse group of black writers, in this book, activists, artists, professors, and cultural leaders discuss the ‘Black’ experience, including subjects of vulnerability and white supremacy.



    3. Glennon Doyle’s Untamed

In this book, Glennon takes the reader through a journey of discovery and triumph over obstacles to live a purposeful life. This is a part of the esteemed Reese’s book club and surely deserves to be one.



    4. Mari Andrew’s Am I There Yet?

Mari is a master of illustrating all the challenges, hopes and the nuances that adulthood brings in the most appealing and relatable way possible, and this book is an intelligent compilation of just that.



    5. Marina Khidekel and Thrive Global Editors’ Your Time to Thrive

This book written by Marina Khidekel is curated by the editors at Thrive Global, an initiative by Arianna Huffington. It is for you if you’ve been feeling overwhelmed with everything going on in the world, especially the pandemic woes.


Your Time to Thrive is all about leading life and taking care of your well-being without burning out, with the right mindset changes.



    6. Gary Chapman’s The 5 Love Languages

This bestseller book is for everyone who is either struggling with their relationships or anyone who wants to get more insight into a happy relationship or marriage in general. It basically talks about the 5 love languages that people speak when it comes to expressing and receiving love. 


Just how you wouldn’t understand a language you don’t know, the same goes with your love language. If your partner speaks a different love language than you do, then the chances are you might feel it difficult or even impossible to feel loved and make them feel loved as well. 


I’ve listened to the audio book and I highly recommend you go through it as well.



    7. Don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements

Another bestseller in the list, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel refers to ancient Toltec wisdom to teach us how to apply the four agreements to alter our lives for the better: Maintain the highest level of integrity when it comes to your words. Don’t take things too personally. Make no assumptions. Always give it your all.



    8. Shonda Rhimes’ Year of Yes

The New York Times bestseller, Year of Yes is where Rhimes has shared how her one-year journey of saying ‘yes’ to everything out of her comfort zone transformed her life.


Best known as the creator of the hit TV show Grey’s Anatomy, Rhimes talks about her struggles with panic attacks and her introvert nature. She also shares her pattern of saying ‘no’ to everything, which she resolved to break by ensuing the year of saying ‘yes’. 


This book focuses on the need of challenging yourself and constantly putting yourself in new environments to grow in life. 



Winding up

I hope this list could give you some ideas if you’re looking for the next book to add to your wishlist. Even if you’re not, I highly recommend going through at least one out of these gems. If you don’t have the time to sit down and read one, you can listen to the audio book on the go – while driving or working out, for example. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!
