With spring and summer right around the corner, something that is on most of our minds is looking good. What we often forget about is that feeling good on the inside is equally as important, if not more! The pandemic has thankfully brought many mental health activists to the forefront, many of whom promote self-love and self-care. One of our favorite ways to practice self-care is by unwinding (with a glass of wine) and reading a good book, namely, self-help books!
Self help books are great way to really get the juices flowing. Often, self-help books provide readers with new ways of thinking and pieces of advice we may not have otherwise gotten. They are chock full of uplifting and motivating content that is sure to boost your vibe, and can prompt you to pick up healthy habits!
