5 Great Self-Care Books That Help You Get Focused on Your Life

Let's face it life is full of distractions. As you walk down the malls of life there are countless people and things vying for your time, your attention, your money, and your mind. You find yourself thinking, well damn! Can a sister catch her breath? This rush of life and sometimes crush of circumstances can rob you of time you need to give to yourself to just focus on yourself. In these moments you have to push through the pressure and just say, excuse me, it's an emergency, I need to get to me. Thank you.

Here are 5 great books that can help you do just that.

In all your years of schooling, did you ever take a single class that explained how to navigate the hurt, drama, and fear that come with living? Tina Lifford sure didn’t. She learned the hard way―through experience as both a Hollywood actress and as the founder of the personal development network The Inner Fitness Project. Now, she brings together her own hard-won insights as well as those of her clients in this helpful and transformative guide. A blend of personal anecdotes and meaningful, practical―and most important, actionable―advice, The Little Book of Big Lies is the life skills class you need to nurture the inner you and move beyond the past.

In fourteen raw, personal stories, Tina teaches you how to change your self-perception―to see yourself in the best possible light, to love and honor what you see, and to forge a new sense of what’s possible in every aspect of your life. But make no mistake, The Little Book of Big Lies is not a “rah-rah” quick fix for fear and pain. Like physical fitness, building and maintaining emotional strength requires continued effort. This invaluable book is the foundation you need to start building inner health and well-being so you can thrive.

Tina guides you on a journey of self-discovery that will help you turn shame into self-acceptance, self-rejection into self-love, blame into freedom, and old hurt into power. Wise and powerful, The Little Book of Big Lies will completely change how you think and live.

When people are new to self-care, they tend to assume that it mostly means personal grooming, long hours in a bathroom, manicures and yoga sessions… And they’re not wrong! Self-care DOES include those things.

But when you think well, self-care runs much deeper than just a bubble bath – it includes emotional self-care as well. Since life has become increasingly harder for everyone these days, here, in this book, I’m going to talk exactly about it.

In this wonderful guide you’ll learn:

Too often we feel pulled down by circumstances or the negativity of others. We think we have no control over the things that are hurting us and holding us back from realizing our truest selves. But according to Lalah Delia, we have more power within us than we know: listen to your unique inner voice and trust your instincts. By doing so, you’re already experiencing the transformative power of vibrational-based living.

Vibrating higher daily is about making intentional day-to-day choices that lift us out of mindsets, habits, and lifestyles that don't serve us and into ones that do. This book is an invitation to engage with everything that feeds our soul and raises our vibration, and to simultaneously let go of the things bringing our energy down. Through poetry, mantras, and affirmations, Lalah Delia empowers us to live with higher potential and quality of being.

Vibrate Higher Daily is a manifesto unlike any other for stepping into our power.
