Over 40 fashion blogger wearing brown everyday jacket with ivory booties and light wash jeans while sharing best self help books of 2022.

What a year 2022 was for me!  For those of you who don’t know, I filed for divorce, and this will be my 2nd divorce, so it’s been a hard year for me.  But, like I always say, 2 good things always come from failures and trials:  THE LESSON THAT GOD WANTS TO TEACH YOU and (this one goes without saying) ALL TRIALS ARE GIVEN TO US TO BRING US CLOSER TO GOD OR THE UNIVERSE OR YOUR HIGHER POWER (whatever you believe, for me it’s God).  For more helpful things I learned in 2022 that dramatically helped my mental health check out this post titled: 15 LIFE LESSONS I LEARNED IN 2022.

I’ve set a personal goal to share more wellness and mental health tips with all of you this year, along with fashion tips of course! I truly believe BOTH play a major role in how we feel about ourselves and mental health is SO important.  So, today along with my chic outfit details I’ll be sharing the TOP 5 SELF-HELP BOOKS that helped me become a better, more intentional version of myself.  I hope they help you as much as they have helped me!

MAKE SURE TO SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN TO SEE WHICH 5 BOOKS DRAMATICALLY CHANGED MY LIFE IN 2022.

MADEWELL JACKET:

This jacket is the PERFECT weekend jacket to throw on for whatever you’ve got planned. I love that it can be dressed up as I have with these ivory heeled booties, or it can be worn more casually with sneakers. I’m wearing an XS in this amazing jacket that also comes in a beautiful green olive shade.

WHITE BODYSUIT:

Every wardrobe needs a really good bodysuit and this one from Spanx is one of my all-time faves! The knit material makes it look far more expensive than it really is and I love the amount of coverage and support it provides. I’m wearing an xs in this ideal bodysuit with an under $70 price tag.

AGOLDE MERREL JEANS:

I’ve been doing a deep dive into my denim collection lately for my 30 days of denim series and these jeans are DEFINITELY making the list of favorites! The high-rise and slim straight leg are one of the most universally flattering styles on denim and this light wash is perfect for spring! I’m wearing a size 24 and I find they fit true to size.

IVORY BOOTIES SIMILAR:

Ivory booties are another essential wardrobe staple that can be worn across several seasons.  These ones are a fantastic option and I personally wear mine all the time. I particularly love the block heel because it makes them very comfortable to wear!

5 LIFE-CHANGING SELF HELP BOOKS:

 

YOU’RE A BADASS BY JEN SINSCERO:

Wow, this book is a good one!  It’s all about how having a positive mindset and setting goals really do make a difference.  It also focuses on how 99% of ALL decisions we make are based on our subconscious which explains why change is so hard.  If you want to see REAL change in your life you must learn how to tap into your subconscious mind and she teaches you how to do just that in this book. She talks about how we all have the capability to tap into our higher source energy to gain what we want from this life NOW and that there is no better time than the present to start acting like the BADASS you were put on this earth to be!

HOW TO DO THE WORK BY NICOLE LEPERA

This book has helped me work through my childhood trauma and we all have it by the way.  Trauma is defined as any deeply distressful experience as since none of us had perfect parents I’m sure we all have some sort of trauma to work through.  This book takes you through actual exercises that will help you reparent your inner child so you can begin to respond to things that trigger you versus overreacting.

OUTWITTING THE DEVIL BY NAPOLEON HILL

OK, OUT OF THIS ENTIRE LIST THIS ONE IS HANDS-DOWN THE MOST IMPACTFUL AND THE ONE THAT MADE THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE IN MY LIFE! It’s all about how a positive mindset is key to living a successful life but there has to be intention behind it.  The devil is all about putting negative thoughts and FEAR in our minds so blocking that is crucial for living our best lives!  I bought this book for both of my adult children and my niece who is about to graduate high school.  If you only read one book from this list let it be one!  Yes, it’s that good!

 

THE POWER OF VULNERABILITY BY BRENE BROWN

I love Brene Brown!  She is probably one of the best motivational speakers I’ve ever listened to!  This book is all about how getting in touch with our feelings and really feeling them is crucial to true joy and happiness.  You have to FEEL to HEAL!

THE BODY KEEPS THE SCORE BY BESSEL KOLK

I can’t even begin to explain how many things I learned in this book!  It was literally mindblowing how much are bodies and minds are in sync.  I guess I knew this but I didn’t realize to what extent it was actually true.  It explains why my body was telling me through panic attacks, headaches, and extreme anxiety that I was living in the wrong environment.  Even when my mind wanted to keep me there because it was familiar my body literally wouldn’t let me.  Remember this, even if your mind tries to lie to you, your body won’t let it!  This one is a definite must-read as well!
