5 Best Self-Help Books For Your Mental Health


Normally, reading a book (any kind) helps your mental health. But do you know reading self-help books can help you reduce anxiety, battle depression, and even boost your low self-esteem?

Because of this, I have compiled these 5 best self-help books for you:


  1. A New Earth: Eckhart Tolle.

Oprah Winfrey called this book the most essential book of our generation.

This book will teach you the art of mindfulness and how to handle ego, pride, pain, and many life oppositions. It will teach you how to have a sense of inner peace.

If you have a troubled mind, you should get this book.

  1. The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle:

This book will teach you how to live and stay present. You’ll learn how to get rid of negative thoughts that can plant dangerous seeds in your heart.

And as you know, your thoughts become your feelings and your feelings translate into your actions.

This book is usually recommended for people struggling with anxiety.

If you are struggling with one, this self-help book is what you need.


  1. Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No to Take Control of Your Life, Dr. Henry Cloud, and Dr. John Townsend:

If you’re always guilty of saying “yes” to people and later regretting it, if you cannot say “no” to people, then you need to read this book.

Because if people see your “yes” as a weakness, they will keep taking advantage of you while you keep suffering, doing what you don’t want to do.

This book by the two authors will teach you how to set healthy boundaries. You’ll learn the importance, why, and how to set healthy boundaries.

In fact, I think everybody should read this book. You should learn how to say “no” without feeling bad about it.


  1. Struggle Well: Thriving in the aftermath of trauma, Ken Falke & Josh Goldberg:

I have seen many people suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

I have seen people get involved in accidents that almost claimed their lives. And then when they survive it, it becomes hard to live a normal life.

They still daydream about the accidents. For road accidents, it’s difficult to walk on the streets. When they hear the sounds of cars, it transports them back to the incident.

In fact, sometimes, it feels like it wants to happen again.

Ken and Josh, who are very experienced in PTSD, wrote this book specifically for you.

Get this book to thrive over trauma and challenges.


  1. Big Magic, Elizabeth Gilbert:

 A lot of creatives and artists struggle with the creative block. Because of this, Elizabeth Gilbert, an experienced writer (fiction and nonfiction), wrote this book to teach you how to release your creativity.

It’s a book that will teach you how to embrace and live beyond your fears. If you are a creative or an artist, this is the book for your mental health. You don’t have to struggle with creativity; you know?

These are the 5 best self-help books for your mental health. You should visit the nearest bookshop to get yours.
