Mastering Your Mean Girl by Melissa Ambrosini. This awesome book (I finished it in two days) teaches you to identify your “Mean Girl” – your ego, or the voice inside your head telling you that you’re not good enough, smart enough, skinny enough, whatever enough. It helps you realise the excuses you tell yourself are just self-limiting beliefs stopping you from achieving your dreams, and provides a practical plan for overcoming them to create a life you love.
Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin. This details the secret to meaningful change –identifying the strategies that work with our particular tendencies (unsurprisingly I’m an Obliger – you?) so we can cultivate good habits. Her previous book The Happiness Project is also great and I love her podcast with her sister, Happier with Gretchen Rubin.
