I spend a lot of time reading books to learn how to build a powerful mindset and become a better version of myself. As a book addict, I always look for new inspiring books to read. As the world gets more complicated by the day, we want to feel a sense of harmony within ourselves. As humans, we are all striving for inner peace instead we are anxious and stressed.
I have summarised 5 self-help books which will offer you solace and a way to finally find the inner peace you’ve been looking for.
The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck
By Mark Manson
Mark Manson believes the traditional concept of positivity will never lead to happiness or success and instead suggests that we need to accept our flaws and limitations to improve our lives. We need to choose the parameters by which we judge ourselves carefully as, if the parameters themselves are flawed, finding inner peace will not be possible. With real-life examples, personal anecdotes and his trademark humour, Manson will give you a completely fresh take on how to achieve inner peace.

The Wisdom Of Insecurity
By Alan Watts
Alan Watts believes that we live in a near-constant state of dissatisfaction and anxiety, and crave security which is both impossible and undesirable. He says that our insecurity is a result of us striving to be secure and that we should live fully in the present moment and recognise that we have no way of saving ourselves. According to Watts, the road to inner peace lies in embracing the present instead of anticipating the future or lamenting the past.
