Why I Start My Day With A Self-Help Book?4 min read

Recently, I have made it a habit to read a book daily. In my childhood, I was an avid reader of fiction books. But now I have shifted to non-fiction books, and I have primarily focused myself on reading a few pages of self-help book daily. When I started this habit, I used to read for 30 minutes before I hit the bed, but around a month ago, I have started reading these books an hour after I woke up. And trust me, this has made a massive difference in my life, and I am here to share my lessons with you.

1. It Gets Easier To Stick With A Positive Affirmation

When you read a self-help book, you are flooded with many positive thoughts. And it gets so much easier to stick with a positive affirmation throughout your day firmly. You will notice an improvement in your vibe, and eventually, you will end up carving paths to stay happy and brimming with positive energy, and you will have a very productive day.

2. You Make Better Choices

The lessons that you have learned in the morning forces you to reflect on your actions. You engage yourself in positive actions and make better choices. Also, if you want to introspect your actions in a better manner, I would recommend you to keep a journal. It works!

3. You Enhance Your Life With Self-Help Books

When you read good books, you discover hidden gems. We all know what is right and what is not, but still, we end up doing the wrong things. When you start your day with a good book, you enhance your life bit by bit, and soon, in no time, you will grow as a person.

4. You Complete Your Daily Goals 

I believe that someone who picks a self-help book, have a desire to improve their life. And reading a book early in the morning makes it so much easier to get the job done. I would suggest you plan out your day after you have read a few pages of a book and then crush the goal that you have created for the day. It is crucial to ensure that the fire inside you fuels you in taking action, and reading a book will definitely fuel you and give you a tremendous amount of positive energy. 


5. You Get Many Opportunities To Apply The Lessons Of The Self-Help Book

It is rightly said that reading is not enough; you need to apply the lessons that you have learned. When you read a book as soon as you wake up, you get an ample number of opportunities to apply the lessons that you have gained from that particular book. 


I am not asking you to read an entire book; even twenty pages of a book daily will suffice. Like any other habit, even this one is easy to start but hard to stick. If you really want to improve your life by taking one step daily, then you should stick to it. The habit of reading a self-help book daily in the early morning has tremendously improved my life, and it might work for you too! I forgot to tell you that you need to have a solid morning ritual to cultivate this habit. [Read: Kickass You Day With A Morning Routine]

  4. Self-help books are amazing and mindset really is everything. I find if I’m feeling overwhelmed or stressed out I simply need to take five to ten minutes away from my kids and life to just breathe and think positive thoughts. I also try to start out my day by going through things I’m looking forward to doing or seeing so I get out of bed in good spirits. Self-help books and positive affirmations are great ways to manage and reduce stress.
