Self-love is a crucial aspect of our overall well-being, yet it’s a concept that many of us struggle with.

We often prioritize caring for others or external achievements over our self-care, leading to feelings of burnout, stress, and low self-esteem. Practicing self-love can help us lead a more fulfilling and peaceful life.

Fortunately, there are many practical books available that can guide us on this journey toward self-love.

These books offer practical tips, exercises, and advice to help us cultivate self-compassion, self-acceptance, and self-care. Here are books from some of the best PhDs with years of experience to teach you just that.

A Year of Self-Care

by Dr. Zoe Shaw

Daily Practices and Inspiration for Caring for Yourself

A Year of Self-Care encourages you to begin investing in yourself and incorporating self-love and care rituals into your everyday life.

A Year of Self-Care will guide you through 365 simple, thought-provoking exercises designed to help you maintain your commitment to self-care. You’ll devote a year to positive thinking and self-love.

My Favorite Quotes from the book —

“Self-care is never a selfish act — it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer others.

“Self-care is a daily exercise — one that is free, but priceless. It is a reckoning with your soul where you declare: I am worthy to be cared for.”
Dr. Zoe Shaw

“Productivity is not the same as progress. You can complete multiple tasks for others and yourself, but if the work is not progressing you forward toward your goals, then all the effort is a practice in futility.”
Dr. Zoe Shaw
