The Very Best Celebrity Self-Help Books On Self-Love, Anxiety and Mindfulness

You’re not that different from celebrities. In fact, they are often struggling with very similar issues that we all struggle with. Anxiousness, self-esteem, insecurity, you name it. We’ve all been there. These struggles are even more apparent in our modern digital society. Some celebrities took matters into their own hands and started thinking of a way to use their fame for good.

One way of doing so is to write self-help books that tackle these issues. We selected five self-help books we think everyone should read. They are not some meaningless pieces of content – they help you overcome actual problems you might be dealing with right now. Celebrities are opening up and offer a very vulnerable and sincere insight into their lives. It’s a small price to pay for a huge leap forward towards a happier and more meaningful life.

Russell Brand – Recovery: Freedom from Our Addictions

“This manual for self-realization comes not from a mountain but from the mud… My qualification is not that I am better than you but I am worse.” – Russell Brand

British comedian Russell Brand has made many mistakes in life and he is the first to admit it. He does so in his book Recovery: Freedom from Our Addictions in his usual honest, compassionate and funny way. He vows to help those who are trying to recover from any sort of addiction, as well as caffeine, stress, work, bad relationships and social media. The main takeaway, Russell argues, is to view staying clean as a daily activity. It’s not so much about the why of your addiction, but more about what pain or discomfort you are trying to mask. Overall the book deals with addiction and self-esteem issues in a great and positive way, and it teaches some valuable life lessons along the way. [Available as Audiobook, eBook or Paperback on Amazon]

Lily Collins – Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me

Lily Collins knows a thing or two about relationships, dating and body issues. No wonder she felt the need to help out her fellow young women. Her self-help book, Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me, covers practically anything female teenagers struggle with: self-esteem, family issues, body image and so much more. Lily argues the best thing you can do for yourself is to love yourself and to take care of yourself. The goal here is to look in the mirror and like what you see. Isn’t that something we all long for? She tells her story in a warm and hilarious manner, and it’s a story every young girl can benefit from. [Available as Audiobook, eBook or Paperback on Amazon]

Lauren Graham – In Conclusion, Don’t Worry About It

“I’ve had ups and downs. I’ve had successes and senior slumps. I’ve been the girl who has the lead, and the one who wished she had the bigger part. The truth? They don’t feel that different from each other.” – Lauren Graham

Lauren Graham is a role model to many, and even more so now that she took pen to paper and wrote about her experience in life to help others. In her book In Conclusion, Don’t Worry About It she urges us to stay curious, to stay compassionate, no matter where life takes you. The most important thing in life is to keep finding joy in everything you do. Especially when the joy isn’t finding you! It’s a groundbreaking book about self-esteem and an essential roadmap to a happier life. Oh, did we mention this was a NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER in 2018? Enough said. [Available as Audiobook, eBook or Paperback on Amazon]

Gisele Bündchen – Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life

“In this book I’ve laid out the lessons that have helped me live a more conscious and joyful life, inspired me to overcome challenges I’ve faced over the years, and given me a deeper understanding of myself and the world. I hope they will help you, too.” – Gisele Bündchen

Gisele is usually very careful with her public image. Until she opened up in her book Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life that is. What a contrast her private life is to her glorious public image. When she was young she was severely bullied, which had devastating effects on her health and her self-esteem for many years to come. On top of that she didn’t know how to slow down her hectic life, balancing a busy work-schedule, an unhealthy lifestyle and the need to say yes to everyone that asked her anything. The fact that she was extremely anxious and suffered from panic attacks seems only a logical result. She takes us to the ups and downs of her life, teaching us many lessons along the way. It’s all about loving yourself! [This NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER is available as Audiobook, eBook or Paperback on Amazon]

Jennifer Lopez – True Love

Jennifer made it explicitly clear that this book isn’t some quick money grab. She really wants to show where she came from and how she got this far. It’s meant to be an inspiration to those who didn’t start in a privileged position, to those who need to work twice as hard to accomplish anything, to those who got let down over and over again but want to keep rising up. In True Love Jennifer reveals her greatest fears and challenges in life and how they made her a stronger woman. The best lesson she learned is that pleasing others to be happier is not the way to go. It might sound selfish at first, but the key is to make yourself priority number one. Always. This book is going to make you feel empowered and confident, with actionable steps you can apply to your own life. [Available as Audiobook, eBook or Paperback on Amazon]
