Some self-help books are simply thought provoking, and these are.

When I was younger, I thought I’d reach a point as an adult where I had everything figured out.
These days I am constantly reminded that there is always room for us to learn, grow and improve.
Following are three actionable self-help books that you can read and use to better your life.

When something feels wrong, your routines are a mess, and nothing is working, you want to make a change.
The impulse is to go big: start a ten-day fast.
Work out five times a week.
Quit your job, end your marriage, and move to Dubai — raze it all to the ground.
But those drastic efforts tend to fizzle out before they’ve even begun.
The Habit Trip maps the topography of who you are and what you love, revealing a personalized infrastructure for well-being that is hiding in plain sight.
By the end of your rollicking journey, you’ll have charted an easier way to roll through the joyful chaos of life, one habit at a time.
Your challenges, your solutions, your way.

In The Sober Curious Reset, Ruby goes a step further by inviting you into a 100-day process of radically rethinking your drinking.
Each “day” features observations, exercises, and insights, offering a more profound process of self-discovery than common month-long programs like Dry January or Sober September.
Ruby’s friendly, honest, and totally non-judgmental tone helps you unmask the deeper “whys” behind your drinking.
You’ll understand why 100 days is so transformational, and how to create a truly sustainable shift in habits — and on to living a life with more presence, focus, and overall well-being.
It is not about preaching total abstinence — rather, it’s about empowering you to make the right drinking choices, whatever this may look like for you.
Ruby’s 100 days is all about changing your relationship to alcohol to lead a life with more clarity, confidence, and connection.

We make, and worry about, a thousand big and little decisions during our waking hours.
And for most of us, these decisions are made, based on concerns or beliefs about our world that . . . well . . . simply aren’t true.
These misperceptions impact day-to-day decisions and stress us out unnecessarily — and we all have enough stress as it is.
Tim Caulfield seeks to provide the antidote to this analysis paralysis.
He teaches readers — through sound science and silly stories — that reevaluating their decision-making processes can lead to lives that are both more fulfilling and more exciting.
