Feel Good Friday: Books for Positivity

I'm so happy it's the weekend! My week hasn't actually been too bad but some of my days were a battle of nerves and anxiety. I'm just happy that we've had some great weather. What a great way to end the week! 

A new installment to JennieWren3 is Feel Good Friday. I love to be happy (Who doesn't?) and with my Feel Good Friday I aim to show my readers a way to ensure they leave all their stress and sadness behind them and enter the weekend on a fresh note. 

I'm no expert on feeling fantastic but in the past few years I've found myself having to search for happiness on my own. I'm normal and I have my down days but knowing ways to perk myself up after being low for a while is very useful. 

Today I shall be discussing three books that have helped me with becoming a happier person. Reading alone brings prosperity anyway but these three books in particular were written to bring happiness to somebody and I think they all do that well. 

May The Thoughts Be With You by Charlotte Reed 

When I show people this book they question if it is mine or if I bought it for my four-year-old nephew. I can understand because of the images that this could look like a child's book but I can assure you it's actually really useful. Each page has a quote and illustration that will either perk you up or give you some wisdom. I usually randomly select a page and really take in the message. Sometimes I select a page that really reflects on the mood I'm in and I find myself feeling a lot better and more focused to get over whatever obstacle that is blocking any happiness. 

The Mindfulness Journal by Corinne Sweet

This, like the book above, was a gift last Christmas. I had asked for a select amount of books that would make me a happier person and this one really does help. For anybody with anxiety or somebody that gets nervous quite often this is the book for you. It offers exercises for many situations such as before an interview, on your commute and even for whilst waiting for the bus. When I looked through this book it firstly made me understand that I'm not the only person that gets nervous before phoning somebody important, I am not the only person that gets worried that when I walk past somebody they will be judging me. It really does show how Mindfulness can affect your daily life and how such a simple lifestyle choice can make such a huge difference. If you want to find out more about how I have started to become mindful, read next weeks Feel Good Friday! 

Love, Tanya by Tanya Burr

If you don't happen to be an avid follower of Tanya Burr you may not even know who she is. She's a Youtuber and blogger that has made a career out of it all and I absolutely love the woman. Before I bought her book, however, I did not expect it to be so informative! Her book contains segments about her life, her love for fashion and beauty, baking, love but the chapter I was most interested in was "Confidence and Happiness". Confidence is something I have struggled with since my early teens so this segment really helped. She is such a bubbly person that her suggestions and tips really have helped me try to conquer confidence and happiness and that's why I think you should read this book! 

I hope you find my suggestions useful and enjoy your weekend being a happier you! What books would you recommend to be more positive?
