Just let me say it once, and then I promise I’ll try not to again – I can’t believe 2018 is almost over!
Honestly, as I get older the years just seem to be going quicker and quicker. It’s a bit scary to be honest, but it can also be a positive thing.
The start of a new year is the ultimate fresh start! I am one of those people who get so excited about starting over and I vow every year that this one will be better.
One of my favourite ways to get inspired, motivated and generally excited about a new year is by seeing how other people do it. I’m a nosy person anyway, but looking at how other people do things or listening to their advice is a great way to get inspired.
Today I’ve got three amazing books (all by amazing women!) to help inspire, motivate and uplift you as we enter the new year.
1. The Life-Changing Magic Of Not Giving A Fuck : Sarah Knight*
This was one of the first books I read in 2018 and it certainly gave me a lot to think about!
If you’ve been here before then you will know that I am a terrible over-thinker. I spend far too much time worrying about what other people think and how to best please them. Safe to say, Knight wasn’t having any of that.
This book is a hilarious and refreshing take on self-help. There’s so much advice and lessons involved, but there’s also activities and actionable steps to help change your mindset.
2. Witch : Lisa Lister
This actually was my very first read of 2018 and it was such a fun way to start off the new year.
I’ve spent some time exploring spirituality through 2018 as I am so fascinated by it, and it was this book that inspired the whole thing. I have to admit that I did prefer the first half of the book more as this is where I feel as though the real advice and information is, but I still enjoyed it nonetheless.
It’s certainly a good read if you’re looking to change your mindset in 2019 and will give you a lot to think about. Lisa has such an easy-to-read writing style so this book will be suitable for a lot of different people.
3. Body Positive Power : Megan Jayne Crabbe*
I’ve already talked about this book before (see here) but I couldn’t resist bringing it up again. I’d say if you’re going to read any one of these books on this list, then you must pick this one.
Megan is an absolutely wonderful person who you may have seen on Instagram. She is basically the Queen of body positivity and her words will help each and every one of you out there.
If you want to improve your relationship with yourself, food, excerise and others in 2019 then please read this book. You deserve a little more loving and Megan will help you get there.
What goals are you setting for 2019?
All the best for the new year, friends! I hope you stay safe, happy and healthy.

Some great book recommendations, I recently read Body Positive Power and loved it I agree that its a must read it was very eye opening and thought provoking and has helped me change my views on how I see my own body. I gave it to my mum after reading it because I know she also has body image issues and I thought it might help ease her mind a bit.
I’m definitely an overthinker it causes me a lot of anxiety, I also never realized how much of a people pleaser I was until recently and how much of an impact it has on me especially in the last couple of years. I might have to check out your first book recommendation it sounds like something that I should read.
