Audiobooks are a God-send if you’re limited on time or just not in the mood to read a book. Whether you’re commuting to work, running errands, or even traveling, audiobooks are convenient tools that help you learn, grow, and transform your life. Not only can you easily squeeze in a few chapters each day, hearing the author or reader’s voice lends a personal touch to listening to audiobooks, which heightens its impact on your mind.
To inspire you to tune into a few great books this season that will truly change your life (for the better), here are a few of my favorite audiobooks that have had a powerful impact on the way I think, feel, and act.
One of my oldest friends (who I think of as a soul sister as we’ve been friends since kindergarten), turned me onto this book. She said it helped her get through her divorce, empowered and uplifted her, and helped her get back on her feet. Once I downloaded and started listening to self-help guru Gabrielle Bernstein’s audiobook, I felt like I could relate to everything she was talking about. She shares inspiring messages filled with powerful faith-based statements, that are both non-religious and yet spiritually-based in their belief system. She also provides helpful advice about listening to your intuition, being hopeful and positive-minded, and tapping into your inner strength. She’s a self-proclaimed “spirit junkie” who personifies the “your vibe attracts your tribe” mentality.
If you often feel pulled in different directions, drained and exhausted by your never-ending to-do list or work, and lacking any sense of personal boundaries in your life, then this is a must-download audiobook that will change your life. The book touches upon author Greg McKeown’s personal experiences about getting centered and truthful within oneself about what is “essential”. He also references examples of notable figures (like Jeff Bezos of Amazon) who mindfully create time each day to focus on mental clarity without distractions of the outside world. Whether you’re a full-time career gal or a stay-at-home mom, this audiobook will help you make yourself a priority, and enable you to become comfortable saying “no” whenever you need to.
With her bold, brazen personality and say anything attitude, author Jen Sincero captures your attention with her assertive audiobook that speaks volumes about being true to yourself. This straight-forward, candid advice combined with humorous anecdotes makes for a fun and empowering audiobook to help you become your best self. Whether you just went through a break-up, are wondering which career path to choose, or are still trying to “figure out life”, this audiobook will help you get on track to living a fulfilling, awesome life now.
