5 Self-Help Books to Change Your Life

5 Self-Help Books to Change Your Life

Try online therapy here: – – – – If you’re an avid viewer of my channel, I do apologize- many of these books have been already talked about throughout my channel. However, over the years, one of the most commonly asked questions from family, friends, and new viewers- is, “What are some self-help books I can start off with?”

While I think there are so many MORE amazing self-help books to add to this list, I recommend these five first, as these books are easy, digestible, and not overly advanced in concept or theories. 🙂

I would ultimately use them as a jumping board into the self-help realm.

Should I do a “5 Self-Help Podcasts to Change Your Life” next? Let me know!

    There is a Youtuber here known as Jonna Jinton, who lives in the northern part of Sweden and posts amazing vlogs of her life out in the wilderness. However recently terrible news has come upon them that a large company is planning to destroy it to build wind turbines for Germany. Please please take the time out of your day to head over to her channel and contribute to the petition to stop this from happening! If you have the chance, watch her videos and you will see why this is so important. Thank you. (The link is in the description of her last video titled Vlog 14)

  11. SingTalkLaughLi -Lize Futcher- on February 7, 2019 at 5:47 pm

    I wish I could do online therapy but I’m broke af and my parents would never pay for that

  12. Bryanna Radovan on February 7, 2019 at 5:47 pm

    Amy please share your podcast recommendations! it’d totally help for some people who can’t get themselves to sit and read a book to themselves! thank you so much for this. I’ve been trying to become so much more aware of my well being and having self care.

  13. m Daly on February 7, 2019 at 5:49 pm

    Love The Book of Awakening!!!!

  14. Trulys Wish on February 7, 2019 at 5:49 pm

    I always put a time for something that’s why I can’t change

  15. Trisha Meloling on February 7, 2019 at 5:51 pm

    What’s the name of the 4 book?

  21. Maja Marinic on February 7, 2019 at 5:55 pm

    I am doing that website about self-help book reviews here Books can really change your life. It"s amazing how one book can change your life. It changed mine!

  22. Patricia Roca on February 7, 2019 at 5:56 pm


  23. Nikita Jain on February 7, 2019 at 5:58 pm

    What is the 4th and 5th book name?

  24. SkylarCollins on February 7, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    DO NOT SIGN UP FOR BETTERHELP. It’s a scam. They’re therapists aren’t licensed, and they don’t offer confidentiality. That means you’re not getting the help you need or want, and anything you tell these “therapists” can legally be shared with anyone.
    Youtubers only promote this site because they get 200$ when someone signs up on their link.
    I love Amy Lee, but I am very disappointed that she would sell out to a company that uses mental health to gain profit (and not even help anyone).

  25. Lucille Babel on February 7, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    just in time! <3

  26. A B on February 7, 2019 at 6:01 pm

    I’m sorry this is my opinion, but doing distance therapy is just the complete opposite of what it should be like. Therapy is MADE for being face to face, this how the therapist can work the best with its patient… it’s just breaking my heart to see how modernity is destroying everything..

  27. Bella Mercado on February 7, 2019 at 6:01 pm

    Rewatching this video because it’s been one of those days and for some reason having a “stranger” motivate me is more motivating than my close friends these days… I love the AM with Amy series and all your self-help videos. I’d love for you to do a series on what books you read like monthly for example

  28. emoshmeer on February 7, 2019 at 6:04 pm

    Did you ever state the name of the fourth book?…….

  29. sophie p on February 7, 2019 at 6:06 pm

    Amy!! You should read "The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck" by Mark Manson i highlighted so much

  30. Alexander Wells on February 7, 2019 at 6:09 pm

    AMY LEE I’m looking for Oxfords lookbook

  31. Unknow Prs on February 7, 2019 at 6:10 pm

    thaaaaaaaaanks ♥ i am a big fan of u

  32. emma rose on February 7, 2019 at 6:13 pm

    I started online therapy a couple months ago (not through betterhelp but it’s basically the same thing) and I’ve found that it’s really not working for me and idk why 🙁 I’ve tried but it’s like I can’t find anything to message my therapist about (even though there are definitely things I could talk about because I’m a depressed mess) and it makes me anxious thinking about like "oh she messaged me, I have to reply, I don’t want to think about that right now though…" as well as "oh I haven’t said anything in awhile I should be TALKING more because I’m paying money for this" but I end up not using it and it’s eating me up thinking about how I’m paying monthly for something I barely use. It’s super anxiety inducing and I have no idea why. I just want something to work for once.

  33. Mariah K. on February 7, 2019 at 6:13 pm

    Thank you so much ♥️

    Honestly you are such a beautiful woman inside and out. I’ve been subscribed to your channel for a week and watch your videos that come up on my feed. I just love what you stand for and how raw you are with your content. I can relate to you in so many way I just want to say thank you ♥️

  36. Caroline S on February 7, 2019 at 6:17 pm

    What is your job? Is it being a full time YouTuber? I would love to hear about it if you do something outside of this!!

    btw I loved this video

  37. heythisistiana on February 7, 2019 at 6:20 pm

    idk about online therapy because like I think the face to face interaction and having dedicated time really helped me but I guess for those where money is a concern/ they can’t get free counselling from their uni (like I do), online counselling might be better than nothing (but I definitely recommend it as a last resort)

  38. Mandisa Kuzwayo on February 7, 2019 at 6:21 pm

    I’m South African and I’m so proud you love Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s book, WOW

  39. Gabrielle Calara on February 7, 2019 at 6:22 pm

    love this! also, yes you should do a self help podcast recommendation vid, it would be nice to get some input as to what was helpful for them since there’s so many podcasts to choose from 🙂

  43. Eloisa Mae Masangkay on February 7, 2019 at 6:30 pm

  44. thisblondefromla on February 7, 2019 at 6:31 pm
