The Willpower Instinct, Kelly McGonigal

Ah, willpower. Having strong self-control can be the difference between reaching our goals and feeling as though we’ve let ourselves down. Learning how to improve your willpower could have incredible results for the rest of your life.

The Story of the Human Body, Daniel Lieberman

While it might not be something that we think about every day, learning all about the human body and how it has evolved to be the humans we are today can help to change the way you look at the world. We have come a long way over the years. At the very least, you might find yourself learning plenty of new things along the way.

Quiet, Susan Cain

Introverts often prefer to keep themselves to themselves and their thoughts in their heads. Did you know that most introverts wouldn’t even describe themselves in that way? Whether you’re a fully-fledged introvert or want to get more in touch with yourself, a read of Quiet can help get to the bottom of who you really are – not who you might pretend to be.

Paradox of Choice, Barry Schwartz

Have you ever thought about how mentally draining it can be to make a decision? That’s why it’s often so tough to think clearly and decide when you’re tired. Paradox of Choice can help expand your mind to new ways that you can make decisions without burning yourself out.

Daily Rituals, Mason Currey

We often do the same things at the same time on the same day. Before we know it, these daily habits take over our lives, making it tough to ever break them. If you wonder why you do the same things every day or want to learn how to create new daily rituals, then you may benefit from this book.

Getting To Yes, Roger Fisher

It can be easy to shy away from negotiation – even if we know what we want. It doesn’t mean that we have to be forceful or refuse to budge, but learning how to negotiate with other people could help to save you money and stress in the long run. It’s all about understanding how to embrace your confidence.

Many of us love to expand our minds. Others prefer to lose ourselves to books. Do either of those sound familiar? Whatever the case, it could be time to combine your two passions and read some books that might just expand your thoughts and change the way that you live your life. Who knows, you might even learn some impressive things about yourself and the world along the way, too.
