Thursday 5 January 2023 By Soho House
While self-care should happen all year around, January is the ultimate time to set yourselves some new wellness goals that’ll improve your mind, body and soul over the next 12 months and beyond. And what better way to do so than indulging in some perspective-changing reads?
For this month’s Book Club, the first of 2023, we called on Soho House member, self-development coach and author Roxie Nafousi to list the five wellness books that changed her life for the better – including her own Sunday Times Bestseller, Manifest: 7 Steps To Living Your Best Life.
Nafousi, who is also an inspirational speaker and manifesting expert, knows a thing or two about shifting your mindset to improve your overall health, be it mentally, physically, financially or emotionally. In fact, Forbes described her as ‘the manifest queen’ – below are the books she credits for getting her to where she is today.
1. Manifest: Dive Deeper by Roxie Nafousi
‘This month, my second book was released. It’s one that’s designed to help you go deeper into the healing journey required to successfully manifest your best life and unlock the most empowered version of yourself that exists. It’s filled with new ideas, perspectives and real-life examples, and each chapter also has multiple exercises for you to work through.’
2. Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers
‘This book really changed my whole view on life. It taught me not just about the importance of taking risks and stepping outside your comfort zone, but also taking responsibility for your life. It got me out of the victim mentality and encouraged me to take charge of my life, and my happiness.’
3. The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma
‘A book that is filled with wisdom and perspectives that’ll shift the way you view the world, and the concept of happiness and success.’
4. The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
‘A short but transformative book that is timeless. The four agreements are four principles to live by. I have them printed out on my wall, I love them so much.’
5. The Examined Life: How We Lose And Find Ourselves by Stephen Grosz
‘Not a self-help book per se, but a book full of short, real-life encounters between a psychoanalyst and his patients. It’s one of my favourite books, because I think that sometimes the best way to find out more about ourselves is to listen to the experiences of others. We are reminded that we aren’t all that different from each other.’
