When I found out Lea Michele was releasing her second book this month, I knew I needed to feature it on this list. Part self-help, part writing experience, You First is designed to help readers harness the power of journaling to achieve their best selves. Filled with beautifully pink-lined pages, this book consists a series of guided writing exercises that tackle everything from from goals and ambitions to fitness and relationships. The poignant questions in each chapter are designed to get readers to tune out all the noise around them and really focus on what is important to them. Michele believes that, when you write down your goals on a piece of paper, you are taking the first step to going after what you want. After all, it’s harder to ignore something that’s physically in black and white. She encourages readers to think of these pages as their safe zone, a place where they can and should feel free to express themselves. Complete with Michele’s own journaling experiences, You First about opening yourself up to self-discovery and making time to put yourself first.
