Eat Your Peas by Cheryl Karpen
The beginning of the book is set up as if it has been gifted to you. However, the messages within the book are important. Only a few sentences a page, the small book has little encouraging messages that can go a long way when needed. Just reading a page a day can put a new perspective on your day. Its central theme is encouraging the little, positive things in life as small as eating your peas.

Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
A very popular book and movie that narrates the author’s journey across the world in self-healing. The book tells about some upsetting events that happened in Gilbert’s life that led her to a great state of depression, but after she decided to go on the trip by herself, her life was turned around. Although not all of us are going to be able to go across the world for a year, the book is inspiring to find things to help you move forward and release the things not letting you move forward. Gilbert writes in a charming manner that makes the book easier to read, and the chapters are usually on the shorter side. Hopefully, the book is inspiring to say it is okay to step back and take care of yourself no matter where it leads you.
