Let’s face it, if you are not a big reader you may find reading to be boring and maybe even uneventful. If you are trying to build a reading habit, audiobooks would be the best place to start because it is easily assessable – going to work, on a bus, on your walk to the gym in the morning.

These are the 23 best self help book on audible that I consider life-changing. I have broken it down into 6 categories depending on what you are into.

Audiobooks Are Good For Your Mental Health

According to Psychology Today, being read to can calm our anxieties and comfort us. Reading allows escapism from our own negative moods. It also teleports us to a time where perhaps you gathered around a fire and was read to by someone dear, gleeing with anticipation on the words “Once Upon A Time”.

Listening to Audible is a habit that I incorporate daily for my mental health. You can check out more of these daily habits here.
