Scientific American Mind’s Victoria Stern lists three books that help us be our best because “how we think strongly influences our physical and emotional well-being.” Here they are:

  • Up: How Positive Outlook Can Transform Our Health and Aging, by Hilary Tindle – “Tindle reveals that seeing the world through rosier-colored glasses can improve physical health and slow the aging process.”
  • Confidence: Overcoming Low Self-Esteem, Insecurity, and Self-Doubt, by Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic – “people with lower self-confidence are often more motivated and self-aware and better able to take criticism constructively.”
  • Emotional First Aid: Practical Strategies for Treating Failure, Rejection, Guilt and Other Everyday Psychological Injuries, by Guy Winch – “offers advice for how to cope with life’s emotional wear and tear.”
