There is a plethora of emerging literature regarding self improvement and the desire to be happy while having -or searching for- it all.  And who better to give advice on attaining a happy, healthy, successful lifestyle than the rich and famous?  The most popular current self-help books are written by female celebrities who seem to have it all together.

Lea Michele

The accomplished Broadway and television actor and singer came out with, You First: Journal Your Way to Your Best Life in 2015, which chronicles her best advice to living happily amidst struggles, such as the death of her longtime boyfriend.

Kate Hudson

Another wildly well-known actress, Kate Hudson, released her book, Pretty Happy: The Healthy Way to Love Your Body, around the same time she launched her clothing line “Fabletics.” Her book focuses on loving your body and yourself as the first step towards happiness.

The most recent book released from Hollywood is Cameron Diaz’s, The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body. It is accompanied by an online blog where people can continue their reading experience by viewing articles on the best work outs, recipes for eating well, tips on how to unwind after a busy day, and the best summer activities with friends.  You can find the blog here!

What these three women have in common is experience.  They work in a high-pressure industry where everything they say, do, think, and wear is scrutinized.  Because they understand the harsh reality of living under a microscope, they are equipped to give good advice to women and girls.  Whether you are seeking tips on exercise, food, career, or inspiration, one of these books can help you find it and, hopefully, attain happiness.
