I have been staying with my sister and when I have been trying to sleep lately I have been reading her "self help" books to fall asleep. They tend to be a touch religious at times and say the obivious other but they make me think.<br><br>
Should I pay attenion to what they are saying or just use them like I have as night time sleep aid? Do any of you like them?

(Damn slow computer made me double thread)<br><br><br>
"The five love languages" gary chapman<br>
"You can heal youself" Louise Hay (apperently you can think cancer away, wtf?)<br>
And now started "Self-Esteem" Matthew McKay, Patrick Fanning<br><br>
I only started reading them because they where here.<br><br>
Are any really good?

The 5 Love Languages is an interesting read and I think it would be good to continue with it!<br><br>
Dr. Zimbardo supports 'Self Esteem' and I respect the man's work. Read it!<br><br>
Louise Hay is a 'classic' in the world of natural healing. Read it and set aside what doesn't resonate with you, keep what does. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Any others to recommend?<br><br>
My sister has a huge bookshelf full of them but like I said some go very religious.

They can help if you're open to what they espouse.

i'm not into them. i started one recently (suggestion from a friend) and while it started out great it's not "calling" me. I have read Creative Visualization a few times but i'm not sure if that's considered self help...?<br>
definately would not be into religious ones at all.

I like Buddhist self-help books (which is kind of an odd expression, since the concept of "self" is what gets us in trouble in the first place <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:">). I like Pema Chodron and Thuch Nhat Hanh.
