How to Master Your Mindset with Audible
As a Confidence Coach, I talk about the importance of working on your mindset a lot.
Just like our bodies need a regular workout to stay healthy and full of energy, our minds do too.
Activities such as journaling, repeating positive affirmations and meditation are all great ways to increase your confidence and keep anxiety at bay but what can you do when you don’t have much time or you’re sat on a plane and accidently packed your journal in your suitcase?
Audible has been a game changer for me.
Living on the island of Utila, Honduras where the only post office we had opened for about a month in the whole year and a half I was there, meant that I could no longer just order a book online.
And as a new entrepreneur who’d only just discovered mindset work, my eyes were suddenly opened up to a whole new genre of books I’d never even considered.
Understanding the importance of learning and working on my own self development but having the issue of not being able to order books and not wanting to read them from my tiny phone screen, I was introduced to Audible.
Much like you can get a Kindle subscription and receive tonnes of ‘free’ books, you can subscribe to Audible for the (bargain if you ask me) price of £7.99 per month and download any one of their hundreds of thousands of audiobooks.
With many of the paperbacks costing more than the £7.99 subscription fee, not only does it often work out more affordable but you no longer have to worry about lugging around a pile of books wherever you travel to.
Instead of watching tv while you wash up or listening to music while you’re in the shower, you can play an audiobook that’ll teach you something and help you grow as a person.
If you’re anything like me and can’t sleep without noise, you can replace the glare of your screen and Bridget Jones’ Diary (I know it off by heart) with a fictional audiobook. You’ll feel a lot more rested in the morning and with the handy sleep timer, you’ll no longer wake up to the blaring noise of the film ending and credits rolling (why are the credits always so loud?!)
Last year, I even gifted my Mum an Audible subscription and it was, without a doubt, the best present she’s ever received from me. Everyday I’d get a new message saying “Ooh have you seen the Audible offer of the day” or “I’ve just downloaded ‘X’ book”.
If one Audiobook isn’t enough, you can also purchase 3 ‘credits’ for the price of £18 which works out at just £6 an audiobook.
As well as regular daily deals, Audible often run a ‘3 for 2’ offer so if you take advantage of the 3 credits for £18 deal, you can nab yourself 3 books for £12 working out at just £4 per audiobook.
Remember, the best investments you’ll ever make are the ones you make in yourself.
So whether you purchase a self development book, invest time in meditation and journaling or subscribe to a handy service such as Audible, you know you’re working on your self development and continually mastering your mindset.
Here are a few of my favourite audiobooks:

Carrie Green: She Means Business

Mel Robbins: The 5 Second Rule
Self care focused:
Rachel Hollis: Girl, Wash Your Face
Jayne Hardy: The Self Care Project
Kamal Ravikant: Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It
Something a bit spiritual:
Elizabeth Gilbert: Eat, Pray, Love
Gabrielle Bernstein: The Universe Has Your Back
Chick lit, easy-to-listen:
Sophie Kinsella: Can You Keep a Secret?
Sophie Kinsella: My Not So Perfect Life
Sophie Kinsella: The Undomestic Goddess
