Her Words, Her Guide is a self-coaching journal for well-being and inner wisdom


While there are a plethora of self-help books on the market, few of them focus on true self-empowerment and personal growth. That’s where Her Words, Her Guide comes in.

At its essence, Her Words, Her Guide is a self-guided journal that favours self-discovery and character virtues over goal setting. The book’s less-is-more attitude ultimately aims to motivate its readers/users to concentrate on what matters most; inner well-being.

Recent psychological research suggests that if we get the first things right, that is having a good sense of who we are, what we love to do, understanding and building our character, we become more intrinsically driven, and the motivation to work through tasks to attain our goals becomes easier.

Each chapter includes a “virtue”, along with four subsequent sections: read, reflect, respond, and review, encouraging readers to take a deeper look at how they react to the stresses of daily life.

The book’s founder, Celeste Cai is a Registered Psychologist and Clinical Counsellor from Vancouver. According to Celeste, Her Words, Her Guide incorporates neuroscience and the therapeutic benefits of journaling to create a new self-empowerment hybrid that’s focus on building character as opposed to completing to-do lists.
