You First (Journal Your Way to Your Best Life) by Lea Michele…
What”s the book about?
‘You first’ is about respecting and understanding what you really want—and then going out to achieve it.
In Brunette Ambition, Lea Michele shared a lot of the secrets and stories behind her success, and how she manages to live a balanced and healthy lifestyle despite her hectic schedule. Now, in her second book, she will teach readers how they, too, can be their best selves. In Lea’s opinion, keeping a journal and asking yourself the hard questions about what you want out of life is the best way to achieve your dreams, so she has outlined a series of exercises, prompts, and lists based on her own personal program. Lea’s guided journal will address all the topics she wrote about in Brunette Ambition, including fitness, diet, work, school, and relationships, but with all-new material to help readers reach their goals. Peppered between the advice and exercises will be fun personal anecdotes from Lea to motivate and inspire readers to put themselves first and live their best life.

Journal Your Way to Your Best Life…is a nice approach for the modern women. The cover of the book is gorgeous. This one is a journal that records a journey each woman who would pursue to embrace every step of the insights on her own pace. Inside is gorgeously designed: pink lines for journaling, and calligraphic challenges written on top.
Lea brought up four parts for every woman to start a new and happy life: YOU, AMBITION, RELATIONSHIPS, HAPPINESS. Breaking down to summaries all goodies wrapped in every part:
In YOU women will discover such topics: Who are you is in your roots, your family tree, maternal and paternal heritage, parents’ first date, your history, a family recipe, favorite family memories, what are you admire about your parents. Next part will be about fitness, perfect workout flowchart (in groups, alone, indoors, outdoors), what are you looking to get out of exercise, how does exercise make you feel, change your body,5-week journal space for your goals (routine, exercises). And diet/ nutrition:goals to cut foods your body don’t need, food journal for 2 weeks, 7-day eating analysis, shopping list cheat, healthy snacks and go-tos, good food swaps, fun food challenges.
In AMBITION the gems are: goals (long and short term), role models, mind-expanding challenges, creative challenges (new books to read, movies to watch, concerts to attend, food to taste), local site hunting.
In RELATIONSHIPS to discover: friendships,good friend test, romantic relationships, love vision board, good qualities in your partner, colleagues, what type of coworker are you (test).
