The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron is not just for budding artists.

The international 1992 bestseller is a great starting point for anyone wanting to live life to their fullest potential. Powerful tools we learned more than two decades ago and still practice today are writing the so-called stream-of-consciousness "morning pages" and taking ourselves on an artist date once a week, which basically just means doing one truly nurturing or inspiring solo thing for yourself. It's a fun-to-use guide to a better "you" that has sold millions of copies worldwide, been translated into more than 35 languages and spawned workshops and meet-up groups.
