My favourite Audible books to listen to when I'm cleaning

running a bed and breakfast Apr 20, 2021

I’ve become a bit addicted to listening to Audible books. But, whilst I love reading fiction books of most genres, I prefer to listen to non fiction for some reason.

I particularly enjoy listening to them when I have a task I don’t want to do - like cleaning the bed and breakfast. They also make long car journeys and dog walks a bit more interesting.

One thing I don’t like is wearing headphones that mean that I can’t hear guests knocking or cars behind me on a walk. Plus I have never managed to get a pair of Apple ear buds to stay in my ears!

So I bought a pair of Aftershox headphones. They sit under your ear, so you get good sound quality but can also hear what’s going on in the background. 

Here are some of my favourite Audible listens. Apart from the last book, which I haven't quite finished, I've listened to them all at least twice!

If you don’t already have an Audible account, it’s £7.99 including one book a month. Click here to get a free 30 days trial including one book

The Chimp Paradox by Prof Steve Peters

Anyone who has been on my course in recent years will know about the Chimp Paradox. In fact, in the Facebook Group, you’ll often hear members talking about their chimp!

It’s a simplified model for how your mind works and gives you techniques to help you control your emotions for a happier life.

The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins

This book is great if you’ve got into the habit of procrastinating, like when you should have started cleaning the rooms 30 minutes ago or you have a blog post to write!

What I know for sure by Oprah Winfrey

 I’ve listened to this book 3 times now. It’s a like having a big warm hug from Oprah.

Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

 I find it very hard to describe what this book was all about but I loved

Here’s what Amazon says

“Whether you long to write a book, create art, cope with challenges at work, embark on a long-held dream, or simply to make your everyday life more vivid and rewarding, Big Magic will take you on a journey of exploration filled with wonder and unexpected joys.”

Everything is Figureoutable

 Marie Forleo is an American Business Coach.

  • “In this book you'll learn:
  • How to deal with criticism and imposter syndrome
  • Why it's crucial that you strive for progress not perfection
  • How to bounce back from failure
  • How to overcome a lack of time and money"

Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey

I rather feel in love with the sound of Matthew’s voice, after listening to him on the Calm app reading his sleep story, so getting this book was a no brainer. It’s his life story to date.
