5 out of 5 stars

This book helps you to reconnect with your core self, grow in your courage and creativity, and engage in your relationships, all in baby steps that remind you to take care of yourself and reflect on what you truly need. This book has sections to “Nurture Yourself, Expand Your Mind, Get Creative, Move Your Body, Get Organized, and Embrace Your Community.” Each section has insightful journal prompts, affirmations, meditations, gentle activities, and inspirational quotes to get you motivated.

I’m truly impressed at how this book uses thoughtful prompts and deep themes to sweetly guide the reader into a better understanding of the many aspects of self-care. And yet it never feels too heavy! Each activity is a simple little thing, a cup of tea, a walk in the sunshine, listening to a favorite song. And yet the impact is immense because of the introspection that is happening.
The quotes really made me think differently about my self-care habits. The tone of the writing is compassionate and encouraging, perfect for anyone who has been neglecting their self-care or may be depressed or anxious.

This book allows the reader to be imperfect, to try a little each day, so that it is not overwhelming. I like that you don’t have to be a machine of positivity to read this book! You can be a real person with real feelings that go up and down. This book gives you tools to manage those emotions in a healthy way, but you should never ignore those feelings or try to be perfect.

The design is beautiful with soft colors and an art style like the cover. There is different artwork for each section, with drawings of trees, sunshine, clouds, and mountains. It’s very peaceful and a lovely background for all the quotes.

I’m truly impressed with this book and the way it is organized and presented!
