Self-Compassion & Self-Care
In all of our lives, these are so helpful for us to understand ways to take a moment to embrace our value and find ways to keep that with us in all our moments. Whether observing the pressures of modern times, relating personal experiences, sharing ways to best protect ourselves, each of these resources allow us to reflect on our successes, revel in them and move forward with a calm confidence.
The circumstances and approaches may differ, the intentions are the same. Sometimes funny, sometimes instructional, always compassionate, these will help you just feel better and look forward.
Are you looking after yourself? For so for many of us, with so much to do and think about, self care - taking care of our mental, emotional and physical health and wellbeing - often falls by the wayside.
The Self-Care Handbook equips you to make positive, helpful choices for incorporating self-care into your life. It explains how to take responsibility for your own wellbeing and provides ideas and practical advice on how you can better look after yourself.
