Everything you need to know about self-care; what it is, why it's important, why it's such a struggle and how to integrate it into day-to-day life. There's a damaging misconception in society that putting ourselves first is an act of selfishness. But self-care is not just a millennial buzzword. Without the restorative power of self-care, how will we ever escape the vicious circle where we're sick and fed-up of feeling sick and fed-up? Self-care is a tool, accessible to us all, which helps us to take responsibility for our own happiness - our physical, emotional, psychological and social needs. Jayne Hardy, founder and CEO of The Blurt Foundation, argues that it is the best preventative measure available to us to combat overwhelmedness, stress and ill health, in our hectic, modern world. The Self-Care Project is for those who have been feeling off-kilter for a while but have not been able to put the finger on the 'why'. It is a no-nonsense, practical journey to help you do just that. It'll walk you through the case for self-care (why it's so darn important), why it isn't selfish at all, help you explore what self-care means for you, what your obstacles might be and provide advice on how to chisel out daily space for self-care in a practical, achievable and realistic way. 'Reading this is like a therapy session with a trusted, empathetic friend determined to help you turn things around, minus any irritating self-righteousness' The Independent

Too often, we settle for the notion that self-care means giving ourselves treats and rewards for good behavior. But it’s so much more than that. Welcome to the self-care revolution! A day of indulgence at a spa—or at home on the couch—might help us unwind and feel temporarily renewed, but is that all there is to self-care? In this book Tracey Cleantis changes the dialogue and shows why real self-care is more than just routine self-indulgence—it’s a lifelong practice that’s essential to finding fulfillment and joy. An Invitation to Self-Care uncovers seven principles for care that are rooted in self-empowerment and self-knowledge. Through personal stories and observations, exercises and quizzes, and interviews with experts and everyday people, Tracey invites you to consider self-care across your relationships, finances, spiritual and professional life—and more. By accepting who we are, what we need, and how those needs evolve over time, we create space for self-care’s transformational magic in our lives. In fact, an authentic self-care practice is the secret to the life you’ve always wanted.

Setback, disappointment, failure, frustration, anger and grief - life sometimes seems a treadmill of negativity with only one thing certain: you are not in control of events. This realisation overwhelmed John Frye as he lay in bed with agonising chest pains two weeks after succumbing to coronary palpitations and irregular heart beat. It had been a horrible year anyway and now, it seemed, it and everything else would be over. The answer, Frye suddenly realised, was to take control of his life. We cannot ultimately beat death, but every lesser experience can be dominated by a positive attitude. Frye's approach is to draw strength from setbacks. The lessons of failure hold the key to success; anxiety gives one the strength to overcome adversity; fear activates courage; pain is a symbol of change, a measure of strength and a source of wisdom. All this is empowering. For anyone whose courage to face life and prevail, needs bolstering, this small volume of distilled wisdom will serve as shield and inspiration. Organised as two books in one, the first book offers the distillation of the technique while book two treats each subject in a deeper, fuller manner. Used every day, the Little Book of Self-Empowerment serves as a "daily health check for the mind."

Do you ever feel as if something about you prevents you from being your best self? Do you lack confidence to advance in your career, or do you find yourself unable to meet your needs in personal relationships? Shame could be the culprit. In The Little Book of Shame, Kristina Cizmar (also known as "The Shame Lady") presents an extensive new definition of shame - one that reveals paths for healing and transformation. Instead of defining shame as "I am bad," she shows that shame is better interpreted as "I'm not good enough to belong." Kristina presents a clear way to "translate" our shame and navigate paths to heal our hurts and transform our beliefs. This shift empowers us to break out of the infamous shame cycle, and even use shame to our advantage. For anyone who struggles with shame, or has issues with self-esteem, self-worth, or self-acceptance, The Little Book of Shame transforms how we view the problem, as well as offers a new and easeful solution.
