Self-care is the future of preventative medicine - daily nourishment that gives us a fighting chance to minimise illness, fatigue, depression and anxiety. Central to the concept of self-care is the idea that taking care of yourself is not selfish and offers essential ways to stress-proof your body and mind, bringing us back from the brink of energetic bankruptcy.
Based on the latest scientific research into the mind-body connection, psychologist, yoga teacher and personal trainer Suzy Reading has developed a 'vitality wheel' that offers a complete head, heart and body self-care toolkit that listeners can select from according to their needs.
Included are eight evidence-based ways to boost your happiness, energy, resilience and resourcefulness. Each section includes power poses from yoga that enhance and build on the practical advice.
Suzy Reading provides a self care framework with tips and ideas to make it work for you. It is quite unique because she gives definitive tips to actually implement rather than philosophies to live by.
Giving you tools to create your self-care tool kit using practical advice and yoga to nourish your mind and body - Reading's workbook helps you to take real action. Unfortunately this does not translate as an audiobook, because the print edition includes worksheets and images to follow. So it might be worth listening and reading this book together.
