About the Book
During my decades of coaching clients, whose reasons for seeking my help ranged from complicated personal challenges to professional leadership issues, the most common denominator in all their lives was a lack of attention to self-care. That’s right – self-care: the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness. Put another way, self-care is making deliberate choices to protect our mental, emotional, and physical health. Practicing self-care consistently leads to living a life that is happy, healthy, and peaceful. Too often, we see the obvious signs that we need more self-care in our daily routines: burnout, insomnia, overwhelm, stress, anxiety, fatigue, irritability, lack of interest in activities we used to enjoy, or uncontrollable reactions to situations. And yet we often ignore those signs and keep pushing, striving, and surviving on a heavy diet of numbness and denial. Because denial keeps us safe until we are ready for the truth. It is only the truth that ultimately wakes us up to the better life that awaits us.
This is not an exhaustive book about self-care. Instead, the material is presented as an interactive guide. It is designed to help you make better choices and actions that support a self-care lifestyle, while also making the self-care habits and tools easier to remember – as easy as, say, remembering your ABCs!
