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 An Invitation to Self-Care, Tracey Cleantis changes the dialogue about taking care of ourselves and demonstrates why real self-care is more than just routine self-indulgence. Feelings of lasting satisfaction, fulfillment, and joy are all influenced by your self-care mind-set. 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, you are invited to consider self-care across your relationships, finances, spiritual, and professional life—and more.
