In the opening chapters, ’20 Habits of Self Care’ makes a bold claim that by implementing some of the activities from the book into our lives, we can expect to lead an improved life. I was sceptical of this claim at first but by the time I had reached the end of the book I could see how by implementing some of the activities and ideas that most resonated with me, I  could expect to see an increase in my mental wellbeing.

Often when we think of self-care, we think of treating ourselves; whether that be to something nice to eat or time doing an activity we enjoy.  Whilst this can fulfil part of our individual self-care needs, the self-care habits in this book go deeper than this and are about shaping our overall wellbeing rather than a quick pick-me-up. The ‘habits’ are ideas that can be implemented into one’s life and therefore become the everyday rather than a special treat.

One idea that resonated with me personally was the concept of personal space in relation to technology.

Technology and personal space are not something I have put together before and this has encouraged me to have some downtime from my mobile phone.  Perhaps I will have my time away from technology whilst spending time in nature, really focusing on my surroundings rather than hiking through a park with my headphones on thinking that I have ‘done’ nature for the day.

There is a running theme throughout of improving self-esteem and I would say that this book is ideal for someone who is looking to boost their mental wellbeing and/ or self-

esteem.  If you are someone that is suffering from depression, implementing some of the activities in this book may well be very useful for you but self-care may begin with fulfilling basic needs such as looking after health and hygiene. In that case, this book may be the next step.

This book appears to be written from Karin’s own journey of self-care.  A lot of examples are written from her own personal experience which gives credibility and integrity to the ideas that are

discussed.  I particularly liked the practical nature to this book.  It’s concise but has many ideas for personal reflection (making it personal to each reader) and practical ideas on how to implement some of habits into your life.  Rather than being a theoretical book that is read and then stays on the shelf, I can see how the activities and ideas could become part of the everyday for both myself and my clients.

Karin Brauner’s recently published book on Self Care is the first and only book you will need to buy on self care. Whether this is the first time you have dipped your toe in the world of wellness and self care or you are well versed on the subject, this is the only book you’ll even need. Well written,  with easy to follow instructions on how to reframe your life, this is a self care book with a difference.

The author is honest with the reader right from the beginning , she doesn’t sugar coat the reality, that living your true life, will require hard work, and dedication to understanding yourself.  That is just one of the reasons why this book is different from the rest, she is not offering a quick fix, there are of course little exercises that can be done in times of needs, but she is offering much more than that, she is offering a mindset reset, one that will change your whole life and you’ll finish the book knowing yourself better than you ever thought possible .

The book starts out by concentrating on the importance of boundaries in your life and highlights the tools needed to start structuring your own life with boundaries, dealing with ‘your mind, body, sprite and relationships’. You will learn how to structure your life in a way that is dictated by your needs and not societal demands.

As you realise that you too are worthy of happiness, the author guides you through the difficult relationships you may have to navigate, by not shying away from conflict, but meets them head on bringing about a new respect for both you and your relationships.

Each chapter has a different theme that you can dip into at any time you are struggling with that particular issue in your life. You are given tips for improving the situation, but more importantly how to reduce the likelihood of coming across these situations again, you will have learned the tools to deal with the next step when needed. Each theme is fully explored,  then you will be lead through a series of visualisation exercises and given options for alternative outcomes, it’s the ultimate learning tool.

As you continue your journey into self awareness, it will become easier to identify old patterns, and make new behaviours.  The author gives you the power to say No, and in a world where saying yes is the only answer, you are helped to take back your power and own your own destiny and regain that control of your life.

Through a series of visualisation exercises, meditations, reframing and life hacks , you will learn how to take responsibility for your decisions. You will end up confident in your identity and living a life that is true to who you are at the core.

You learn how to trust yourself, after all who knows you better than you do, it’s time to start listening to yourself and this book gives you the tools to do so.

Self Care Book – Out Soon!

NEW BOOK


Dear readers,

I hope you have enjoyed the bank holiday weekend!

I will resume regular posts next Monday.


For this week, I would like to leave you with the news that I have finished writing my first ever book!

It is now in editing and can’t wait to share it with you all!

20170810_114447

It’s going to be on the topic of Self-Care, which is what I started writing about last August when I started publishing blog posts regularly.


I will be writing more blog posts or social media posts to talk a bit more about what you can find in the book –  what topics I’ve discussed, the resources you can use in your life after reading it, so you can get good at your own self-care, and other resources I’m putting together now – like a facebook group to carry on the conversation of self-care and get more tips and ideas from others interested in improving their self-care tools, skills and time spent doing these activities.
