The Self-Care Solution: A Year of Becoming Happier, Healthier, and Fitter–One Month at a Time
We hear it time and again: self-care is important. But if social media are to be believed, self-care consists of bubble baths, spa days, and a no-shame attitude toward wine. Jennifer Ashton thought she understood self-care, until a chance decision (the idea of going “dry” and avoiding alcohol for the month of January, following a holiday season that verged on excess) led to a revelation. Self-care isn’t about indulgence, nor is it about making sweeping lifestyle changes, but instead it is about making small choices that lead to you feeling better and healthier.
The Self-Care Solution chronicles Ashton’s decision to turn that one month into a whole year of small changes for the better, one month at a time, including drinking more water, eating less meat, and walking more. Ashton discusses the science behind why these things are important, gives readers the lowdown on her own experiences, and offers tips for anyone interested in incorporating these self-care ideas into their own lives.
Readers will appreciate her down-to-earth tone along with her insight into exactly how and why being “healthier” truly is self-care. This book is recommended for anyone who wants to feel better but needs ideas for where to start.
