The Self-Care Prescription by Robyn L. Gobin, PhD

51YaFQA75zL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_I talk to people about self-care all of the time. As a holistic life coach and spiritual counselor, I can’t say enough about the importance of taking care of yourself. Whether you’re single and alone or raising a family, you matter. You matter to your family, your friends, your colleagues, and sometimes even strangers. When you don’t take care of yourself, it’s harder to find the energy to take care of other people.

So, onto this stellar book that I got for free from the publisher. I love it. I mean, I covered many of the things in this book in my now out-of-print Reconnecting With yourself, but all writers covering similar topics will look into things differently and give different insight. No matter how many self-care books and articles you’ve read, I can bet you’ll find something extra in Robyn L. Gobin’s The Self-Care Prescription.

Sel-care encompasses more than physically caring for yourself. You also require social, intellectual, spiritual, and emotional self-care. All of these things are covered in this amazing book.

Each section has so many important tips in them to help you better your life and feel whole again. Did I mention I am in love with this book?

Social Self-Care: This section is all about the importance of healthy friendships, having fun, and taking time to unwind.

Physical Self-Care: Learn to eat right, take time for exercise, and the importance of getting a good night’s sleep.

Intellectual Self-Care: Learning new things all of the time is so important. Even if you learn something simple. Find a hobby. Discover your passions.

Vocational Self-Care: Our jobs are an integral part of life. This section will help you take better care of yourself on and off the job.

Spiritual Self-Care: Whether you’re religious or not, your spiritual self-care will help with positivity, joy, and faith. Learn about meditation and self-realization.

Emotional Self-Care: Emotional health includes learning when to say “no,” identify your triggers, and don’t dismiss your emotions.

This book will change your life.
