A beautifully illustrated self-care book, jam-packed with tiny ways to be kinder to yourself, practise gratitude and embrace mindfulness, every week of the year.
Providing a place for readers to reflect, find moments of calm and dream big, every page of this stylish book features a quote, activity or tip to inspire, soothe a busy mind and restore.
A Year of You guides readers through the seasons – decluttering your mind for spring, unlocking sunny thinking for summer, stimulating your senses for autumn and kickstarting cosy kindness for winter. The beautiful simplicity of the book means there is no right way to use it – you can follow it season by season and week by week, or simply dip in and out whenever you need a boost. It’s up to you.
The mental health benefits of mindfulness have been recognised for many years, but through lockdown in 2020 the importance of taking care of our wellbeing has become clearer than ever. This book offers a simple way to build time for your own wellbeing into your week – whether you have 60 seconds or 60 minutes, there’s something for you.
The pages are peppered with quotes from well-known writers, artists, actors and singers, sharing wisdom on happiness, hope and courage – from Vincent Van Gough, Margaret Atwood and Albert Einstein to Reese Witherspoon and Lady Gaga.
With simple exercises and activities to try throughout the book, this handy guide helps you to take back control of your wellbeing, by:
- Colouring for mindfulness (beautiful illustrations
to colour in throughout the book)
- Practising gratitude
- Exploring mindfulness techniques
- Setting goals
- Reconnecting with nature
- Celebrating achievements
- Embracing self-kindness
- Sparking creativity
- Unplugging from technology
This is the perfect book to gift to yourself, a friend or family member this Christmas to help 2021 be a year full of positivity, creativity and brilliance.
