Hell Yeah Self-Care! cover

An activity-based reflective journal to build self-care into your daily life

An activity-based journal exploring self-care in all its forms. This book delves into the why and the how of self-care, examining why it is so foundational to our wellbeing and how we can implement it in our daily lives, drawing on a diverse range of approaches.

Take a moment to pause... Breathe... And ask yourself, what does self-care mean to you?

Times are very tough-in a world that pushes us to go faster, be the best, and get ahead of others, we often forget to focus on ourselves, leaving us with anxiety, anger, burnout, stress, and trauma. In this creative workbook and journal leading mental health pioneers, Alex Iantaffi and Meg-John Barker, provide you with the tools to begin your self-care journey and develop sustainable self-care routines and rituals that work for you.

Featuring a diverse range of experiential exercises, activities, and opportunities for reflection, while drawing upon a range of practices and approaches including systemic and existential therapies, Buddhist mindfulness, Pagan ritual, trauma-informed practice, intersectional feminism and more. This book explores self-care in all its forms and covers somatic self-care, plural selves, emotions and feelings, relationships, and care for others.

Empowering, illuminating and written with authenticity and honesty throughout-this is a manual for everyone and will help you look after yourself on your path towards happiness and wellbeing.

Unpeel the layers in Hell Yeah Self-Care! to understand self-care in all aspects of your life. -- Naomi Ortiz, Author of Sustaining Spirit: Self-Care for Social Justice
With tenderness and expertise, Alex Iantaffi and Meg-John Barker have written a powerful book for those of us who are on a path of healing and are distrustful of the mainstream disease model of mental health. Highly recommended. -- Sascha Altman DuBrul, co-founder of The Icarus Project
