Self-care is often misunderstood in our society. far too many of us dismiss it as selfish pampering, and as a result can be devastating for our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Real self-care is anything but self-indulgent. It's an essential discipline, rooted in the reality of who we are as God's beloved children.
in It's Ok to Start with You, therapist Julia Marie Hogan, LCPC, makes the case for making self-care a priority - beginning with reclaiming your own worth. Based on her practice as a therapist, she offers deep insight in to the reasons why we neglect to take care of ourselves and provides needed tools to change our habits of thinking and acting so we can be fully present in our lives and relationships. With step-by-step instructions for building a tailored self-care plan, reflection questions, and note-taking space, this book is your ultimate guide to becoming the most authentic version of yourself.
