I borrowed this from my mom's bookshelf while visiting her and then, I conveniently forgot to give it back to her. The title really appealed to me. At the time, I was in need of some comfort and it was helpful having this book to look through.

For most people, self-care is the first thing to go out the window when they aren't feeling well, or they're busy and stressed. This is especially the case for women who are usually concerned about caring for everyone else, but themselves.

This guide can help remind you to proactively take care of yourself. It also can ease the uncomfortable feelings you might feel during life via a helpful chart in the middle of the book (Pages 116-121). You locate on the chart the mood you are in, like cynical or disconnected or overwhelmed, etc. This feeling is graphed with corresponding page numbers of "comfort activities" you can do to feel better.

I haven't done all the activities in here, nor have I done half of them. There are so many and some I just don't connect with. My favorite activity section is "Comfort Rituals". I do a variation on a couple of ideas in there. I think this book is a good resource with many varied, helpful ideas that can give people hope.

The book is soft cover. It is 220 pages. The price on the back is $14.00.
