Self-care is the future of preventative medicine – daily nourishment that gives us a fighting chance to minimise illness, fatigue, depression and anxiety. Central to the concept of self-care is the idea that taking care of yourself is not selfish and offers essential ways to stress-proof your body and mind, bringing us back from the brink of energetic bankruptcy.
Based on the latest scientific research into the mind-body connection, psychologist, yoga teacher and personal trainer Suzy Reading has developed a ‘vitality wheel’ that offers a complete head, heart and body self-care toolkit that listeners can select from according to their needs.
Included are eight evidence-based ways to boost your happiness, energy, resilience and resourcefulness. Each section includes power poses from yoga that enhance and build on the practical advice.
