Tracey Cleantis discusses and signs "An Invitation to Self-Care"
DIESEL, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Tracey Cleantis to the store to discuss An Invitation to Self-Care: Why Learning to Nurture Yourself Is the Key to the Life You've Always Wanted, 7 Principles for Abundant Living on Sunday, April 9th at 3:00 pm.
Too often, we settle for the notion that self-care means giving ourselves treats and rewards for good behavior. But it's so much more than that. Welcome to the self-care revolution!
A day of indulgence at a spa--or at home on the couch--might help us unwind and feel temporarily renewed, but is that all there is to self-care? In this book Tracey Cleantis changes the dialogue and shows why real self-care is more than just routine self-indulgence--it's a lifelong practice that's essential to finding fulfillment and joy.
An Invitation to Self-Care uncovers seven principles for care that are rooted in self-empowerment and self-knowledge. Through personal stories and observations, exercises and quizzes, and interviews with experts and everyday people, Tracey invites you to consider self-care across your relationships, finances, spiritual and professional life--and more. By accepting who we are, what we need, and how those needs evolve over time, we create space for self-care's transformational magic in our lives. In fact, an authentic self-care practice is the secret to the life you've always wanted.
