What if being kind to yourself really could change everything?
From #1 New York Times best-selling author Cheryl Richardson, a card deck to inspire you, replenish you, and help you take back your life. For the last twenty years, beloved teacher and coach Cheryl Richardson has dedicated her personal and professional life to the importance of self-care–by sharing what she has learned from her own experience. “I’ve come to understand that selfishness leads to selflessness,” she explains. “When we care deeply for ourselves, we naturally begin to care for others–our families, our friends, our greater global community, and the environment–in a healthier and more effective way.” This joyful and whimsical illustrated card deck, based on Cheryl’s classic Self-Care Cards, has been fully revised with new artwork and fresh ideas to meet today’s needs. This deck puts the power to care for yourself–and thereby for others–literally in your hands. Each card carries a gentle but clear reminder of what’s essential for self-care: to slow down, trust yourself, honour your body, release judgment, open yourself to change, say no when you need to, and more.
Move: A long walk is good for the soul. Get outside and allow Mother Nature to lift your spirits.
Action: Baby steps are still steps and they’re better than standing still.
Rituals: Steady yourself with simple rituals. Do the dishes. Fold laundry. Water the plants. Make a cup of tea. Let wisdom sneak up on you.
Time: Time spent worrying is time spent.
Cheryl Richardson is the author of numerous books and was the first president of the International Coach Federation. Her work has been covered widely in the media and she was the team leader for the Lifestyle Makeover Series on the Oprah Winfrey Show.
