Personalizable Self-Care Ideas Just for You

Self-care ideas are unique—they aren’t formulaic, but are personal and ever-changing. The Joy of Self-Care provides space for rest, catharsis, and healing, and brings value back into your cultivation of joy. 

Embrace the joy of being you. What do you miss about yourself? Maybe it’s how you used to easily calm down following stress or enjoy your own company. Gain solace in the midst of chaos by reconnecting with yourself. Self-care isn’t a chore, an obligation, or emotionally exhausting work. It should be a fulfillment of your needs, a safe space, an act of joy. Full of self-care ideas, The Joy of Self-Care has something for everybody. 

Self-care is for everyone. They don’t teach you self-care in school, but everyone needs it. Without it, we feel like we are running on fumes or trudging through the mundane. But finding a personalized self-care routine can be daunting. The perfect addition to any self-care kit, this de-stress book is full of self-care ideas to help you get started—with the help of an expert. Author Becca Anderson specializes in personal growth—with best sellers like Badass Affirmations, Becca shepherds readers to their better selves with positive thinking and other self-care ideas.

Inside The Joy of Self-Care, you’ll find:

  • Self-care ideas to help you physically, emotionally, and mentally recharge
  • A spirit of self-care and self-love

  • How do I use a road map that science confirms works for all teams?

Multitasking Doesn’t Work—Learn What Does!

“…multitasking is, in fact, a lie that actually wastes time, energy, and money. Most of all, it robs us of life and our relationships with others.” —Chuck Norris, world-renowned actor and martial artist 

Through anecdotal and real-world examples, The Myth of Multitasking proves that multitasking hurts your focus and productivity. Instead, learn how to be more effective by doing one thing at a time.

Productivity and effective time management end with multitasking. The false idea that multitasking is productive has become even more prevalent and damaging to our productivity and well-being since the first edition of The Myth of Multitasking was published in 2008. In this revised and updated second edition, author and productivity expert Dave Crenshaw provides a solution for the chaos of distraction that multitasking creates—and a way to combat the temptation to constantly switch between tasks.

Learn how to actually get things done. Dave Crenshaw takes the idea of multitasking as a productivity tool and smashes it to smithereens. But rather than leaving you with the burden of wading through the wreckage all by yourself, he shows you how to focus, move forward, and free up more time for what you value the most.

In this new edition of The Myth of Multitasking, discover:

  • Updated research on how and why multitasking doesn’t work
  • Worksheets to help you figure out how to manage your day effectively
  • Easy, actionable steps to manage your life well and accomplish your dreams and goals
