Scribe. Jul. 2020. 160p. ISBN 9781950354115. pap. $16. SELF-HELP
This snappy little manual comes from the author of High Sobriety, who writes for those who are struggling and receiving negative messages from their inner critic. Based on the author’s experiences of getting through down times, the book tells readers how they can give themselves a break by loving their bodies, slowing down, being kind, and embracing various other thoughts and behaviors. Each page offers a simple idea (e.g., unplug, change your perspective, ask for what you need) that one can immediately put into practice. Readers can pick and choose among the various suggestions and implement each into a series of daily readings.
VERDICT A handy, feel-good volume of tips and advice for contented living.
