Caring for Yourself; You Deserve It!
An interesting book came to my attention the other day. The subject is taking care of yourself. This was something that was difficult for me to learn when I was a young woman. I was sort of forced into it in my late thirties due to overwork and stress. I wish I have been able to put it into effect earlier, when my children were small.
If you are reading this, man or woman, it's probable that you are the chief cook and bottle washer at your house (or at least the head chef). That, and what usually goes with it, is a demanding, stressful, never-ending job. To do it lovingly, joyfully and well means caring for yourself too.
How do you do this? Writing about this new book titled "Self-Nurture", Editor Erica Jorgensen tells us:
'Alice Domar, Ph.D., is the director of
Harvard Medical School's Mind/Body Center for Women's Health and is the author
of "Self-Nurture: Learning to Care for Yourself as Effectively as You Care for
Everyone Else." She appeared in the news two weeks ago for her work with
infertile women. In a study, she counseled infertile women about
stress-management techniques in group therapy, and after one year the group's
pregnancy rate increased by 35 percent.
Read an article on stress management by the author, Alice Domar; it gives you an idea of what this book is about and what it (and you) can do to make you happier and more effective. This is the kind of book that can make a real difference in one's life.
