Self Care books are something that is getting more and more popular today, and for good reason. With how hectic most of our lives seem to be, we often forget that we need to take care of ourselves.
Using a self care guide is the perfect way to reset you mind, take the necessary steps to better mental health, and get on the track to better physical health too.

I kind of fell in love with this journal the first time I saw it in the bookstore.
The water color images are so soothing, and create a perfectly Zen atmosphere for writing and introspection.
In this book, Yoga teacher Elena Brower gives us a space to explore our thoughts, doodle, and jot down what we are feeling in the moment. This journal is for reflection, inspiration and finding yourself.

I love the idea behind this book.
Another book by author Elena Brower, this Yoga practice workbook is a great investment. Self Care books don’t always have to bluntly say “self care book” on the cover to be beneficial.
This book is all about movement based meditation and mindfulness, and how being more aware of your body can a very healing thing.
I know that in my life, yoga has definitely helped and inspired me to take better care of myself.
I feel like I am more aware of my body, what it needs and how I am feeling because I feel more connected to it.
