Be You, Only Better: Real-Life Self-Care for Young Adults (and Everyone Else) (Paperback)
Along with all the perks of becoming an adult come challenges and the need to learn skills that help you self-regulate as you venture into new experiences. Highlighting five key areas of life -- physical, mental, emotional, social, and financial -- Be You, Only Better offers science- and experience-backed tools and easy-to-implement techniques for success. Skill-building and self-care practices -- such as journaling, getting enough sleep and exercise, embracing nature, managing time and money, and practicing gratitude, mindfulness, and optimism -- are presented, and each is illustrated with the story of a real young person. These practices will help you create a resilient foundation for your powerful future. You'll discover a wonderfully accessible lifeline and a realistically inspiring guide to leading -- and loving -- your best possible life.
