A view of the book cover and Spine for "The Self Care Revolution" by Suzy Reading

The self-care revolution is designed to help and restore your day to day energy reserves. So that rather than running on empty, you will have the strength and spirit to excel with whatever life brings.

If you want to achieve any goal, any change, or development, you are more likely to succeed when you are energetically topped up. Self-care is the fuel to help you last the distance and to enjoy the journey. 

Suzy wrote this book based on life-experience of motherhood colliding with the terminal illness of her father. She is a chartered psychologist, yoga teacher and health coach. Brutally honest and reflective, Suzy shares the toolkit she developed, her vitality wheel framework, covering 8 pathways for nourishment: 

  • Sleep, rest, relaxation and breathing
  • Movement and Nutrition
  • Coping Skills
  • Physical environment
  • Social Connection
  • Mood Boosters
  • Goal Setting and Accomplishment
  • Values and Purpose

In this hectic world, self-care needn’t be elaborate, grand, expensive, or time-consuming. Micro-moments dotted throughout your day can help you navigate stress loss and change, promote healing, protect you from burnout, cultivate clarity and maximising life’s joys.
