“As a high-achieving entrepreneur who gets a sense of accomplishment from doing, (yet always feels like I have more to do), this book nailed it in the introduction: 'I am worthy to be cared for and self-care is not yet another box to check.' A Year of Self-Care provides just the right amount of structure, flexibility, encouragement, and reflection to make real and lasting changes in how we treat ourselves in body, mind, and spirit.” —Carol Cox, Founder & CEO, Speaking Your Brand
