Mastering Self-Care is for anyone who desires to improve their quality of life-from the general public to professional caregivers.

It creates a paradigm shift regarding compassionate care of one's self to prevent burnout in the process of helping others. Handling stress from the inside-out is essential for successfully navigating life's challenges.

This book provides an in-depth perspective on the categories of self-care including: physical, psychological, interpersonal/social, professional, spiritual, and energy management/clearing. Self-assessments are incorporated to give the reader awareness regarding current habits, patterns, and beliefs. It then follows with a section on strategy to assist the beginner in an achievable regimen or improving existing practices for those who are more advanced. Special prevention and identification considerations are outlined for professional and family caregivers, as they can be at high risk of experiencing secondary trauma due to the intensity of their service and care.

Mastering Self-Care gives the reader awareness, inspiration, ideas, and techniques regarding the effective use of self-care as the foundation of healthy and mindful living. This helps to counterbalance personal and professional life stress resulting in increased resiliency, energy optimization, balance and wholeness. Anyone can benefit from this book, from those just beginning to focus on their needs to advanced self-lovers.

What we need is a self-care movement in which each person loves, cares, and takes responsibility for one's self. By acknowledging and responding to our needs, we have more energy and compassion to help others. In this scenario, everyone benefits.
