Description

The go-to guide for self-care—an A to Z, mental health–centric handbook from asking for help to catching some zzz’s

Self-care is everywhere—but sound-bites on this trendy subject tend to focus more on face masks and bubble baths than on its key objective: mental health. Now, top health writer Anna Borges is here to fix that in The More or Less Definitive Guide to Self-Care.

Formerly at BuzzFeed, Borges helped popularize the self-care movement in the first place, and her book distills the “self-care internet” into an A to Z list with over 200 entries—from soul-searching prompts to simple pick-me-ups. Readers can tailor their own routines by choosing among Borges’s strategies, which cover four distinctive realms of self-care: physical, mental, social, and spiritual.

Drawing on real-world experience (her own and others’) as well as expert advice, Borges empowers readers to take charge of their well-being. This beautifully illustrated guide is a one-stop shop for mind, body, and soul.
