'A revolutionary self-care framework that is honest, compassionate and completely actionable'
DR BECKY KENNEDY, Sunday Times bestselling author of Good Inside

What does self-care really mean? From juice cleanses to face rollers, we are sold breezy fixes to long-term social problems that manifest in us as burnout, disillusionment and stress. Yet, more than ever, many of us are feeling the consequences of these empty promises and are looking for a meaningful solution.

Now, psychiatrist and women's mental health specialist Dr. Pooja Lakshmin offers a sustainable practice for real self-care: an ongoing internal process that puts us in the driver's seat of our own lives. Because real self-care isn't something to buy - it's a way to be. This is Pooja's answer to the scores of women who feel let down by our culture and come to her seeking help. Real self-care requires setting boundaries, treating yourself with compassion, making choices aligned with your values and asserting your power. When we practice it, we see changes in our relationships, our families, our workplaces - and our broken systems.

The result - reconnecting with ourself and having ownership over our life - is nothing less than a personal and social revolution.
