As if all of the wonderful stuff in my package from Mel wasn‘t enough, my witch sister/swap host extraordinaire Rachel has spoiled me even further. 😍

Thank you so much, my friend, for all of this awesomeness! I‘ve wanted the tagged book for a while, and I‘m crazy about everything else you chose for me. You are the best! 🖤🖤🖤

Another library borrow! I‘ll have to get a copy of this for myself, because it has loads of self-care tips, journal prompts, and even recipes. Definitely a good resource when you feel like you need some TLC.

StayCurious I loved your review. One of the things I talk to my therapist about is whether or not I am able to read - if I can, I'm doing better than usual. If I can't, I need to work on my mood. It's amazing how our brains work. 2mo
TheReadingMermaid @StayCurious I concur wholeheartedly 2mo

A fun little book filled with mantras and ideas on how to reconnect with the energies and the world around you as self care. Lots of little craft ideas and “recipes”.

I must get myself a copy of this! Short but full of self care tips that you don‘t have to necessarily be a “witchy” person to use and appreciate. I love how it included recipes for food, bath salts and teas. If self-care and self-love are goals for you or just something you struggle with (like me) give this one a try. It could just give you the boost you need.

xxjenadanxx I‘m currently reading this and loving it! 7mo
Chrissyreadit I need this book! 7mo

Loving this book so far! I didn‘t realize how badly I needed this book at the current moment. The cover is gorgeous and it‘s a quick read. Don‘t really want it to be over just yet!

thebookishtype15 I just had this checked out from the library and I loved it! 7mo
TheReadingMermaid I am also reading this book and I absolutely love it. I am taking my time going through and doing all of the exercises and journal prompts. I just love it so much like you said I don't want it to be over. LOL 7mo
RainyDayReading @thebookishtype15 It was so good! I wish I had my own copy now haha. 7mo

RainyDayReading @TheReadingMermaid I wish I had my own copy so I could go back and refer to it! Unfortunately this one has to go back to the library 😪 I love the fact that it includes food recipes, first book I‘ve come across that has included something like that! 7mo
thebookishtype15 Right! You should also check out The Spirit Almanac by Emma Loewe. I checked that one out at the same time as witches guide and loved that one, too. Very similar 7mo
RainyDayReading @thebookishtype15 I‘ll definitely check that one out! I‘ve stacked it so I won‘t forget haha. Thanks for the recommendation! 7mo

SmartSassery I was just looking at this book. Is it good? 8mo

TheReadingMermaid @SmartSassery if you are looking for something like a beginner's guide into magic and Wicca then this is not the book for you. This is a more advanced guide that takes you through different magical things that you can do to perform small self care rituals. Like bath salts and burning rituals and aromatherapy. I absolutely love it! I highly recommend it. 8mo
SmartSassery I think you just helped me make up my mind. Thank you very much. 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @SmartSassery you are most welcome sweetheart. And I only mentioned that it isn't a beginner's guide because when I was reading the reviews a lot of the negative reviews were on that topic. I was wondering why people were expecting this book to be a beginner's guide 🤷🏻‍♀️ not quite sure. 8mo
SmartSassery I find myself wondering the exact same thing sometimes. It seems finding really good reviews can require a bit of hunting. I shamefully find myself reading some for entertainment. lol 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @SmartSassery don't be ashamed sweetheart some of those reviews are hilarious 😂😂😂 but nevertheless it is a beautiful book and I hope that if you get it it really brings you a lot of joy because it has definitely done that for me. It's more than worth the $12 that it is on Amazon. 💗💗💗 8mo
SmartSassery 😂 😂 They really are. 💜 Thank you very much. I'm really excited for it now. I appreciate all the advice. 8mo

I love this week‘s questions (even if I‘m a bit late answering them) 😃

1. Having surgery next month, and I will be gentle on myself during recovery. Treating myself to a hiking day trip beforehand.
2. My curiosity and love of learning, and daring to be different.
3. Always standing up for what I believe in, even when I am in the minority.
4. 💜💙💜💙

sudi Love the answer to the 2nd one 😊❤ 8mo
Kaye 3- 👍🏼. Good for you. 8mo

4thhouseontheleft @sudi Thanks! @kaye 3 has definitely lost me a few “friends” over the years! @BooknerdsLife Thank you! 8mo
Kaye If they were friends, they‘d like you as you are . You don‘t always have to agree with friends just so they‘ll like you. 8mo
Crazeedi Good luck and speedy recovery, I just had surgery end of January too. Be patient with yourself!! 💜 8mo
wanderinglynn Best wishes for a speedy recovery after your surgery. 💜 Thanks for playing! 😘 8mo

Crazeedi My daughter was diagnosed w BPD and bipolar 10 yrs ago, she has struggled with addiction but has been clean, she was trying to self medicate and has had a hard road. I love her so much, 8mo
BlameJennyJane I‘m super curious about the BPD book. Would love to hear your feedback on it at some point. I am always looking for self-help suggestions for my clients and good, practical BPD self-help can be particularly challenging to find. 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @Crazeedi oh my goodness that is so hard. I'm so very sorry to hear that 😢 the best advice I can give you is to get her in to see her doctor and get her on some good psych medications instead of self-medicating. It is difficult to actually admit when you need psych medications but they do help immensely! Please keep me updated sweetie. Much love to you and yours 💗 8mo

TheReadingMermaid @BlameJennyJane OMG girl I absolutely love that BPD books so much. I carry it around with me in my purse. The book goes through different scenarios of situations you may find yourself in and goes through practical DBT and CBT skills that you can use according to the scenario. It is brilliant! I highly HIGHLY recommend this book! 🦋 8mo
BlameJennyJane Fantastic! I may just have to pick it up and will definitely recommend to clients. I love it that DBT is becoming more “user friendly” and doesn‘t require a specific formula- group, individual, therapy, phone calls, etc. treatment model that just isn‘t practical for people with busy lives and families! 8mo
BlameJennyJane Oh, and thanks for posting! 💖 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @BlameJennyJane you're more than welcome sweetheart. Definitely pick this book up. I recommend it to everybody! Not just people with BPD but especially to people with BPD... if that makes sense LOL 😋 8mo
BlameJennyJane Makes total sense! 😊 8mo
vkois88 Both are on my TBR. I've looked at the BPD book for a long time, and similar ones. It's just hard to bring myself to buy it. It's hard to deal with sometimes. 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @vkois88 I highly recommend both. I got to skim through the witches book of self-care today and it looks absolutely amazing also. I can't wait to really dive in and read it all 😍 8mo
vkois88 I'll have to see if my B&N has it. I have a couple of coupons I need to use by the end of the month 8mo
Crazeedi @TheReadingMermaid she is on meds, her addiction was years ago, she has come very far and has done amazing. Sorry I didn't make that clear. She has been under care etc. thank you for your kind words!! (edited) 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @Crazeedi oh that is so wonderful to hear! Many blessings to her and you sweetheart 💗🤗🤗💗 8mo
Crazeedi @TheReadingMermaid thank you!💜 8mo

I‘m playing around with how I do self-care in the New Year, and I spent this afternoon planning a self-care calendar for January. Some of these ideas come from the tagged book. Some goals are reminders of current activities more than a new goal (exercise), but I like to write it down anyway! #newyear #selfcare

tracey38 That's a grwat idea. I have been wanting to keep something similar for self care in 2019 as I have had a hard year. ❤❤ 11mo
4thhouseontheleft @tracey38 These are incorporated into my regular calendar, so we‘ll see how well it works out! I‘ve never actually planned self-care this far in advance before, so it‘s a bit of a switch to being proactive instead of reactive to see if it helps more during the stressful times. 11mo
Blaire Love this! My theme for this year is health - I‘m picking a different focus for each month (physical, financial, community etc) and giving myself a few goals. 11mo
