I don't know how about you, but it's been so busy this time of year. Last week, I felt emotionally drained. My daughter's class closed due to a positive COVID case, and my partner had to change his working hours which negatively impacted our family life. On top of that, the holiday season is approaching, I need to finish the content for my new online course and our neighbor who was always very helpful to us announced to us that she was diagnosed with colon cancer. Do you know such kind of feeling, when you have an impression that everything falls apart? In such kind of life moment, it's essential to take a moment for ourselves and take care of our body and soul. Because when we take care of others all the time, it's important to take care of ourselves first, because we can't pour from an empty cup. Right? If you're feeling emotionally exhausted right now, here's a selection of my favorite self-care books that might help you to recharge:
