Each month, we will share with you a fantastic resource from our Dementia Australia Library.

For August, we have selected The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook A Proven Way to Accept Yourself, Build Inner Strength, and Thrive by Kristin Neff.

Being a carer can be tough on so many levels. Learning to be kind to ourselves can be life changing. This science-based workbook offers a step-by-step approach to breaking free of harsh self-judgments and impossible standards, in order to cultivate emotional wellbeing. In a convenient large-size format, it is packed with guided meditations (with audio downloads); informal practices to do anytime, anywhere; exercises; and vivid stories of people using the techniques to address relationship stress, weight and body image issues, health concerns, anxiety, and other common problems.
