Out of all the Self-Care and Self-Love books that I have read this one was the most mis-leading. I am going to keep this review short because, honestly, I skimmed the last 100 pages.

1. Overuse of Quotes:
So many quotes were used to fill up the pages and while some were meaningful, most were used so the author could make this into a book. Then she would go on and explain for 2 pages what that quote meant. Even though the quotes that she used were the most cliche and overused quotes in the

I have picked up many self-help type books on mindfulness, meditation, self-improvement, etc. Most I’ve just tossed aside after a few chapters.

This book is life transforming...pure and simple. I couldn't have been more deeply moved by the author's own personal stories, as well as the in-depth guidance toward becoming more present in my life and in the choices I make.

Fantastic overview without being too preachy. Lots of helpful sources included and showed a few different perspectives.

I found the book to be mostly not useful with a bit of body shaming thrown in

It doesn't happen a lot but I've stopped reading this book halfway through it.
Maybe it's not my type of book, there was too much explaination about meditation and I didn't think it was something that could actually help me.
