In other posts, we’ve talked about the importance of self-care, how these rituals look different for everyone and why it's so important to carve out time for ourselves on a regular basis.
One of our absolute favourite acts of self-care during the cold winter months is soaking in a hot bath at the end of the day. Although it’s definitely nice to light up our candles, close our eyes and do absolutely nothing, we can often find ourselves in the company of a good book when taking a soak.
In need of a good read? Here are a few gems that we're reading this month.
THE SEAT OF THE SOUL- by Gary Zukav
The Seat of the Soul is one of those books that changes the way you see the world, and your interactions with other people. It also helps you to gain an understanding of your own actions and motivations. Chances are, you’ll read this book more than once; it's our third time.
"When the personality comes fully to serve the energy of its soul, that is authentic empowerment."
NEON SOUL: A COLLECTION OF POETRY AND PROSE- by Alexandra Elle
Alex Elle shares her message of hope through her powerful prose. She writes frankly about her experience of healing from hurt and preparing for joy. Through her writing, she celebrates her triumph over adversity and her incredible resilience.
For those of you on the gram, her account @alex_elle is one of our all time favourites!
