About Book Cover

Book Cover: Self-Care The Road Less Taken
Image Source:

The Book cover of the Ebook ‘Self-Care The Road Less Taken‘ is well designed by the author who preferred to print her own picture as a book cover. This clearly depicts a selfless yet independent person who is equally eligible for self-care. A subject that is conveniently kept on the back burner most of the time by most people. At first, sight, looking at the cover page gave me intuition, the book might have talked about only women’s self-care, but this really came as a surprise for me; it is purely about Self-Care irrespective of gender.

My Review

The eBook Self- Care The Road Less Taken is a compilation of 26 chapters in total. Where each chapter is well-curated with the 26 tips of self-care for instance, “Ask for help, setting boundaries, sleeping, honing skills, gratefulness, read, mindfulness, forgive, spirituality and many more. I like the tagline of the ebook, i.e., ” The Road Less Taken,” I couldn’t agree more on this Self- Care is the most underrated practice that we follow in our life. The author has beautifully discussed the several factors that aid in building the base of Self- Care in both ways, physically and mentally, up to a great extent.

Hit Points

What I like the most about the book, its easy language. Every topic has been explained in a very concise way by giving few casual examples. This trick of the author is the key skill to connect with her readers. For, e.g., “In the chapter NOSTALGIA, the author shared some tips how a simple chit chat over the gone days can connect you with the person you are sitting in any situation, and you start feeling connected.” Isn’t that true? Sharing one of the paragraphs where as a reader, I find it so relatable, and I am sure everyone out there will agree with the author:

Miss Points

From the cover page to the content, I like everything about the book that the author has mentioned to explain the big and small things in the best way to imbibe the practice of self-care—only one thing I missed, i.e., Food/Nutrition. I truly believe that the goal of self-care cannot be accomplished without mentioning the importance of nutrition. At the right time, the right food with the right quantity is the foundation of any care.

My Verdict

Self-Care The Road Less Taken ebook is indeed worth reading, especially when you have so much negativity around; a daily dose of self-care becomes the utmost requirement. Therefore, I will put the book under the category of ‘Must Read.’ As a reader and as a guardian, I understand my moral responsibility while suggesting the book to the right audience based on their age. Considering all the chapters, including the alphabet X chapter, I will keep this amazing read for the 16+ age group. Concluding my verdict by rating the book 4 out of 5.

    Your point on the subtitle of the ebook – the road less taken – is so nice. Self-love and setting boundaries is indeed talked about a lot but few practice it.
