Frankston City Libraries welcomes best-selling author of Love Your Body, advocate and social worker, Jessica Sanders, to Frankston Library on Tuesday 19 November.
Ms Sanders said she was thrilled to be visiting Frankston Library with her new book, Me Time, and hoped to spread the word that self-care is so much more than individual acts of indulgence.
“Self-care isn’t selfish care. It’s not just massages, bubble baths and candles,” said Ms Sanders.
“I wrote Me Time for the women who wished they’d had Love Your Body as a child and who need to treat themselves like their very best friend. I can’t wait to share that message at Frankston Library,” said Ms Sanders.
“Me Time was inspired by the heart-warming conversations I’ve had with booksellers, parents, and my community on social media. These conversations made it clear to me that we are all collectively struggling to prioritise what we need in this crazy world.
“Me Time reframes self-care from being individual acts of self-indulgence. It presents self-care as a stabilising mindset and an ongoing practice that enriches your life and the lives of those around you.”
Following the success of Ms Sander’s debut picture book, Love Your Body, Me Time delves further into the world of self-care and self-acceptance, for women of all ages.
Filled with evidence-based self-care ideas that range from one minute activities to day long adventures, Me Time shows you how to make time for self-care.
“Me Time is all about reminding yourself that you are worthy of your own care,” added Ms Sanders.
“It’s not just about ‘treating yourself’ to luxury for a moment in time. Self-care and self-love are far more than that, and Me Time helps to make caring for mind and body an everyday practice.”
