Everything you need to know about self-care; what it is, why it’s important, why it’s such a struggle and how to integrate it into day-to-day life.

There’s a damaging misconception in society that putting ourselves first is an act of selfishness. But self-care is not just a millennial buzzword. Without the restorative power of self-care, how will we ever escape the vicious circle where we’re sick and fed-up of feeling sick and fed-up? Self-care is a tool, accessible to us all, which helps us to take responsibility for our own happiness – our physical, emotional, psychological and social needs. Jayne Hardy, founder and CEO of The Blurt Foundation, argues that it is the best preventative measure available to us to combat overwhelmedness, stress and ill health, in our hectic, modern world. The Self-Care Project is for those who have been feeling off-kilter for a while but have not been able to put the finger on the ‘why’. It is a no-nonsense, practical journey to help you do just that. It’ll walk you through the case for self-care (why it’s so darn important), why it isn’t selfish at all, help you explore what self-care means for you, what your obstacles might be and provide advice on how to chisel out daily space for self-care in a practical, achievable and realistic way.

    I think this book was mostly written for people who still need convincing that self-care should be a priority. Those people constantly chasing their tail and trying to fit two days into one by multitasking. There were a few nods toward us house bound folks, but I didn't feel very included. The target audience would really benefit from this book, though.

The target audience would really benefit from this book, though. It really drives home the fact that, even though we're living in the best times, people are miserable because they are constantly chasing this goal-driven society and forget to take time out to think of themselves. Your body is like a battery and needs to recharge. I already practise self-care daily, so I needed less of the reasoning and more of the examples. I loved how the self-care methods were caregorised per your need - self-care practices for when you're frazzled, for when you're anxious, for when you're depressed, for when you can't sleep... That was a really nice touch.

    I've really needed to be told recently that self-care is SO important, and anybody can and should make time for it. This wonderful book is the best guide for anybody who needs a bit of encouragement. It gives a bit of history and background about the art of self-care, why it's important, and what counts as self-care (from the smallest things like brushing your teeth and washing, to the larger things like taking time out for exercise and hobbies).

It's given me a lot of ideas and a lot to think about, and I can imagine that for some people, it can be a real wake-up call. I love that although this book is aimed at people with suffering with their mental health, you don't have to be to benefit from this book. Literally anybody could take something away from it, whether you're a student, a full-time worker, a parent, or anybody else. There are tons of wonderful tips and tidbits of advice for anyone who feels like they need some encouragement to shine a little bit brighter.

    I have highlighted parts of this book to revisit in an attempt to increase my own self-care. Reading, obviously, is a major part in my own self-care, as it helps to distract my mind from everyday issues and focuses my thoughts in one place rather than ten!

    This book did a really good job of coming back to the essence of self-care as caring for yourself. There’s been an explosion of the term self-care recently, often being hijacked as a way to sell bath bombs and hygge-y blankets (which are, I have to add, perfectly valid self-caring items for some people!) and often ignoring that self-care will be different for everyone and may come down to eating nutritious meals or brushing your teeth. This book covers various self-care ideas well. The audience i This book did a really good job of coming back to the essence of self-care as caring for yourself. There’s been an explosion of the term self-care recently, often being hijacked as a way to sell bath bombs and hygge-y blankets (which are, I have to add, perfectly valid self-caring items for some people!) and often ignoring that self-care will be different for everyone and may come down to eating nutritious meals or brushing your teeth. This book covers various self-care ideas well. The audience is perhaps someone who needs a little convincing and a gentle nudge towards valuing and taking care of themselves more, and finding out how self-care can work for them. I'm already convinced of the benefits of self-care and there wasn't much content that felt new to me, but I think even if self-care isn't a novel concept to you, it's still a nice book to remind you of things you might have forgotten or just to remind you to actually do the things (my personal book journal page on this book has a page of densely scribbled notes of ideas I liked!). The writing style is friendly and readable, often with headings to break up the reading. This is an easy to read book and should be accessible if your concentration is low. There are illustrations throughout adding extra little self-help prompts which are lovely and add small interactive elements to get you thinking. I liked that you don’t feel you had to engage with these if you don’t want to, tying in with the rest of the book being gentle and undemanding (which is perfect if you’re feeling delicate). I’d have certainly filled some of the illustrations in if I wasn’t reading a library copy! Why not a higher rating from me? I don’t think I was quite the right audience for the book. At times there were some "we all feel X" type statements which didn't ring true to me and sometimes felt a bit alienating. The book was good at dismantling some common reasons why people might not do self-care, such as a desire to stay busy or low self-esteem, but one of the main reasons self-care can be hard for me (due to health), wasn’t really touched on. Another tiny niggle is I tend to prefer self-help books with a ton of academic references. This just isn’t that sort of book (and many people will prefer that!): instead it’s a super gentle guide to show you that self-care is important for everyone, even if you don’t believe that before you pick up the book.

    This is my kind of book. From the first page I knew this was going to be a book well worth reading. The open and honest writing style, is what caught me and made me keep reading (if I was to write a book this is how I'd write it!) along with all the advice too. I could relate to many many points in this book and felt like I was reading about my self at times. Great book, great advice and I'll be starting the #365DaysOfSelfCare challenge too!

    Nothing much new content wise but I think this would be really useful if you're really struggling with life. The author's writing style is warm and empathetic, like a wise aunt who totally gets it. It's one I'll keep on the shelf for when I need reminding to prioritise self care.

    Highly motivating The Self Care Project is all about how to take better care of ourselves and shows how we can do so. Jayne Hardy has written a book full of practical advice which will motivate you to take action. As someone who knows how debilitating depression and anxiety can be I would recommend this book to anyone who suffers or has suffered from mental health problems and to those who want to make more time for themselves.

    Self care has often come up as something I should practice more of. But struggling with depression and mental illness in general makes caring for yourself hard sometimes. The very idea of doing something nice for yourself just stirs up the self loathing and guilt.

I have followed the Blurt Foundation for a while now and love the little pick me up emails they send me and the many advice articles that are available from them. So, when I saw that Jayne Hardy of the Blurt Foundation had written a book, obviously I needed to get it. I don't really read self help books but Hardy is just so down to earth and open, there is a bond almost as you read about her failings with self care and the struggles that she has had. I liked the idea of micro actions of easing yourself into it and she gives you so many practical ideas that you can try implement. I particularly liked the emergency self care section at the end with different sections for different situations e.g self care for when we are worried, for when we can't sleep, for new parent etc. The book is easily accessible and is a great resource for those wanting support in self care. Recommended.

    I started (ish) the year by reading Self-Compassion by Kristin Neff. And I ended (ish) the year by reading this. It has been a year of self-guided research into kindness, and has featured quite a lot of thoughts and reading about self-care/self-compassion. This book is important. It is simply written and accessible. It has exercises and thought provoking questions.

(I borrowed my copy from the library so I tended to write them out in a notebook). There were some practical sections that made sense to me - things like spending a bit of time considering bedtime rituals, what helps to delineate awake time from sleep time for you. Things that, as the best things often do, sound simple and obvious but sometimes need a light shining on them.

There are small exercises/brainstorm style templates if you're into that, and stuff targeted at parents in particular, if that's relevant to you. It struck a good balance between overly clinical and that patronising #positivevibes thing - it's a book genuinely about the self care that's a mental health tool as opposed to the self care that's been co opted by capitalist interests to make you a) buy things or b) hurry yourself into getting better enough for work. At worst - it can't hurt. 👍

Because self-care varies from person to person, it doesn’t give any set plans but it does highlight key areas which need to be taken care off and also pushes aside the myth that self-care is nought but candles and bath bombs. I found it useful and interesting, but perhaps it could have been a bit more detailed with a few example self-care plans. Still, it is a great introduction to self-care as a whole.

    I liked this book. I bought it because at the time I was quite bad with my depression and was quite lacking in the self-care department. However, it took me a while to get into it and I put it down for a few months before picking it up again. There is a lot of reasoning in here, which I wasn't quite expecting, to the point where I got quite bored with it all. I liked the examples, and the bits you could fill in, and I think the book has some sensible points to make. It'd be good for someone who I liked this book.

As for me, I got out of that part of my life on my own, so as I finished it I realised I didn't need the advice any more. It was good advice, all the same.

Even though it was mostly aimed at helping people that suffer from depression, it is really useful for individuals suffering from other mental health issues too such as anxiety, etc. There were so many little hints and tips in there to help you look after yourself that I am definitely going to try when I am not feeling myself.

    Fantastic, non fluffy, tips for self care Loved the writing style & tips. I truly believe it needs a different title & cover to appeal to more people as I thought it would be more fluffy and about bubble baths with scented candles. It seems to be more rooted in 3rd wave (?) therapies such as ACT with reference to motivators etc. Not just a "read once" but a toolkit & workbook to dive back into as needed.

    "Sometimes breakdown precedes breakthrough." I got this some time ago as part of a Buddy Box and since then it has been something I dip in and out of. The sentiment and intention is aligned with the Blurt Foundation in general, but should be noted that it is more in line with their email service rather than their blog posts of useful information and resources. That being said, like the weekly emails it's good to hear some non-specific words of encouragement every now and again! "Sometimes breakdown precedes breakthrough."

    I am a fan of the Blurt Foundation and was eager to hear from the Jayne Hardy herself. She offers great insights into mental illness and suggests little steps you can do to make big changes. It is a great little read for anyone who needs a little safe care motivation. Highly recommend it to anyone who needs some self-reflection and a gentle read.

    3.75 stars from me. Overall inspiring, with practical advice, accurate description of depression and references to many useful websites. However the book does seem a bit repetitive, which is probably the only flaw I find worth mentioning. A wonderful starter book of the “self-care” field, but personally I don’t think I’ll dive any deeper into the same topic.

Jayne Hardy has created a best friend in a book and also the Blurt Foundation, so that even once you've read the last page you are not left alone. Highly HIGHLY recoment this book to anyone at all.

    Some nice little exercises in here to get you thinking about what self-care might look like for you. I found this book through the Blurt Foundation and I love that it incorporates both physhical and mental health, as well as how they can overlap.

    Wasn't quite what I was expecting - the author seems to think all the daily tasks in our lives are somehow categorised as 'self-care'. It was surprisingly light on how to free up time to actually do these things. A disappointing read.

    Really helpful book with some excellent tools for self care. I think that this book would be VERY helpful for someone in an anxious or depressive episode. It might not be so suitable for someone who has never had experience of these disorders.
