'Unusually practical, non-patronising and authentic. Think Marie Kondo for the mind' Sunday Times

Wellness pioneers Nadia Narain and Katia Narain Phillips have spent decades helping others to feel their best. But it took them a bit longer to learn to care for themselves. Here they share the small, achievable steps they picked up on a lifetime’s journey towards self-care, and how you can apply them to your life, wherever you are.

Right now, you may be deep in the waves of life, being tossed around. Learning self-care is like building your own life boat, plank by plank. Once you’ve got your boat, you’ll still be rocked by the same waves, but you’ll have a feeling of safety, and a stability that means you can pick other people up on your way.


Self-help, personal development & practical advice, Coping with stress, Women's health, Assertiveness, motivation, self-esteem & positive mental attitude
