Perfect Read For Reducing Stress
Ironically, I grabbed this book as my family was evacuating Hurricane Irma. I needed a diversion and this book proved to be that and more. It was an easy and engaging read and reminded me of the importance of caring for myself, first and foremost. Ms. Watkins has the ability to educate and inform as well as entertain with her often self-deprecating anecdotes. As I am surrounded by successful people and overachievers, I intend to purchase several more copies to pass around.
