Book 1.jpg

Peace is Power Self-Care is Self-Love Gratitude Journal

As a counsellor Rochelle’s ethos is to challenge the stigma surrounding mental illness, and to normalise a self-care lifestyle for optimal function.

 

She became a counsellor as she is passionate about enriching people’s lives and helping them learn their power through peace and purpose. However, her awareness that not everyone has the means to access counselling birthed this journal.

Peace is Power: Because Mental Fitness Matters: Self Care is Self Love Pandemic Edition

This self-help guide aims to encourage people to take time for self-care. It also highlights that self-care is a spectrum that varies based upon the individual, their lifestyle, their environment, their emotional, physical, and psychological needs.

 

Self-care doesn't have to be a hot bath or a spa day. For some it could be cleaning a junk draw that’s been making them feel unsettled or writing an essay that has a nearing deadline, for others it could be binge-watching Netflix after a stressful week.

Peace is Power: Self-Care is Self-Love Gratitude Journal: Mental Fitness Matters

This gratitude journal is the grey and pink edition of the one on the left. The benefits of gratitude journaling can include more self-awareness, better awareness of your personal goals, values and what it important to you. 

 

While it's not a replacement for counselling and is best used in conjunction with therapy, this can assist you becoming the best version of yourself.
