Do you find that self-care often becomes another task on your to-do list? Are you seeking a nuanced approach beyond mere relaxation to enrich your wellbeing? The Day Crafting Self-Care Workbook is your guide to a life where self-care is not an afterthought but a finely crafted practice.
What is Day Crafting?
Day Crafting is the everyday art of making a good life. It’s a set of methods that teach you to use your time meaningfully to craft the style in your lifestyle. Imagine days filled with meaningful moments, gentleness, and increased self-awareness. That’s the promise of Day Crafting.
Why This Workbook Stands Apart
This workbook moves beyond the familiar territories of sleep, exercise, and nutrition. It delves into the intricate layers of emotions, thought processes, purpose, and identity. Each moment of mindfulness, each healthy meal, and each restful night’s sleep become the materials from which you craft your wellbeing.
Inside You’ll Find:
- Exercises designed to manage stress and create your own self-care retreats.
- Strategies for developing automatic habits that serve your long-term wellbeing.
- An emphasis on striking a balance between intentional self-care improvements and periods of just being.
- Guidance for designing both your immediate self-care needs and for your years to come—being kind to future you.
A Seamless Part of the Apprentice Series
This workbook complements the Body-clock Workbook, which explores the day and energy as a whole, and the Productivity Workbook, which focuses on the part of the day we call work. The Self-Care Workbook rounds out your toolkit, covering rest, maintenance, and a wide range of ideas relating to health and wellbeing.
Next in the Day Crafting Apprentice Series, this specialist workbook builds on the foundations explored in the Introductory workbook. Apprentices must complete the Introductory Workbook before continuing with any of the four specialist workbooks: Body-clock, Productivity, Self-care and Change.
Craft Your Days, Craft Your Life
By honing your toolset, you enable yourself to craft better quality days enriched with resilience and health. Don’t merely live through your days; craft them into a life well-lived.
Review. Emma Major. Artist, poet and pioneer minister
I live with disability and chronic illness, and good days are few and far between, but thanks to the Day Crafting process, I have learned to value self-care and craft the best of each day, including active rest, to find daily acceptance of my situation.
If any paragraph from this workbook explains the process, it is this… “The idea behind self-care is that by taking care of yourself and your needs, you are better equipped to manage the demands and stresses of daily life and improve your overall quality of life.”
Bruce provides a great deal of theory and detail, but there is no need to feel overwhelmed because the workbook quickly puts the theory into practice, allowing you to learn through experience. Using the workbook, you will find that day crafting your self-care will give back so much more than it takes from you.
I never thought self-care could be anything but a necessary evil to endure. However, understanding the essential value of self-care has allowed me to find joy and meaning in rest and relaxation. I no longer feel guilty for resting; instead, I prioritise my wellbeing and the tasks I need to do.
