Full workbook PDF is not included

Couldn’t work along with the book due to the workbook not being included, PDF only includes some pages.
Narrator has a beautifully soothing voice though and there’s some helpful information.

Activities Involved

Great self help info. I really liked the narrator's voice. There are activities involved with the listening. If you plan to listen in the car or while doing other activities, you may need to relisten to get the most out of it.

I loved it!

This is a all time keeper for me. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and all the wisdom within its pages and, because i enjoyed it so much. I have decided to make it a bi-weekly routine of mine to listen to it while driving for work. Kudos to the author for all of her hard work also to the narrator who did and excellent job. Thank you both!

This is just I needed!

This book is wonderful!
Anyone who is struggling with setting boundaries for themselves, and keeps putting everything and everyone in front of their own needs.... NEEDS to listen to this book.
VERY helpful to guide those individuals, even the ones with the best of intentions, to do better for themselves but seem to not follow through with their self care regimen.
I definitely recommend this book!

Good when you can't be fully focused

Meh

It was just alright, some important good key points and important stuff, but not worth all the listen.

not for me

written for uninitiated mom culture. this feels like a listicle expanded into 5 hours of rehashed content and empty advice that can easily be found for free on your favorite insta influencers page.

if you want real advice for self care this book is just cartoonish.

Great Narration!

The narration can take a book from good to great, because it can actually take you places. Great book.

Think I’ll order the paperback also!

Very doable! Loved this book, I’ll listen again and order the book to keep notes in. The reader was amazing! You would have thought she written the book herself!

Not a fan of the narration

I had to stop listening because of the narration. Narrator had an accent which made it harder to digest the material.
