Description

How to take care of your own best friend: You!

Self-care is not selfish care. ​It's not just bubble baths, face masks or time-grabs of self-indulgence. Self-care and self-love are far more than that, and Me Time helps to make caring for mind and body an everyday practice.

Me Time reframes self-care. Discover how self-care is a stabilising mindset and an ongoing practice that enriches your life and the lives of those around you. Transform yourself from surviving to thriving.

With its friendly and readable tone, this stunningly illustrated book is your wise, sensible friend with all the insights, facts, positive affirmations, wisdom and covetable ideas to get you reflecting on your self-care. It explores unique ways to nurture our physical, mental, spiritual and future selves.

  • Easy to dip in and out, this book is filled with realistic, manageable and fun self-care activities.
  • Catering to the time-poor, the activities are organised into1-minute self-care ideas right through to half-day activities.
  • Also, includes self-care checklists and further reading ideas; all the tools to get you on the path to self-love through self-care.


Following the success of social worker Jessica Sanders’ debut picture book Love Your Body, Me Timedelves further into the world of self care and self acceptance, for all ages. 

I don’t want to make self-care sound easy, because I know it’s not. It’s easy to slip into self-destruction but it’s hard to pull yourself back out. I’m not perfect at self-care, but it’s a practice I am conscious of and work at – and that is what I hope to be able to share with everyone. A realistic way to practise self-care and help you on your way to self-acceptance and self-loveJessica Sanders

The author

Growing up, Jessica Sanders was always the tallest student in her class, and struggled to accept and love her body. When she was 12, her mother signed her up to play volleyball knowing her height would be celebrated and an advantage. Jessica soon learned that different bodies brought different skills to the team and all these bodies were valued. After leaving high-school, Jessica travelled solo to many countries and climbed some of the world’s highest mountains, always carrying a heavy pack that made her grateful for her strong body. Over time, and through the ups and downs of life's tough lessons, Jessica grew to love and celebrate her body. Inspired by her own journey, Jessica wrote Love Your Body to educate and empower young girls with the message of self-love.

Jessica is an author, advocate, and social worker. She has volunteered for several women’s rights organizations, supported women and children fleeing family violence, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in alliance with African women fighting for their rights to land, and lectured at schools teaching the importance of respect for self and others. Currently Jessica works at the Butterfly Foundation where she educates young people on the importance of positive body image.
