I've been following Barrie Davenport for several years now. This book, like all her work, is well written and full of insights that will inform you and help you in your life. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised that it is really much more than 17 rituals (as the subtitle suggests). The book is full of information about who introverts are and how they can use their special qualities to enhance their lives.
I appreciate and admire Davenport's "style" -- she is very thoughtful and even kind in the way she presents her ideas. By that I mean that when she writes, she talks to me as if I am an intelligent reader who can benefit from what she has to say. I am, I can, and I will. You will, too. Really.
Do you crave alone time and feel physically and emotionally drained? Do you ruminate so much your brain aches and find that you just want to escape?
If you (1) have no tolerance for small talk and socializing, (2) feel agitated, foggy, and overwhelmed, and (3) want to reenergize so you can be centered and sociable again, this book is for you -- written by an introvert just like you. Self-Care for Introverts gives you the tools to put yourself first so you can thrive and use your innate gifts to your advantage.
It's good to put yourself first and give yourself some TLC.
Introverts often feel guilty about taking care of their own needs for solitude and self-nurturing, especially when it seems everyone else is wired differently. You try so hard to "fake" your way as an extrovert, but it's exhausting and unnatural.
Fortunately, a new view of introversion confirms how valuable this personality type is in work environments, relationships, and society. Practicing self-care is a way of showing respect for yourself so you can be your best for others too.
Self-care tactics for your physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Self-Care for Introverts leads you on a path to self-awareness of your unique needs and why you must pull back to recharge and restore when your extroverted friends are still going strong.
You'll be prepared with specific, actionable ideas for taking proper care of your body, mind, and spirit so you can return to work and life with joy and vitality -- and enjoy socializing on your terms.
