Product Description

The Smart Girl''s Guide to Self-Care tackles the common problems of effective self-care with practical suggestions for practices that will create a sustainable, lifelong self-care routine. For those who are beginners to concepts like mindfulness, meditation, opposite action, positive rebellion, positive affirmations and radical acceptance, this book will provide a useful and comprehensive introduction. For those struggling from the trauma of emotionally abusive relationships, this book will guide you in recognizing the signs of abuse, creating a reverse discourse that challenges ruminations over the abuse, moving forward successfully after a break-up using no contact, and techniques on coping with trauma in constructive and meaningful ways. Each chapter of this book also provides a list of supplemental resources as well as a recommended reading list to guide you on this journey to greater self-love and self-care. Although this book is intended for everyone, its target audience is young women who are socialized to believe that their needs and wants don''t matter and that their relationships with others are much more important than the relationship they have with themselves. In order to have healthy, happy relationships with others, we must first cultivate healthy, happy relationships with ourselves and eradicate the toxic habits that deplete us of the self-love and self-acceptance necessary for a fulfilling life. You may be wondering: How is it possible to banish the browbeating bully inside your own head, influenced by all the bullies you''ve encountered in real life? How do you learn how to be more present in the moment rather than ruminating over the pitfalls of your past? How do you learn to love yourself, despite all of the experiences that tell you you aren''t even worthy of your own respect and appreciation? Using a patchwork of diverse techniques and practices, The Smart Girl''s Guide to Self-Care answers these questions through a holistic program of tending to the mind, body and spirit in healthier and more productive ways, serving as the portal to immense healing and enabling you to stage your own recovery and victory in ways you never thought possible.

I can''t believe I waited so long to order this. I had been wanting to check it out for a while, so I finally took the chance and I''m so glad I did. This is Not your typical self-help book (I''m a self-help junkie; believe me when I tell you I''ve read them all); you know how, normally, they can start to sound alike, telling you all kinds of obvious things you''ve heard before; or knowledge you can get anyplace? But this book is different! It is very succinct, getting right down to the true issues which lie at the heart of our struggles as women and girls at this moment in history, and the author talks about the things we are really struggling with but may have a hard time articulating to ourselves, and other people. This author is one of us; she is living it, and, b/c of some very traumatic events, was forced to take a journey of healing, and is now sharing with other women and girls the valuable things she found that helped bring out the truth and to heal. The author has struggled and fought with the exact issues we so desperately need to talk about, yet have no one who understands, to talk about them with. It goes into everything from Narcissism and some hard-won wisdom on how to recognize a toxic "friend" who may be betraying you despite wearing a false mask; to how to handle, put into perspective, and ultimately overcome, loneliness by allowing it to transform you into a greater person. Everything from self talk and how we relate to ourselves, to relationships, several dashes of science and biology, the people in our lives, nutrition, taking care of our brains through exercise/meditation, and healing past emotional wounds, is covered in a fresh, new dialogue that I found I benefited from in so many ways. I really appreciated how this author came to learn all of her valuable insights through her own personal experiences. I find that I sometimes receive limited doses of actual insight from the average self-help book, b/c they all seem to say the same things in a different way, but this book breaks that mold because the author is passionate about helping others and it does come through on the pages. This author knows that smart girls demand deeper insights than those normally found in self-help books for women and she delivers, in a big way. Whenever I read a chapter from this book, I find my spirits elevated, I feel more courageous and positive, and I know I can continue on the path to a happier, more whole life, despite what I am dealing with. Get it, girl, you will be glad you did:)

Ms. Arabi''s book is an invaluable resource for anyone seeking to cultivate healthier relationships in their life--romantic, platonic, and most importantly, the self. The first chapter dives into so many useful tips on how to enjoy being on your own, instead of relying on constant external stimuli. She lays out the differences between healthy social interactions and toxic ones. She also provides realistic, thoughtful suggestions on how to start enjoying alone time! From mindfulness to blogging to volunteering, you''ll start to see with every page that anyone can practice self-care.

Next up, she perfectly outlines the signs of people-pleasing behavior, and how we can go about transforming those habits into something more balanced & mutual. Again, she offers so many practical examples on how to do this. Later chapters go into living in the present moment and truly appreciating the beauty all around us. Of course, it''s difficult to do that when we''re doubting ourselves at every corner. One of her ideas that I really love is called "word replacement", where you essentially take any negative thoughts going through your mind, and replace the repeated critical words with something positive. At first it feels strange, but with time, it builds so much awareness about when your mind is going into a dark place and how you can start to step out of it!

Her writing on emotional abuse is spot on. From garden variety jerks to pathological manipulators, she covers it all! Be sure to check out the fifth chapter for a complete list of the warning signs, which can help anyone to recognize crazy-making behavior before it''s too late--to name a few: stonewalling, emotional withdrawal, triangulation, comparing you to others, hot and cold cycle, anxiety over his or her feedback... If any of these sound familiar to you, please read her book! It will help so much.

No matter what led you here, I guarantee that the ending to Ms. Arabi''s book will leave a big smile on your face. After finishing it, I felt hopeful, optimistic, and enthusiastic. This one will stay in my Kindle library forever, so I can always reference it on a difficult day. Thank you so much for writing it, and thank you for giving a voice to people everywhere who are still working on finding our own voice.

I wish I had gotten this book a LONG time ago; a long term marriage to a psychopath (and 3 grown estranged children now); I never really took care of myself, emotional/health/wellbeing wise. Everything I was, or had went to HIM and the boys. I am still learning about self-care, saying NO, boundaries and liking myself AS IS. Any survivor can use this book; I am 65, divorced and STILL LEARNING. She is a clear, easy to understand author. Buy this book!

The Smart Girl''s Guide to Self-Care is a master class in recovery from narcissistic abuse. I have every version of this book! I listened to the audio on a long drive and it was so detailed and full of important information, I wanted to take notes! I bought the Kindle version while I waited for the paperback to arrive. Really jam-packed with great advice for self-care, but also a thorough explanation of the impact narcissistic relationships have on your life. Shahida consistently delivers a wealth of information. I have several of her other books as well, and she knows everything you need to know to learn what happened, how to heal, and how to protect yourself in the future. Brilliant!

This book was my Bible. I was left so broken after being Love Bombed. This book helped me see how my childhood abuse helped put me in the hands of many bad guys the last one being the total nightmare. That guy and the recovery this book sent me on has changed my life for the better. It''s been a little over a year and I did many of the things she suggest. I have worked very hard and done other things my spirt has guided me to do also. I think this book is a great starting point I started at the beginning and used it like a manual. I understand my whole life now and am truly a very Happy person now. I have found a lot of peace and forgiveness. I am now starting The Smart Girl''s Guide To Self-Care. I have purchased 6 of these books and have given out it was key to my healing.

Overall, the book was not what I thought it''d be. It had great reviews on Amazon but unfortunately I highly disagree with others. The book had numerous typos throughout, which was highly annoying. And, the matieral covered was basically repeated throughout the entire book.
