Self-care is probably one of the things we neglect to do for ourselves. With so much going on and taking care of your family, it can be easy to forget about yourself or maybe you are too tired. I have three great tools that can help you carve out some special time for you. Tools that can help you accomplish the things you want to accomplish or at least get the wheels turning.

The title of the book with photographs Richard Austin says it all. It's the little things in life that we should appreciate and embrace. I love that this book includes inspirational mantras and quotes that can help you get through a tough day. Plus, the pictures of the adorable pigs book just makes you love animals!
Witness heart-melting, full-color images of mini pigs—lounging on tiny beach chairs, getting creative with paint, nuzzling other farm animals, popping out of flower bushels—paired with inspiring quotes. One of my favorite quotes from this book is “If we don't have a sense of humor, we lack a sense of perspective. – Wayne Thiebaud”.
Keep Working. Keep Playing. Keep Creating
This is the theme of Keep Going: 10 Ways to Stay Creative in Good Times and Bad, written by NY Times bestselling author, Austin Kleon. Austin offers his most inspiring work yet, with ten simple rules for how to stay creative, focused, and true to yourself—for life.
Keep Going is another example of enjoying the simple things in life, helping others, being open to different perspectives, and learning more about yourself. There are so many great points in this book that make you really re-evaluate how you think and act.
