These are the times when self-care is most important and yet often forgotten, but just a few small moments can make a huge difference to how we feel, how we release emotions rather than bottle them up and how we ride the ups and downs. Practices include: Instant tension release exercises for the hands, shoulders, neck and facePre-bedtime rituals to help with disturbed sleep Breathing exercises to calm the nervous system and reduce anxietySoothing scentsReleasing stuck emotionsLearning how to relax and let goKeeping tech use healthyQuestions to reflect onAnxiety, fear, anger, uncertainty and grief are all addressed, while Suzy also explores how stress and emotional trauma are held in the body, and how these may be gently released through touch, movement and breath.

The practices included within are designed to promote healing and hope, and many are quick and easy for times when you feel exhausted or vulnerable so that you can both cope in the moment during tough times, then recover and restore after these difficult chapters of life. 'We will revive a weary body. We will refresh a tired mind.'
