ABOUT SELF-CARE FOR LATINAS
Prioritize your well-being with more than 100 exercises designed specifically to help Latinas revitalize their outlook on life, improve their mental health, eliminate stress, and self-advocate.

With Self-Care for Latinas, you’ll find more than 100 exercises to radically choose to put yourself first. Whether you need a quick pick-me-up in the middle of the day, you’re working through feelings of burnout, or you need to process a microaggression, this book is for you.In a world that works to devalue Latinas, it’s time to make the radical decision to prioritize you: your life, your joy, and your self-care.
