Calming Reads and Self Care

We find ourselves in uncertain and unprecedented times.  Adapting to this abrupt new way of living necessitates working from home, social-distancing yourself, home schooling your children, or dealing with the real threat of losing your job -- major life challenges.  All this, added to the central worry about the health and safety of you and your loved ones, that of your immediate community, and the world itself, has exacerbated stress to maximum levels.  Now is the time to find ways to reduce panic, stay in tune with your body, and create space for self-care.  Here are some books we recommend that can provide helpful ideas to find calm within the chaos, rediscover the art of solitude, and if all else fails, make a delicious cocktail.
