2021 SELECTIONS

All 2021 books were personally selected to reflect the word of the year: balance.  

These books explore how stress and burnout impact our lives, and how vulnerability, self-compassion and boundaries are useful in counteracting these effects. Included in this list are books that share wisdom on counselling, nature, creativity and happiness.
