My Wellness Toolbox by Alison Swift ~ Self Help Book Review

Book Description: 

Introducing My Wellness Toolbox, an innovative and amusing guide on how author and real-life example, Alison Swift, learned to cope and overcome her crippling anxiety. Contained within the book are 26 tools Alison has collected along the highs and lows of her journey. These include: Water, Daily Self Care, NO, Gratitude, and Affirmations.

These (largely free) tools are tried, tested and still proven daily by Alison and others, from simple everyday worriers to those dealing with serious anxiety and depression, and are discussed in each chapter in a colloquial tone that helps build an encouraging rapport between Alison and her reader. Although Alison’s toolbox may be slightly different to yours, she hopes this will be a launchpad that will propel the reader into a changed and better life. Readers who are battling with their own mental health challenges, as well as those interested in affecting a more positive outlook, will enjoy this humorous guide with its surprisingly powerful tools.

This is a great little book that can easily be read in one sitting (I just did that) or can be flipped through to the Tool you want to use or learn about. Each tool is a new chapter of only a few pages - not super in depth but a good idea on how each can be used and help one with anxiety. A lot of the tools the author writes about are ones I have learned over the years with dealing with my own anxiety and others are new ones I may not have used or known about. I would like to one day try Rieki, I do sometimes go for a massage and really find they help. 

This would make a great gift for friends and family, also a great book to keep on hand to remind us that there are tons of different tools we can add to own our Wellness Toolbox. It is easy to say you will do them when you are stressed or anxious but putting them into everyday life helps make it easier to use when really needed or also helps to relieve stress before it gets out of hand. 

I give this self help book a 4 out of 5 stars. I have received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
