This is a book for anyone who is looking for an accessible and gentle way to care for their home - and themselves. KC Davis, therapist and busy mother of two, will introduce you to six life-changing principles to revolutionise the way you approach domestic work, all without a single to-do list. Inside, you'll learn how to stagger tasks to avoid procrastination, soothe stress by setting priorities, set up your space to work for you... and tackle that ever-mounting laundry pile. With KC's help, your home will feel like a sanctuary again.


Really good - written with diversity in mind, short chapters, key points, and an overriding message to be kind to yourself. There are tips for dealing with your ‘care tasks’ when struggling with depresion, but even if you’re not, there’s some helpful advice. It made me rethink the way I approach some tasks and definitely to consider the way I talk to myself about what I’m managing to get done each day or not. Very insightful and useful book.
