Project You: More Than 50 Ways to Calm Down, De-stress, and Feel Great

Aubre Andrus, with Karen Bluth, illus. by Veronica Collignon. Switch, $14.95 trade paper (160p) ISBN 978-1-63079-091-2
Andrus offers more than 50 ideas for handling stress and enhancing one’s well being. Suggestions include mindfulness exercises and yoga, as well as practical tasks that aim to revitalize the mind and body, such as volunteering, having a cup of tea, spending time with animals, and listening to music. Collignon provides breezy watercolor images of (mostly) girls taking part in the activities, intermixed with photographs of girls practicing yoga poses, writing in journals, and more. Many of the ideas are intuitively obvious (“listen to happy music”); guided sections on meditation and visualization may prove more enlightening. And for readers who “need more help than this book can offer,” Audrus includes a list of mental health and other resources. Ages 14–up. (Sept.)
