Girls’ Guide is the antidote to today’s overwhelming world of altered photos, filters and fillers. With more than 1 in 3 teenage girls suffering from anxiety or depression as well as a huge rise in self harm and eating disorders, the need for a rock-solid wellbeing resource has never been more acute.
Self-esteem is such a brittle thing. Moreover, at a time when self-esteem in young girls has never been so low and the noise of ‘social’ can permeate every hour of their day, it’s never been more important for them to understand that wellbeing is an inside job.
A Girls’ Guide to Being Fearless is a book of our time, reflecting the world as it is. There’s little value in telling girls to stop doing selfies or using Instagram filters, because these habits are ingrained in teenage culture. The value lies in teaching young women how to retain control of their wellbeing, knowing how to respond, developing strategies to bounce back, and learning to be their own bestie – and this book does just that!
It includes a host of practical exercises and do-able ideas to inspire young women to smash through self-limiting beliefs, lift themselves and each other up, love the skin they’re in, exude confidence and be excited for their future.
