From our home life, to local businesses, to the state of our world — the pandemic has forced us to pivot in more ways than one. The new normal is still evolving and the only thing we know for certain is that change is the only promised constant in life.

Change is here and this book will help navigate you to your most authentic self as you discover your truth in the midst of change. Similar to how we train our muscles through working out, this five-week course will train your mind to develop habits that will support you to thrive in ever-evolving environments. This summer season is yours to conquer! Listen to the beat of your drum and grow while being at peace with a slightly different… but same you.

MICROCOSM PUBLISHING | BOUNDARIES CONVERSATIONS DECK
For everyone that’s tried to get into a new self-care routine but ended up dropping it like a bad habit, we hear you. Summer is mostly synonymous with full calendars and endless parties, making time for yourself seem like an impossible thing to do. But carving out some me-time during this hectic season can make a world of difference. It’s the soul’s tropical holiday — an opportunity to take a step back and practice self-compassion by reminding yourself that your needs are important, too!
We are firm believers that happiness is a consistent practice & self-care is paramount to a balanced life. This month’s Happiness Boosting Activity, the Boundaries Conversation Deck: What Would You Do?, includes 52 cards that will prompt reflection and conversation about your and others’ boundaries, needs, consent, and relationships. Think and ask yourself — what are your deal breakers? What are your values, needs, and desires? What is your personal definition of consent? What would you do if someone stole your place in line? What if a friend says you’ve hurt them? There are no right or wrong answers, only your answers. This deck will help you reflect on your past as you create strategies for recognizing your triggers, relating your boundaries to others, and communicating ideas more effectively in the future.
