If there's one thing Carrie Bradshaw didn't master in her beautiful Manhattan life it's self-care.

Like most of us, she rushed around from thing to thing, drank a few too many cocktails, smoked cigarettes, and dealt with the stress that came along with a career she loved and social calendar she loved more.

Little did she know that a few simple changes to her daily habits could drastically improve everything from her mood to her sleep to her ability to manage ups and downs of life - from lost jobs to lost relationships.

Thanks to Self-Care in the City, the busiest of urban people now have their very own handbook for learning how to bring a healthy dose of self-care into their busy, fast-paced lives.

No longer will you need to play the guessing-game of . . . how to squeeze a workout into a busy week or what dish to choose at a business dinner or how to relieve stress without reaching for a glass of wine.

Instead you have over 100 ways to address the common dilemmas of their everyday life, including:

- Way #1 Rethink Brunch: How to approach a fabulous weekend meal without overdoing it.

- Way #7 Tier Your Seamless: Method for making healthy-ish options your go-to when you're exhausted.

- Way #16 Drinking on Dates: Tips to navigate every blind date without drowning yourself in cocktails.

- Way #66 Quick Workouts for Biz Trips: How to keep up your workout routine no matter where you travel.

- Way #81 Noise at Night: Solutions for reducing stimulation and getting a great night's sleep.

- Way #82 Surviving the Subway: Insider secrets to stress-less on your daily commute.

No matter what you need help navigating, there's a tip or resource within immediate reach.

As you begin embracing these practices, you'll find that you have the power rise above the routines that diminish your beauty and focus, and fall in love with the wellness strategies that will not only make you feel unstoppable, but will also give you an edge.

Why I Wrote It: Self-Care in the City is a reflection of the health and wellness tricks I was able to discover during my experience living in New York City as a finance executive. That blended together with my professional expertise, work with countless clients and education in nutrition and exercise science and stress management makes this a book that every busy urban person needs on their night stand or nestled into their work bag.
