Why Track Self Care?

For self-help books to compliment your wellness toolbox worksheets, the best one I can recommend is The Holy Bible. There’s no other depression workbook or other tool that can help you overcome mental health issues like the Word of God.

I also highly recommend the Christian self-help books provided by In Touch ministries. Most of the books were written by the late Dr. Charles Stanley, a true man of faith.
