These Delightful Mantras Will Encourage You to Never Give Up

Life can be strainful, we get it, but the important thing is to stay focused on the things that really matter: staying healthy, hopeful, and happy. Amsterdam based Illustrator, Alison Rachel, hopes to inspire you to do just that.

Her new illustration book, Recipes for Self-Love, is a compilation of thoughtful reminders to appreciate yourself, lend a helping hand to others and be kind to one another.

Based on her popular Instagram feed of the same name (496k followers and counting), Rachel’s book provides empowering images, accompanied by mantras that aim to bring out your inner goddess.

Her work also touches on the tangled subject of body acceptance, celebrating women’s bodies and encouraging viewers to feel at peace with themselves. Sounds like a good enough deal for us!
