You're Doing Great!: Self-Care, Affirmations, and Meditations for Stressed-Out Humans (Hardcover)
I can't tell you how many times I've wanted a "manual for life", and so far this is as close as I've ever got to that. As a weird-thinker, taking care of myself and my emotions, my self worth, tends to fall to the wayside, and finding ways to take care of myself that work, has been a challenge. While this book isn't perfect nor comprehensive, Vida and her adorable helpers have more than enough 'out of the box' ideas that will at the VERY least be useful tools in your kit.

A full-color illustrated book filled with friendly and whimsical illustrations, creative prompts, and healing meditations for readers searching for quiet and calm in this loud and overwhelming time.
We're so excited that you are here!
Vida Rose, a queer and neurodivergent creator, narrates short animations of whimsical doodles on her TikTok and Instagram, offering practical self-care advice for tired, stressed, and overwhelmed scrollers. Her expressive and simple style of line-art drawing and her soothing tone are both comforting and practical, affirming and thought-provoking.
In this colorful book featuring all new illustrations, her noodle-armed characters—called "helpers"—guide the reader through common human concepts and experiences: body care, emotions, energy, createivity, transitions, forgiveness, and love. Each chapter offers contemplations, creative prompts, meditations, and coping skills around one of these themes.
