Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Blurb:

A few years ago, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie received a letter from a dear friend from childhood, asking her how to raise her baby girl as a feminist. Dear Ijeawele is Adichie’s letter of response.

Here are fifteen invaluable suggestions–compelling, direct, wryly funny, and perceptive–for how to empower a daughter to become a strong, independent woman. From encouraging her to choose a helicopter, and not only a doll, as a toy if she so desires; having open conversations with her about clothes, makeup, and sexuality; debunking the myth that women are somehow biologically arranged to be in the kitchen making dinner, and that men can “allow” women to have full careers, Dear Ijeawele goes right to the heart of sexual politics in the twenty-first century. It will start a new and urgently needed conversation about what it really means to be a woman today.

THE INFLUENCE OF MENTAL HEALTH ON FINANCIAL WELLBEING

We live in a society where mental health is prevalent – in a positive way. There’s never been more information and resources available to help us better understand and promote our mental health, from normalising therapy and meditation podcasts to embracing self-care.

However, while we examine the link between our mental health and our physical, emotional, and social well-being, we believe there is a relationship between our mental health and our financial well-being that is rarely discussed but crucial to examine.

While money and mental health are inextricably linked, financial stress and anxiety affect a higher percentage of people, negatively affecting our mental and physical health.

Today, we’ll look at the connection between mental health and financial well-being and how the two can have a big impact on our lives, for better or worse. In addition, I’ll share personal tips and strategies for dealing with life’s stressors so that we can live more peaceful, fulfilling, and healthy lives.
