Self-care guide

Minnetonka author and mother of four Julie Burton is coming out with an encouraging book for moms this May.

The Self-Care Solution: A Modern Mother's Must-Have Guide to Health And Well-Being ($16.95) includes Burton’s own highly personal postcards from the edge of parenting (and the consequences of self-neglect) as well as insights from hundreds of other mothers from across the country.

Burton, a yoga instructor who writes for a variety of national publications (including her own Unscripted Mom blog), offers real solutions and strategies for physical, emotional and relationship self-care.
