Most of us know that loving ourselves would be a good idea, but we have no clue what that really means. Self-love feels too vast, too esoteric, and frankly like something you should keep under wraps.

This breakthrough book on self-love changes all that by taking you beyond the idea of loving, valuing, and caring for yourself into daring acts that will help you experience it. Christine Arylo provides practical, fun ways to explore and embody the ten branches of self-love every day and in every part of your life. Reading this book is like receiving permission to treat yourself as a best friend would. Imagine having the power to:

• Give to yourself first, without guilt
• Shower yourself with loving words instead of criticism and comparison
• Go for your dreams with conviction and courage
• Choose the situations and relationships that make you happiest
• Discover and explore your deepest thoughts and desires — and act on them


“Written by the Queen of Self-Love herself, this witty, soulful book makes loving yourself not only possible but fun.”
Marci Shimoff, New York Times bestselling author of Love for No Reason

“Christine Arylo turns the elusive task of learning to love yourself into a concrete, how-to, doable path that anyone can master. This is by far one of my all-time favorite books.”
Rhonda Britten, Emmy Award winner and author of Fearless Living

Madly in Love with ME is like a magic elixir — just the potion we need to recapture that powerful, transformational force of loving ourselves fully and fiercely.”
Meggan Watterson, author of Reveal

“Christine Arylo can help you know yourself, accept yourself, delight in yourself, and love yourself for real and for keeps. The result: you’ll shine more light, radiate more charisma, generate more power, and have more fun.”
Victoria Moran, author of Creating a Charmed Life

“Much more than a self-help book, Madly in Love with ME is an illuminated self-love guidebook that shows you exactly how to love yourself well and live your happiest life — no matter what.”
SARK, artist and author of Glad No Matter What

“There’s a difference between liking yourself and loving yourself; there’s a difference between self-esteem and self-care. Transformational teacher Arylo has made a career out of teaching women what those differences are....[This book] unflinchingly affirms every woman’s right to love and care for herself first. Arylo makes the case with such enthusiasm and logic that, by the time the reader gets to the Forty Day Self-Love Practice protocol at the end of the book, it’s difficult not to sign on and give it a try....A terrific gift for special women.”
Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight

“Arylo’s (Choosing ME before WE) unabashedly positive, step-by-step workbook is designed to help women take the compassion, appreciation, and care one would lavish on a companion, and redirect it inward. The author rescues the notion of 'self-love' from the reductive realms of masturbation, narcissism, and days at the spa, and presents it instead as a fruitful alternative to the incessant reprimands to sacrifice. Arylo is an enthusiastic mentor, and she offers plenty of creative tips for creating self-love, from going on a nice date (by yourself), working on a self-love–centered art project, and taking a love bath. For those made uncomfortable by the admonishment to 'vigorously love-loofah yourself,' she also provides practical exercises, such as quizzes, suggestions for how to productively rephrase ideas of oneself, and inspiring affirmations and 'love truths' to guide readers on their journey....Arylo’s warm, fun, and informative handbook contains deep truths.”
