This  book focuses on the lived experiences of higher education professionals  working in the face of stress, pressure and the threat of burnout and  how acts of self-care and wellbeing can support, develop and maintain a  sense of self.

In considering the place of self-care  in higher education, we are challenged with the tension that exists when  it comes to the valuing of self-care and our individual and collective  wellbeing. In Reflections on Valuing Wellbeing in Higher Education,  authors present and explore the ways in which they manage and reframe  their wellbeing and self-care, through mindfulness, compassion,  connection to breath, ref lection, demonstrating individual and  collective embodiment and resistance to neoliberalism and environmental  destruction. Covering various contexts of higher education, such as  learning and teaching, research, leadership and engagement, this book  offers practical strategies grounded in literature and evidence-based  research.

The self in self-care is relational. It is  not just about self. We need others for inspiration, motivation and,  indeed, the act. This book will be of great interest to professionals  and researchers specifically interested in studies in higher education,  wellbeing and/or identity as well as those navigating a career in higher  education.
