“One thing's for sure: the next weeks you can find me with a pen, Marieke's book and a blanket on the couch. Not because I have to due to a mental disease, no! Because I'm looking forward to some quality time with this beautiful book."

"I have the book in front of me and I'm so happy with it. Tomorrow I'll also order this book for two friends. This is the most amazing book: so sweet and especially so comforting"
A follower on Facebook

"Three reasons to read this book: You'll learn on a playful way how to get out a burn-out or depression, you'll receive tips for a better feeling (state) and you learn to listen to your heart and body."
Psychologist and writer Carien Karsten in 'Psychologie' Magazine (national magazine)

"Wow what a lovely book! Straight from the heart, full of love, encouraging, positivity (even though it's about a negative situation), lovingly inspiring and especially a lot of practical exercises and tips. I would definitely recommend this book, even when you're not experiencing a heavy burn-out. Thank you!"

"A wonderful book with space, light, beautiful drawings, honest and personal experiences that were I found a lot of recognition. Marieke shares in a loving and light-hearted way her experiences and tips that helped her get out of the depression. She encourages with really good and tips, quotes and drawings that made me smile. Recognisable and beautiful!"

"I've gifted the book to a friend that went through rough times. She's really thankful and enjoys the honest and authentic way it's written. She recognised many situations and thoughts. The combination of powerful words and exercises gave her a lot of support.
Even though I'm not suffering from depression, I've ordered more books for myself and my teams at work as it's such a positive vibe that I can recommend to anyone."




"Finally a book that helps me through the days when I don't visit my psychologist. Nobody talks about this, but Marieke does! A lovely book for people that can use the extra support during times of burn-out and depression!"



"The book is full of life-lessons, also for those who don't suffer from burn-out. Things 'how to take care of yourself?', really special!"
"This looks nice, I want a burn-out!"
