Ep 12: The Truth About Self-Care


Ah, self-care. We hear all about why we NEED self-care, all the time. But for many people, time feels scarce, and the idea of finding time to care for yourSELF is low on the priority list – I get it. Which is why this week, I’m sharing my thoughts on the truth about self-care. Here is a hint: it is THAT important. You might be nodding your head but still wondering, “I get it … but how?” The trick, for me, is to see this practice less as a luxury and more as a part of our daily maintenance.
