Sometimes it’s hard to imagine how you can peel yourself up off the couch at the end of the day, and shift things in life to allow for more self-care. But self-care is where the mojo is – and you must know that or you wouldn’t be here. This is where our self-esteem, creativity and personal power all come from.

I begin this show by talking about developing compassion after a crisis – and how life-changing that can be. Especially when it extends to self-compassion. I then go on to share in the main body of the show about how to fit more self-care into a jam packed life.

This is for you if there’s just no-way-no-how you can find time to, say, exercise. Or take a nap. Or get your nails done. Or go on vacation. My friend, it all boils down to willingness.

Are you willing to take good care of you? That’s why we’re here today … so take a listen.
