Even though we've talked about self-care in a previous episode of the podcast, we thought it was important to return to this topic and touch on a very specific aspect of self-care and how it relates to self-love. That's right. Taking care of yourself is the ultimate act of self-love. By making time for yourself and putting your needs at the top of the list, you are showing yourself (and your Self) love and compassion. Because when you don't, it leads to feelings of depletion, resentment, anger, and living out of alignment. All things that we've experienced when we fail to put our own needs first. So grab a (hot) cup of something and settle in for an intimate discussion around self-care and how it translates to loving up on ourselves.

We’d love to hear from you!
