What thoughts come to mind when you hear the words "Self-Care?" Perhaps eating a meal chocked full of fresh fruits and vegetables, a relaxing massage, or a challenging workout?
You're worthy of feeling well, doing purposeful work, experiencing great love, and living a life that excites you. Change begins in the mind, and when we believe in our worth and truly love ourselves, our habits will begin to translate that message.

On the days I practiced, I noticed I was able to progress through the rest of my day less hurried, calmly responding to unexpected (even inconvenient) speed bumps I encountered throughout the day. I was far more aware of how I was feeling, what I was needing, and how to best handle various situations. Holding onto pieces of my meditation throughout the day, I could actually feel my stress lose much of its power!Read More
